Like many people, as Vicki Gunvalson continues to self-isolate to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), she has had to make some significant adjustments in her plans to celebrate a few big events. The Real Housewives of Orange County mom postponed her wedding and then celebrated her 58th birthday with a small “party for two” at home. Now, she’s missing out on her daughter Briana Culberson’s 33rd birthday, but is looking forward to partying as soon as she can.
In an April 8 Instagram post, Vicki shared a photo with her daughter, writing, “Happy birthday Briana!! 33 years ago today, on April 8, 1987, my beautiful daughter was born. You have made me a proud mother all throughout your life. From being an incredible ER charge nurse, to an amazing loyal wife, to a selfless mother to Troy and Owen, you are the greatest gift from God.”
“I wish I was there to celebrate with you, but once this quarantine birthday is over, I’m on my way,” Vicki continued. “You are loved more than I can put in writing and I miss you SO much. Enjoy your day honey.”
Briana has certainly had a difficult time in self-quarantine. She works as a nurse in an emergency room, and began experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms back in March. Fortunately, she tested negative for the virus on March 26. Her husband, Ryan Culberson, previously opened up about Briana’s grueling work schedule, and noted how grateful he is.
“I’m really not jealous of her job, but super grateful there’s people that’ll do it!” Ryan wrote, adding “nurses rule” as a hashtag.
