Life Changes: The event comes just days after Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd were both kicked out of The Real Housewives of Orange County
Rocha, who has been dating the reality star for the past few months, snuggled up next to her sweetheart in an orange red and white patterned mini dress that cinched at the waist.
She too went with a pair of open toe heels and her dark brown locks flowed well past her shoulders with a little extra volume and a slightly straight part.
The fitness instructor also wore a pouch as the couple toured the photographers.

GUARDaHEART works with strategic partners, healthcare providers and other non-profit organizations to promote awareness through education and risk detection tools, to strengthen preventive actions and reduce risk of heart disease around the world.
The organization’s work could be even more vital, given that healthcare professionals believe COVID-19 may have long-term impacts on organs, including the heart, lungs and brain, and may lead to development of diabetes in recovered patients in the future.
Saturday’s event comes just days after new information emerged that Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd had both been banned from The Real Housewives of Orange County.
The blame game: Dodd blames Windham-Burke for their recent dismissal from The Real Housewives of Orange County
Dodd, who has faced a backlash over the past year for his controversial views on COVID-19 and charges of racism and homophobia, blames Windham-Burke for their dismissal.
A text message sent by Dodd to Windham-Burke read: “It was your fault. We’d still be on the show if you didn’t make it so dark and ugly and bring all that “awakened” political BS.
He continues, “Your lies about me calling me racist and homophobic were horribly destructive and your bogus stories didn’t help either.”
After 20 years of marriage, Windham-Burke and her husband, Sean Burke, admit to having an open relationship. They share seven children, aged 2 to 20.
The Mission Statement: The event is focused on “raising awareness of the diabetes health crisis”, while the GUARDaHEART Foundation as a whole is “dedicated to the fight against heart disease with the mission: LEARN”. DETECT. AVOID’
