Emily Simpson hosted a Q&A session on her Instagram Stories on Sunday night, November 15, with husband Shane Simpson, and during their chat with her fans and followers, Shane answered a number of questions about The Real Housewives of Orange County.
In addition to revealing his biggest regret and the thing he likes most about his wife, Shane was asked which RHOC cast member he’d like to give the boot, which cast member is his favorite, and whether he’d like to appear on his very own reality show.
“Do you regret anything you’ve said [on] the show?” one fan asked after noting that Shane is “witty” and “funny.”
“I regret telling Kelly she was drunk. I should have told her she was a kind, beautiful lady and then offered her a drink,” Shane replied of co-star Kelly Dodd.
When another fan asked Shane what his favorite thing about Emily is, he panned the camera down to her butt.
A third fan asked Shane which cast member he’d boot if given the chance.
“You have to axe one lady from RHOC … who is it?” the person wondered.
“Oh, um… She’s already been asked,” Shane shared.
Although Shane didn’t reveal which ex-cast member he would have chosen to fire from RHOC, he’s had issues with both Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. As fans will recall, Vicki accused Emily of mooching off Shane’s family in a tweet shared in February, and years prior, Tamra suggested Shane was a coward for allowing Emily to fight his battles with Kelly.
“Do you think the way Bravo edits the show is fair?” someone else asked Shane, giving a nod to his questionable behavior during season 14.
“Yeah, I think they do the best they can to show highlights and personalities and stuff. It’s all good. I don’t really care. I think I’m funny,” he explained.
When another person asked Shane which RHOC star was his favorite friend of Emily’s, Shane named Shannon Beador after first joking that it was her golden retriever, Archie, who he liked best.
“Is Archie your friend? I like Shannon. She’s cool… and Archie,” he stated.
In one of the final questions of the chat, Shane was asked if he wants his own show.
“I really honestly think Shane could [carry his own show],” Emily replied.
“I want my own show!” Shane interjected, wondering, “Would they call it The Bachelor or Rock of Love?”
Then, as Emily laughed, Shane asked, “No? Why not?”
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
