‘RHOC’: Briana Culberson Shares Why She’s Keeping Her Life Private

After practically growing up in the reality television space, Briana Culberson from The Real Housewives of Orange County is trying to find a little privacy for her family.

As the daughter of OG Vicki Gunvalson, Briana was often featured on the show, beginning when she was only a teen. Cameras followed Briana through high school and college. Plus the show documented her battle with Vicki’s (then) boyfriend Brooks Ayers.

She also broke the news she had eloped, which didn’t go over well with her mother. But RHOC also featured her joys and tribulations including the birth of her children, but also her serious health battles.

She doesn’t have a public account on social media

Many of the former cast members and their children have public Instagram accounts. Briana has been a big part of the series so fans are always interested in her life. Fans are especially fascinated with the significant transformation she’s made as she’s lost a copious amount of weight.

Along with her husband Ryan, the two have collectively lost 112 pounds all due to the Keto diet. Ryan has been a huge proponent of the weight loss program, often advising Instagram fans about how to successfully implement the diet.

But in a recent thread, one fan wondered about why his account is made public, but his wife’s account is private. Ryan replied that she has an account but only for friends. Also because “[She] Had to make it private because of her job.”

Why she’s keeping it private

The fan didn’t want to pry but was wondering how Briana’s job impacted her social media accessibility. Briana saw the thread and offered some insight.

“I don’t feel like making my daily life public,” Briana commented. “It’s complicated by me being an ER nurse and my mom being on tv, but just comes down to me simply wanting to be able to share pictures of my kids and my day and feel safe and comfortable.”

Ryan shares a number of photos of their children, his wife, plus several of his mother-in-law too. Many people are extremely supportive on his feed and often comment about how amazing his wife looks too.

Living her best life

Ryan can’t say enough positive things about the impact Keto has had on both his and Briana’s life. He recently shared a photo of Briana in her scrubs with their son. “When you make scrubs look this good you know you’re doing something right!” he wrote. Tamra Judge, who has known Briana for years couldn’t help but comment. “Omg she’s so skinny. Looking hot,” she remarked.

He’s also said that Keto is not their diet but instead a lifestyle. “It’s become a lifestyle for us that is sustainable,” he commented when a fan asked if the couple was still doing Keto. Ryan also reports that his wife’s symptoms from Lupus have significantly improved too. And while the couple is all in with Keto he added they still enjoy themselves. “Cheat meals are necessary!” he said when a fan asked if they ever divert from the program.
