Braunwyn Windham-Burke sparks engagement rumors, looks for ‘forever home’ with GF
Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s Las Vegas wedding to girlfriend Jennifer Spinner may have been “fake” — as the couple describes it in an exclusive sit-down with Page Six — but the love inside that Sin City chapel Tuesday night was certainly real.
“Obviously, it’s not a legally binding marriage but for us, it meant something and we talked a lot about the intention behind it,” Spinner, 38, says while cozied up to Windham-Burke, 45, at the latter’s shared home with estranged husband Sean Burke in Orange County, Calif.
“It was … something that we put thought into.”
Windham-Burke says the idea came to them during a recent cross-country road trip, during which the pair searched for a “forever home” in the South.
The ladies ultimately found a new place in Franklin, Tenn., where they will continue “nesting” with Burke and the youngest four of the exes’ seven kids after relocating this spring.
She finally filed in October 2022 after nearly 22 years of marriage and two years after embracing her sexual identity. A legal dissolution is incumbent on agreements reached over custody and spousal support.
Though Windham-Burke is still married to Burke, she and Spinner lovingly call each other “my wife.”
“It started as a joke because we were in the casino. First of all, we got ‘Just Married’ shirts … and people recognized [Windham-Burke], so they were coming up to her nonstop and congratulating us because they had seen on Instagram that we had got ‘married,’” Spinner says.
“So as a joke, I started calling her ‘my wife.’ Then the next day we were sort of like, ‘Oh, we actually like it.’ So yeah, I guess you’re my wife.”
Windham-Burke agrees. “It fits,” she says, beaming.
The retired Bravolebrity — who departed “RHOC” in 2021 after two consecutive seasons — once asserted that she would never remarry after splitting from Burke. But Spinner changed her mind.
“Obviously, everyone I dated before you was a lot younger, it was fun, whatever, it was just different. I never saw it as something that I wanted,” she says, remembering the succession of women she dated prior to meeting Spinner.
“But my kids love her. They already call her their stepmom. I think a lot of people feel that way until you meet the one person that makes you not feel that way. And it’s like, ‘This is what I want. This is my wife.’”
Windham-Burke shares Bella, 22, Rowan, 20, Jacob, 17, twins Caden and Curren, 9, Koa, 7, and Hazel, 4, with Burke.
Spinner emphasizes that she adores the entire brood — and wants each child to know that she is not only committed to their mom but to them as well.
“Even though it was a fake wedding ceremony, it was sort of a symbolic gesture of, like, I am actually committed to this family and everything that this family represents,” she says.
“I’m making a commitment that I’m present and I’m here and I’m in it for real with everyone involved in this relationship.”
Windham-Burke assures Page Six that there is a “timeline” — previously unbeknownst to Spinner until discussed on camera — for a proposal and a real wedding. The lovebirds went public with their relationship in August 2022 after meeting via Instagram.
“There will be a time where I do the getting down on one knee … It’s not even a possibility. We are going to actually get married. We talk about it all the time,” Windham-Burke gushes.
“Elvis isn’t our last stop,” Spinner quips, to which her future spouse replies, “No, this is just the beginning.”
