Jules Wainstein's bitter divorce has become a tragic story line faked by Bravo and she's using every trick in the book to stay relevant to the show. Click through the gallery to find out what the RHONY star is up to for her "story line."
Even though she only clocked one season on The Real Housewives of New York City, Wainstein's drama was worthy of a sneaky Bravo edit RadarOnline.com exclusively learned. According to a production source, much like everything else on the Housewives franchises, Jules' divorce is a "story line that exploded" and producers scrambled to include it in the current season.
"Jules and Michael's divorce was finally interesting so the producers manipulated the scenes to fit into the narrative that he was the scoundrel in the relationship," the source told Radar. He filed for divorce in July and was spotted with their children in the Hamptons on August 7, 2016.
"They were filming things in the last few weeks that weren't part of the original season shot," the production source explained about the network known for fakery.
Radar also learned that Wainstein's salary for the show was drastically lower than the rest of the housewives across the country. "Jules only got about $60,000 to be on the show. It was really low." That paled in comparison to the women in Beverly Hills who got $250,000 for their first season.
Desperate to stay on and to earn more money as her divorce loomed, the source explained that Wainstein was "hoping her divorce will give her a bigger story line and keep her on the show for another season. Bravo seems to really like all of the drama. Her story line exploded."
In another shocking example of her fakery, Radar learned that Wainstein hired a ghostwriter for her Bravo blog. "She doesn't write her stuff herself," the source said. "Please. That isn't how she sounds." Wainstein axed her first ghostwriter and hired a second one halfway through her first season. "She fired the first person and then she hired someone she knows through one of her kids to write it for her."
