All About the Tea_Luann de Lesseps Calls Out Bethenny and Carole

There has been no love lost between Real Housewives of New York’s Jules Wainstein, and bestie duo Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill.

The mean girl pair came at Jules right out of the gate, dissing her home after a brunch invitation, gossiping about her weight, and gasping at Jules’ vulnerable disclosure about her struggle with an eating disorder.

Luann de Lesseps appeared on Sirius XM’s Wake Up with Taylor last week, and weighed in on the criticism Jules received as she navigated her rookie season. Luann pointed out the obvious — that Bethenny and Carole are both skinny girls. Does Luann think that the pair could be projecting their own issues?

“I don’t know if it’s a projection. I think they are waify — there’s no doubt that Bethenny and Carole are skinny as can be. They’re shorter and whatever. And there’s no mistake that Jules says, ‘I have an eating disorder.’ So I think they’re two different things,” Luann said.

Luann noted that Bethenny and Carole had not been kind to Jules from the start, and that picking on her was no way to support someone struggling with a problem.

“I feel that when somebody has a problem, to be picked on is certainly not the way to help them. So I disagree with them dissing her and her weight and kind of not being more aware of it and sympathetic towards her,” Luann commented. “So I didn’t like that. I didn’t like all the picking that went on and then they picked on her house and then they picked on her husband.”

Jules initially connected with Bethenny, until the newbie’s honesty pushed Bethenny into personal discomfort. Bethenny and Carole also insulted Jules’ intelligence in real time on Twitter, in spite of Jules’ earlier objections to the nasty jabs.

Jules spoke about her personal battle during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

“Every day’s a new day. You’re never cured of an eating disorder, but you live with it, and you can live a life with it. It’s really hard to talk about,” Jules said. “You can live with it, and you can live a normal life.” 

Few would call life as a Bravoleb “normal,” but kudos to Jules, for sharing her story in the midst of all the skinny noise.
