I get it. You guys hate Vicki. I’m not sure why I don’t. You have valid reasons for feeling the way you do. She doesn’t own her mistakes and rarely admits she lied. She’s a flawed person. Her tagline this season is something like “Before you judge me, you better be perfect.” I’m certainly not and I can identify with her flaws. I judge lots of other housewives harshly for probably a lot less. We all like who we like and dislike who we chose based our own life experiences.
That said, I was disturbed at all the accusations about Vicki in this weeks RHOOC comments. It’s obvious to me that Briana is very sick and the doctors don’t know what is going on. Vicki’s daughter who she loves very much was seriously ill, half way across the country with two young boys and a husband who was unable to provide much help. I don’t understand all the scrutiny surrounding her bringing her kid home.
Maybe Vicki can explain it to you in her Bravo Blog:
Wow, I’m in shock watching tonight’s episode on how Shannon weighs in on my daughter moving back to Orange County. She hadn’t spoken to me in many months when this aired, so how dare her comment anything about Briana and Ryan’s decision to move back to CA. What does she know? Nothing!! What is she talking about “strings attached”? We are a family and we do whatever we can to help one another out. Let’s see how she handles things if one of her daughters moves away, and is extremely sick. Let’s see if her and David assist her and her husband moving to be closer to her and to get better quality healthcare. Every time I hear Shannon weigh in on something that has nothing to do with her, it makes me cringe.
Shannon is going to trash Vicki all season. I’m okay with that. She needs a storyline, and if it is not this it is emasculating her husband or maybe more of the things Shannon sticks up her butt storyline.
To give you more information about my daughter moving back to CA, Briana and Ryan discussed her moving back before he was released, to get closer to me so I could help her out with the kids and also to be closer to her doctors. They wanted to do this prior to his retirement release date so she could get their new home ready and to enroll the boys in pre-school. Ryan has been able to come back every few weeks, and she has gone out there several weeks at a time which has actually worked well for them. He is on the home stretch of getting released which is good news. It’s all working out as they planned.
Interesting that Ryan is still in Oklahoma and that Brianna flies out to Oklahoma to see him. Isn’t she too sick for that?
Their house just sold in Oklahoma, and their home here in the OC is almost ready for them to move in so now all we need is the release date for him.
Wow she really did move home early. I think when you are that sick, you just really want your mama.
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes for Briana. She’s had really good medical treatment here in California which is a big improvement from where she was. Briana has decided to keep her health issues as private as possible, however we were filming at the height of her health problems and unfortunately the cameras caught some of it. I am respecting her wishes to not disclose everything, so I ask that you respect that as well. One thing you can do is to lift her up in prayer, because that’s the one thing that can be done when you feel helpless as we do.
Wow, it sounds like the might have a diagnosis. And it’s not good.
For those of you that commented last week on social media that Briana drove the whole way back from Oklahoma to California, I want to clarify that and say that couldn’t be farther from the truth. She wanted to start the drive off as she gets extremely car sick, and she wanted me available to help with the kids while she was driving. We have a very close relationship and if there was ever any time where I felt she was not well enough to drive, I would have taken over. We switched off every few hours and our mission was to get her home as fast as we could. The doctors did not approve of her flying, so we did the best we could do under the circumstances. Again, thank you for your concerns and comments, however my daughter is my priority and I would never do anything to put her health in jeopardy.
I know that Vicki is not the perfect daughter, and Briana is far from the perfect daughter, but you have to believe that last part, right?
