Jules Wainstein‘s pin thin frame had viewers (and housewives) whispering as soon as she came on the RHONY scene. Jules has opened up to what many had suspected (that she had been battling an eating disorder for the majority of her life) and now the dark haired beauty is hoping to be an inspiration to others like her.

Jules was recently a guest on WWHL in Andy’s clubhouse and courageously opened up on her battle along with why she decided to share:

“You know, I’m not like, ‘Hi, I’m Julianne Wainstein, and I have an eating disorder. But if it’s appropriate, like at that time we had lunch together, and she asked me why I had a break in my college years. And I said, ‘Oh, because I was in a treatment center.’ It was the right time, and I’m very open about it. It’s part of my recovery.”

“Every day’s a new day. You’re never cured of an eating disorder, but you live with it, and you can live a life with it. It’s really hard to talk about. You can live with it, and you can live a normal life.”

On what she hopes will come out of sharing her struggle:

“I knew it would be a topic, but I thought it would be a positive thing. I’m hoping it to be a positive thing. And I’m very open about it, and I’m hoping that maybe someone watching, a viewer watching will see my story and I can maybe help them.”

I applaud Jules for being open, honest and not ashamed of her struggle with an eating disorder. She admits she struggles with it everyday but also states that she can live a normal life. She also mentioned a big fear of hers was not being able to have children, and seeing her with her children and husband you can tell she doesn’t take her family for granted.

Did you catch Jules on WWHL? What were your thoughts on her opening up?
