RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson is speaking out about her daughter Briana Culberson’s health. During the season 11 reunion, Vicki shared Briana had been diagnosed with Lupus.
“Her struggle has been finding the right doctor. She’ll find a doctor, and then that doctor says, basically, ‘I can’t do anything more for you, so find somebody else.’ So she needs a rheumatologist, and she’s been finding one out of UCLA,” Vicki told The Daily Dish. “You know, it’s been hard on her. She really has been struggling with it. So I’m just hopeful that she can continue the path of at least getting in remission or cure or whatever has to happen. But she’s only 30, and she’s just struggling with it.”
Briana also spoke at the reunion about her diagnosis, saying, “It’s better. I had a major surgery on my neck a couple months ago to remove more tumors and they figured out that I have lupus. They said that I still can possibly be very early lymphoma that’s not detectable. So I have to be diligent but for now it’s just lupus.”
Vicki says she is proud of her daughter’s strength. “I’ve got a great daughter there. She’s just a great, great girl, very opinionated, very strong,” Vicki gushed. “And she’s definitely her mama’s daughter.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Briana and her family.
