We've all basically watched Briana Culberson grow up in front of of eyes. We were first introduced to Vicki Gunvalson's daughter over a decade ago and in all those years, we've watched her ups, downs and everything in between — that includes watching her become a mom and wife, as well as her ongoing struggles with her health. And, through it all, The Real Housewives of Orange County daughter remained incredible brave — as her mom reminded us on Instagram.
"So proud of my beautiful daughter Briana who followed her dream and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in less than 4 years. Despite her recent diagnosis of lupus, relocating several times and having 2 beautiful boys she has remained passionate in her career in the ER. I love her more than words can say and am so proud of her strength. #happynursesweek #mydaughter #mybestfriend."
The tribute comes just as Mother's Day is around the corner this Sunday and National Nurses Week wraps up on Saturday.
Briana and her family have definitely been making moves the last few months. The Culbersons moved to North Carolina late last year. And just last month, the OC daughter had a procedure used to correct heart rhythm problems in her ongoing battle with lupus.
As for Mama Vicki, well, it was confirmed earlier this week she'll be returning to RHOC for Season 13.
