“The Real Housewives of Orange County” 星, 43, spoke about how they have an open marriage ever since she came out as gay last year and pursued a relationship with a woman.
Windham-Burke and Burke decided to stay married and raise their seven children who range in age from 2 に 20 年.
“I had a relationship with a girlfriend that was platonic, but I fell in love with her,” Windham-Burke said on the People Every Day podcast.
ザ・ リアリティTV star was dating a woman named Kris but they broke up in early April.
“A lot of things were happening in my marriage at the time. Sean had someone else in our home, I had feelings for another woman, a lot of things were occurring off-camera at that time. And it basically kind of blew up,” she recalled.
“Sean and I had a very good, long, honest conversation, そして私は, ‘I want to be with a woman. This is what I want,'” the Bravo personality said. “We had known that I was bisexual for a long time, but some things had happened… I was sober, I was doing inventory, and I had, for the first time in my life, been with a woman, sober. … そして、私は, I’m not straight at all. I know this now.”
At the end of the most recent “RHOC” シーズン, Windham-Burke revealed she’s an alcoholic and admitted that has also taken a toll on her marriage.
“Some days have been great and some days have been really hard,” 彼女は言いました. “We are doing our best to navigate something that I’ve never seen done before. We do want to stay married, we do want to stay parents, we are best friends. And some days that seems very attainable, and some days it doesn’t.”
Windham-Burke confessed that even though she’s frequently asked about the status of her marriage she doesn’t have a clear answer.
“I can tell you how I am today, but yesterday was very different,” 彼女は言いました. “Yesterday was a very hard day in our house for us. Today’s a little bit better; we went on a trip and that was great. So we are navigating something in real time, and we’re not making any big decisions.”
