Braunwyn Windham-Burke Responds After Gretchen Rossi Called Her ‘RHOC’ Storyline ‘Inauthentic’ And ‘Confusing’; Braunwyn Slams Gretchen’s ‘Uneducated’ Comments; Says “If She Finds It So ‘Confusing’ I’m Here To Educate – She Has My Number”

Braunwyn Windham-Burke is clapping back at Gretchen Rossi after the former Bravo reality star called her Real Housewives of Orange County’s storyline ‘very inauthentic’ and ‘confusing.’ 
“What an uneducated comment,” Burke wrote in a statement to Heavy. “It sets every woman who is questioning their sexuality back years – just as comments like these have stunted my coming out in the past. It’s not overnight ‘one day straight, one day lesbian’ – it’s years of inner turmoil that is unfortunately fueled by micro-aggressions/ ingrained misogynistic comments like she makes.”

Burke continued, “If she finds it so ‘confusing’ I’m here to educate- she has my number. However, I don’t think she’s as interested in learning about LGBTQ+ people as she is about talking about a tv show that she claims she’s never watched and hasn’t been on in a decade.”

Last month, Rossi slammed the last season of RHOC. “Unfortunately, I think there was just a couple of characters on the show that had so much going on in their lives that everyone was just like, ‘Wait, what?’ There’s no relatability,” Rossi said on Us Weekly’s  “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast.

While bringing up Braunwyn-Windham Burke, who revealed in December 2020 that she identifies as a lesbian, she added, “It felt very inauthentic because like one day she’s straight, one day she’s lesbian. You know what I mean? Like it was just kind of confusing. At least that’s what I’m gathering from what a lot of people have told me when I’m out talking to them or what you see in the comments.”

Rossi admits that she doesn’t miss the “toxic” drama from the show. “The actual day in and day out toxic environment and the stress of like, you know, ‘What somebody’s going to make up about you this week? … What lie are they going to tell about you? … What crap are they talking about you that you didn’t know that they were talking about you?’” she explained. “I am so grateful to no longer have that in my life.”

However, Rossi admitted that she isn’t completely opposed to rejoining the cast now that her longtime nemesis, Tamra Judge is off the show.
