Eventually, Fernanda had to part ways with her first wife. However, the parting was somewhat amicable as the two of them still co-own Fernanda’s fitness club Art of Fitness.
Fernanda’s second wife was Lesli Matta, a photographer, and stylist. We do not know when the two of them started dating. But they got engaged in December 2013. We do not know what happened to their relationship afterward.

Fernanda Rocha Girlfriend, Braunwyn Windham-Burke
When Fernanda first appeared on RHOC, back in 2011, she was the first openly gay cast member. Almost a decade later, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, one of the housewives of the show, came out as gay.
And the coincidence of all coincidences was that there are reports that the two, Fernanda and Braunwyn, were cozying up, hanging out together a lot, traveling to Miami together, and so on.
Fernanda’s former pal, Tamra Judge also hinted at a possible relationship brewing between Fernanda and Braunwyn. But refused to confirm if they were dating. Later, it was revealed that Fernanda and Braunwyn were not in an “exclusive relationship”. Make what you will of that.
Braunwyn was previously married to Sean Burke, a businessman in California. Braunwyn and Sean were married for almost 20 years, and they had seven kids together before she came out as gay.
Even after coming out, Braunwyn decided to remain married to Sean, as they had built a life together. After coming out, she briefly dated a woman called Kris. And Sean was aware of Kris and her relationship with his wife.
And now, of course, Braunwyn seemed to be enjoying her life by not being in a “mutually exclusive relationship” with Fernanda Rocha.
In June 2021, Braunwyn confirmed their romance to every major publication. Speaking to Page Six, she labeled Fernanda “beyond amazing”. Braunwyn also credited Fernanda for helping her navigate her coming out.
