Vicki Gunvalson will always be known as "the OG of the OC" and loves living in Coto de Caza, a gated California community. But the Real Housewives of Orange County mom also left her heart in North Carolina, where her daughter, Briana Culberson and her husband, Ryan Culberson, live with their two sons.
Briana and Ryan love their life in North Carolina — they didn't have to give up anything they really enjoyed, and the lower cost of living has taken a lot of stress off their plate. They're happy and healthy and have transformed their bodies thanks to the Keto lifestyle. But Briana will always be a California girl — she even has wooden artwork in the shape of California hanging up in the family living room as a reminder.
Vicki also likes to keep reminders of Briana: Vicki rented a beach house in South Topsail Island off the coast of North Carolina for one last summer woohoo before Briana's kids went back to school, and she brought home a North Carolina mug that provides a daily reminder of Briana and her family.
"This coffee mug reminds me of Briana, who lives so far away," she wrote wistfully on her Instagram Stories. "Missing you today and every day."
With the holidays coming and a wedding to plan, there are luckily a lot of occasions coming up to reunite the family.
