Jules Wainstein: I Was Excited to Meet the Infamous Bethenny

What Does Jules Wainstein Think of the Other ‘Wives?

After all these months, I can't believe that the first episode would "come so quickly!" As you can imagine, I'm filled with excitement, worry, bewilderment and a real sense of curiosity to how this is all going to work out. Filming this has been a real experience. It's been a time for me to explore new things, friends, embrace challenges and reflect on life. Let the journey begin...

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Part of the excitement from joining the show is meeting this new group of wonderful women. Dorinda introduced me to the group, but I've also known Ramona for a few years. It's true I also met Bethenny at her Cinco de Mayo party, which by the way, I'd like to give a shout out to all my "Upper East Side Jewishy" girlfriends! I don't know what that looks like, but it probably looks like a Chanel bag, so let's take that as a compliment ladies, LOL. I was excited to meet the infamous Bethenny. We have similar friends, kids the same age, and I thought out of this group of girls we had the most in common. I'm not gonna lie, I was kind of caught off guard watching the brunch at Catch, because usually when I meet someone for the first time I like to get to know them. It seems like Bethenny likes to figure out which label fits best...not just with me but clearly with Dorinda, as well, and I feel this may be a reoccurring theme. Anyways, if I remind her of her mother and she is anything like my mom--gorgeous, smart and put together--I'll take it! 

John and Dorinda get a lot of flack. I feel that if my friends are happy, I'm happy for them. At the end of the day it's none of my business, but Dorinda is a grown woman, and if she's happy and having fun, then she deserves to be. John is a sensitive guy. We should all be so lucky to celebrate our relationships monthly. The only reminder I get is the headache Michael gives me for my credit card bill! Haha oopsies...

FINALLY everyone gets to meet the Wainstein family. I have to say Zoé's cameo (our family dog) was amazing... all of that hair and makeup did the trick! Parenting is challenging, and you gotta have some humor while doing it. It's tough, but I enjoy every moment being with my children and hope to be the best mom I can be. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

I have to say this season is really gonna knock your socks off! Even I'm excited to sit and watch, and I already know what happens!

Thank you for letting me be a part of this amazing show and sharing this ride with you.
