The reality star’s update on her marriage came two weeks after she denied speculations that she and her husband were divorcing. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight in mid-October, she clarified, “I love him dearly, we haven’t gotten along this well in a long time. We’re redefining what marriage means to us. Not following the old, antiquated rules anymore.”

Marriage aside, Braunwyn recently celebrated a major milestone in her life. In October, the Bravo star celebrated her 258 days of sobriety. “9 months ago my life was unmanageable, but today I’m happier then I’ve ever been, living life honestly on life’s terms. #sober #onedayatatime #bestchoiceever,” she wrote on one Instagram post.
