Braunwyn Windham-Burke showed off her bikini body as RadarOnline.com exclusively learned that Bravo bigwigs are planning she will be the big star on next season's The Real Housewives of Orange County.
As Radar's new photos show, Braunwyn was seen in Miami, Florida with her husband Sean Burke just days before the Super Bowl in the sunny city.
The reality TV star had a blast in her two-piece floral bathing suit, looking tanned and toned.
In the wake of the show's famous blondes Vicki Gunvalson, 57, and Tamra Judge, 52, quitting over their demotions to friend status and slashed salaries, RHOC needs a new firebrand.
And the execs think wild Braunwyn, 42, fits the bill!
“Braunwyn is going to be the star of the show now," a source told Radar. "They’ve recruited her friends in the casting pool to build a clique around her."
According to the insider, "She’s willing to do and share things that the other women of the upper echelon in the OC aren’t willing to share. The producers said her new house is definitely RHOC material.”
Radar exclusively reported that Braunwyn was among the housewives who got contract offers to come back in season 15.
Braunwyn has had a lot of drama in her life, as she recently talked about her open marriage with Sean on the show and to TooFab.
“Occasionally, we’ll have a fun threesome,” Braunwyn said in the shocking interview.
The reality TV star will only allow "hot" girls to join her and Sean in the bedroom, but her husband said it’s more about chemistry than looks, noting, “I don’t know, I think when it’s right, it’s right.”
However, Braunwyn said other men aren't allowed in their threesomes, shuddering, "Eww! No!"
Also, they can't have a three-way with a close friend: "that's a hard and fast rule."
Braunwyn, the mother of seven kids, also will tell RHOC fans about her cosmetic procedures.
The star recently posted photos of herself with a bandaged face. Braunwyn was accused of getting a facelift, but she explained she underwent non-surgical treatments.
Braunwyn shut the rumor down by tweeting, "I didn’t get a facelift. I got Face Tite, minimally invasive and you’re awake. If you’re going to talk s*** get it right at least."
Before that, Braunwyn had explained her procedures in detail, writing on Instagram with a photo of herself posing with her doctor, "I had BodyTite, Votiva and my hernia repaired, today I'm doing the FaceTite and Morpheus 8, they're all minimally invasive with almost no down time and will help keep me looking refreshed. I didn't want to change how I look, I actually like my face, but did want to restore some of the fullness I've lost over the years (having babies takes its toll!). Dr Zelken has been my doctor for years so I trust him completely. Can't wait to show you the after results in a few weeks!"
She's clearly ready for the RHOC close-up her bosses plan. On Tuesday, outrageous Braunwyn showed off both her body and new face while enjoying a sunny day at the beach.

Hot Miami Mama
Braunwyn spends lot of time at the gym and has never looked better.
During her bikini day, Braunwyn sported a tattoo on her back that had a crown of flowers over an old-fashioned royal crown with the word Goddess written on it.
Stealing The Spotlight
As Radar readers know, both Vicki and Tamra left RHOC due to humiliation over the offers they received for "friend" status with accompanying salary cuts.
Braunwyn is just 42, younger than 50something former RHOC regulars Vicki and Tamra. “The network wants to skew younger,” a source told Radar about Bravo's plans.
Braunwyn regularly works out at the Balboa Bay Club, lifting weights and working the treadmill.
Bravo bigwigs like that Braunwyn is uninhibited. The star recently showed her bandaged face on social media and admitted some swelling and soreness after procedures to look younger.
Cast Moves On
Radar broke the news that Braunwyn will be returning to RHOC for season 15, along with other co-stars besides Vicki and Tamra.
The star should have plenty of family material to offer RHOC. Braunwyn is mom to baby Hazel, toddler Koa, twins Caden and Curran, and teenagers Jacob, Rowan and Bella. The blonde employs two nannies to help her out.
Braunwyn fought with Vicki at the RHOC reunion and Gunvalson called her "trashy." But according to a Radar source, Braunwyn has gotten the last laugh as Vicki is gone and the show's stardom will now be hers.
Coming Out On Top
Braunwyn kissed Tamra during an RHOC episode surrounding Shannon Beador's birthday party. Tamra claimed Braunwyn was the aggressor in the girl encounter. Radar's source said over-the-top Braunwyn will now be the winner when it comes to RHOC's camera time!
