Real Housewives of Orange County Star Embraces Teen Son in Drag

Braunwyn Windham-Burke

Braunwyn Windham-Burke is loving her son's new look — which includes a platinum blond wig and heels.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star applauded her 14-year-old son Jacob's transformation into his drag persona, Divine Devon, in the Wednesday episode of the Bravo reality show. Even her husband slipped into heels and a wig in support of Jacob's gender creativity. 

Windham-Burke posted a preview of the transformation in an Instagram post prior to the event, as well as a loving message. “So proud of this beautiful child," she stated, adding, “We are so proud to be your parents and honor your strength…stay tuned for something special next month where you get to see the final look!!!”

Additional images posted to social media promise that "Divine" will only become more refined with time.

In the below clip from the episode, Jacob explained that he always enjoyed having his sisters put him in dresses when he was younger. "I kind of dressed up like a girl and acted like one for my whole life. My sister used to dress me up and put me in dresses and all that," he said.

"What if I do this, but on a bigger and grander scale? Because it's just a lot of fun." He added after the makeover that dressing in drag is the "most empowering I've ever felt in my life."

"I got your back, kid," Windham-Burke said in the episode.
