Braunwyn Windham-Burke dropped a bombshell will filming herself hanging up clothing in her closet.

She revealed that she felt trapped in her home and in her marriage. This was shot back in May when the coronavirus pandemic shut the country down and right before George Floyd was killed.

Both of those events took center stage on the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but the biggest jaw-dropper was Braunwyn admitting she felt “trapped” in her marriage to Sean Burke.

Was Braunwyn’s comment what caused Sean to move out?

What is next for Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Sean Burke?

Recently, Braunwyn came out as a lesbian. This has been something she has alluded to on the show in recent confessionals, but it has not yet been worked out on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

In the previews for the next episode of RHOC, Braunwyn opens up to Gina Kirschenheiter about not having sex with Sean. It had been a while since they were intimate, which was clearly bothering her.
