Vicki Gunvalson's daughter Briana Culberson is back in California with sons Troy and Owen this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. And up until recently, Briana's husband, Ryan Culberson, had to remain in Oklahoma while awaiting his medical retirement from the Marine Corps.
But now Vicki won't have to serve as Briana's self-proclaimed "OC husband" any longer, because Ryan is now on his way to live with his family in California permanently. "Ryan, good news, just got moved to California yesterday for good. So he's out of Oklahoma. The moving truck is going to be coming in the next few days with all of their belongings," Vicki told The Daily Dish in an interview Monday. "And that's been a journey for Briana and Ryan since he's been in the Marine Corps, and they went to Oklahoma and she came back to California without him. She's really been missing her husband."
Briana originally moved to Oklahoma with Ryan after he got stationed there following a tour of Afghanistan with the Marine Corps. Vicki announced that Briana had decided to move back to the OC in November 2015. "The truth of the matter is, she's a California girl, and she hated Oklahoma," Vicki told The Daily Dish in June 2016. "They had to make a choice of where they wanted to move because he's actually getting retired from the Marine Corps. So they didn't want to stay in Oklahoma anymore. So coming back to Orange County was the natural thing for her to do."
And now Vicki couldn't be happier to have the whole family back together again. "It feels so great to have Briana back home," she recently gushed to The Daily Dish. "So for me to have Briana back in the OC, they're seven minutes away from me, and the babies are really close, too. I'm able to help them before school, after school, and while she's working and doing what she has to do, so it's been really good for me to have her so close."
