Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her ex-girlfriend, Kris, were spotted walking hand in hand less than three weeks after The Real Housewives of Orange County alum split from Victoria Brito. Braunwyn, who revealed she was gay in December 2020, ended her relationship with Victoria after less than a year together. The reality television star’s romance with Victoria was her longest since coming out, and she admitted to being heartbroken after the split. Braunwyn and Victoria’s relationship appeared to grow stronger before they called it quits. However, a source close to Braunwyn said that the relationship with the model wasn’t working.
Braunwyn and Victoria’s breakup was linked to long-distance problems. An insider explained, “Long-distance relationships are hard, and that was no exception with Braunwyn and Victoria.” Although the exes spent much time in New York, they also spent much time apart as they both had to travel for work. According to reports, Victoria had been traveling a lot recently, and the distance created communication strains in their relationship. In a recent interview, Braunwyn revealed she was still dealing with the breakup’s aftermath. She also admitted it had been difficult to put herself back out there following her heartbreak.
However, it looks as though Braunwyn is ready to find love again and is doing so with the help of her ex, Kris. Braunwyn and Victoria were spotted holding hands while taking a stroll on the streets of Downtown Los Angeles on July 27. Braunwyn wore a short black dress beneath a sports coat with fancy buttons, which she paired with red heels and a black clutch purse. Kris, for her part, wore black shoes and slacks, a white tank top, a cream-colored button-down, and sunglasses. In an exclusive video obtained by Page Six, the TV personality said that she is interested in getting married again, but that would be after she divorces her longtime husband, Sean Burke, whom she remains with despite coming out as a lesbian.
RHOC’s Braunwyn’s comments about getting married again would make one feel she sees a future with Kris. However, that is not precisely the case. When asked if her future marriage would be with Kris, Braunwyn, who is still legally married to Sean, said, “Kris and I have always been friends. Kris and I love each other forever.” Kris added that she and Braunwyn have a great connection. Meanwhile, a source confirmed the former lovebirds’ words, saying, “Kris and Braunwyn are friends and nothing more! She was Braunwyn’s first lesbian relationship, and they will always have a place in each other’s hearts.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Braunwyn appears to have put the pain of her recent breakup behind her and seems interested in having fun. However, while she and Kris might have caused fans to suggest they were rekindling their old romance, they immediately made it clear they were just friends. The insider’s revelations also confirmed that nothing romantic was going on between the former lovers. Romance or not, the hangout would surely have lifted Braunwyn’s spirit. She now looks ready to find love again after admitting that getting back in the dating game has been hard. One can only wait to see what happens in the reality TV star’s dating life moving forward.
