Braunwyn Windham-Burke's Son, Jacob, Is Showing off His Drag Skills on 'RHOC'
Braunwyn Windham-Burke's son Jacob is set to become the breakout star of Season 15, as he's showcasing his drag persona on the series. Details.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke is no longer the newbie on the show, and it doesn't look like she'll be hitting a sophomore slump for Season 15. In her Season 14 debut, she introduced the world to her brood of seven kids, her unconventional marriage to husband Sean Burke (and his epic statement necklaces), and her eccentric mom, Dr. Deb. With such a unique life, it's no surprise that Braunwyn soon became a breakout star.
Though she "took" O.G. RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson's orange, Braunwyn managed to win fans over by being an open book on the show. For Season 15, she'll be, once again, baring it all when it comes to her marriage. She's also set to chronicle her son, Jacob's experience with drag.
Who is Braunwyn Windham-Burke's son, Jacob? He'll be a big part of his mom's storyline. Plus, details on her other kids and their family life.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke's son, Jacob, will have a key role on Season 15 of 'RHOC.'
Though Braunwyn introduced all seven of her kids to the viewers in Season 14, the focus was mainly on daughter Rowan, her journey during her eating disorder, and her clothing line, Dark Rabbit.
In Season 15, Jacob Windham-Burke will be front and center, as he's developing his drag persona. During the trailer for RHOC, Jacob shared that his drag name is Divine DeVonne.
Back in January of 2020, Braunwyn shared on The Daily Dish podcast that the 15-year-old became more interested in drag the month prior.
"Jacob asked for heels for Christmas, and I said, 'OK,' and that sort of started it," Braunwyn said. "I have found out there's an entire community of teenagers that are in the drag community that I didn’t know about, and I've reached out to a lot of their moms."
She later shared that he was learning techniques and makeup tricks by watching videos online. During the COVID-19 quarantine, Jacob had been putting on shows and performances for his family members.
The reality star opened up about what a positive outlet drag had become for her son on the podcast.
"He was kind of in a funk for a while, he was kind of depressed and just sad," she explained. "This has taken him out of that. He's just activated and alive."
Who are Braunwyn Windham-Burke's other kids?
During her first episode on RHOC, Braunwyn shocked her co-stars when she revealed that she was a mom to seven children. After marrying her college sweetheart, Sean Burke, in 2000, the couple welcomed daughter Bella together in August of 2000.
Their second daughter, Rowan, came along in June of 2002, and she was followed by Jacob in 2005. Twin boys Caden and Curan arrived in 2013, and Koa was born in 2014.
Sean and Braunwyn's last child is their daughter, Hazel, who was born in February of 2018. The pair easily have the biggest family on the Bravo reality series.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
