Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s fianceé, Jennifer Spinner, is no stranger to the Bravoverse. And we’re not just talking about her connection to The Real Housewives of Orange County alum.

Jennifer Spinner's Below Deck Mediterranean Cameo

How to Watch

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

Nearly a year before getting engaged to Braunwyn, the digital marketing and SEO expert was featured in Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7. Jennifer appeared in episodes 8 ("Wine Im-Pairing") and 9 ("Let Me Be Frank"), which saw her and other charter guests aboard the Home superyacht celebrating her brother’s 30th birthday. The storylines were mainly focused on the complicated relationship between Chef Dave White and chief stew Natasha Webb, as well as Kyle Viljoen’s fling with a charter guest named Frank Fay. With so much attention on the crew drama and hookups, viewers only got a few glimpses of Jennifer during the charter.

Braunwyn and Jennifer announce their engagement

Shortly after her cameo aired, Jennifer confirmed she was in a relationship with the former OC ’Wife. The two announced their status in late August of 2022, about a month into dating. Braunwyn and Jennifer have since exchanged promise rings, had an unofficial Las Vegas wedding, and — most recently — got engaged. The RHOC alum popped the question in mid-July, exactly one year after their first date.


“I’ve never been happier,” Braunwyn told People magazine. “Jen is my person. She said to me once, ‘How much do you love me?’ And I looked at her and said, ‘It’s not how much I love you. It’s how small I love you. I love you on a molecular level.’ And that’s really it. My DNA was made for her. I’m a thrilled to be able to say now, ‘This is my fiancée’ — just like I know, I’m going to one day be able to say, ‘This is my wife.’”

Braunwyn and Jennifer have not announced an exact wedding date, but say it’ll likely take place this fall in Nashville. 

Below Deck Mediterranean crewmembers send birthday wishes to Jennifer

Nearly a week after their engagement announcement, Braunwyn took to Instagram to wish her fiancée a happy birthday.

“… [F]or better or worse, sickness and health , richer or poorer…damn we’ve been through it all this year and I couldn’t be happier to wake up next to you every day knowing ‘that’s my person,’” Braunwyn captioned the photo of her and Jennifer. “Happiest of days, let’s go have fun!!”

Jennifer also reflected on her 38th year in an Instagram post that referenced her new “love” and engagement.

“… 38 had so many firsts, I can’t wait to see what 39 has in store,” she wrote, “…except I can because 40’s next.”

Below Deck Mediterranean’s Kyle and Natasha commented on the birthday posts; the former hopped in Jennifer’s comments section with, “DROP DEAD STUNNING,” while the latter replied to Braunwyn with a warm birthday wish for Jennifer. 

“… Hope you guys celebrate in the most wild and wonderful ways…” she commented, “sending lots of love from me, Max [Landry] and the babies. We hope to see you soon.”
