When it comes to Emily Simpson’s life on The Real Housewives of Orange County, practically nothing is off limits. Since joining the series in Season 13, Emily has been an open book while sharing details about her family, friendship dynamics, and her marriage to her husband, Shane Simpson.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

The most recent example was in Season 17, Episode 8 of RHOC, where Emily made not one by two NSFW confessions about her and Shane's sex life. Although moments like that make great television for fans, it may not be the easiest thing to relive again as it airs, especially if drama is involved.

More specifically, Emily touched upon the matter by revealing whether she and her better half tune into weekly showings of RHOC when asked about her highs and lows of the season in a recent interview with

Does Emily and Shane Simpson watch RHOC? She says….

“I don’t watch the season, so I don’t know,” Emily said before explaining that she knows what happens in the show. “I mean… I lived it and Shane gives me the notes, but I really don’t watch the episodes.”

The orange holder may not have voiced her high of the season, but she did admit to having a good time while filming it, saying, “I think it was a good season. I had a lot of fun this season, maybe too much fun.”

As Emily mentioned, Shane is an avid watcher of RHOC, which made her realize that she had to “rehash” a few things at the Season 17 reunion.

Speaking of the reunion, Emily dished about her look for the Season 17 sit-down. Emily chose a "simple" curve-hugging coral  to highlight her recent body transformation. “I’ve lost weight, like 40 pounds,” she shared with “I definitely wanted a dress that showed off that I’ve been working really hard.”

When it was time for her to share the recent happenings in her children's lives, Emily talked about how Annabelle is a part of a competitive cheerleading team. As for her twin sons, Keller and Luke, the RHOC mom called them “adorable.”

She added, “I love them with all my heart - all the kids are good.”
