As fans know, Emily, 43, has been picking up the parenting slack while Shane studies for the bar exam.
"Emily feels completely neglected by Shane. She’s very emotional right now," a source told RadarOnline.com.
Emily's decision to star on RHOC has been a huge point of contention for the couple.
The source continued, "Shane thinks that being on Housewives has changed her. If Shane had his way Emily would be a stay-at-home mom who is just there to take care of the kids. But she’s not."
Emily is a successful lawyer and party planner in addition to being a reality TV star, and it has left her husband feeling emasculated.
"She is successful and she works hard. It seems to be causing a lot of issues, because he doesn’t feel like as much of a man over it," the source explained.
