The second and final reunion episode for season 15 opened with Braunwyn, 43, on the hot seat as Shannon, 56, recalled how two summers ago she made an inappropriate comment to her 16-year-old daughter Stella who was age 14 at the time.

Shannon said Braunwyn told the teenager, ‘Stella, there’s a lot of bad drugs out there. If you want the good stuff, text me.’

Braunwyn during the season 15 premiere admitted that she was an alcoholic and recently revealed that she was a lesbian.

‘I’m sorry. I don’t remember saying it,’ Braunwyn said at the reunion.

Shannon attempted to ask a follow-up question, but Braunwyn was overcome with emotions and started sobbing.

‘I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. I am so sorry that I did that. I would never do that sober,’ Braunwyn said.

Braunwyn called her own behavior ‘f***ing disgusting’ and cried while taking responsibility.

‘I wasn’t pretty, and I did a lot of thing that I was ashamed of,’ Braunwyn said while wiping her eyes.

‘I understand,’ Shannon told her.

‘You understand? If someone said that to my daughter, I would go nuts!,’ interjected Kelly Dodd, 45, who added fuel throughout the reunion to a simmering feud with Braunwyn.

Braunwyn continued to apologize calling it her ‘worst’ mistake and Shannon said she appreciated it.

The season 15 reunion was filmed at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles and was hosted by Andy Cohen, 52.

Kelly was questioned by Andy for wearing a hat the read ‘Drunk Wives Matter’ and was asked if she understood why people were upset.

‘That hat was two years old. It was my girlfriend Megan, that was given to me. I didn’t buy the hat. I didn’t support the hat. I was trying everything on at my bridal shower,’ said Kelly, who married Fox News Channel reporter Rick Leventhal, 61, on October 10, 2020.

Kelly insisted that she wasn’t intentionally trying to ‘mock’ the Black Lives Matter movement and claimed it was just a ‘play on words’.

She was asked if she could see how it was offensive to people, and Kelly answered, ‘Of course. I see it now. Of course.’.

Braunwyn noted that Kelly’s acknowledgement was the point of all of it, ‘to know better, to do better.’

‘I wasn’t being malicious. And I get attacked by this cancel culture that’s a bunch of haters that never would ever have any voice. And here they are, getting together and coming after me,’ Kelly said.

Kelly also added that four of her ‘best friends are African-American’ and accused Braunwyn of never doing anything for Black people.

‘I’m black! Look at my 21…How am I racist?,’ Kelly screamed, who was attempting to reference her 23&Me personal DNA test results.

‘Well, I mean, you wore a hat that said ‘Drunk Wives Matter’,’ Braunwyn fired back.

‘I’m black! You have no idea what the hell you’re talking about. I’ve been doing things for Black people way before. I don’t have to go out and announce it,’ Kelly said.

She then brought up her DNA test again.

‘I’m Native American, I’m Black, and I have Asian in me,’ Kelly declared.

‘But you don’t identify as African-American,’ Andy told her.

Kelly admitted that she doesn’t identify as African-American and also doesn’t identify as Native American even though ‘I almost have 35 percent’.

‘But you have not walked through life as an African-American,’ Andy told her.

‘No, but I have as a Mexican. And people have complete, …racist against Mexicans,’ Kelly said.

Braunwyn’s husband Sean Burke also made a guest appearance and arrived wearing a face mask amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to greet his wife.

She admitted that she has ‘never been attracted to men physically’ and that included Sean who she’s been married to for more than 20 years.

‘Of course we have an emotional connection. We’re best friends and we enjoy each other that way, we really do. But that was a part of our relationship that was really hard and really challenging,’ Braunwyn said.

Sean was asked for his reaction when Braunwyn told him about her feelings for women.

‘In some ways it was a relief,’ Sean said. ‘It really was. Because the elephant in the room is, this isn’t something we can’t fix. She’s attracted to women.’

Sean also admitted that he had mixed feelings about Braunwyn’s girlfriend, Kris.

‘It’s hard, you know, after being with somebody for 25 years, of course it’s hard to say, ”Oh my gosh how did this happen? How did I not see this?” But on the other hand, she’s so much happier and we don’t fight,’ Sean said.

The reunion ended with the group having mock cocktails together after Andy noted that most of them were starting 2021 with a ‘dry January’.
