Well, someone found her voice this week on The Real Housewives of New York – even if it was only in her blog! Jules Wainstein unleashed her opinions about Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill in no uncertain terms. Jules’ writing is so sharp in fact, Carole even took to twitter to disparage Jules further and defend herself, re-tweeting one viewer’s pointed question, “I think Jules used a ghostwriter to write this weeks blog. What do u think?” Hmm. You be the judge!
Jules begins by wondering, “‘Why is there always yelling and screaming? Why is someone always storming out of the room in tears? Why is someone always being mocked, insulted, judged or left out? WHAT PLANET ARE WE ON?!’ And then it hit me like a meteor: We are on planet Bethenny. Unlike on planet Earth where friendships are formed and shaped through mutual support and encouragement, on planet Bethenny (which is circled 24/7 by a moon named Carole) it is acceptable for friends to disparage one another behind their backs, to judge, berate and abandon one another on an almost constant basis.” Uh-oh. Shots fired! SHOTS FIRED!
The radio show was aired the day before the RHONY reunion taping. Bethenny is sick, but joked that she can’t imagine what would happen if she called in sick to the reunion. Bethenny sniped “I mean Jules can call in sick because it’s not even like she’s going to be there, but I don’t think I can call in sick tomorrow.” They speculated that they’ll be seated next to each other, but we all know now that wasn’t the case.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York left a big question mark over my head. Am I stupid is as stupid does? Because why exactly is Bethenny Frankel so angry atJules Wainstein? Actually, angry isn’t the world, “spooked” is. And what exactly did Bravo NOT show us that is so pertinent to what caused this explosion? Color me three shades of ‘Bethenny lost 10% of her blood’ pale.

Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
Besides getting her coochie-coo checked out by a plastic surgeon this week,Jules Wainstein didn’t play a large role on The Real Housewives of New York. So…she’s decided to talk more about LAST week’s episode! In her blog, Jules reiterates her disdain for mean girls, namely Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. (I may be numbed by watching WAY too much reality TV, but if Jules thinks what she’s experienced is truly mean girl behavior from her cast mates….well, strap in and get a helmet, girlfriend!)
Jules begins, “It takes a lot to get me angry. I always go into situations with an open heart and mind and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but there is only so much negative energy I can stand until even I get defensive and lash out. I believe that people should take responsibility for the energy they bring into the room, and recognize that this energy shapes and affects our interactions with others.”
I figured that watching yourself on reality TV would make you a very reflective person and give you inspiration to make self improvements or at the very least make yourself look better after saying embarrassing shit. Apparently this is not really the case when it comes to Luann de Lesseps.
For some reason Luann expressed that she thought that the other women on Real Housewives of New York were jealous of her engagement to Tom D’Agostino during the last episode. If anything, the women were just shocked that she got engaged so quickly to someone who was “dating” both Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan pretty recently. Time has passed and the episode has aired and Luann has not clarified her statements. Instead, she maintains that the other women are super envious of her love life…
