Social media critics should take note of this: Vicki Gunvalson's daughter, Briana, reads your Instagram comments. And she'll shoot back at folks who don't have nice things to say. The Real Housewives of Orange County daughter responded to a fan on Instagram who felt that she had been acting like a "spoiled brat" during Season 10.
"How am I a spoiled brat? Spoiled? I've been financially independent since I became an ER RN at 21 years old," she wrote on a post her mother shared last week following the RHOC reunion taping. "Became a homeowner with my husband at 26 years old. I haven't taken a penny from anyone in YEARS. She bought me a car which I wrote a huge check for to reimburse her for some of it. I don't like seeing my mom in an abusive relationship. You don't see everything on the show. There is a LOT more to our family than is shown on tv for a few minutes an episode. My mom is my best friend and I don't appreciate your rude comment."
Following her response, several fans came to her defense. "Brianna [sic] is hardly a Brat... she appears to be the strong, smart & intelligent women her mom raised her to be," @dwatson07 wrote. "If some creeper was insinuating himself in my mothers life, I would raise hell too..I love watching both of them on the show dealing with real life issues." @angellite0 added, "A child has a right to point out the wrong stuff going on. Children first. Brat?? Hardly. Her gut feeling, totally right !"
Briana has been one of the people who has questioned Vicki's ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' cancer diagnosis throughout the season. See what happens when those inquiries come to a head in the RHOC finale, airing Monday, October 12 at 9/8c.
