Jules Wainstein is opening up about her time on The Real Housewives of New York City! Jules was on season 8 of the RHONY, which was back in 2016.
Jules recently opened up to Bravo TV about how she got cast on the RHONY and how she met certain castmates. According to Jules, some of the ladies welcomed her with open arms, while others weren’t so welcoming. Jules shared, “I met [Dorinda Medley] at a wedding. I complimented her on her ring and it was like love at first sight. We’ve known each other for almost 10 years. So I got cast on Real Housewives and it was really cool.” However; her husband, Michael Wainstein, was hesitant about her joining the show and gave her “a hard time” at first.
Jules explained, “There was always hesitation. I mean, it’s nerve-wracking to be on television. But if you don’t take a risk, I feel like you’ll never be successful.”
Before Jules officially joined the cast, she said she also knew Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel because she shared mutual friends with both of them. Jules said, “Ramona, I actually happened to become friendly with before the show started that summer in The Hamptons. We hung out a bunch. We had a common gay best friend. And Bethenny, we had a mutual friend, too.”
Jules feels that Bethenny was nice to her off-camera, but not so nice on-camera. Jules explained, “Bethenny wasn’t as welcoming. But in the beginning, she was. Off-camera, we hung out at her apartment and other places and she was awesome and we really got along and I was so happy. I thought she was so cool. I don’t think anything bad about her. I just think her and I didn’t click towards the end of the show because I didn’t agree with the way she treated people.”
As seen on the show, Jules often mentioned that she was Asian and Jewish. The RHONY castmates talked about it on the series. After watching it back, it made Jules cringe, too. Jules joked, “I never say it anymore. Ever.”
