“Snips and snails, and puppy dog tails!” It is time to break out the blue for Real Housewives of Orange County’s first daughter Briana Wolfsmith Culberson. In an interview with the Marine Corp Times, Staff Sgt. Ryan Culberson, new husband and father-to-be, reveals that he and Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter are expecting a boy.
Reality Tea first broke the news of the exciting upcoming arrival!
As you recall, Vicki was less than thrilled (#understatement) when Briana and her Marine beau opted to elope at a drive-thru in Vegas as opposed to having a traditional ceremony. While they were married in October of last year, they had a beautiful ceremony again on May 12 to celebrate their marriage…and the baby they are expecting. Guests learned that the couple would be awaiting a baby boy when the pair cut into their cake to reveal blue icing. Cute!

Ryan is quick to say that the newlywed’s elopement meant absolutely no disrespect to Vicki. He explains, “I think the deployment and her health are the main reasons we did this. Knowing she was cancer-free and me coming back from deployments where we lost guys and people were getting hurt left and right — it just made sense.” It makes sense to me…sometimes people don’t need the hustle, bustle and stress of all the pomp and circumstance that comes with a big wedding.
The groom also gushes about his new bride, saying, “What drew me to [Briana] is that she’s so normal. She’s completely the girl next door.” I think all RHOC viewers would agree with that wholeheartedly.
Even Vicki has softened, and she’s thrilled to have Ryan as her son-in-law. She tells the publication, “Not being from a Marine family, it is very exciting having Ryan as a new addition to ours. It is fun talking to him about his experiences both on the base and when he is deployed, and I’m so proud of his passion for our country.”
While the wedding was no trip to Costa Rica (thankfully!), Vicki also addresses her rift with Tamra Barney on her Bravo blog. After discussing how uncomfortable she felt about the Alexis Bellino “intervention,” she goes on to wonder why women must constantly put each other down and search for drama within their friendships. Case in point? Her now frenemy (it seems) status with Tamra. She writes:
Tamra was very distant to me the whole trip, and I could sense that she was really making an effort to be with Gretchen [Rossi] more than me. I felt like I was in competition with Gretchen and then I stepped back and thought…am I in grade school? Why can’t we ALL be friends? I felt Tamra pulling away from me not only on this trip, but long before it. It’s been coming for awhile now and I still don’t have an answer from her as to “why.” I love Tamra, and just wish it was normal between us, or like the old times. Somehow we have gotten off course and I don’t get it.
I honestly don’t know what to think of these women anymore. It’s exhausting to say the least, and I’m sure most of y’all would agree with me. That said, I send my best wishes to Briana and Ryan, both on their marriage and the wonderful news about their expanding family! It’s always nice to end things on a positive note!
