Jules Wainstein Signed Post-Nup Before Joining RHONY


During the RHONY reunion, Bethenny Frankel accused Jules Wainstein “going on the show to get divorced,” and a new report reveals that Bethenny’s claim was true.

A source close to Wainstein revealed that it was Jules’ plan to use her divorce as a storyline, explaining, “Bethenny is right!”

The insider told RadarOnline that Jules and Michael knew Bethenny before filming. “Jules and Michael were with Bethenny a few times and that is why she could say that she knew them,” the source explained. “She knew that their marriage wasn’t going to last.”

“Jules and Michael told her about their marriage problems one time at her house before they started taping the show,” said the insider.

“They didn’t blatantly say ‘we are getting divorced for the show,'” the source explained. “Just that they had a pretty good idea that their marriage was having problems. They did talk about it with her, and she knew it was going to happen.”

Michael filed for divorce in June, and the insider explained he took a page out of Kelsey Grammer’s book, distracting Jules with the show. The insider said Michael “wanted to give Jules a platform to make money. For her drink Modern Alkeme, for her to go on tour and talk to students about eating disorders. Anything to give her a source of income after she got divorced.”

The source revealed that Jules and Michael met with attorneys to work out a “post-nup” agreement to get their finances in order in October 2015, before she went on the show. “They knew they were getting a divorce, so they wanted to split things up fairly before the prying eyes of the cameras were on them.”

And they told Bethenny about their agreement. “They told her about their agreement,” the insider noted.

With friends like Bethenny who needs enemies?

I guess I’m confessed. What again was it that B did hat was wrong?

Jules confided in confidence to Bethenny as a friend Bethhenny betrayed her severely by saying what she did about Jules. It was nasty.

Who cares???? I didn’t even finish this. Who cares Bethenny??? What is your point? What is your actual point? Nevermind. I do not care. If jukes though the show would help her out of a bad marriage who tf is bethenny frankel to call her out or judge her? Vindictive b.

There is nothing “REAL” about Jules and Michael. Bethanny may not be the most tactful person but as least she is honest.

Hi Bill, I’m wondering what is bethenny honest about? She doesn’t want her relationship on the show, & her kid and ex are off limits. Apparently so is her business other than obnoxious product placement. I don’t see how ridiculing & calling out others the entire season is passing as “honesty.” She’s a human troll. Just my opinion.

She’s an extremely TOXIC person.

I agree Amy. What more can be said?

She deserves to be circled up in a ball in her closet when she watches herself on this season. I don’t even watch the show anymore. Only watch the commercials and read this blog. She’s a mean terrible ugly person.

Judging by her tweets she seems perfectly pleased with herself, & comfortable calling everyone who feels otherwise “stupid.” Can you imagine the toxicity in person ?? Grateful i don’t have anyone like that in my life. I’d leave the show too like the half dozen others.

OMG… Could you imagine having to deal with her in your real life… Poor Jason.. Says a lot about Carol.

No I can not!!!!

Hate to tell you, they didn’t “leave” they were fired. Bethenny did her Bravo spin off for the 3 years she was gone from RHONY. Who did she argue with or get into it with besides Luann. And, well, of course handling the problem Sonja created. Lets get real, does ANYONE know where ANYONE can get ANYTHING Sonja makes or supposedly sells? This “$10,000.00 bracelet” would have been written about SOMEWHERE if it was true. The people who guest appear in their businesses on RHONY or any franchise don’t do it for fun, they do it for their business. It’s… Read more »

Totally agree DeeDee!


I give her credit for keeping her child off the show. She has per priorities right in that regard. Everyone knows where they stand with Bethanny, she is not 2 faced like most of them. If she says it behind your back she’ll say it to your face as well. I like her.

Me too, Bill. You said it, you always know where you stand. She might be harsh about it, but it is to your face. Unlike Luann or Dorinda. Neither of whom have had to work for anything they have for many, many years.

I agree Bill. Her delivery may be harsh but she cuts to the chase and there it is. Truth is hard for some to take and she has a way of snuffing out the BS. I love her directness, humor and quick wit. Without her on the show it would be so “Ordinary.”

They have 2 children. Thats real.

Besides, Bethenny never said there was anything wrong, in her opinion, with Jules doing that. Bethenny did a spin-off to get married, then spoke at length about the sorrow of divorce on her short lived talk show. She mentioned this herself. It was a rumor that had been around, Jules said that herself. Bethenny didn’t start the rumor. For some reason, this thing about going on the show, post-nups, bla bla bla, has nothing to do with “secrets” told to Bethenny in confidence. In posts it keeps being made to look like the two are the same thing. They are… Read more »

Ah Bitchany, Bitchany, Bitchany…thar SHE BLOWS!

