Well, the O.C. is about to get a little fresher as the Real Housewives of Orange County finally add some fresh faces to the line-up. While many tried and true favorites will be returning to the hit Bravo show, fans are excited to get to know two brand new ladies, both introduced to the group by long time member Tamra Judge.
First to join the group is Emily Simpson. The Ohio native is a wife, an attorney with two bar licenses, and a part-time party planner. She’s also a wife and mother of five — with two daughters from her husband Shane‘s previous marriage, one biological daughter of her own, and two twin boys.
In the new trailer, she says, “A lot of women don’t have to work, but when I throw the attorney thing in there, I’m like ‘No, girl. I’m not your typical Housewife.’”
Her social media is littered with photos of her family (both professional shots and candid pictures, like of her daughter falling in the garden). Her sister served as her surrogate after she struggled with fertility issues, and Emily has been very open about the important role her sibling played in her pregnancy.
According to her official Bravo biography, she has a “true rags to riches story.”
