It’s been clear to Real Housewives of Orange County fans since the beginning of Season 14 that there are some serious problems in Emily Simpson’s marriage. But despite all of the evidence that her marriage to Shane is in trouble, Emily continues to believe that it’s simply a rough patch and everything will turn out just fine.
Simpson – who is an attorney, part-time party planner, and mom-of-three – has been taking care of everything at home this season while Shane has been studying for the California bar exam. He even disappeared for a while to study at a hotel by himself without distraction.

Shane has not been around to help with the house and kids, and he also skipped a birthday party that Emily hosted for his parents. During an episode earlier this season, Emily called Shane to find out when he would show up for the party, but he was rude and hung up on her.
The couple is also preparing to celebrate ten years of marriage, but Shane doesn’t seem interested in that, either. Emily planned to take Shane to Las Vegas and perform a sexy dance for him, but he said he wasn’t comfortable with that and told her to go without him.
Emily ended up taking her RHOC co-stars and performing her dance for them. And, after watching the performance during a rehearsal, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Tamra Judge couldn’t believe that Shane willingly missed out and chose not to support his wife.
Like RHOC fans, Emily’s co-stars have noticed that things aren’t right between Emily and Shane, and Gina Kirschenheiter shared that when her ex-husband was constantly gone it was because he was cheating on her. And, it wouldn’t be a surprise to her if the same thing was going on with Emily and Shane.
Still, Emily says that her marriage has simply hit some rough times and she believes they will get through it.
“Shane and I, we’re in a difficult situation right now,” Emily admitted during a recent episode. “I’m reluctant to share things about my marriage because I don’t want people to jump on a bandwagon of bashing my husband.”

Emily’s most recent Instagram post has some fans wondering if she has finally figured out what’s really going on in her marriage. The 43-year-old posted a pic with one of her sons, and she cryptically wrote in the caption that at the end of the day, all that really matters is what her kids think of her. She didn’t mention Shane at all.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
