When it comes to Emily Simpson are we going to get “Fun Emily” or “Shady Emily”? Fellow castmate Shannon Beador is spilling the tea. And it’s probably not what Emily wants to hear. There’s no doubt that the two have started off this season of Real Housewives of Orange County on the wrong foot.
After confiding in Emily and Gina Kirschenheiter about her knowledge of Nicole James, Shannon quickly found herself in trouble. Gina was the one who shared the info with Heather Dubrow that Nicole sued them, but Emily seemed all too happy to grill Nicole about it. Was she just pulling Gina’s strings and letting her do the dirty work of telling Heather?
At Emily’s husband’s party to celebrate him passing the bar, Emily was also pretty excited to interrogate newbie Jen Armstrong about her past. In fairness, she was “Drunk Emily” or rather, “Very Drunk Emily” at the time. And I’m not sure how much of what she was questioning is actually providing drama. Mainly because no one seems to care about what Dr. Jen is bringing to the table currently, let alone in her past.
But maybe Shannon knows something we don’t. Because on a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, she called Emily out as the biggest pot stirrer of the cast. Host Andy Cohen did an audience poll for who earned the title and the numbers weren’t all that surprising. Noella Bergener came in first at 56%, with Gina a distant second at 20%. Shannon ended up at 12%, Emily at 6%, Heather at 4% and Jen at 1%.

But Shannon didn’t agree with the audience. She objected,”Emily is number one.” A surprised Andy asked, “What?” and Shannon repeated, “Emily is number one.” Andy continued pressing and replied, “Is she the biggest pot stirrer?” to which Shannon immediately confirmed, “Absolutely.” When Andy questioned again, “Oh, really?”, Shannon nodded her head.
So clearly, we know where Shannon stands on the topic. How she got there is the big question. The mid-season trailer provided us with Emily telling someone to “shut the off up.” And Shannon yelling, “I own my sh**, she owns f***ing nothing.” Which given her issues with Gina, made me think that’s who Shannon was referring to. Maybe it was but it seems like Shannon has developed some beef with Emily since the season has progressed. Or is Shannon deflecting, which she has a tendency to do? Either way, thanks to the trailer promising the season some much needed life, I’m looking forward to finding out.
