Elizabeth Vargas is talking “dirt” about Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Braynwyn Windham-Burke‘s marriage.
Elizabeth might be new to the show, but she’s certainly not afraid to express her opinion or spill the tea. Days after slamming Braunwyn as “hypocritical” and “narcissistic,” she’s now claiming to have some inside knowledge as to why her castmate and husband Sean Burke have decided to stay married.
“Oh, they got dirt on each other, which I know about,” Elizabeth told Us Weekly in a new interview.
As fans well know, Braunwyn came out as a lesbian in November and has since gone public with her new girlfriend, Kris. However, she has no plans to divorce her husband of over 20 years, even though she has admitted that she’s never been attracted to Sean despite the fact that they share seven children.
“I got married very young and I never thought about it.… I’m just now starting to feel like I’m becoming the woman I was supposed to be,” Braunwyn told GLAAD before adding, “I plan on staying married. We’re raising the kids together. He’s my best friend.”
Elizabeth says she doesn’t “agree” with the couple’s “modern” marriage and explains why Braunwyn should “let” Sean move on.
“You know, my ex-husband and I had a weird relationship too, I can’t judge it. … I think that Sean should move on and she should let him, you know, he’s going to have to pay her bills anyway,” Elizabeth alleged.
The Edge Music CEO says that Sean happens to be a “wonderful human being” and she feels horrible for the father-of-seven and the way Braunwyn has spoken about him publicly.
“He loves her so much and it’s so heartbreaking to see her say she was never attracted to him,” Elizabeth explained.
Speaking of “heartbreak,” although Braunwyn’s new relationship with Kris appears to be heating up, she recently revealed that she’ll be “heartbroken” when Sean finally decides to move on with another woman. As previously mentioned, Elizabeth — who has openly admitted to longing for a child of her own — believes her co-star’s behavior is extremely “hypocritical” and slams Braunwyn as a mother and accuses her of “abandonment.”
“She should definitely divorce. They should divorce and then just live separate lives,” Elizabeth shared. “You know, that house was rented, so they should just get out of the lease.… They should live separate lives and the kids are already in turmoil. They went through [Braunwyn’s] alcoholism and now they’re going through abandonment. I just don’t agree with how she’s doing anything.”
