If you’re going to mess with an attorney – be prepared for a response!
Braunwyn Windham-Burke recently made headlines after accusing both Kelly Dodd and Emily Simpson of unfollowing her due to her liberal political stance. On a recent episode of Getting Real with The Real Housewives podcast, Braunwyn was questioned about why Kelly and Emily unfollowed her to which she mused: “I don’t know why [they unfollowed me], but that’s weird. I have a guess. Emily and Kelly are both very conservative. They’re both Trump supporters [and] I am very vocal on my Instagram about what my beliefs are and I understand that a lot of people don’t like that.”
AllAboutTRH exclusively reached out to Emily Simpson and we received clarification as to the real reason why she unfollowed Braunwyn on social media. Emily’s full statement is below:
Let me be very clear, I did not unfollow Braunwyn because Of her political beliefs. I have studied and admired constitutional law; I believe everyone is entitled to the right to free speech and to express your beliefs freely. I unfollowed Braunwyn because she’s a hypocrite. Braunwyn has an uncanny knack for reeling people in and making them feel sorry for her then firmly requiring that people not judge her choices in life. She uses the terms “modern” and “progressive” to justify her own questionable life choices, while at the exact same time pointing fingers at others labeling them and harshly judging them.
For example, Braunwyn was very judgmental toward Gina for her decision to move in with Travis and made derogatory comments about Gina’s living situation. Braunwyn also doesn’t like Elizabeth and refuses to engage with her. I have no idea why and I find these antics to be blatantly mean and judgmental. Also, Braunwyn has stated that Kelly doesn’t deserve to celebrate her recent wedding because it’s her third marriage. Braunwyn’s judgement is directed at women and their personal life choices all while standing firmly on her soapbox and preaching about how she “empowers women”. The blatant hypocrisy is why I chose to unfollow her.
Braunwyn seems to be giving interviews left and right and has confirmed that she is not on speaking terms with the remainder of the cast. If that’s the case, it would be wise to confirm the reason for the feuds before making statements on air.
