"Real Housewives" Star Reveals Stunning News Of What Nearly Killed Her Daughter

Vicki Gunvalson is no stranger to manufactured drama as one of the stars of the "Real Housewives of Orange County," but she recently had some drama to deal with that was far more important than anything she has to deal with on set. As the NY Daily News shares, Gunvalson has revealed that her daughter is lucky to be alive, as she claims that there was a major screw-up during a surgery that her child had last year.

Gunvalson made the revelation during an interview with ‘Access Hollywood.’ She says that her daughter, Briana Culberson, was operated on with a dirty scalpel at a hospital in Oklahoma last year, and that led to some frightening problems.

“It almost killed my daughter. [The scalpel was infected] with feces from a previous surgery that day they put inside her body,” she said. “So, not good, she almost lost her leg. I mean, she almost died and all this stuff."

She says that Culberson returned to California after the surgery, and doctors at Los Angeles' City of Hope were able to rectify the situation.

"[They] got all of it out of her body," she continued.

As for the rest of the drama surrounding her life, she says she’s still coming to terms with an unfathomable turn of events that popped up with her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers. During season 10 of the show, it was revealed that Ayers had been faking that he had cancer.

"I don't know why he did what he did, but he wasn't a monster. He wasn't really the man I thought he was if he did what he did to me," she said. "Why did you reveal bad records? Why did you do what you did to me? We had a good thing going or so I thought, but why? I still don't know why. I have never been able to get the answer from him."

The cancer faking scandal took many twists and turns, as Ayers initially claimed that Gunvalson had been the one who manufactured the whole thing for attention. He finally came clean about it, but the stench still lingers.

Of course, that’s not all of the drama that the RHOC star is dealing with. She recently wrote in her blog for BravoTV that she remains hopeful that her relationship with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador will take a turn for the better.

“I am hopeful that we can all be friends again, because life is easier that way. Having all this conflict is not healthy for any of us,” she wrote.

That’s a ton of drama for one person to have to deal with, but it sounds like she’s focused on her daughter. Culberson is a mom to two young boys, and she suffers from lupus in addition to the surgery-induced medical issues she has had to deal with.

“Family is good. We have a normal family now,” Gunvalson remarked. “Finding the proper medical care when you’re diagnosed with something life that has been a challenge for Briana.”
