After Bravo dropped its midseason trailer for 'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 15, there was drama everywhere. The trailer gave us a peek of a fight between Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her husband Sean Burke. The clip showed Sean confronting his wife for treating him like her roommate who she didn't want to live with rather than her husband. Later, we see Braunwyn admitting that she is in love with a woman.

Following the release of the midseason trailer, Braunwyn took to her Instagram to post a picture of herself thanking GLAAD for interviewing her and declaring that she's a proud member of LGBTQ+ community. "t feels so good to finally be living my truth. I am a lesbian. At 43 years old, I’ve finally been able to accept this part of myself and I’ve realized there are no rules about when someone should come out. This is my time.Thank you @GLAAD for the support and for the interview. I’m proud to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community," the housewife posted on Instagram

Unfortunately for Braunwyn, viewers of the show seem to be having a hard time accepting her coming out as lesbian. Several users took to their Twitter with speculations of the housewife coming out as lesbian just for the storyline. A user tweeted, "Hot take: Braunwyn is a narcissist just like her mother. I don’t believe any of her storylines (alcoholic, lesbian), something is really off here #rhoc." Another user wrote, "@braunwyn also happens to come out as a lesbian the same day that is mentioned in the coming up this season bit on #RHOC. She’s not coming out she’s making a storyline - god forbid the spotlight would stray from her - please fire this narcissist."



 

 



 

 

Many users felt bad for her husband and children. A user shared, "I feel horrible for her husband and her kids. she just celebrated 20 years now all of a sudden she is lesbian. ok." Another user pointed, "It took a tv show for her to realize she's a alcoholic then announce that her son is a a drag, and now she's a lesbian with 20 kids! Desperate for fame!." "I’m a little confused how Braunwyn from #rhoc is now saying she’s a lesbian. For someone who doesn’t like men and never did apparently, you have a whole lot of kids (7, for anyone who isn’t familiar). Wow, you must have really hated making all those babies with that man.," expressed a fan.
