On this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel, Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill and Ramona Singer met Jules Wainstein for a cooking class. The ladies basically put toppings on pizza, but things got awkward when Jules joked about putting pills on her pizza. We found out Jules takes Adderall regularly, but had also been recently prescribed Percocet and Lidocaine for an injury.
Jules was seated next to Carole and told her all about how she sees a therapist twice a week, but that they have nothing to talk about anymore because she no longer has an eating disorder. She even shared that she now weighs 115lbs.
When the calzone was ready, Jules revealed she had prepared it and told the ladies to dig in. “Unless I took LSD, there was a fork, a knife and a stainless steel cup inside the calzone,” Bethenny explained. Jules thought it was a hilarious joke, but the other ladies just thought it was weird.
Next, Dorinda stopped by Jules’ place to catch up and Wainstein confided in her friend about her martial problems. Jules told Dorinda that she once called Michael “100 times,” but he wasn’t answering his phone. She then revealed that Michael took nearly six hours to show up at the hospital, which Dorinda said was inexcusable.
“You’re not feeling valued,” Dorinda advised, prompting Jules to add that when she’d returned home from the hospital, she got to work making dinner for the kids, prepping lunches and cleaning up, and just as she was about to sit down to dinner, Michael asked her if she was going to give the kids a bath (because he didn’t know how). Dorinda tried to console Jules by explaining that men think women are “superhuman” and can do it all, but confessed to the camera that she felt Jules’ “loneliness.”
“I wish Michael would step up to the plate a little bit. It would be nice if I had a partner,” Jules told the cameras.
Meanwhile, Bethenny’s impending surgery to remove her fibroids had her very emotional. The doctor told her she would be in the hospital for three full days and her recovery would be six weeks. She also was asked if she had a living will, which really freaked her out.
“I don’t want to be dealing with this right now,” she said, adding how she didn’t know what happen to her daughter Bryn if something went wrong in surgery. “I don’t want to be thinking about this.”
While at a gathering with some of the women, Ramona pulled LuAnn aside and encouraged her to make up with Bethenny and Carole, but LuAnn said she didn’t care and that she was more focused on getting engaged and being in love.
“I love you, but I’m done,” Lu said before storming off and then declaring that Carole would not be invited to her wedding. “Sonja is invited,” Luann added. “To hell with the rest of those bitches!”
