The legal drama continues for Real Housewives of New York alum Jules Wainstein. Last month, Jules was booked for battery in Palm Beach, Florida. She allegedly attacked her ex Michael Wainstein, in front of their two children.
As a result, the kids were released into Michael’s custody. He currently has a protective order against Jules.
At this point, I feel like the Real Housewives should just stay away from Palm Beach County. Nothing good ever happens to a Real Housewife in Palm Beach. Just ask Luann de Lesseps.
Former Real Housewives of New York cast member Jules Wainstein was arrested over the weekend after she (allegedly) attacked her soon-to-be-ex-husband Michael Wainstein. Jules was a less-than-memorable one-season cast member. However, she’s made some interesting headlines ever since her exit from RHONY, thanks to her increasingly nasty divorce from Michael. Just like Meghan Edmonds, Jules is a lot more interesting now than she ever was when she was on camera as a Real Housewife.
If there’s one thing Jules Wainstein is remembered for from her single season on The Real Housewives of New York City, it’s the awareness she brought to eating disorders by sharing her own lifelong struggle with one.
In a new interview, the RHONY one-season wonder is looking back on her decision to open up about her battle with bulimia, how it was received by her fellow Housewives and the impact her story had on fans watching the show.
It’s safe to say Jules Wainstein and Carole Radziwill were not pals during their time as cast mates on The Real Housewives of New York City.
However, it’s been years since the two butted heads in front of Bravo’s cameras. In a new interview, Jules is finally speaking out about what she thought of Carole while she was a Housewife and, perhaps more surprisingly, how her opinion of Writer Girl changed after leaving the show.
Jill Zarin was one of the OG’s on Real Housewives of New York when it debuted in 2008. She appeared with Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, Luann de Lesseps, and Alex McCord. Then Jill was fired after season 4 along with Alex and Kelly Bensimon.
Unlike some former Real Housewives who fade away like Jules Wainstein and Kristen Taekman, Jill has tried to regain her apple ever since. Her role model may be former BFF Bethenny who left and came back. Jill has tried to stay relevant with press interviews and cameo appearances on the show. That included filming at the funeral of husband Bobby Zarin, who died from cancer.
Real Housewives of New York come and go. Some stay visible in the public eye after leaving the show, like Carole Radziwill. And some fade away like Jules Wainstein and Kristen Taekman. Still others make occasional returns, like Heather Thomson and Jill Zarin. And one former New York Housewife even came back full time, Bethenny Frankel.
A past New York Housewife we have not heard much from lately is Kelly Bensimon, she of the meandering conversation and the confusing Kelly speak. Although she popped up for a few guest appearances on New York after Bravo’s major casting reboot after Season 4, Kelly has not been on the show in several years. She is now sharing an update on what she has been doing-and hinting that she might be ready to rejoin the reality television world!
The O Come OG Faithful episode of Watch What Happens Live was everything that I wanted and more. Andy Cohen gathered OG Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, and Kyle Richards for a special holiday celebration.
Before he provoked them to spill some tea and throw some shade, Andy announced, “Just so you know, Luann [de Lesseps] is doing her cabaret show tonight. Lisa Vanderpump is opening a restaurant in Las Vegas and she’s there prepping. Bethenny [Frankel] is under the weather.” To be fair, Bethenny almost died when she was hospitalized with an allergic reaction. To say that she was “under the weather” is an understatement.
This week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York began right where the last one left off, with Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps at odds. Luann questioned Dorinda on her drinking and Dorinda retaliated by calling her out for her drunken arrest and rehab stint.
Ironically enough, Luann is back in rehab, and she probably didn’t get a chance to watch this episode yet, but Dorinda sure did. She shared her side of the story with Andy Cohen during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
