Ryan shared the news on Instagram earlier this week. "Today it became official! Moving back to my home state of NC in two weeks to live a simpler stress free life," he captioned a photo showing that their house in California had been sold. "We’re super excited for this next adventure and what the future will bring!"
This news comes just a few months after Vicki revealed to The Daily Dish that Ryan would be joining his family in California after he remained in Oklahoma while awaiting his medical retirement from the Marine Corps. Ryan officially completed his time with the Marines at the end of August.
As RHOC fans may recall, Briana had moved from California to Oklahoma to live in the Sooner State with Ryan after he got stationed there following a tour of Afghanistan. Vicki announced that Briana had decided to move back to the OC in November 2015, which made the OG of the RHOC incredibly happy. "When Briana and Ryan decided to move back to Orange County, it was like answered prayers. I had been praying for that to happen," Vicki told The Daily Dish in June 2016. "It was their decision. Of course, I pushed them a little bit into that decision, what it would look like, I'd be part of their boys' lives all the time, I could help her out."
But these days, Vicki is just happy to see her daughter's family all back together again. "The fact that this is the first time they've been together through their five years of marriage where they know [Ryan's] not gonna be deployed and they know that they don't have to live apart, it's good for them. It's good for the family. The boys adore Ryan, and they adore [Vicki's boyfriend] Steve [Lodge], so we're a good family," Vicki gushed to The Daily Dish last month. "I just want them happy. Whatever they need to do, I just want them happy."
