'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 15: Emily and Shane Simpson's marriage gets tested during quarantine
It was only Emily Simpson's second season on 'Real Housewives of Orange County' when the show exposed many of her vulnerabilities. Season 14 of 'RHOC' revealed Emily' troubled marriage to husband, Shane Simpson, her growing health issues due to her increasing weight and to top it off the drama with close friend Gina Kirschenheiter. Emily ended the season with a resolve to focus on her health and work on her marriage.
Looks like the housewife has made tremendous progress on all her resolutions. The housewife got her hip replacement surgery. With a new hip, she got a new outlook on life and things began getting better between Shane and her. According to Emily's Bravo bio, "With a new hip and outlook on life, Emily experiences a rebirth in her marriage." Fans will definitely be relieved to see Shane treating Emily better on the show. The previous season saw Shane ignoring Emily, and being very snappy toward her. During the season's reunion, the couple acknowledged that it was very hard for them to watch the show as they were going through a rough patch in their marriage.
Shane promised to do better and even he seems to be keeping his word. Just as things began looking up for the couple, Covid-19 pandemic was upon us, which forced everybody to go into quarantine. The quarantine reportedly tested Emily and Shane's marriage, but they came through, as they learned to trust each other. Aside from her marriage, we will also see Emily pursuing her passion project, designing swimsuits. We can't wait to see her designs.
Ahead of the show's premiere, Emily took to her Instagram to update her fans about her fitness journey and her relationship with Shane. In a lengthy Instagram post she wrote, "It’s been a JOURNEY to get to this point right here. Ups and downs. Gains and losses. Currently 16 pounds down. Body fat percentage 10% lower than last year. And no longer categorized as 'obese.' There’s no right way to start. There’s no magic plan or magic pill. You just have to dig deep and make yourself a priority. My first step was contacting @paulinastein and asking for help. Sometimes we become too overwhelmed with life, kids, depression, weight gain, hormones, relationships, illness etc ... but you have to start somewhere. Make today that day. A year from now will pass by regardless. Might as well make it your healthiest yet."
"I have more work to do to get to my ultimate goal. But I’m enjoying the journey and relishing in the successes. And I still enjoy an Egg McMuffin occasionally too (it’s all about balance!). Hair extensions are gone and soon these implants are about to be evicted. I feel lighter. Free. And Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to share the “Before” photo with you all ... until then make YOU a priority," added the housewife.
'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 15 premieres on Wednesday, October 14, at 10/9c only on Bravo.