Lots of people have marriage problems but work things out. Bethanny isn’t capable of that kind of love but other people are. Marriage problems don’t always have to lead to a divorce. Bethanny wouldn’t know how to heal a marriage if her life depended on it. She only knows how to attack, humiliate, make herself the judge and authority on everything and everyone. Her new and superior relationship with Dennis Shields will fall apart too.because she’s too messed up to make a relationship work for very long.

I keep reading that Bravo is offering her more than a million to stay on the show..Bravo seems
to think she is the main attraction for this franchise. No No No!!!! You need to get new blood, Bethanny proves the concept that money can’t buy you everything especially class.. she is still crude, obnoxious, and classless!!!!!

I can’t believe she called the daughter of her boyfriend.She’s changed so much it’s sad to see.All those therapy sessions have done a a 180on her personality

I know right?? That was obscene to do such a thing… Surprise factor B.. When your having an affair typically no one knows about it so for her to call her boyfriends daughter to ask if basically they were screwing before he separated from this child’s mother is absurd. She really needs to eat a cheeseburger because her body frames looks like a 12 year old boy and after she does that she might want to go play in traffic with Crooks and Vicki because that’s about the level she has stooped to.

I was so pleased she did that. Big lies call for big responses. If his Daughter didn’t want to back Bethenny up, she simply wouldn’t have answered the phone. We are all adults here. The Daughter isn’t 12, she is a grown woman. Luann wants so, so badly to take some of the filth off of herself and smear it on Bethenny that she resorts to outright lies. She has this autocratic belief in herself, maybe because she once held a title in France. How disrespectful the way she whispered during every single clip that was shown. Speaking to those… Read more »

Just when I think that I couldn’t despise Bitchenny- that is the right spelling, she goes even further to be one of the nastiest people out there.. She needs to stay out of everyone else’s business, but she can’t.. she loves to judge, yell at people, meddle in their business.. She is truly the most mean spirited, unhappy individuals on any of these shows.. She is delusional too.. she doesn’t see how nuts she is.. MAJOR THERAPY needed Bitchenny..

Bethenny is a lot of things, but a liar is not one of them. I don’t know why people are so bent out of shape. Jules was being fake…Bethenny was being real and honest. Who is the real culprit here?

Ditto. 🙂

I agree. I don’t love Bethenny, but she is not lying. She may be a truth cannon, and she is harsh at times, but sometimes the truth hurts. I would rather an honest friend than one who stabs from behind the back and lies, even if the truth hurts.
Clearly, Jules and Michael had a plan, and it is in a way, reminiscent of Kelsey Grammar, wanting his wife to make some of her own money and keep busy while the marriage dissolved. It was all planned.

I agree with you 100%.

Thank you Real Sandy! Bethenny, love her, hate her, whatever. At least she is honest to a fault and this is why people don’t like her. She doesn’t believe in feeding people sugar-coated sh*t by the spoonful. She just shovels it right in and most people can’t deal with this kind of honesty. Jules & Michael are very reminiscent of Kelsey & Camille Grammar. He is just a sneaky little shit that doesn’t want to pay alimony or child support and that is despicable! You bring innocent children into this world and you have to PAY for them. Surely he… Read more »


Was for miss Suze

It’s called “honesty” now to take things your friends tell you in confidence & reveal them to the entire world. Noted.

No but it is called television ratings – it’s what we all watch for

I really do want to know where Bethenny ever said what Jules told her in confidence. Jules herself spread the news she was divorcing before the show aired. As always, there is so much we don’t see. But the things Jules told Bethenny in confidence about her marriage? Where did you see that, because I would really like to see it. For real. I haven’t seen it anywhere, on the show, in the blogs, in the rag mags, in any interview or article quoting Bethenny. Gossip repeated is not the same as something told to her in strict confidence. If… Read more »
Oh 3D, love your comments about Dorinda. She is a real “pot-stirrer” and then sits back and watches the fallout. Jules never told Bethenny anything in CONFIDENCE. Throughout the entire season, she was constantly saying something derrogative about Michael and him always being on the phone. I don’t think that he was THAT important that he should have been getting all that much telephone action. Seems to me that anything Jules told Bethenny was out in the open and on the show, so where does the confidentiality come in???? She is the MOST disconnected mother to her children I have… Read more »
What also bugs me is the way she speaks FOR Sonja and Jules, over them. And , in opposition to what Sonja said about HERSELF! What arrogance. When Jules and Michael were in the car on their way to the Hampton’s, and she was whining about packing for them…..God Almighty. Then Jagger gets an ear ache and she snaps at him, wow. “I can’t do anything about it.” I guess she has no clue what an Urgent Care facility is. Makes me sick. Interviewing that nanny. Not one instruction or word about what was truly important. Like “I only care… Read more »
