Bravotv.com: How has Shannon's treatment of you differed from the other ladies in the group?
Emily Simpson: I have always been a girls’ girl. I think women need healthy and inspiring friendships with other women to make their life whole and fulfilling. It was so fun hanging out with the other ladies to watch Shannon on QVC. She did so great!!
I remember asking her about it often and even sent her a text before her appearance wishing her good luck. However, she never responded. In general, I have never received much effort from Shannon.
I realize she has a full and busy life, as do I, but even when we are actually together, I’ve never felt Shannon try to engage with me, reciprocating questions about my life, family, career, or children. In fact, the only time I’ve seen her eyes light up and engage in a conversation with me was when she was talking about salmon with herbed cream sauce.
I apologize, Shannon, that you have never seen “Fun Emily.” You might be surprised to find out that I am really fun to be around. As far as “Fun Shannon,” I’ve given up on that urban legend. I’d settle for “Happy Shannon.” Heck, I’ll even take “Nice Shannon” or “Common Courtesy Shannon” at this point! Maybe someday Shannon will realize we have a lot in common, we will become friends, and she can finally unblock me from her Instagram page.
Bravotv.com: Why do you think your husband is so resistant to having another baby? Why are you so resistant to destroying the embryos?
ES: Right now, I am unable to make a decision regarding our embryos. My heart breaks just thinking about the choices. The trauma and heartbreak that we endured for those five years was difficult, and so I feel such an emotional connection to them. I still hold onto the idea that maybe I will have another child someday. Never say never!
As always… I love connecting and interacting with you all on Instagram! Follow me @rhoc_emilysimpson
