When Emilia served as the guest bartender during the September 10 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Andy Cohen asked during the After Show if the Million Dollar Listing New York regular was a fan of The Real Housewives. Not only Emilia confirm that she loves the Housewives as much as the rest of us, she also shared how much they have really touched her life.
"So I have to tell you that the Housewives got me through IVF and through my pregnancy," Emilia said (clip above). "So I really appreciate all of you because I was pretty much alone most of the time."
Emilia showed her gratitude to two legendary Housewives in the Clubhouse that night: The Real Housewives of Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. They, along with all of their fellow Housewives have helped many people during some of the darkest times of their lives, according to Andy. "I've heard that a lot about IVF, pregnancy, illness," the WWHL host said, echoing Emilia's sentiment during the After Show.
Emilia previously described her experience with IVF as "a long, painful journey." "I felt such a need to be private about my pregnancy on social media because I had so many ups and downs," she said in a post on Instagram on March 4. "I found the anxiety overwhelming."
Of course, Emilia's hubby was also there to help her get through this difficult time. “To my Puff monkey @ryanserhant. Thank you for coming to every [doctor’s] appointment this [past] year. For giving me shots every night for weeks upon weeks. For crying with me, for snuggling me, for reassuring me, for giving me courage. Thank you for telling me I’m beautiful every day even when it was questionable. Thank you for rubbing my belly at night while you were sleeping. For tying my shoes and letting me borrow your clothes. Thank you for watching the entire birth of our baby and still thinking I am hot. Thank you for being the best swaddler-diaper changer-baby whisperer ever,” Emilia gushed in a post on Instagram on March 7. “Thank you for chasing after me all those years ago until I said yes..Thank you for a life [and] love I could only dream of. Thank you for working SO HARD for our family. But most of all thank you for the GREATEST GIFT OF MY FREAKING LIFE.”
