Braunwyn Windham-Burke fired from RHOC

After a tough Season 15 for Braunwyn Windham-Burke, she was fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County. She had a tough time navigating the season while being newly sober and seeing a lack of support from some of her co-stars.

Her sobriety, coupled with her announcement that she was a lesbian, made it very tricky for her to be herself. She was doing okay, but the reunion made things even more complicated when it was revealed she offered Shannon Beador’s daughter something inappropriate.

As a result, she wasn’t asked back for Season 16. Braunwyn Windham-Burke has been busy living her best life. She has shared photos from traveling and spending a lot of time with her kids and family. She is still married and will continue to stay that way.

It seems that Braunwyn Windham-Burke still has friends across the franchises. Margaret Josephs sent her love above, and two former RHOC stars also showed up for her in the comments. It looks like Tamra and Braunwyn are still in contact, which is interesting.

We wish Braunwyn Windham-Burke all the best in her recovery.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
