Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke has publicly addressed her exit from the show.
Braunwyn, who confessed to being an alcoholic before coming out as lesbian, released the following statement to People.
“I’m incredibly sad to not be able to come back to The Real Housewives of Orange County next year. I loved every moment of being a Housewife, and am so proud of my time on the show – the good, the bad, and the in-between. I was able to get sober and stay sober on reality TV. That is something for which I will forever be grateful. And I came out, becoming the first gay Housewife in the franchise’s history," she said.
“I know I may have been too much for some, and that’s okay. I am real, and I am happy being me. I’m so grateful to those who have stood by me. There is a lot more to my life, and I hope you’ll stick with me on this journey as I move forward in my next chapter,” Braunwyn added.
