Braunwyn Windham-Burke is finally weighing in on the response she received following recent comments about the future of her relationship with husband Sean Burke.

During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, Jan. 13, host Andy Cohen questioned the cast member of The Real Housewives of Orange County about a recent post on her Instagram Story. On Jan. 2, a fan had asked how she would feel if Sean "ends up falling in love with someone else," and the star shared that she would be "heartbroken." This followed Braunwyn coming out as a lesbian last month and revealing she has been dating a woman named Kris.

When Andy wanted to know whether fans were right to find the sentiment "quite hypocritical," Braunwyn explained that fans misinterpreted her remark about the man who is the father to her seven children.

"The question was, what if he fell in love and started a new life with someone, not if he dated," she said. "If he dates someone, I'm fine with it. If he falls in love and starts a new life and gets remarried, yeah, I would definitely be heartbroken."

She continued, "We've been together for almost 26 years, since we were teenagers. And yeah, he's my family. Not to say I don't want him happy and I don't support him. I do."

Shortly after Bruanwyn initially posted the "heartbroken" comment, Sean took to Twitter to thank fans for their "support" and offer his own take on the matter.

"Of course I can date, and of course it'll hurt," he shared. "There is so much, so fast, we are just figuring this out for ourselves."
