RHOC's Braunwyn Windham-Burke stopped having sex with husband Sean 'for a long time' before coming out as a lesbian

REAL Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke admitted she stopped having sex with husband Sean Burke "for a long time" before she came out as a lesbian.

The 43-year-old made the admission during Wednesday's episode of the Bravo show.

While on a trip with some of the other Real Housewives, Braunwyn opened up about how being sober and the coronavirus pandemic impacted her marriage with Sean.

She said:  "This Covid is really bad. We didn't have sex for a long time."

Braunwyn added that she and Sean were "passive aggressive" with each other.

Speaking about being stuck at home with Sean amid the pandemic, the RHOC star said: "It wasn't pleasant. Neither one of us were happy.

"I was like, 'Wow, I have to talk to Sean.' We went into it not knowing what the outcome was gonna be. Are we gonna stay together or not? Is this gonna work?

"We came out of it, we are gonna put in all the work we can."

After acknowledging that her husband loves her, Braunwyn added: "We’ve been through this.

"I did ask him before. Why didn't he take the kids and leave? And he said, 'Cause I was afraid you were going to die.'"

She concluded: "At the end of the day, we're gonna put everything we can into it and so I'm hopeful."

During last week's episode, Braunwyn said things were tense between her and Sean and even admitted to slapping him.

The mom-of-seven revealed that she is a lesbian earlier this month while appearing as a guest on GLAAD with Anthony Ramos.

Stating that she was relieved to share the news, Braunwyn said: "It's been something that everyone knows has been coming but I'm now comfortable enough to say that I like women, I'm gay! I'm a member of the LGBTIA+ community. I am a lesbian."

The Bravo star added: "It has taken me 43 years to say that and I'm so proud of where I am right now and I'm so happy where I am. To be comfortable to be in my own skin is just so nice."

After she came out, an insider told TMZ that Braunwyn "met her new girlfriend, Kris, on a dating app back in September and instantly hit it off, and they have been seeing each other romantically ever since."

Braunwyn and Sean renewed their wedding vows to celebrate their 20th anniversary during an episode of RHOC earlier this season.

Despite her long relationship with Sean, Braunwyn admitted that she's not "attracted to men."

She said that Sean is "her person" and she "loves him," though added that she has "never looked at men that way."
