Simpson began her career with DPFG in San Juan Capistrano, California, as a real estate consultant. Emily and her husband Shane met at DPFG, where they both worked.

Emily is currently employed as an attorney at the Santa Ana legal firm Higbee & Associates. As a paralegal associate, she got her foot in the door and worked her way up. Her current title is copyright attorney. The firm works hard to preserve their clients’ intellectual property. Up-and-coming professional photographers, writers, producers, and musicians are among the clients.

She and her husband worked at Pranno Law in Salt Lake City, Utah for a year before returning to California. Simpson is licensed to practice law in both California and Utah after passing the bar exams in both states.

In the mid-2010s, Emily decided to start a second job as a party planner, and new requests began to pour in.

According to hearsay, they split up when Emily began spending time with Tamra’s ex-besties. (4)

Real Housewives of Orange County Storyline for Emily Simpson

Emily Simpson made her reality television debut in the thirteenth season of Real Housewives of Orange County in 2018. Her husband Shane has ruffled some feathers with his scathing and snide remarks that has clearly affected their reputation on the show and their marriage as well, but the newcomer fits in well with the cast. However, she’s undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with as she’s feisty and knows when to fight. She’s had a lot of falling out with different cast members and continues to clash with them over some things.

On season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Emily Simpson has been struggling. Not only has the Bravo star been dealing with her marriage, but she’s also been watching her friendship with Gina Kirschenheiter deteriorate, Simpson was involved in a storyline with her friend Kirschenheiter. The former set up the latter on a date who ends up canceling at the last minute due to a toe injury.  Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson’s friendship has deteriorated in recent months, with a clear chasm forming between the two once-close friends. Gina said that this was hard for her and she loves Emily, but their friendship is confusing because she does not know if she can trust Emily or not.. She added that being betrayed by Emily felt worse than going to jail.

To add to the drama, Tamra Judge has a strained relationship with Simpson, and the two have lately engaged in a Twitter fight.

At his gym, Simpson went in for an evaluation from Eddie Judge. The housewife stepped on the scale to determine her body fat percentage. It was concluded that she was “fat” based on the results. Following the Bravo episode, fans had a lot to say, and Simpson reacted.

“At 34% body fat, Emily is not obese.” “Shame on Tamra and Eddie,” one fan wrote on Twitter. The housewife replied to the tweet with a “thank you,” but Judge was not pleased with Simpson’s reaction and lashed back, writing, “You are unbelievable.” “We try to help you and I’ve seen multiple tweet[s] of yours that are not nice. Eddie spent over an hour with you talking health [and] nutrition. No one made you get on the scale. It’s becoming old for you to play [the] victim.”

Simpson explained her reply to the fan by telling, “I simply said ‘thank you’ to someone who said I wasn’t ‘obese.’ That’s all. If you want to read more into that, that’s on you.”

Despite the fact that fellow housewife Vicki Gunvalson will not be featured in season 15 of the Bravo reality show, she still has a beef with Emily Simpson. The latter is entering her third season as a housewife and is savagely mocking Gunvalson. Gunvalson and Simpson have been feuding on Twitter for a message in December 2019. Gunvalson was responding to a recent episode and included Simpson in his tweet. A fan responded to Gunvalson’s tweet at the time, stating Simpson spent “too much time with the vile Kelly Dodd,” to which Gunvalson replied, “Yep, she drank the kool-aid.”

“And by ‘drank the kool-aid,’ you mean I didn’t turn on Kelly and hate her like the three of you wanted me to do,” Simpson tweeted on December 12, 2019. “Your agenda was to turn everyone on the cast against Kelly and ice her out so she would be fired. I didn’t fall for it.” she continued.

Just this year, Emily Simpson is slamming Braunwyn Windham-Burke for hinting she should’ve been fired instead of her. (5)
