The cast members of RHOC have been open about their health. Shannon Beador talked about being unhappy while gaining weight, then went on to lose it.

Simpson went to CUT Fitness in a recent episode and talked to Tamara and Eddie Judge. “I’ll be honest with you, I have not weighed myself in probably eight or nine months because I just, I don’t want to know,” she said. “I’ve been avoiding knowing any of this information. I’ve just been living in denial. I don’t know if I want to know.”

She wasn’t happy when she heard what she currently weighs. “That’s the most I’ve ever weighed, that’s off the charts. It’s really sad for me that I weigh this number,” she told the couple.

The episode got a lot of responses from fans. It also led to the reality stars getting into an argument.

Simpson and Tamara Judge argued over that episode

One fan wasn’t agreeing with Eddie and Tamara Judge’s feedback. One fan tweeted that Simpson isn’t obsese. Simpson tweeted back, “Thank you.”

Judge then had something to say about this. “You are unbelievable,” Judge tweeted. “We try to help you and I’ve seen multiple tweet[s] of yours that are not nice. Eddie spent over an hour with you talking health [and] nutrition. No one made you get on the scale. You love playing [the] victim and it’s getting old.”

Simpson wrote back, “I simply said ‘thank you’ to someone who said I wasn’t ‘obese.’ That’s all. If you want to read more into that, that’s on you.”

She tweeted that she is nervous but excited

The reality star opened up about her plans for the future. That includes getting a hip replacement and why she has to get it.

“I’m having hip replacement surgery October 28th. I’m nervous, but beyond excited about finally being able to move pain free. The ‘new’ Emily can’t wait to run, jump, workout, walk a catwalk and dance!! #rhoc,” she tweeted.

A fan replied saying her doctor told her that the pain will be gone once she wakes up. “Yes mine told me the same! I can only imagine how amazing that feels to wake up pain free!” Simpson tweeted back. She added that she also has pain in her hands and knees in another tweet.

Another person noted that she is pretty young for this type of surgery. She tweeted, “Arthritis. There’s no cartilage in my left hip.”

Fans will have to wait until after Simpson’s surgery to see how she’ll recover. It looks like she’s still focused on her fitness.
