As fans have seen so far on Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Emily Simpson and Shane Simpson are dealing with some distance as he studies for his bar exam. He hasn't been by his wife's side for several occasions as he separates himself from the family's day to day to make this next chapter happen. And even before this season premiered, Emily made it clear, in an update for The Daily Dish, that the couple was definitely experiencing some growing pains.
"There's up and there's downs. That's what marriage is all about," she shared at the time (in the video above) about their marriage of 10 years. "At the end of the day, we're committed, and we'll make it work."
So, given those "ups and downs," Tamra Judge recently shared her assessment of their relationship in an interview with Us Weekly, revealing whether she thinks they may suffer from the divorce curse felt by many reality TV couples some day in the future because he's “just not around," according to Tamra: “Probably … Yeah, I think so.”
While Tamra is currently happily married to Eddie Judge, she knows what it feels like to share your marital woes with the world and divorce in front of the cameras. In fact, she and her ex-husband, Simon Barney, had a very public break-up on RHOC, a moment she recalled in the video below.
