While this couple just joined the Bravo family recently, their divorce is getting nastier by the day, and the whole thing is playing out in the media. According to Page Six, Michael is now trying to forbid Bravo from airing footage with his young children. Jagger and Rio Wainstein often appear on RHONY with their mother Jules, and we’ve seen so much of them this season already, so that seems like a pointless demand at this point!
Allegedly, Michael had his lawyer Mark Jay Heller issue a legal letter to Bravo, “forbidding them from showing the couple’s children on-air.” Furthermore, the letter reads, “Michael “adamantly declines and demands his [children] not be included in the program!”
It goes on that, “he believes it would be detrimental to the children’s well-being to be put on television.” Uh, Michael, it’s a little late for that!
Something is not right with this situation because sources close to Bravo are insisting say that the network’s “execs have not yet received any letter.” A rep for Jules also adds, “this is completely ridiculous. [Michael] would have had to have signed a release when the show started taping last year. Again, this is a waste of time.”
Bethenny and Tamra’s children are not allowed to be on camera and it definitely makes them a bit less entertaining for me; sometimes the kids are my favorite scenes. Yes, I’m talking about you Milania!
It’s unconfirmed if Jules will be back for RHONY season 9, and if she is who knows if Jagger and Rio will be allowed to appear with her; we will have to wait and see!
(For the record, I was not easy to find pictures of Michael with his children-I tried!)
