"I love you. I'm proud of you. And I support you. Always," Sean wrote on Twitter after The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member addressed her sexuality and confirmed her new relationship with a woman in the conversation with GLAAD. Sean added, "For over 25 years I have loved and supported you, and I'm not about to stop."
Braunwyn and Sean have been together for over two decades and are parents to 7 kids. Braunwyn explained to GLAAD that the couple is still married and "in uncharted territory."
She said of their future, "I plan on staying married… We’re raising the kids together. He’s my best friend. He knows the girl I’m dating. Her name is Kris. I mean, we go to parties together! She came over the other night, hung out with the family, had dinner with us. I mean, it’s only as weird as you make it.”
The RHOC cast member also addressed her sexuality on Instagram, writing, “It feels so good to finally be living my truth. I am a lesbian. At 43 years old, I’ve finally been able to access this part of myself and I’ve realized there are no rules about when someone should come out. This is my time.”
Braunwyn also received messages of support from Bravolebs, past and present, who left comments on Instagram and Twitter.
