“But City Hope in Los Angeles — thank you — took her, put her in for three weeks, and IV antibiotics, and got all that out of her body,” Vicki revealed.

As fans of RHOC know, Briana was diagnosed with lupus. “She found a doctor up here at UCLA that is giving her somewhat of a chemo treatment every four to six weeks, and then the doctor just emailed her and said: ‘I’m moving to San Francisco,’” Vicki said.
