Real Housewives of Orange County fans haven’t seen much of star Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana Culberson, during recent seasons since she got married and started a family. So when Briana and her husband Ryan showed up on Instagram recently to share some family photos, the couple shocked RHOC fans because of their incredible weight loss.
Before Briana quit RHOC, fans watched as she struggled with various health issues, including the auto-immune disease Lupus which can cause problems with weight. Since then, Briana has made a serious effort to get healthy, and she and Ryan ended up losing a total of 107 pounds, and they say it’s all because of the Keto diet.
Briana and Ryan left Orange County in late 2017 and moved their sons Troy, 6, and Owen, 4, to North Carolina because – as Briana put it – “Orange County is a mess and way too expensive. It’s not how I want to live my life.” Not only has the couple moved across the country and gotten healthy, but they have also continued their relationship with Briana’s dad and Vicki’s ex-husband, Donn Gunvalson.
According to the Daily Dish, Ryan and Vicki have had words in the past because he has posted pics of the family with Donn more than Vicki. Gunvalson and Donn split in 2010 and finalized their divorce in 2014, and Vicki has had some issues with her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren spending so much time with Donn. But, she’s going to have to get over it.
During the 4th of July holiday, Ryan posted pictures from the family celebration, and Donn was right there with them after making a trip to North Carolina for a visit. Ryan posted a pic of “Grampy D” with Troy and Owen at their soccer game. He also shared a video of Donn celebrating a board game victory by putting his arms and feet in the air.
Meanwhile, Vicki is in Orange County and still dealing with fan reaction after the news broke that Bravo had demoted to her friend status after starring on RHOC for 13 seasons. The OG of the OC says that she will still be in the middle of the drama, and she hopes fans enjoy watching Season 14 as much as she enjoyed living her life in front of the cameras.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County premieres Tuesday, August 6th on Bravo.
