While chatting with the publication via video chat last week, Elizabeth, who was added to the Bravo reality series last year for season 15, confirmed that she has not yet met her cast mate’s leading lady.

Elizabeth Vargas Doesn’t Believe Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s Sexuality Should Be Exploited
Although Elizabeth believes Braunwyn should be with a woman if that’s what she’s into, she doesn’t believe she’s going about things in the best way.
“I don’t really think you need to exploit it as much as she does. To come out and make it a big deal and to have photographers on you as if you were kissing, and they were random pictures, to me, it was like… I’ve messed around with women forever. I don’t sit there and exploit, ‘Oh, I’m a non-practicing bi,’” she explained.
Elizabeth Vargas Doesn’t Appreciate All The Fuss
“I don’t appreciate what she’s doing for the LGBTQ community because it just seems like it is too much,” Elizabeth continued. “It is what it is. Quit making it a big deal because when someone makes it a big deal, it’s out there. But if it’s not a big deal and it’s accepted, we can move on from it.”
According to Elizabeth, Braunwyn would be doing more for the community if she simply came out and went about her life as normal.
Elizabeth Vargas Wishes Braunwyn Windham-Burke Had More Class
While Braunwyn has been open with her sexual choices, including her threesomes with her husband, in the past, Elizabeth would appreciate her more if she did so with class.
“If you’re going to hurt your family and you’re going to abandon them for doing all the stuff you’re doing, do it privately. Have some class is all I’d wish she’d have because it hurts a lot of other people that are actually wanting to come out,” she shared. “I don’t think it was the right way.”
