Jules Wainstein on Her Divorce

A lot has happened in Jules Wainstein's life since we last saw her in the Bravo Clubhouse. The Real Housewives of New York City newbie announced her plans to divorce her husband Michael Wainstein in June.

So during Jules' return to Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night, she updated Andy Cohen on many details of her divorce, confirming that she and Michael are still living together and that they are currently in the process of getting divorced (clip above).

However, when Andy asked if Jules knew Michael's alleged mistress, she paused. "I can say that’s true," Jules' longtime friend Dorinda Medley chimed in. "It's all right, Jules." 

Jules then said that she "never" suspected Michael had been unfaithful to her, which Dorinda backed up. "We're very close, so we would have had one of these late-night conversations where she says, like — 'cause we've all done it — 'Oh my God, I think X, Y, Z.' I mean, I've done it when I've been completely wrong," Dorinda told Andy. "So you never had that conversation with me." 

Though Bethenny Frankel previously said on WWHL that she knew about Jules' impending divorce before this season of RHONY started filming, Jules said she doesn't see how that's possible. "Because we have a 'mutual friend.' We have no mutual friends," she shot back.

Bethenny’s Advice for Jules’ Divorce

Dorinda didn't seem to buy it, either. "Bethenny seems to have a mutual friend for all of us everywhere in the world," she said on WWHL, which sounded like a dig relating to the intel the Skinnygirl mogul said she has on Luann de Lesseps' fiancé on Wednesday night's episode of RHONY. "I think she can see dead people as well."

This Could Mean the Wedding Is Off

"Yeah, she knows everything," Jules said sarcastically. 

Bethenny responded to Jules' comments on WWHL on Twitter Wednesday night, seeming to suggest that the tense moment Jules shared with her husband while talking to him on the phone during the latest episode of RHONY "is confirmation" that she may not have been 100 percent trusting of him.


She reminded the ladies that she does "know it all," referencing her heated exchange with Heather Thomson in Turks and Caicos last season of RHONY.


Bethenny also hinted that there may be even more truth bombs to come. "There is so much more that I know. These two know who and what I'm talking about so let them keep going," she tweeted. "There will be a stop. Trust."


Will the truth come out later this season on RHONY? Tune in on Wednesday, August 17 at 9/8c to find out.
