“Real Housewives of Orange County” Braunwyn Windham-Burke has revealed to fans that she is an “alcoholic”. 

Windham-Burke is in her second season on the show and is admittedly not on good terms with any of the women on her series. Fans are now speculating that her drinking may have had something to do with it. 

The mom of seven wrote an open and honest Instagram post revealing to fans that drinking has been a negative catalyst in her life. “258 days, one day at a time,” opened the housewives IG statement.

Her IG Post Was Powerful

“Thank you to everyone that helped me on my journey so far, @captainsandrayawn for giving me the courage to tell my story, to @evolutionusa for your unwavering support, and @tpkelly12 for telling this story as real and honestly as we could.” 

Windham-Burke went on to share with fans that she was newly sober when she began filming the latest season of the popular reality show and allowed Bravo to film everything she was experiencing. 

“When we started this season, I was 12 days sober, we document the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the unfiltered reality.”

Her Life Was A Mess

The 42-year-old also shared why she began her journey of sobriety admitting that her life had become a mess. 

“9 months ago my life was unmanageable, but today I’m happier then I’ve ever been, living life honestly on life’s terms.” 

Accompanying the post was a few pictures. One was Windham-Burke holding her sobriety pins for each milestone she has surpassed so far. The second photo was of the leggy blond sitting on a rock in what looks like a peaceful, tranquil place.

No OC Housewives Has Supported Her Publicly Yet

While none of her immediate co-stars left encouraging comments on her post many of the housewives from other franchises and other Bravo celebrities showered her with support. “

You are amazing, beautiful and strong,” wrote Stephanie Hollman of the “Real Housewives of Dallas”. 

She also got support from a few of the “Real Housewives of Potomac” women like Ashley Darby “Such an inspiration to us all,” she wrote, “We really appreciate your openness and positivity”. 

Newcomer Wendy Osefo echoed her co-star's sentiments. “So proud of you! Here if you need anything. Xo.”

On A Better Path

This confession is coming at the perfect time. Windham-Burke shared with fans recently that not only is she not talking to any of the women on the show, she doesn’t even consider any of them friends at this point.

Fans of the show also showed the housewife support. “There’s so much courage & power in sharing your story of sobriety. You will inspire others!” said one fan while another encouraged her to keep her head up amidst all the drama surrounding her and her sobriety.
