Braunwyn Windham-Burke is not deterred by a broken heart from seeking love. Less than three weeks after her breakup with Victoria Brito, the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum was photographed holding hands with her first lover, Kris, in photographs obtained exclusively.
On Wednesday, while on a romantic dinner date, Windham-Burke, 44, and her ex-lover (whose last name has not been revealed) took a stroll around Downtown Los Angeles.
In addition, they attended a private screening and Q&A at Cages.
The former Bravolebrity donned a short black dress under a sports coat adorned with jewels, along with red heels and a black purse for the occasion.
Kris opted for black shoes and pants, a white tank top layered beneath a cream-colored button-down, and round sunglasses.
Windham-Burke, who is still legally married to Sean Burke, the father of her seven children, stated in an exclusive video that she hopes to marry again in the future, but she must “get divorced first.”
“I continue to have faith in love,” she asserted. “I still believe in a happily ever after.”
When questioned if that would be the case with Kris, the reality star responded, “Kris and I have always been close. “Kris and I will always love one other,” I said, before Kris added, “We simply have a terrific connection.”
Last weekend, we got up with Windham-Burke in Southhampton, where she said it was “difficult” to put herself back out there after her “heartbreak” with Brito.
The “RHOC” alum and Brito called it split earlier this month after less than a year of marriage — and, according to Windham-Burke, “the most fantastic sex” ever.
“Long-distance relationships are difficult, and Braunwyn and Victoria were no exception. While they spent a lot of time in New York, they both had to travel frequently for work, according to a source.
“Recently, Vic had to travel much worldwide, and the resulting distance strained their contact.”
Windham-Burke had brief relationships in 2021 with Jamie Parton and fellow “RHOC” graduate Fernanda Rocha.
However, Kris was the ex-first celebrity's public romance since coming out as gay in December 2020.
Windham-Burke, who became sober in 2020's January, dated Kris from December of that year until April of the previous year.
Kris moved on shortly thereafter with “Pretty Wild” alum Alexis Neiers, but Windham-Burke was understanding.
“Both Alexis and Kris are amazing women,” said the reality star. I have a great deal of admiration for Alexis and her work in the LGBTQ+ and recovery communities; we have even collaborated!
She continued, “Her interpretation of the modern family is lovely, and Kris is a welcome complement.”
In the meantime, Windham-husband Burke's disclosed to us in April that he was “seeing someone new” without revealing the identity of his lady companion. Bella, Rowan, Jacob, twins Caden and Curran, Koa, and Hazel are shared by the previous spouse.
