Claire Winton Burn Talks About Her Personal Life
Claire Winton Burn who came third on Masterchef Australia made headlines for her love life as well as her cooking.
Now the show is over Claire talks about how this effected her and her family to TV Week.
The article said:
On cloud nine after her recent engagement to partner Trevor, last girl standing Claire Winton Burn says she hopes to start a family with her man in the future.
“I’m in a really happy, committed relationship and with that comes all of the things that everyone wants, including children, but at the moment I’m just focusing on what’s next for me career-wise after Masterchef,” Claire, 31, tells TV WEEK. “We are talking about getting a puppy though, which is exciting.”
After having her personl life dragged through the press and being branded a homewrecker, Claire says she feels terribly guilty for exposing her loved ones to the scrutiny of the spotlight.
Being eliminated right before the big finale has also been hard to digest for the former lawyer, who risked her career and put her family through the media wringer by attracting attention on the hit show.
“The thing that does upset me is the way it has affected Trevor, his family and my family, as well,” Claire reveals. “It’s disappointing because while I may have signed on for this, it’s the people who haven’t who have really suffered and I feel responsible for what they’ve been through. It’s especially hard because I’m not there to support the in person.”
Claire found her relationship with Trevor dissected after it was reported he left his wife and newborn baby to set up home with the former lawyer, who he met at work.
“There have been a lot of factual inaccuracies and it’s certainly been a difficult time for Trevor,” she acknowledges. “but he’s been incredibly strong and amazingly supportive. He’s been behind me 100 per cent. It hasn’t put any strain on our relationship at all.”
As for the bashing she’s received on many online forums, Claire is doing her best not to dwell on the negativity. “It’s obviously hurtful and affects you,” she admits. “but everyone is entitled their opinion. I’m not going to win everyone over. I have lots of support, but I have lots of detractors, too. That’s just the risk I’ve taken by putting myself in the spotlight, but I’m focusing on the next chapter.”
