Real housewives of Orange County star Emily Simpson’s husband is not yet a licensed attorney.
PEOPLE confirms that Shane Simpson failed the California bar exam he passed in July. The reality star’s name is currently not on the California Bar Organization website, while Emily Simpson, who works as a lawyer, is listed.
Emily Simpson addressed her husband’s latest attempt during the RHOC casting panel at BravoCon on Sunday and said her husband had not yet verified his own results.
“He should have got them, but he won’t look,” she said, “I can’t understand whether he’s waiting for me to come home. He had a hard time last time (he did the test), so I don’t know if he avoids looking or if he knows he screwed up.”
When a fan in the audience offered to look up the results for her, Emily Simpson insisted on waiting until she came home to find out if he had passed or not.

Shane had taken the exam before in February, but had not passed it.
“It’s one of the hardest bars in the country to pass. There was a success rate of 31 percent. So 69 percent of the people do not pass through,” said a source at that time to the people. “It’s not like he’s in this minority where everyone but him passes by.”
But according to online documents, 50.1 percent of the participants passed the July test.
Tensions over Shane’s preparation for the February test were an important focus of RHOC’s last season, with Emily Simpson admitting that his studies put a strain on her relationship.
At one point it was noted that Shane had temporarily moved into a hotel to help him focus on the test. After completing the test and returning home, Emily Simpson tried to discuss her feelings with Shane – which didn’t go well.
“I feel very angry and angry at you,” she said, suggesting that the couple attend a consultation. “And I know that you feel angry and angry at me.”
During the panel on Sunday, Emily Simpson admitted that Shane was not the only problem in her relationship.
“Sometimes he says things that are really benign and I go,” she said, “I say, “I want the divorce and this and that. It’s both of us, it’s not just him.
