Braunwyn Windham-Burke has opened up on the support she has received in the aftermath of her decision to come out as a Lesbian.
‘Real Housewives of Orange County’: Braunwyn Windham-Burke Thankful For The Support She Received When She Came Out
The star of the Real Housewives of Orange County shook the internet during the back end of last year, when she revealed the truth about her sexuality, despite being married to her husband Sean Burke for over a decade. To make matters more controversial, the duo brought up several kids together. But rather than breaking up, they decided to stay in their marriage-allowing each other to go on to date additional partners.
Having said all that, Braunwyn thanked everyone who supported her during those tough times. During an interview with Us Weekly, she said: “I would say they’re the three housewives [Margaret, Heather and Leah ] that have really supported me the most when I came out.” And in keeping with their support, Braunwyn has decided to return the favour.
She recently announced the release of her new range of necklaces designed to support others who are hesitant in coming out. Braunwyn is hoping that this jewellery can have the positive impact of not placing pressure on people to speak about their sexuality but rather act as a symbol of their new-found status.
And she made sure that she sent her housewives a special range of those products. She added: “I think something like a necklace or bracelet kind of shows that I see you and I support you…This is my way of thanking them.” Braunwyn has vowed to continue helping others who may be going through a similar journey. This has also been seen through her radical lifestyle improvements.
She was very vocal about her prior drinking problems, and it was not helped by being on such a well-known TV show. Fast forward today, nothing could be any different. Braunwyn has been sober for over a year, and she is making sure that she can direct her energy in more positive ways. She continued: “As Housewives, we are gifted this amazing platform. That means so much to me and my family, it’s just such an honour.”
