A true rags-to-riches story, Emily is an Ohio transplant who came from nothing and willed herself to great success to become an attorney, a part-time party planner, a wife, and a mom. However, motherhood has been a bumpy road for her after years of fertility and pregnancy issues. Resigned to the fact that she could not successfully carry her own children, Emily's sister Sara stepped in as a surrogate for all three of Emily and her husband Shane's children - daughter Annabelle and twin boys Luke and Keller. With three children under five, and two step-daughters from Shane's previous marriage, Emily and Shane are trying to plan out the future of their family and their careers together. Emily planned Tamra's baby shower for granddaughter Ava a few years back, but had a falling out with her shortly after befriending some of Tamra's former besties. Now focused on mending the toxic relationships in her life, Emily hopes that she can find true friendships with the ladies.
