'Real Housewives Of Orange County' Star Vicki Gunvalson's Daughter Briana Has Evolved Since Season 1
It's crazy to think that The Real Housewives of Orange County, the original series in the Real Housewives franchise, has been on for so long. We have seen a lot of the women come and go, but the only Real Housewife who has stayed around for 10 whole seasons is Vicki Gunvalson, the OG of the OC. This means that we have also seen a lot of Vicki's daughter Briana Culberson throughout the years and the changes she's gone through. Briana went from being a young adult to a married mother of two right before our eyes.
On the show, Briana showed fans that not all reality television kids grow up being troubled or rebellious. She was very well-adjusted and goal-orientated even with the reality TV spotlight. Vicki's daughter has made a lot of changes from the beginning of the series until now, and it's crazy to think that we have witnessed it all. From her health scares to her surprise elopement and everything in between, we have seen Briana evolve a great deal over the years. Let's take a look at how far she's come since Real Housewives began all the way back in 2006.
She's A Nurse
When we first met Briana she was going to the high school prom and trying to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. Now, Briana is an ER nurse and loves her job.
She's A Wife
In Season 1, we saw that Brianna was proud of her virginity and her long-term relationship with her former boyfriend Colby. But later, Briana broke the news to her mother that she eloped to Ryan Culberson in a move that seemed pretty random to both her mother and the viewers at the time. The shock aside, they have seemed like a super happy couple ever since.
She's A Mother
Briana is the mother to two adorable sons named Owen and Troy with her husband Ryan. And even with all the Real Housewives drama, the one thing that seems consistently true is that motherhood agrees with her.
She's An Opponent Of Brooks
She was more soft spoken when we first "met" her during Season 1, but now she is a part of the show's most crucial story lines and she has no qualms with telling it like it is. Briana has made it no secret that she is not at all a fan of Vicki's on-again-off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
She Has Been At Odds With Her Mother
Vicki and her daughter have always had such a nice relationship, but we have seen Briana grow into her own person with her own opinions and sometimes they don't align with Vicki's. Briana has been extremely outspoken when it comes to her mother's relationship with Brooks and is adamant about her being treated well. All she wants is the best for her mom, but they just have such differing opinions.
She Is Happy & Healthy
Briana had a major scare when she had thyroid surgery and there was a possibility that she had cancer. Luckily, it turned out her thyroid was benign, but she went through a lot of stress and illness before she got to the point where she is today: happy and healthy.
Just like any other person, Briana has grown up a lot since high school. Unlike most people, we all witnessed her ups and downs. But she really has grown up to be happy, healthy, and successful.
