As fans know, The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s husband has been away from home to study for the bar exam and his distance has created major problems in his marriage.
A source tells Radar Online that Shane Simpson took the California Bar exam in February and failed. He took it again over the summer and is waiting for the results. He is not currently not permitted to practice law in California. Fans were quick to clown the RHOC dad, who is known for his sarcastic digs towards Emily.
Shane is a weakass douche! And a major dumbass to boot! Taking the bar for the third time! Bet he fails!#RHOC

Shane is so jealous of his wife. It’s so obvious. She passed the bar the first time and he’s on his 3rd or 4th attempt. #RHOC

Emily and Shane’s marriage crisis and cringeworthy interactions have played out in season 14 for viewers to witness. Shane opted to stay in a hotel while he studied for the exam and appears completely checked out of his marriage while his wife begs for his affection. Outraged fans on Twitter called out Shane’s behavior towards his wife.
Oh Emily ,honey, when you haven't seen your man for 10 days and he gives you a one arm hug and offers his cheek… it means it's time to move on. I think Shane's cheating, much like David Beador was before he confessed 🤷♀️ #RHOC

I like Emily but I just don’t understand how the producers kept her on the show with Shane. Her home scenes are so cringeworthy. It’s so uncomfortable to watch. Then again, look at where BH is going. Evolution has lost the plot. They don’t know good tv anymore. #RHOC

Shane is on national television disrespecting his wife. He knew anything he said could be a final cut. If I were Emily, I would be filing for divorce tomorrow #RHOC

In a recent episode, Shane Simpson returned home after staying in a hotel for 2 weeks and you could cut the tension between the couple with a knife.
“I have trouble with the way that you talk to me sometimes,” Emily said to Shane. “I don’t like the condescending tone. It’s sarcasm all the time. I get tired of being the butt of all your jokes sometimes.”
The couple, who commemorated their 10-year wedding anniversary alone during the season, share three kids.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
