Emily Simpson is new on Season 13 of The Real Housewives of Orange County. She isn’t coming in blind though since she knows some of the women and has been aware of some of what has transpired on previous seasons of RHOC.

Orange County isn’t where Emily Simpson is initially from. She is originally from Ohio but her life has settled in California now.

Emily Simpson a lawyer but that’s not her only job.  She’s is also a part-time party planner, which is where her tie to The Real Housewives of Orange County comes in.

Emily actually planned the baby shower that Tamra Judge threw for her granddaughter, Ava. Unfortunately, Emily and Tamra fell out.

It is unclear if they have reconciled at this point or if they will be sparring on Season 13 of RHOC.  The way things usually work on the show though, it’s safe to say that sparks will fly.

Being a mom is important to Emily Simpson. After years of struggles to get pregnant, Emily’s sister stepped up to be the surrogate for all three of the Simpson children.

Emily and her husband have a daughter and twin sons. Things are busy in their household with a large family and two active careers.

Shane Simpson is Emily’s husband and he is also an attorney. It’s not clear if Shane and Emily met in the courtroom and we’re hoping to hear more of their backstory as Season 13 of The Real Housewives of Orange County gets started.

Emily’s husband has two kids from a previous relationship, something that has been brought up on occasion. His divorce wasn’t pretty, but as of now, he is on amicable terms with his ex and they share custody of the two girls.

The Simpsons have been married for nearly a decade. Emily married Shane on February 14, 2009, and now, they have three children together. Stepping into the world of reality television is going to be an adjustment, but they are jumping in with both feet.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9/8c on Bravo.
