Vicki Gunvalson is eyeing her daughter Briana Culberson to be her next co-star on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The 30-year-old has been a fixture since the first season of the Bravo series but Vicki thinks she's ready to become a full-fledged Real Housewives star.
"It's probably time," Vicki told Entertainment Tonight
. "You know, the viewers are ready for her. She's such a great girl. She's no bulls**t."
"She'll eat those girls up!" she continued. "She's good TV. She doesn't [even] try to be good TV. She just is."
For now Briana will be part of The Real Housewives of Orange County from the sidelines.
"She's better," Vicki said of her daughter, who suffers from lupus, the incurable autoimmune disease that causes joint pain and fatigue. "I don't know if you're ever going to get better with lupus. She still struggles a lot. Finding the correct doctor, and rheumatologist, and treatment plan has been a challenge for her."
"I can't say that she's cured, or she's 100 percent," she added. "But I know she's doing a form of chemo which helps with the lymphoma-type symptoms. I just want to wake up one day and have someone tell me that they misdiagnosed her, it was a tick bite or something, 'cause I can't believe she was diagnosed with lupus."
"Brianna's incredible," she said. "She's just such a good girl. I'm so proud of her."
Brianna has been married to Ryan Culberson since 2011 and they have two sons named Owen and Troy.
