Briana Culberson, 30, daughter of Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson, practically grew up on the Bravo reality series.
Vicki’s daughter has appeared on RHOC since season one and her mom thinks it’s time Briana became a full-fledged Housewife!
“It’s probably time,” Vicki tells ET. “You know, the viewers are ready for her. She’s such a great girl. She’s no bulls**t.”
Vicki feels Briana’s personality would be a perfect fit with the cast.
“She’ll eat those girls up!” Vicki jokes. “She’s good TV. She doesn’t [even] try to be good TV. She just is.”
As readers know, Briana Culberson is lucky to be alive following a major medical mistake during surgery last year. In season 12, viewers will learn more about Briana’s medical ordeal.
“She’s better,” Vicki says. “I don’t know if you’re ever going to get better with lupus. She still struggles a lot. Finding the correct doctor, and rheumatologist, and treatment plan has been a challenge for her.”
“I can’t say that she’s cured, or she’s 100 percent,” she continues. “But I know she’s doing a form of chemo which helps with the lymphoma-type symptoms. I just want to wake up one day and have someone tell me that they misdiagnosed her, it was a tick bite or something, ‘cause I can’t believe she was diagnosed with lupus.”
“Brianna’s incredible,” Vicki says. “She’s just such a good girl. I’m so proud of her.”
