Jules Wainstein, the newest cast member of The Real Housewives of New York, is revealing how heartbreaking it is to watch the current episodes in light of her pending divorce from cheating husband, Michael; but says she has the “strength to get through anything.”
“Being raised in an unconditionally loving environment has given me the grounding and strength to get through anything…even the heartbreak of divorce,” Jules wrote on her Bravo blog.
“My heart breaks all over again watching the show now and listening to Jagger crying on the phone,” Jules continued. “I tried to brush it off in front of my parents, because I didn’t want them to be concerned, especially with my dad having just recently returned home from the hospital, but I broke down the minute I was alone.”
Fans have witnessed many red flags leading up to the demise of the Wainstein marriage, but when Michael didn’t come home to Jagger (5) and Rio (3) during the Miami girls’ trip, leaving the kids in the care of a nanny, instead of being a parent, it was a concern to many when Jagger cried to his mom on the phone.
“Mom, can you call daddy and tell him to come home?” Jagger begged through tears.
Jules reassured him that she’d have Michael come home, though viewers never saw that phone call. We now know the truth of the constant showers and late nights once Michael filed for divorce on July 15, wasting no time being man-about-town with his new mistress, Elyse Bensusan.
