Ryan Culberson’s extreme aggression on the Real Housewives of Orange County season finale stunned viewers nationwide, leading many to assume that this was not the first time he’d lost his temper and attacked someone. We all remember Vicki’s brother Billy saying over and over, “You gotta stop! You gotta stop this shit!” It seemed clear that the family had seen Ryan spiral out of control before, and while I admire Vicki for respecting her adult daughter’s decisions, it’s quickly becoming clear that he could actually be a legitimate danger to Briana.
Briana needs to be careful. Ryan’s last girlfriend before Briana, Rachel Lawrence, accused him of domestic violence and even went as far as to file for a restraining order, which the judge granted her. He’s also been married once before. Details of the divorce are unclear, though it’s quite possible that his violent behavior led to the demise of that relationship as well. Sadly, this is not a relationship Briana can simply break away from. They have a child together. They’ll be in each others’ lives forever now. Ryan certainly doesn’t seem the type to let something go without a fight so I fear for her safety during the
inevitable potential divorce.
If the screen shots just aren’t cutting it for you, feel free to check out Ryan’s cases in the Orange County Family Court records online. This dude definitely knows his way around a courtroom. Special thanks to “Concerned” commenter on the post about Ryan and Judy’s reactions to the finale episode.
“After accepting the terms, you type in Ryan Culberson’s name and his divorce record by his last wife (09D010806) is available (has to be sent in the mail though) as well as the domestic violence/restraining order case (#10V001529 filed 7/8/10) from his ex-girlfriend before poor Briana. Both of these cases are in Orange County Family Court records. The domestic violence in his past was mentioned last night on the Military Times website article by Gina Harkins, and she deleted the comment with the case number immediately.” –Concerned
