‘RHOC’ Star Emily Simpson Gives Update On Her Brutal Recovery After Hip Surgery
Emily Simpson underwent hip surgery on October 28 and the pain hasn’t subsided for The Real Housewives of Orange County star! Emily took to Instagram over the weekend and gave fans an update on her recovery.
“My mom rubbing pain reliever on my knees because they are throbbing in pain,” Emily shared on her Instagram Story on November 2. “43 years-old and I just want my mom to take care of me.”
Her 4-year-old twin sons also helped out by putting muscle relief cream on her legs. “My cute in-home nurses,” she gushed.
Emily shared a photo of her husband Shane gripping her hand amid speculation that the couple was headed towards divorce. This season of RHOC showed tension between the couple. The father-of-five kept making fun of his wife and she revealed she felt “resentful” towards him while he was away taking the BAR exam.
Despite the tension between the couple on-air, their relationship has been on the mend. “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,” a source told RadarOnline.com.

“It’s been brutal,” the source said about Emily dealing with Shane’s demeanor. “But being on the show was a dose of self-awareness he needed.”
Shane, 44, has also stepped up in a big way since Emily’s surgery. “I hope you all enjoy your time with family today. I’ve definitely felt better, but I’m trying to stay positive and focus on healing and remembering all the amazing people in my life!” she wrote on Instagram on November 3. “My babies, my dog, and my husband haven’t left my side. I’m in so much physical pain, but emotionally my heart ❤️ is FULL. My family is my everything!”
The lawyer previously revealed that had to undergo surgery on her hip because her “mobility was severely compromised due to the cartilage in my left hip basically deteriorating away.”
Emily’s been open about her struggle with arthritis and chronic pain as she goes through her weight loss journey. “Chronic pain is debilitating and I basically gave up,” she shared in September. “But now, along with losing inches, I’ve changed my lifestyle for the better! I’m healthier, I have more energy, I make better choices, and I’m overall happier!”
