It looks like Sean Burke may be moving on almost two months after his wife Braunwyn Windham-Burke came out as a lesbian.
The Real Housewives of Orange County husband was spotted out with his rumored new girlfriend in Newport Beach, CA, on December 28.
An eyewitness tells the DailyMail.com that the pair were canoodling at Jan’s Health Bar and that Sean appeared to be “smitten” with his new girlfriend.
The source said: “He was with this girl making out, he was grabbing her a**, and he was really handsy. They were very up against each other, hanging out.”
Sean’s new relationship is two months old, according to one insider.
Braunwyn and Sean have been presenting a united front to the public regarding their modern marriage; however, it seems there may be trouble in paradise.
A source says that Braunwyn isn’t handling Sean’s new relationship well despite her being in her own relationship with girlfriend Kris.
The RHOC star reportedly caught Sean’s new girlfriend in his bed at their family home. She has also allegedly been telling her RHOC castmates that she’s “done with Sean” and “never found him attractive.”
“It came up during the reunion that there was a woman Bronwyn found at home, with him [Sean] – sleeping in his bed,” a source said of the situation. “[Braunwyn] was telling the other girls that she’s done with Sean, and she doesn’t want to be with him.”
“[Braunwyn] also said she was never, ever attracted to him. Even though they’ve had seven kids together and have been together 26 years,” the source added before noting the mean comments Braunwyn has made about Sean.
“Imagine saying that to your husband and father of your children. She was pushing all of his buttons – I’m going to live my way, my way, my way. But you are still going to be at my beck and call, and you are not going to be able to live the way you want to live,” noted the source.
The insider added: “The other girls are disgusted with the things she was saying about her husband. There were huge fights about how can you do this to somebody?”
Braunwyn previously said she would be “heartbroken” if Sean started dating someone else, noting that she is extremely “jealous.” She later clarified her comment and told Us Weekly that she’s fine with Sean dating but would be “heartbroken” if he fell in love, married, and started a new family with someone else.
She said, “Dating someone and falling in love and starting a new life are two very different things. If Sean dated someone, that’s great. I support that. I think he should be. If Sean fell in love and started a new life, started a new family, yes, that would be heartbreaking.”
“We’ve been together [for]26 years. We’ve been together since we were children. And I think that people kind of forget that it’s not just that we’re married, we’ve been together since we were kids,” she continued. “We are family. We are each other’s people. We are closer to each other than anyone else.”
However, sources say Braunwyn and Sean are not as close as they used to be. Friends of the couple say Braunwyn only has herself to blame if Sean moves on for good.
One friend explained, “She has made herself notorious on the show but has nothing to show for it – all she’s done is destroy her family.”
“And now he has this other woman. She kind of positioned their open relationship to be her thing, but she’s now realized you can’t do it that way because he is a man, and he is going to move on,” the friend added. “He is a good guy, and she can be so intense; she’s not always a person you want to be around.”
Part one of the two-part RHOC season 15 reunion airs on Wednesday, Jan. 20 (my birthday, lol) at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
