Julianne Wainstein The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Former RHONY Star Jules Wainstein Opens Up About her Eating Disorder – Says Costars ‘Didn’t Understand’ It

Jules Wainstein may no longer be a housewife but that doesn’t mean she’s not done speaking about her time on the hit show.

In a new segment by People Magazine titled ‘Life After Bravo’ Jules got deep regarding her serious issue and how she dealt with it while being in the spotlight. Per Jules:

“Eating disorders are a very secretive disease. I thought it’d be really healthy and a big part of my recovery if I did speak about it. I always say, secrets kept you sick.”

While Jules doesn’t regret talking about it and opening up, she does admit that her co-stars didn’t quite understand it as she added:

“I feel like the girls on the show didn’t understand that. They were giving me a hard time. They were like, “[Gasp] You’re so sick!’ I’m like, ‘No! That’s so amazing of me to tell you that, because someone who is sick won’t tell you that because they’re sick.’”

Take a look at Jules’ interview on ‘Life After Bravo’ and let us know what you think:

I’ve always liked Jules and wish that she had more than one season as it takes a few seasons for a housewife to open up. Apparently Jules agrees as she added: “If I did a second season, maybe people would have understood my recovery better.”

Thoughts on Jules opening up? Would you want to see her return to RHONY? Do you think she was misunderstood?
