Whether she's eating a turkey sandwich in a sauna or chugging a 2L bottle of ginger ale while bikini shopping, the RHOC cast member continues to prove she's ready for anything.

On this Season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Emily Simpson has proven time and time again that she is always prepared to get through the day — thanks to some unexpected food and drink choices. 

How to Watch

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

First, there was the turkey sandwich. On the show's January 12 episode, Emily shocked Heather Dubrow and Dr. Jen Armstrong when she pulled the sandwich out of her bag in the middle of a sauna session. "I like to carry food in my purse," she explained on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "Sometimes in the middle of the day, if I don’t eat, I feel like I’m gonna pass out, and if I was in a sauna, I mean, it’s like hot, it gets sweaty, so I wanted to have sustenance.” (Perfectly reasonable, if you ask us.)

While some might consider skipping a day of shopping with friends after drinking many, many tequila shots the night before, on the show's January 19 episode, Emily showed once again that she was ready to take on the day — but not without cradling a two-liter bottle of soda in her arms. 

"It's ginger ale. it's been riding in the passenger seat with me all day," Emily told Jen and Nicole James as they prepared to try on bathing suits. "This is my IV right here."

In a tweet, Emily offered another explanation for the drink, writing, "I preferred a turkey sub, but after all those tequila shots nothing would stay down."
