In a new sneak peek of an upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana Culberson, suddenly finds herself unable to breathe, and the first person to race to Gunvalson’s side is none other than Judge.
In the clip, Gunvalson is out with Culberson when she runs into Sarah Rodriguez at a gas station. Soon after, Culberson starts to have trouble breathing. As Culberson is loaded into an ambulance, Rodriguez takes Culberson’s two boys back to Gunvalson’s house to watch them until someone else can take over.
“Ironically, Sarah is at the gas station at the same time the ambulance pulls up,” Gunvalson tells the camera. “It’s like a godsend. It’s like, Thank you, Jesus. I don’t know what I’m doing right now, but I just need somebody to be here for me.”
As soon as she hears about the emergency, Judge races to Gunvalson’s house to take over watching the kids.
“[Vicki] called me, and I’m like, ‘What’s wrong?’ I was freaking out,'” Judge says. “And she was like, ‘It’s not good. It’s not good.’ And then I could hear Briana in the background… Those are the sounds you never erase from your mind, her gasping for breath. It was just not good.”
This isn’t the first big medical scare for Culberson. She underwent surgery last year to remove swollen lymph nodes. Gunvalson tweeted after the fact that the procedure was a success.
