Emily Simpson is an attorney, part-time party planner, and media personality.

Emily Simpson met 'RHOC' star Tamra Judge through her side hustle.

Emily decided to launch a second career as a party-planner in the mid-2010s, and new requests soon started rolling in. One of the socialites reaching out to her was no other than Tamra Judge, an entrepreneur and RHOC legend who needed some help with throwing her granddaughter, Ava, a birthday celebration she wouldn't forget. They then fell out because Emily started spending time with Tamra's ex-besties, or so holds the rumor.

Either way, Emily promptly showed up on the set of Season 13 of RHOC, immediately bonding with the cast members — however, she wasn't going to be confused with the average socialite. As she emphasized in the Season 13 trailer, she worked her way to the top. "A lot of women don't have to work," Emily said. "When I throw the attorney thing in there, it's like, 'No, girl, I'm not your typical housewife.'"

Emily Simpson was raised by a single mother in Madison Township, Ohio.

As Emily revealed in an essay published by Bravo, her father left the family, including her, her sister, Sara, and her mom, when she was only 6 years old. After graduating from the local high school, she fought her way to the top, attending the University of Miami before securing a spot at a private law school, the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, Calif. To get by, she worked as a Spanish teacher back in the day.
