Emily Simpson has had a rough season on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The reality show star has exposed her marriage troubles with husband Shane in front of the viewing public. It has been the Bravo cameras that have captured dark moments of her relationship that have people wondering if she would quit the show.
Will Emily Simpson quit ‘RHOC’ for her husband?
Simpson has opened up about the turbulence of her marriage on season 14 of RHOC. The couple has not been shy from showing their struggles in front of the cameras. Simpson’s main issue with her husband is that he’s been focused on taking the bar exam that he’s not as attentive with her.
As we’ve seen on the show, when Simpson tries to talk about an issue, her husband uses sarcasm to diffuse the situation which is not always helpful. Shane tends to be dismissive of Simpson and viewers don’t like to see her be humiliated.
The couple has gotten attention from fans and they seem to be fine with the fact that he’s portrayed negatively on the Bravo series.
“Everybody likes a good villain. He was trending on Twitter. So give the people what they want!” Simpson told Us Weekly in an interview.
Simpson has her loyalties in order and if given the choice of choosing her husband or RHOC, she did not skip a beat when answering the question.
“I would choose my husband,” she answered. “I feel like he goes along with it because he doesn’t want to tell me what to do. He goes along with it like a child that doesn’t want to get dressed and go to school.”
“It’s hard,” Simpson continued. “It puts me in an awkward position because on one hand, I have people asking, ‘what is your real life?’ and on the other hand I have my husband saying, ‘I don’t want to talk about that.'”
In the same interview, Simpson revealed that her relationship with her husband is much better now.
Is Tamra Judge trying to get Emily Simpson booted?
Simpson said she would leave RHOC if she was forced to choose between the show and her husband. There are also rumors that co-star Tamra Judge is trying to get her booted off the Bravo reality series.
When a fan asked the second-year housewife why her co-stars are mean to her, Simpson had a theory.
“This is why, a systematic and calculated plan to ice someone out so they are let go from the show,” she replied on Twitter.
Simpson cited an Instagram comment made by Judge where she explains how a housewife could end up being fired from the show.
“When you’re not friends with any of the cast they have no other choice but to let you go. No cast member has the power to fire someone,” Judge wrote.
Simpson feels she might be getting iced out from the rest of the RHOC cast and Judge has not been shy of shading her in the press.
“I’m so tired of seeing marriages fall apart on national TV, to be honest with you. So you know, I just feel like it’s happened so many times on Housewives shows, like I don’t wanna see that anymore,” she told Life&Style in a direct dig at Simpson.
Simpson and Shane will continue to showcase their marital issues on RHOC throughout season 14. The drama in Orange County continues every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
