Braunwyn Windham-Burke and husband Sean Burke have been married for more than 20 years, but it hasn’t always smooth sailing for the Real Housewives of Orange County couple.While Bravo fans met Braunwyn in 2019 when she joined the cast of RHOC for season 14, she started seeing Sean when she was just 18 years old.- Advertisement – Before season 15 of RHOC started airing in October 2020, Braunwyn sparked split speculation as she promoted a Zoom session with a divorce specialist.Scroll through for more on Braunwyn and Sean’s ups and downs: – Advertisement – “I learned [doing the show] that I can’t always rely on my husband,” she explained in a 2019 interview. “I’ve been with my husband since I was 18, so I had to stand on my own two feet for the first time in my entire adult life. And that was not always easy.”Braunwyn and Sean tied the knot in 2000 and went on to welcome seven kids: Bella, Rowan, Jacob, twins Caden and Curren, Koa and Hazel. Before the pair welcomed their twins and youngest daughters, however, they actually separated for a short period of time.“We fought for our family because Sean and I almost got divorced,” Braunwyn recalled on the RHOC aftershow in November 2019. “We’ve been through infidelity. We’ve gone down this road and Sean and I came back stronger.”- Advertisement – While they welcomed four more kids post-split, Braunwyn ruled out welcoming baby No. 8 in 2020, revealing that she underwent two years of IVF to have the couple’s youngest daughter.“We worked very hard for this little one, 2 years of IVF and many losses to get her, but when I look at her huge smile, her eyes that light up and her adorable laugh I can tell you, it’s all worth it,” Braunwyn gushed via Instagram. “She’s the easiest baby we’ve ever had, is best friends with her sister and loves to just follow the others around. I’m so grateful for you, thank you for being a part of our family.”- Advertisement –

By Sudipto Ganguly MUMBAI, India (Reuters) – Cricketers could be ‘red-carded’ by umpires and ejected from the ground for the duration of a match from next October after the sport’s lawmakers yesterday recommended on-field sanctions to address declining standards of player-behaviour.The world cricket committee of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the guardian of the game’s laws, has recommended that a player should be removed from the field for threatening an umpire, physical assault or any other act of violence.Match officials currently report players or incidents to the match referee at the end of the day after which action is taken.Following a two-day meeting in Mumbai, MCC world cricket committee chairman Mike Brearley said umpires needed to be empowered to impose on-the-spot sanctions, noting that there were more disciplinary problems in the lower-tier leagues.“There was a survey done of the umpires and 40 percent said they are considering giving up the game or giving up umpiring because of verbal abuse,” former England captain Brearley told reporters at the Wankhede Stadium.“Anecdotal evidence from people who are familiar with leagues in parts of England say that the behaviour has got worse.“The umpires have to be respected and given the best possible chance and I think cricket is the only game in which there isn’t this possibility of an in-match punishment or deterrent.”ROLE MODELSThe committee discussed sanctions like run penalties and sin bins but felt it would be hard to apply them consistently around the world.“It got to the state where something had to happen to prevent those things happening on the international stage,” former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, a member of the committee, said.“The modern players now understand their role in society, about being role models, and want to play the game the right way for younger kids.”The committee also decided that no changes were required to the current ball-tampering laws despite recent incidents.The age-old practice of shining the cricket ball has become a grey area for some cricketers who called for clarity after South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was declared guilty of ball-tampering by the International Cricket Council last month.Television footage appeared to show du Plessis applying saliva to the ball while sucking on a sweet during the Hobart Test against Australia leading to him being sanctioned and losing his entire match fee.The committee also agreed that the game had tilted too far in favour of the batsmen and therefore recommended specific bat size limitations to the edges and depth of a bat.The new laws will be implemented at all levels of the game from October 1 next year, subject to approval by the MCC’s main committee.
