BRAUNWYN Windham-Burke and her girlfriend Fernanda have called it quits after announcing their relationship this past February, and she has confirmed her current status with her ex Sean.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star has opted for an unconventional “open marriage” with her husband of more than 20 years.
Braunwyn, 43, has broken up with her former co-star Fernanda Rocha, 44, after causing waves with their relationship this past Spring.
The reality star opened up about their status in a conversation with Us Weekly where she explained that they’re in a “transitional period.”
“Fernanda and I, we’re in a transitional period. I mean, I’ve been gone for three months so while we still stay in contact, we haven’t seen each other in a long time.
“So I fly back home and we’re going to a party together. It’ll be the first time I see her, but we are definitely open to other things in our life,” she revealed.
Braunwyn then clarified that their romantic connection was over, saying: “I’m single. Okay, yes!”
The TV personality has been married to her husband Sean Burke for over two decades, and the couple share seven children Bella, 20, Rowan, 18, Jacob, 15, twins Curran and Caden, 8, Koa, 6, and Hazel, 3.
However in December of 2020, the Bravo star came out publicly as a lesbian, and the couple decided to date other people.
Despite the unconventional status of their marriage, Braunwyn and Sean have continued to co-parent their brood amicably.
“It’s great,” she said of their relationship.
“I mean, we really are nailing the co-parenting thing. We are best friends. We’ve been together for 26 years.
“He understands that like this has been a dream of mine forever, so he’s supportive!”
Braunwyn then disclosed that she and her man have no plans of “divorce” as they have found happiness in having an “open marriage.”
“I don’t think we’re going to get divorced, honestly. I truly don’t think we’re going to.”
She continued: “We get along great, we have an open marriage — it’s working for us. We’re happy.”
In June, Braunwyn confirmed that she was dating former RHOC star Fernanda Rocha, telling Us Weekly: “I’m dating Fernanda. The first time that we went from friends to maybe a little more — and, like, barely more — was in February.
“We did not start dating until a month after she filed for divorce [from Tessa Rocha].”
The TV star added that their own relationship was also of open nature, telling the publication: “We can both date other people. She just got out of a marriage. We’re both in our forties.
“You know, we really love the time we spend together. She’s amazing. She’s an amazing person, but neither one of us is rushing into labels. … We don’t need to label [the time] we spend together.”
In July, Braynwyn and Fernanda were spotted on a romantic beach vacation to Miami.
The two flaunted their fit figures as they enjoyed the sun and surf on the Florida coastline.
The now exes were even caught packing on the PDA as they lounged on the sand.
