Braunwyn Windham-Burke Opens Up About Sobriety; Reveals Husband Sean Moved Out of Their Family Home Plus, Hints She May Not Return For Season 16

Getting real!

Braunwyn Windham-Burke is getting real about several aspects of her life!

The Real Housewives of Orange County star recently opened up about her sobriety journey.

“258 days, one day at a time,” Braunwyn wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to everyone that helped me on my journey so far, @captainsandrayawn for giving me the courage to tell my story, to @evolutionusa for your unwavering support, and @tpkelly12 for telling this story as real and honestly as we could.”

She continued, “When we started this season, I was 12 days sober; we document the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the unfiltered reality. 9 months ago, my life was unmanageable, but today I’m happier [than] I’ve ever been, living life honestly on life’s terms. #sober #onedayatatime #bestchoiceever.”

During the season 15 premiere of RHOC, Braunwyn first revealed that she was an alcoholic.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the RHOC star recently revealed that her husband Sean Windham-Burke has moved out of their family home.

While giving ET correspondent Lauren Zima a tour of her new 8,000-square-foot home, Braunwyn revealed she and Sean are no longer living together.

The Bravo star showed off her massive walk-in closet saying, “No one’s allowed in here, just me.”

“It’s actually interesting you say that because as I look around, I only see your clothes in here,” Zima said. “Is any man living in this home right now?”

“No,” Braunwyn replied.

“Your husband’s not living here right now?” Zima continued.

“No, he’s not. He’s not living here right now,” the mother of seven confirmed. “Love him dearly; we haven’t gotten along this well in a long time. We’re redefining what marriage means to us. Not following the old, antiquated rules anymore.”

“Does that kind of make things exciting?” Zima asked.

“So good, So good,” Braunwyn said.

“We’re finding a new normal. We’re renegotiating the terms of the contract when it comes to our marriage, for sure,” Braunwyn shared. “We are [and] we will be married forever. We have one hundred percent faith we are going to raise our kids and grandkids together.”

“That being said, do we have to fall into the social norms that everyone else does? No,” she added. “We’re doing it our own way. Like I said, [it’s a] modern marriage.”

“We had to have some really hard talks, don’t get me wrong. This has not been easy,” she continued. “We’ve definitely had hard times. So for us sometimes [we] can blow everything up to patch it back together.”

For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Braunwyn and Sean are separated and getting a divorce after the RHOC star posted about “co-parenting and divorce” on Instagram. One blind item alleged that the RHOC couple’s marriage was on the rocks due to Sean’s affair.

Week’s later, Braunwyn then gushed about her and Sean’s “modern marriage” is “always evolving” on social media.

On another note, Braunwyn also confessed that she might not be returning for season 16 since she’s on the outs with the entire RHOC cast.

“Currently, I’m not speaking to anyone on my cast,” she explained. “I think when you go through a change like this, it’s uncomfortable for people.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Thoughts on this all? We’re you surprised by Braunwyn’s alcoholism confession? Do you believe Braunwyn is telling the truth about her marriage to Sean?
