Vicki Gunvalson’s Daughter Briana Denies Using Ozempic to Lose Weight

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson has lost more than 45 pounds in the past four years. She and her husband Ryan have been on a Keto journey and have been documenting their new, healthier lifestyle on social media. But now accusations are swirling that they used Ozempic to boost their weight loss, which Briana quicky denied.

“There’s been some ridiculous chatter wandering around the interwebs today following a pic of us I shared earlier,” Briana posted on Instagram. “Some people have started a rumor that we’re on Ozempic.”

“First of all, hilarious. Second of all, I would NEVER,” she continued. “That goes against everything we stand for and everything we’re doing for our health and wellness.”

A major lifestyle change

“I spent too many years of my life being terribly sick,” the mom of four added. “Too many years of not having any respect for my health … [We ate and drank] whatever we wanted in the moment. I was on a long list of medications, admitted to the hospital OFTEN, sick, fat, and miserable.”

Over the past four years, Briana and Ryan have made “many, many lifestyle changes” to improve their health and wellness. “Clean eating, clean lifestyle, daily movement, daily choices, emotional healing, and targeted high-quality supplements and essential oils have completely changed our lives inside and out,” the registered nurse said.

The former RHOC regular shared that the new health regimen wasn’t just a weight-loss program. This was never about being able to fit into a smaller dress size. Although, all the healthy eating had the effect of doing just that. Briana, who received a lupus diagnosis in 2016, is slimmer and feels better. Best of all, her lupus symptoms are under control.

“What’s more important to me are the changes on the inside,” she said. “I’m off all medications (with the exception of my thyroid replacement for my thyroidectomy). My health hasn’t been this good in over 20 years.”

“It’s a lot of little daily choices and consistency that add up,“ she continued proudly. “I’m a better mom, better wife, better friend, better person now that my health and wellness are a priority. No gimmicks, no nasty medication, just staying consistent and being intentional with my daily choices … You can take that Ozempic chatter somewhere else because it ain’t here.”

Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to return sometime in 2024.
