It’s officially the end of an era. The OG of the OC has left the building, for real this time. Vicki Gunvalson was unceremoniously demoted going into Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County. Initially, she promised to stay on the show as long as Bravo would have her.
Then, life without an orange really got to Vicki and, as a result, she promised that she would only return to the show if she was a full-time cast member. And she actually came through on that promise. There are lots of RHOC viewers mourning the reality TV gold that Vicki brings to the table. Then there are others who have been waiting for Vicki’s exit ever since the cancer scam. However, there’s one thing that Real Housewives of Orange County fans can agree on: we love and miss Vicki’s daughter Briana Culberson. She always makes sense, she’s levelheaded, and in essence, she’s basically the antithesis of her mother, providing plenty of wisdom throughout her years of appearances.
Briana’s husband Ryan Culberson shared a photo on Instagram yesterday. It was a standard, adorable couple, but, of course, someone had to ask about Vicki’s exit, or “Vickxit,” as I started calling it.
According to an article from People, a fan commented on the post with “Wishing Briana would make a statement regarding the show!! But so glad we got one final scene with her and Tamra [Judge] discussing Vick.”

Briana, who has stayed off social media for many years, shockingly came in with a comment from an account with her name on it. Who knew she was on Instagram? Anyway, she was as poised as she always is with her comment.
Briana responded, “I’m not really a ‘statement’ type of girl, but I will say that it’s very sad and the end of a wonderful journey for my mom. We’ve had a lot of fun as a family on the show and I’m very proud of her and love her. Her absence will be significant and she will be very missed on the show.”
And we will all miss Briana.
