The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealed she’s “an alcoholic” during the season 15 premiere on Wednesday, October 14, to costar Emily Simpson, who called her out for drinking too much last season.
“I am very nervous right now,” Windham-Burke, 42, tearfully admitted while sitting down with Simpson, 44. “Some things have happened. First of all, I need to say that I am sorry.”
The reality star continued, “You called me out on my drinking last year. Instead of taking it to heart, I really pushed you away. Basically, I think I just got angry with you, and I came up with reasons to be mad.”
Windham-Burke’s confession came after a trip to Miami where she accompanied Kelly Dodd to celebrate her now-husband Rick Leventhal‘s 60th birthday. She admitted to partying hard during the trip and said it was “bad.”
“I didn’t stop drinking for four days,” she revealed. “Every hour I would keep doing a shot. I was drinking so much I thought I was going to die.”
