Summer for Emily Simpson and her family was far from easy — on the latest episode of 'Real Housewives of Orange County', we see her break the news that she contracted Covid-19. Emily's husband Shane and her children, Annabelle, Luke and Keller ended up catching it too. While Emily's symptoms were mild — she complained of a headache and tiredness, Shane's condition was far worse — he was suffering from high fevers, vomiting blood and difficulty breathing.

In the episode, we see Emily take Shane to the hospital, as she has an emotional moment in the car, worried about Shane's health. Thankfully, the couple's children had mild symptoms, similar to Emily's. Fans tweeted out their support. "Emily held her hubs down. That was so scary. Glad everyone is doing better. #RHOC" said one fan.


"Emily really struggled during Covid-19. It was the most authentic story about it on HWives. You were really on your with no support or hep. Glad Shane is better. #RHOC". Another said, "Poor Emily, Being sick with 3 little ones and Shane in the hospital for EIGHT DAYS!!! She is so strong!! #RHOC"





But while Emily was trying to cope with her situation, what irked fans the most was the fact that Kelly Dodd seemed to be more preoccupied about her Napa trip. Fans were quick to take to Twitter to talk about how this made them feel. "The craziest episode...Emily's husband on the brink of death, while Kelly Dodd is upset she can't go to Napa. #RHOC"


Fans also came for Kelly regarding her statements about Covid-19, where she made an insensitive comment saying the virus is "God's way of thinning the herd." Seeing her on the episode had fans commenting and referencing her behavior towards the virus. One said, "So Emily was going through all this with Shane, yet Kelly was still being an idiot all over social media about Covid-19? How? #RHOC"

A user tweeted: "Kelly is the worst. She didn't care until it almost happened to her of course. #RHOC." "So Kelly did take COVID seriously. She was just mouthy and as I had assumed, she was just saying her thoughts out loud on social media. #RHOC" said another fan. 






Kelly did go on to apologize while talking to Andy Cohen on his show, 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen'. "It was a stupid thing for me to say, it was insensitive, and I apologize if I hurt or offended anybody, [because] it wasn't really my intention. I got freaked out about it. In hindsight it was the stupidest thing I've ever said," Kelly said. But by the looks of it, fans have made up their minds — the damage is done.

'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 15 airs every Wednesday at 9/8c on Bravo.
