By Hannah Fusaro

Braunwyn Windham-Burke and husband Sean Burke have been together for a long time and have seven children — but The Real Housewives of Orange County couple have definitely dealt with bumps all along the way.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

"We fought for our family because Sean and I almost got divorced," Braunwyn said on The Real Housewives of Orange County After Show, noting that she was initially supportive of Gina Kirschenheiter reconciling with her ex-husband. "So when she was going through this, I was like, hey, we've been through infidelity. We've gone down this road and Sean and I came back stronger, so I support you," Braunwyn said.

She then shared their own personal story of infidelity. "I cheated on Sean," Braunwyn revealed. "We separated. I took the kids. He was with someone else too. We were separated, we were in two different homes. I went to Hawaii; I took the kids, I enrolled them in school. I told Sean I was done. I just didn't want to be a single mom anymore. He traveled 25 days a month."

Braunwyn said while in Hawaii, she dated a man but kept it "very PG." "We surfed together, we would go for walks, and I wasn't ready for anything more but it was just nice to have someone listen," she said.

So how did these two find their way back to each other? Braunwyn explained, "After a few months, he flew out to Hawaii and he got down on one knee and re-proposed to me. He had quit his job; he was the president of a very successful company. He sold his shares and he walked away and he became a stay-at-home dad for like eight years. He said I would rather choose you guys than my work."

In fact, Braunwyn calls that time in their relationship "the best thing that ever happened."
