Gina Kirschenheiter Explains Why Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s Husband Sean Burke’s Text Made Her ‘Uncomfortable’; Says “I Have More Boundaries With Things Like That And Just Sex And Everything In General”

Gina Kirschenheiter explains why Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s husband Sean Burke’s text made her ‘uncomfortable.’

If you recall, Kirschenheiter detailed a conversation she had with Sean, who had reached out to her after a season 14 party. According to the screenshot shared on the October 21 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Sean wrote, “Hi Gina, just checking in all is OK. Braunwyn is asleep, but I got her to the condo first. Anyway, have a good night, and it was great to spend time with you. Oh this is Sean probably should have started with that.”

Gina reveals why she wasn’t that thrilled by Sean’s text. “That text message came a year and a half ago, right. I felt uncomfortable by it. I thought it was a little weird,” she told Us Weekly. “I’m coming from a divorce [with] an affair. I have more boundaries with things like that and just sex and everything in general. … And so for me it was more about honesty.”

“He takes my number out of her phone and you know, it’s like, even if he was checking in on me, just text me from her phone, you know?” she said. “The whole thing I think is … getting a little convoluted. She knew about those text messages. … There were other women who brought it up a couple of times last season. And I tried to just laugh it off and squash it.”

Braunwyn, for her part, revealed that she was disappointed in Gina’s assumptions about her relationship with her husband as the pair isn’t living together currently, they are exploring a “modern” relationship – even as Braunwyn has started to see someone “special.”

“I think because people on the show know that I’m attracted to women, it sort of gives them the sense that they can, I don’t know, weaponize it and make me into a predator,” Braunwyn told Us Weekly about Gina’s reaction. “There’s something about that that doesn’t sit right with me, that when it comes to same-sex relationships, it’s somehow like dirty or inappropriate. And I think more than the text message, it’s her weaponizing my sexuality that really got to me.”

Gina, however, doesn’t see her discomfort with the situation as a snub toward her Windham-Burke’s sexuality.

“She told us from the very beginning that she preferred to sleep with women,” she explained. “I think that the bottom line is that’s great that she is out and she’s feeling more comfortable in her own skin. But … the way that she presents her value system about women is anything but promoting [women’s] empowerment in my eyes. So that’s where I think I have an issue.”
