During an April episode of the PEOPLE Every Day podcast, she opened up to host Janine Rubenstein about having an open marriage with husband Sean Burke after coming out and entering a relationship with girlfriend Kris. The couple share seven children, ranging in age from 2 to 20.

"I had a relationship with a girlfriend that was platonic, but I fell in love with her," Windham-Burke said of Kris, from whom she had recently split. "And a lot of things were happening in my marriage at the time. Sean had someone else in our home, I had feelings for another woman, a lot of things were occurring off-camera at that time. And it basically kind of blew up."

"Sean and I had a very good, long, honest conversation, and I was like, 'I want to be with a woman. This is what I want,'" the Bravo star continued. "We had known that I was bisexual for a long time, but some things had happened ... I was sober, I was doing inventory, and I had, for the first time in my life, been with a woman, sober. ... And I was like, I'm not straight at all. I know this now."
