Victoria Brito and Braunwyn Windham-Burke have called it quits. An alum of Real Housewives of Orange County and her girlfriend of nearly nine months have ended their relationship.

The US weekly revealed that

“Braunwyn and Victoria broke up earlier this week. Vic has a tough travel schedule for work, and Braunwyn had been travelling back and forth to California a lot. The long-distance became too tough, which is the main reason for the split.”

According to the source, the 44-year-old former Bravo star is still travelling back and forth to New York City as she was not solely travelling to the East Coast “because of Vic.”

In December 2021, Windham-Burke kissed Brito for the first time since coming out in late 2020. About their split, the source said,

“They’re both extremely passionate people who take love and heartache very seriously.”

“They will remain on decent terms.”

In season 15 of RHOC, viewers watched Windham-Burke navigate her sexuality and marriage to Sean Burke. The couple, who are still legally married but refer to each other as “ex,” share seven children: Bella, Rowan, Jacob, Twins Curren and Caden, Koa, and Hazel.

Before their breakup, Windham-Burke opened up to Us about how her children handled her relationship.

She said in June,

“It depends on the kid. They haven’t all taken it the same. My oldest daughter, Bella, she’s still struggling with it. Not with the fact that I’m dating a woman, because we are a very open family. You know, we’ve always been big supporters of the LGBTQ community, even before they could walk. We were going to marches in D.C. when they were in strollers. So that wasn’t the issue. She grew up with a certain family, and, you know, that’s close to her heart.”

Windham-Burke added that Rowan loves Brito as the pair got along great, adding,

“Jacob is a 16-year-old boy. He’s like, ‘Whatever, I don’t care.’ And the little kids, you know, as far as they know, it’s just more people that love them. And that’s sort of how Sean and I have presented this to them. Our family isn’t splitting up. Our family is growing.”

According to Windham-Burke, she and her ex-husband have overcome “some hurdles, some bumps in the road.”

She said,

“There have been some really tough times, but right now, we’re doing really well.”

“We’re parents; we’re partners in life. But, you know, we’re working toward the same goals, and we’re getting along well. At the end of the day, we’re best friends.”
