InstagramThe Real Housewives alum admitted that her life was ‘simple’ now and that she sometimes missed her old luxuries, but admitted that she had ‘almost nothing’ when she left Sean[/caption]
Accompanying a photo of a decorative wall in her $1.7million mansion in Franklin, Tennessee, Braunwyn, 45, wrote: “Good Morning, this might be my most honest post yet, so bare with me, it might be long.
“Three months ago I walked into my old house, the moving truck was packed and I stared at everything I was leaving behind and just started crying, I was 45 and starting over with almost nothing except what could fit in a uhaul.”
The Bravo star added: “I spent that night on the floor wondering if I was making the biggest mistake of my life, but the morning I got up, got on the plane and started over.
“This wall symbolizes so much… slowly we are creating a home and life that’s ours, we don’t have much, but the kids are happy and safe, and we’re happy.”
The reality TV personality spoke about her lifestyle changes, writing: “Sometimes I miss the “big” life, the expensive trips, but not very often.
“I might not be able to do the trips to Kauai and Beaver Creek, but I can send the kids to camp (Jen is going to work there next year so all the kids can go,) and plan road trips to amazing places near us.
“There’s a sense of peace knowing we did this, that I’m able to give my kids maybe not everything they want, but everything they need, and it’s beautiful.”
Braunwyn concluded: If you’rethis, if you want to start over or leave a toxic relationship I want you to know you can…it’s hard, but worth it…
“My life is simple, but it’s mine and I’m really proud of us.”
Bronwyn initially filed for divorce from Sean in Orange County on October 17, 2022, after 23 years of marriage.
The couple initially split in July 2021, a year after the sobriety and recovery advocate came out as lesbian.
Two months after the starting divorce negotiations, Braunwyn filed docs requesting $10,000 in spousal support and admitted she only had $2,900 in her bank account at the time.
In addition, she’ll also be getting $5,000 per month in spousal support from Sean and will continue to receive health insurance under his coverage.
Braunwyn and her “wife” Jennifer Spinner made the move from Newport Beach to their new home near Nashville last month.
Braunwyn, who is still embroiled in a messy divorce with Sean, previously told The U.S. Sun that her ex also has plans to move to Tennessee so that they can continue to co-parent.
A source told The U.S. Sun: “The younger kids will live in Franklin full time, so they can go to school there and continue their education.
“Sean will have a room in Braunwyn’s Franklin home and he will get to visit and spend time with the kids as often as he likes.”
The source continued: “Braunwyn will go back and forth to California as much as she can to visit the older kids in college.”
The previous home they owned – a $6.8million mansion – was sold in September 2022.
