The curse of the housewives continues. It’s not uncommon for ‘wives to get divorced or arrested, and unfortunately for former RHONY Jules Wainstein, she got both!
Jules was a one-season wonder on New York, known mainly for being Asian and Jewish, and of course her very slim frame. While Jules seemed put together (for housewives standards) while on the show after she left her world seemed to crumble.
After her husband was caught having an affair, the two split in a nasty public divorce and now PageSix has reported that Jules was arrested on Sunday for allegedly punching her ex-husband Michael in the face.
According to PageSix: “Boca Raton, Florida, police arrested Jules, 39, for battery and booked her in Palm Beach County’s main detention center around 3:50 p.m. Sunday, according to court documents.”
Jules now shares the (not so enviable) title of being arrested in Palm Beach alongside fellow RHONY stars Tinsley Mortimer and Luanne de Lesseps. Jules even has the mugshot to match:
The argument reportedly started during a custody exchange in a parking lot, as the two met as scheduled to hand off their children. Jules allegedly licked Michael’s car window before heading to the back of the car and damaging it with a baseball bat. Things then escalated from there as Jules then allegedly punched Michael in the face. Unfortunately, it is reported that their children were in the car during this time. Sad.
Michael has filed a protective order against Jules and had his attorney release the following statement, saying:
“This is a serious situation reflecting Ms. Wainstein’s increasingly reckless behavior that unfortunately took place in front of the kids. The children were released to Michael’s custody yesterday and he is most concerned about protecting them.”
As of now, no words from Jules’ rep and no word on what prompted this violent behavior. AllAboutTRH will be following the story for updates so stay tuned!
