Braunwyn Windham-Burke Slammed By Daughter Amid Divorce Rumors

Something fishy is definitely going on in that nine-person household...

The upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is set to premiere in a few weeks, however, sophomore Housewife Braunwyn Windham-Burke's family is going through a dramatic time off-camera. If I had to quarantine with eight other people, I'd be going fucking crazy too.

Braunwyn's social media drama started after she shared a post about "co-parenting and divorce" and invited her followers to discuss the topics with her during an upcoming “mental health check-in” on IGTV.

Obviously, it would be strange for Brown Wind to talk about co-parenting and divorce when the last time we checked she was happily married to her husband and his statement necklaces, however, rumors have been swirling that the progressive couple is no longer together.

In a blind item posted by Deux Moi, someone claimed to have intel that a "West Coast" Housewife with a "solid family life" had split with her husband and noted that her Instagram may be dropping hints about the separation by posting about having a "hot girl summer" and her female friends. Braunwyn definitely ticks all these boxes of the blind item and now with her post about "co-parenting and divorce," she basically confirmed that she's no longer with her husband.

Word on the street (and by street I obviously mean Twitter) is that Braunwyn broke up with her husband Sean to explore her sexuality after she admitted on the last season of the show to being attracted to women. According to her BravoTV cast bio, on the upcoming season the other ladies "question her choices" after Braunwyn's friend Shari moves in with her during quarantine, so maybe she has something to do with the alleged breakup?

Following Braunwyn's strange post about "co-parenting and divorce," her daughter Rowan (the one that dances and has OCD) posted a photo to Instagram with the caption "Fuck. You. Mom." so it's pretty clear that they aren't getting along right now.

I don't know if Rowan blames her mom for the alleged separation or if she's just lashing out after being locked in a house with eight other people for months on end, but something is definitely up.

Braunwyn then took to her own Instagram story asking for fans to be "understanding" as her family works through some challenging circumstances and said 45 million Americans experience mental health issues, obviously alluding to her daughter's post. The OC Housewife then stated that she will share more information with the public once the time is right.

Only a few days before this family social media drama, Braunwyn posted a selfie with her husband on her Instagram story with the caption "date night."

Although this may be their way of squashing the divorce rumors, I think there's definitely truth to this separation situation. I guess we'll have to wait until Brown Wind does press for the new season to get a solid answer on this entire ordeal.
