Braunwyn Windham-Burke only lasted two seasons on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but many viewers continue to keep up with her life.
She revealed that she was an alcoholic and gay after introducing herself to the world as a happily married mother of seven. Her drinking was showcased on the show, but that is a staple across the franchises and leads to free-flowing drama.
While Braunwyn remained married to Sean Burke following her coming out, she filed for divorce in October. The couple was dating other people and learning to adjust to their lives apart from each other but keeping their kids’ feelings in perspective.
It seems that financial issues are popping up for the mom of seven, as she filed for spousal support and revealed their co-parenting relationship is no longer what it was.
According to the US Sun, Braunwyn Windham-Burke is nearly broke, with only $2900 in her accounts. She revealed she was “unable to care” for her children and provide for their basic needs, despite wanting them to remain with her and see Sean for visitation.
The former reality TV star only worked for two years during their relationship and marriage, which was the time she spent filming The Real Housewives of Orange County.
