RHOC Star Emily Simpson's Husband Shane Fails California Bar Exam: Report

Real Housewives of Orange County star Emily Simpson‘s husband is still working toward his goal of becoming a licensed lawyer.

Shane Simpson failed the California state bar exam he took this past February, according to E! News.

“The pass rate in Feb. 2019 was only 31 percent,” an insider told the outlet. “It’s the hardest bar exam in the country.”

The reality star’s name is not currently included on the California Bar Organization website, while Emily, who works as an attorney, is listed.

Shane has reportedly since taken the exam again and is currently awaiting those results.

PEOPLE is out to Emily for comment.

At one point, it was revealed that Shane had temporarily moved into a hotel to help him focus on the test. After he completed the exam and returned home, Emily attempted to discuss her feelings with Shane — which didn’t go well.

“I feel very upset and resentful towards you,” she said, suggesting the couple attend counseling. “And I know you feel upset and resentful towards me.”

After the episode aired, Emily posted an impassioned Instagram post about the importance of being able to support yourself.

“Cheers to all the strong mamas out there busting your butt every day to give your kids the best life ever,” she wrote. “Cheers to all the strong women out there getting an education so that you can be empowered and always take care of yourself. Cheers to anyone getting in shape for a healthier version of you! Keep going and don’t quit!”
