Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Brauwnwyn Windham-Burke has announced that she and her husband are having a "trial separation."

The news comes weeks after she was fired from the show.

"We have decided jointly that we are going to take a few months apart," Braunwyn said on Instagram Live.

"We're going to see what that's like living apart for a while and Braunwyn's going to go back and forth…" Sean added.

Braunwyn says that the situation will be a healthy one for their children.

"What we are doing right now is really healthy for them. I am taking my kids for six or seven weeks, and when they come back, they will have a place at their father's," Braunwyn explained.

In December, Braunwyn was interviewed by GLAAD, where she came out as gay.

"I like women. I'm gay," she said. "I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community. It has taken me 42 years to say that but I am so proud of where I am right now. I'm so happy where I am. To be able to be comfortable in my own skin after so long is just so nice."

"I'm just now starting to feel like I'm becoming the woman I'm supposed to be," she added. "I've always known it, but it took me, personally, 42 years to be comfortable in my own skin to say that."
