Rounding up her ensemble, the recently fired star of The Real Housewives of Orange County donned multi-colored, open toe heels, carried a matching clutch, and had her blonde tresses styled long with some soft waves.

She too went with a pair of open toe heels and had her dark brown locks flowing well past her shoulders with some added volume and a part on the slight right.

GUARDaHEART works with strategic partners, healthcare providers, and other non-profit organizations to promote awareness through education and risk detection tools, to ultimately empower preventative action and reduce the risk of heart disease worldwide. 

The organization’s work could be even more vital, considering medical professionals think COVID-19 may have long-term impacts on organs including the heart, lungs, and brain, and may lead to the development of diabetes in recovered patients in the future.

Saturday’s event comes just days after new got out that Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd were both axed from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Dodd, who has faced intense backlash over the last year for her controversial opinions on COVID-19 and accusations of racism and homophobia, blames Windham-Burke for their firing. 

A text message sent from Dodd to Windham-Burke says: ‘This was your fault. We’d still be on the show if you didn’t make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political “woke” BS.’

It goes on, ‘Your lies about me, calling me a racist and a homophobe were horribly destructive and your phony storylines 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 together, ranging in ages from two to 20.                

The mission statement: The event is geared towards 'raising awareness of the diabetic health crisis', while the GUARDaHEART Foundation as a whole is 'dedicated to fighting heart disease with the mission: LEARN. DETECT. PREVENT'
