RHOC Emily Simpson Sheds 15 Pounds, Debuts Slimmer Figure
The Real Housewives of Orange County viewers have watched Emily’s struggles with her weight and appearance. Her marriage problems with Shane are heavily featured on the hit show. In fact, he briefly moved into a hotel to study for his California bar exam test.
To make matters harder, Emily had hip replacement surgery in late October. She still made an appearance at Bravo’s fan convention in New York City in November. TV Shows Ace reported on Emily’s nasty hip replacement scar. She credited her new hip with helping her lose the weight.
“Not only did I want to lose weight to feel and look better, but I wanted to be healthier and set a good example for my kids! I haven’t felt this good in a long time and with a new hip, and 15 pounds off I’m finally able to keep up with my kids and be more active!”
So, how did Emily shed 15 pounds? A 12-week fitness program with coach Paulina Stein. Emily reveals that her pain and depression helped steer her to seeking out weight loss help.

Husband Shane Recently Failed the Bar Again
In this season of RHOC, Shane spends a lot of time studying for the bar exam that he took in early 2019. He failed that exam but took the test again in July. Emily revealed at BravoCon that her husband got the results of his latest exam, but was afraid to look at them. An internet-savvy fan offered to look up the results online right then.
The Bravo star declined the offer, saying she should wait until she got home. However, the media ran with the story and looked up the results. Spoiler: he failed for the fourth time. Radar Online reports that he won’t be eligible for another attempt until February of 2020.
