Much like Gina’s ex-Matt Kirschenheiter, Braunwyn cheated on her husband Sean during a rough patch in their marriage.
Unlike many of their co-stars, Braunwyn says she understands Gina being intimate with Matt despite their split because she’s been there.
“Sean and I almost got divorced,” Braunwyn revealed. “So when she was going through this, I was like, ‘Hey, we’ve been through infidelity. We have gone down this road, and Sean and I have gotten stronger.”
“I cheated on Sean,” Braunwyn confessed to an off-screen producer while co-star Shannon Beador looked stunned by the news. “We separated. I took the kids. He was with someone else too.”
“We were in two different homes,” she added. “I went to Hawaii. I took the kids. I enrolled them in school. I told Sean I was done. I just didn’t want to be a single mom anymore. He traveled 25 days out of the month.”
However, Braunwyn notes that her affair was “very PG” and that she only wanted someone to listen to her.
Eventually, she and Sean got back together. Braunwyn says, “after a few months,” Sean flew to Hawaii to get her back.
“He got down on one knee and re-proposed to me. He had quit his job. He was the president of a very successful company. He sold his shares, and he walked away, and he became a stay-at-home dad for like eight years. He said, ‘I’d rather choose you guys than my work.’”
Then the RHOC couple worked on their marriage for “years.”
Now, instead of cheating, the couple occasionally dabbles in threesomes.
