One of the personalities featured on Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise is off the series after just one season. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Julianne Wainstein has left “Real Housewives of New York City.”
The move comes amid a lot of off-screen drama for Wainstein.
The Post cites a rep for Jules saying she’s leaving the show to deal with her personal life, which currently includes a nasty divorce.
“Her divorce just got even messier, with her estranged hubby demanding that $200 in weekly grocery money be given to the nanny instead of Jules,” The Post reports. “Michael Wainstein’s lawyer suggested in court Thursday that Jules wasn’t providing her kids with adequate meals.”
Justice Michael Katz sided with Jules on the grocery money issue, but suggested that Jules keep the receipts in case Michael challenges her use of the funds, the report notes. Katz also ordered Michael Wainstein to pay Jules $10,000 by Sept. 30 and another $10,000 by Oct. 28.
“Michael sat in front of the judge, shaking his head,” The Post reports. “The parties also agreed to live separately at their East 19th Street townhouse during the divorce, with Michael taking the second floor and Jules staying in the third and fourth floors with their kids. The bitter split prompted Jules to announce she won’t be returning to the Bravo reality TV series next season.”
