When Yontef asked if Burke was specifically approached for The Real Housewives of Orange County or The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she said it wouldn’t make sense for her to do RHOC based on where she lives.

I like spending time with my husband. i need my alone time I love what I do in my business. I don’t know if I could hang out with some girls and get drunk and fight. Although I love Lisa Rinna. Although some of my girlfriends are on the show. So I say that with insane respect, you know.”
