On February 16, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and husband Sean Burke got all dressed up for a special cause. The Real Housewives of Orange County couple attended the Tantrums & Tiaras drag competition fundraiser, which raises money for the San Diego LGBT Community Center. While Braunwyn and her husband looked amazing in matching ensembles, it was her husband's choice of footwear that caused quite a stir.
For the event, Sean accessorized his black suit with a pair of red high heels. But after receiving plenty of feedback in regard to her husband's wardrobe choice, Braunwyn decided to clear the air.
"Good morning. So, I woke up to a lot of DMs, a lot of questions from a lot of you. And I just wanted to say, basically why was my husband wearing heels," she began in an Instagram Stories video. "I think I put in my post, we were supporting our son, who recently started showing an interest in drag and we were on our way to a fundraiser for the LGBT youth center in San Diego. And it was Sean's way of supporting his son and all the other kids that the youth center helps."
Braunwyn continued: "More importantly, it was a way to take something that so many are uncomfortable with and try to normalize it. And waking up this morning and seeing all the hate that my husband's getting for a pair of shoes sort of goes to show why this is so important. So, as long as a pair of shoes can be so polarizing and divisive, it means we still have a lot of work to do because people aren't understanding, people are judging. And that's exactly what we're trying to raise awareness of... And I guess it's working because at least people are talking."
For the record, we think Sean rocked those heels flawlessly.
