Braunwyn Windham-Burke made her new relationship red carpet official
Parton: the introduction.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke made her red carpet debut with new girlfriend Jamie Parton Tuesday night, walking hand-in-hand at the release party for Dave Quinn’s book “Not All Diamonds and Rosé: The Inside Story of The Real Housewives from the People Who Lived It.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” alum told Us Weekly the two initially met through “The Real Housewives of Dallas” star D’Andra Simmons two years ago but recently reconnected via Instagram DMs.
“We started messaging,” said Windham-Burke — who recently became a bi-coastal resident, splitting time between California and New York City. “And when I was out here [in NYC], we hooked up.” Parton, 30, responded, “and the rest is history.”
“I really do love dating in the city,” she told Page Six at the release party on Tuesday. “O.C. is very small, so it’s nice to have the separation, so when I’m at home, I’m just with the family and when I’m here, I love the fact that I get to meet amazing people.”
The former Bravolebrity laughed and confessed that she, Parton, and her separated husband Sean Burke even have a double date lined up, and she’s excited to “set Sean up!”
The mom of seven came out as gay in December 2020 but remains married to Burke, 47. The couple shares Bella, 21, Rowan, 19, Jacob, 15, twins Curran and Caden, 8, Koa, 6, and Hazel, 3. She clarified that “it took us a year to kind of figure it out,” but they’re “finding our footing.”
“We’re still living together, and we have no plans on changing that,” she told. “We’re actually looking at a house with a guest house, so we’ll have a little separation but still, we want to raise our kids together. We don’t want to separate the family.”
