Braunwyn Windham-Burke The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki Gunvalson Shades Sean Windham-Burke For Wearing Heels To Charity Event; Braunwyn Claps Back and Defends Her Husband

Vicki Gunvlason is STILL throwing shade at her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars despite being fired.

The OG of the OC called out Braunwyn Windham-Burke‘s husband Sean for wearing red heels.

On her Instagram stories, Vicki shared a photo of Braunwyn and Season with the caption, “Does anyone else see what is on Sean’s feet?” 

It’s no secret that Vicki isn’t a fan of Braunwyn or her husband. Vicki has been openly critical of their lifestyle and their decision to share it on RHOC.

Well, Braunwyn wasn’t taking any of Vicki’s crap and quickly clapped back in defense of her husband.

It turns out that Braunwyn and Sean attended a charity event for The San Diego LGBT Community Center. For the event entitled, Tantrums & Tiaras, which was a drag show, Sean decided to wear red pumps with his back suit.

Braunwyn explained that Sean’s choice in footwear was in support of their 14-year-old son Jacob who  is “giving the world of Drag a try.”

“I woke up to a lot of DMs, a lot of questions from a lot of you and I just wanted to say, basically, why was my husband wearing heels,” Braunwyn said on her Instagram story Tuesday morning. “… [W]e were supporting my son who recently started showing an interest in drag and we were on our way to a fundraiser for the LGBT youth center in San Diego. And it was Sean’s way of supporting his son and all the other kids that the youth center helps. But, more importantly, it was a way to take something that so many are uncomfortable of and try to normalize it.”

She added that waking up to “all the hate that my husband’s getting for a pair of shoes sort of goes to show why this is so important. So, as long as a pair of shoes can be so pulverizing and divisive, it means we still have a lot of work to do because people aren’t understanding, people are judging.”


The RHOC newbie further defended Sean and their support of their son in the comments of her IG post.

It turns out not everyone had issues with Sean’s footwear choice. Braunwyn and Sean received praise on social media as well as support from co-star and friend Kelly Dodd.

The Real Housewives of Orange County are expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in mid-to-late 2020.
