It looks like Vicki Gunvalson’s love tank will be depleted very soon as her daughter Briana is moving to the East Coast in two weeks!
Briana, her husband Ryan, and their two sons, Troy and Owen, are moving out East and leaving the OC lifestyle behind them.
Ryan announced on Instagram that their family home in Orange County had been sold and that they are moving to Raleigh, North Carolina since “it’s not working out” in Orange County.
It seems as if this move to North Carolina is somewhat of a homecoming for Ryan, who reveals that he grew up in NC and lived there all his life before joining the Marines.
“Today it became official! Moving back to NC in two to live a simpler stress-free life. We’re super excited for this next adventure and what the future will bring!” Ryan wrote.
This isn’t the first time Ryan and Briana have made a big move. Several years ago they moved to Oklahoma for Ryan’s job, but this move seems to be all about living a simpler and much more affordable life.
Briana also chimed in on the move and made it clear that the OC lifestyle just isn’t for her; admitting that they moved back to the OC to make Vicki happy but it just wasn’t working out for them.
“We wanted to try it out after Ryans retirement to see if we would be happy. Over this past year, I’ve been really unhappy living here. I’ve always connected more with my Midwest roots, and I’ve never really felt I’ve fit in in Orange County. It’s my mom’s style but not mine. The night I met Ryan 9 years ago I told him to take me away from here. I gave it a shot to make my mom happy, but I have to do what’s right for myself and my family. We’re super excited, and everything is working out how it’s supposed to!” Briana explained.
Adding, “I would never move if I didn’t want to. My husband and children are the most important. I’ve never been happy in Orange County and have always wanted to live elsewhere. Ryan and I made this decision together but I was the one who actually pushed it a little more. I need a simple life for my health. I got an amazing job, we found an amazing house. It’s all good!!! Orange County is a mess and way too expensive. It’s not how I want to live my life and that’s MY choice.”
No word on how Vicki feels about the move but I’m sure she will miss Briana, Ryan, and her grandbabies very much.
Congrats to Briana and Ryan! I hope they find much happiness in their new life!
