Emily Simpson made her debut this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Her husband, Shane Simpson, has made his debut, too. This season on the RHOC, he notably got into an argument with Kelly Dodd. However; Emily says her husband is misunderstood and that he is very “supportive.”
Emily recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live and said, “A lot of people have a misconception about Shane. You only see a very brief segment about him. I’ve been married to him for 10 years. He’s the best damn father you will ever meet. We have five kids. He never misses a ballet performance, he takes them to school in the morning, he makes lunches, he changes diapers. He is the best dad, and he is a family man. He is committed to me and our family, so give him a break, guys!”
Shane called in as a surprise to the Clubhouse, and Bravo host, Andy Cohen, asked him if he feels like he’s gotten a bad rap this season on the RHOC. Shane joked, “I feel like I get a bad rap just in general in life.”
There are a lot of fans who love him and a lot of fans who can’t stand him. Emily said, “I was most surprised by how so many episodes revolved around my husband. I really thought he would just be in the background the whole season.” She added, “He gets recognized more than I do. He takes selfies all the time.”
I think it’s sweet that Emily is standing by her man, and had such great things to say. It’s nice that Shane could make light of the situation too, when he called in. It’s sweet he called in as a surprise. Only so much can be shown in an episode and in a season, so there is always a lot more to it. They seem like a loving couple and good parents! It’s hilarious that she said he takes a lot of selfies and gets noticed more than she does. LOL!
