In a new interview, the reality star who joined the cast for season 13 noted that she Not watch the show religiously, no matter how Vicki Gunvalson made it seem.
“I never really had a conversation with Vicki. Vicki doesn’t really click with someone who’s new, “laughed Emily Juicy shovel Podcast host Heather McDonald. “I remember my first season where Vicki kept calling me a super fan or something and I thought I wasn’t even watching it!”
The attorney admitted that she had “not really enjoyed” the first two seasons of the show and revealed that the “difficult” time she had considered quitting for good.
“[For] the first two years. I said, “Why am I doing this? I just have to practice law and be Emily and take care of my children. “It worried me a lot,” she shared. “Last year was so tough for me. I’ve lost a lot of hair just from stress. It wasn’t healthy Shane[Simpson] and I didn’t get along Gina [Kirschenheiter] And I didn’t get along, it was like a knife in my heart. “
She added how much better this season was because she looked good again with Gina and improved her marriage to her husband Shane.
“[F]or he, it was just that I don’t want to be in a situation that could potentially endanger our marriage, our family, our children. For the first two seasons, a lot of animosity or problems in our marriage had to do with his refusal to film or do things, ”she explained. “And if they did film him, he’d be mad because he didn’t want to. So I say, ‘Great, can you just pretend you like me?” And he says,’ No, I want this now don’t pretend I’m hungry, I don’t want a microphone, I don’t want to film. ‘
Describing how they’d gotten into a married couple from that infamous Google chat engagement, Emily shared that she “never felt attracted” while working with Shane, as she wasn’t attracted to someone who was married was.
The mother of three admitted she thought it was “weird” and took Shane and his parents (whom she “didn’t know so well”) to the courthouse in their Bentley, who were carrying a $ 40 gray banana in the Republic Dress.
“I had no idea what was going on. I said, ‘What? I’m in a Bentley and I’m getting married? “I’m so confused, I’m from Ohio, I have no idea,” she laughed.
Emily added that while Shane received a lot of flack online after fans got a front row seat in their troubled marriage, “never cared what people thought of him,” and, in fact, not from criticism social media was affected.
He may take this attitude with him on his next bar exam project that Emily is concerned about.
“I have a feeling that Shane just has to do something else, but he’s very determined to reach the goal like he just wants to take the bar so he can prove it, but … it’s hard!” she exclaimed. “I think we really want to go through? [the whole world watching] once again?! Not me! There are so many memes from Shane that don’t pass the bar. Do we need to add more? “
“Were you really upset when he went to the hotel to study?” podcast host Heather asked, considering a lot of fan reactions to Shane’s allegedly shady behavior.
“No! I booked the hotel for him! So many people said,” Oh, he’s cheating on them “and I thought I had booked the hotel! I know where he is! If I wanted to show up any minute, I can. she replied, “I took two bar exams so I know what it takes to pass and you can’t get distracted. So I thought no you have to go to a hotel and you lock yourself in the hotel and study all day and that’s all you do. “
She added with a laugh, “It didn’t work, but we tried.”
