Julianne “Jules” Wainstein has just sold her soul and sanity to Real Housewives of New York and she couldn’t be more excited! Jules believes she was born to be on reality TV. Oh no… I’m already nervous about this one.
“My whole life, everyone said, ‘You need your own reality show.’ But I never thought it would actually happen,” gushes Jules. “It’s still like a dream.”

She joined the show as a friend of Dorinda Medley, whom she met attending a wedding together five years ago. “She called me up one day, and she was like, ‘Would you be interested in being a Housewife?’” recalls Jules. “I kind of get high off of taking risks. So I couldn’t say no.”
The Jewish mother of two is married to her childhood friend, venture capitalist Michael Wainstein. Originally from Upstate NY, Jules attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she obtained a degree in Fashion Merchandising (just like Sonja Morgan!). From there Jules, became an event planner, until she married. “I couldn’t work anymore, because we were traveling all the time,” she explains to the NY Post. (AKA,

Jules had a few reservations about showcasing her over-the-top life on TV – which included never wearing the same outfit twice during filming – but her strategy was to just put it all out there “Everyone says, ‘Just be real, just be you,’” she explains.
So far, being part of Real Housewives Of New York has been a great experience for Jules, who admits, “I love attention.”
“It’s fun,” adds the 35-year-old. “Imagine having your hair and makeup professionally done all the time, and then people, like, staring at you through a lens.” Oh dear… Oh dear… Oh dear…
Although, Jules concedes it wasn’t always easy to get along with such a dynamic group of women. As the preview shows, Jules and Bethenny had “moments.” Jules also doesn’t seem to be a Countess fan, naming Luann de Lesseps the show’s “biggest diva.”
“She has a strong personality . . . so you expect it,” Jules remarks about Luann.
