Vicki Gunvalson Explains Why Her Daughter Briana Culberson Won’t Appear On RHOC!

Vicki Gunvalson's daughter Briana Culberson has appeared on every season of The Real Housewives of Orange County since its premiere back in 2006. However, this year, Briana along with her husband Ryan and their two kids, Troy and Owen will not appear on the show this season.

“It broke my heart,” Vicki told Entertainment Tonight of filming the opening credits without her daughter for the first time ever. “But, I'm happy for Briana.”

If you recall, after Season 12 wrapped, Briana and her family moved to North Carolina.

“She was really in a place in her life with Ryan, Ryan just retired disability Marine, they decided to move to North Carolina, where he's from, and build a life there,” Vicki explains. “This is my new normal now, flying cross-country. Could you have moved any farther away?! This is not, like, a weekend trip! So, I'm doing the red eyes out, getting there in the morning and just spending as much time with them, and then heading back. So, it's my new normal.”

“She works still full-time as a nurse, and her husband looks after the boys,” Vicki told Entertainment Tonight. “She's got a four and six year old, Troy's almost six already! We saw him being born on camera, and they're the love of my life.”

“She wanted to just have a break and be kind of incognito, keep the kids off camera,” Vicki adds. “The unfortunate part about putting your kids on camera and yourself is, the trolls come out, and the negative people come out, and the people that have their 'opinion,' and she's like, 'I don't want to hear it anymore. I'm a good mother, a good wife. We have a good family. I don't want to hear any negativity,' and that happens. You know, people were trolling bad about Ryan or bad about her. It gets exhausting.”
