Fernanda Rocha became the first lesbian to be cast as a member of the reality show The Real Housewives of Orange County. However, there was a time where she really had a struggle with her sexuality. In fact, she was once closeted and was married to a guy. She divorced her marriage as she began to come to grips with her sexuality. We don’t know the name of her first husband as of now.

She found her first love in Marian Keegan’s presence after the divorce. She married Marian shortly after and they were together for a few years. She had to part with her first wife at some point. The two of them still co-own Fernanda’s fitness club Art of Fitness, thus the split was amicable.

Lesli Matta, a photographer and stylist, was Fernanda’s second love. We have no idea when the two of them began dating. They did, however, become engaged in December 2013. People don’t know what happened to their relationship subsequently, but it appears that the two never got to walk down the aisle together after that.

Fernanda Rocha was previously married to Tessa Rocha, according to The Sun. In January of 2021, she reportedly filed for divorce from her now-ex-wife. Before their divorce, they were together for about 6 years. Tessa Rocha is a Los Angeles-based solutions consulting director.

Fernanda was the first openly homosexual cast member on RHOC when she first appeared. Braunwyn Windham-Burke, one of the show’s housewives, came out as gay almost a decade later.

Fernanda and Braunwyn were reportedly cozying up, hanging out a lot, traveling to Miami together, and so on, and it was a coincidental happenstance.

Tamra Judge, Fernanda’s former friend, hinted about a possible relationship between Fernanda and Braunwyn but declined to confirm whether they were dating. The two were not in an exclusive relationship, according to later revelations.

Braunwyn revealed their relationship to every major press in June 2021. She described Fernanda as “beyond fantastic” in an interview with Page Six. Fernanda was also credited with assisting her in coming out. (3)

She immediately rose to the top of her game through an expression of her unquestionable skill after surround herself with a set of mentors, the most exceptional trainers in her area. She ensured herself a successful career teaching and organizing programs in Brazil’s leading fitness clubs, but her success could not quiet a deep-seated desire for more.

Fernanda left the comforts of family, friends, and her native land at the young age of 23, armed with an amazing resume but yet unable to speak English. She arrived in America as an immigrant with nothing but her clothing in her luggage, a strong sense of purpose, and the determination to never return.

Fernanda’s narrative began as one of survival rather than success… she quickly understood that if her ambition was to be realized, she would need courage, self-love, and resilience. Early disappointments would have sent many a dreamer fleeing back home, but she overcame them. Fernanda, on the other hand, is tough as nails, and all indicators in her heart led in that direction.

Through her work at gyms and as a presenter for fitness conventions around California, she continued to foster strong industry ties, gaining increasingly more attention and building partnerships that would ultimately define her long-term success.

Fernanda took charge of her sexuality, something she had struggled with for a long time, for years. Fernanda, on the other hand, relied on her brave character and did not shy away from the truth now that her life was in the spotlight. She was coated with splendor in her coming-out tale as well. Fernanda was the first openly gay cast member on the reality TV show Real Housewives of Orange County, when her Brazilian Booty® fitness program was featured.

Fernanda found an outlet to become an advocate for LGBT rights by leveraging her increased image as a reality TV star, and she was invited to be the Grand Marshall of the Chicago Gay Pride parade. Fernanda aims to do good for the body and soul both on and off camera, utilizing the many venues available to her to promote the LGBT community.
