Every mother’s nightmare…
Recently, Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson appeared on The Daily Dish podcast where she revealed her daughter Briana Culberson almost had to have her leg amputated a couple of years ago.
The 31-year-old nurse was diagnosed with lupus in late 2016.
The “O.G. from the O.C.” revealed:
“We almost lost her a couple years ago. That was one of the biggest fears I had in my life while I was filming; it’s my ‘Oh, my God’ moment. And she was super, super sick; got a very, very bad infectious disease from the hospital. They almost amputated her leg.”‘
The Bravolebrity added:
“She was extremely sick. Put her in City of Hope [National Medical Center] and she was there in isolation for a month. The viewers don’t know but we can share it now because she survived it. But it was horrible.”
Culberson, husband Ryan, and their sons Troy and Owen currently live in North Carolina, and are not featured on the current season of the hit franchise.
“Now she’s being treated for lupus out in University of North Carolina [Medical Center], which is actually where she works. She’s an ER trauma nurse… They’ve got a great lupus center out there. So if God brought her out there to help her get through this, that was the good thing from it.”
As we reported, in April of this year, Briana was hospitalized for lupus complications.
