On the final day of their cast trip to Key West, cast members Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Emily decided to head over to a popular attraction, The Hemingway Home and to a little jet skiing. Housewife Kelly, 44, seemingly had a hard time getting that hang of things but Emily, on the other hand, looked like a pro.
Emily revealed during her confessional that she’s so skilled at jet skiing because she used to a date a drug dealer. “I have been jet skiing many many times because I used to date a drug dealer who had a boat and a lot of jet skis,” the reality star revealed.
Luckily the attorney’s love interests have changed over the years. The housewife star is currently married to Shane Simpson and is a mother to five children. Over the course of the show, viewers watched as Emily and Shane, 44, try and navigate through their troubled marriage.
The pair’s marital drama was first noticed when Shane was studying for the Bar exam. During his preparation for the exam, the budding attorney would leave Emily alone for long periods of time which put a strain on the reality star who had to juggle work and kids.
During one of the episodes, viewers learned that Shane had temporarily moved out of their home and went to a hotel, so he could study and concentrate better. Shane ultimately failed the exam a total of four times. Emily shared her hurt feelings with her husband once the test was over and he returned home.
“I feel very upset and resentful towards you,” Emily said on camera. “And I know you feel upset and resentful towards me.” In October 2019, she opened up to Bravo's The Daily Dish about Shane's failures. “It was a huge thing in our family that was like everybody sacrificing so Shane could take the bar exam. So, it’s like, I’m taking care of the kids, his parents are helping, his sister’s helping, it was like the whole Simpson family was all running around doing all these things so he could take the bar exam. And then for him not to pass, it was pretty devastating.”
A source revealed to Radar Online that since Emily’s hip surgery in October 2019, Shane’s behavior has changed tremendously. "He took her to the hospital, watched the kids,” the insider explained. “He’s such a good dad. Five kids and he’s always with them, picking them up, shuttling them around and making lunches.” The source added, “Things have been good. He’s really changed. He’s the husband she’s always wanted and deserved...He would never leave Emily; he’s obsessed with her.”
