How Did Jules & Michael Wainstein Meet? 'The Real Housewives Of New York' Stars Go Way Back
The new season of Real Housewives Of New York has commenced and it's brought with it some fresh, new faces. RHONY star Julianne Wainstein has already made an impression and we are only two episodes into the new season. She and her husband Michael Wainstein live with their two young children, Rio and Jagger, in a gorgeous apartment in the Flatiron District in New York. And, when we first met Jules, she explained the secret of good parenting to us, which is apparently to bribe your children to get them to do what you want. Sounds legit. But, how did Jules and Michael first meet?
These two have a meet cute that everybody would love to have. In her own words in this season's premiere episode, Jules said that she met her husband when she was 24 years old and standing outside of the French bistro in New York City. She spotted Michael pulling up in his car and approached him because she's a confident badass. Next thing she knew, three weeks later they were living together. A quick year and a half after that, they were engaged. Now they have been happily married for eight years. The craziest part of this whole thing was that she actually knew him when she was a kid because it turns out he was a friend of her family. That's either really adorable or a little creepy. I can't decide which one it is, but it's a unique story nonetheless.
This power couple has a pretty amazing life together. They share a love for travel and even though one would assume having two children has probably slowed them down a little bit, their Instagrams show that they still seem to be hitting some pretty amazing spots all over the globe together as a family. According to her Bravo profile, Michael and Jules hope to ignite a love for travel in their children by taking them along on their vacations.
Speaking of their children, theirs are absolutely precious. Jules' social media accounts show a happy, goofy family life. Their kids seem like they are so close, it's certainly a testament to good parenting.
Jules and Michael seem to be happily making it work as a married couple and living a pretty amazing life as a family of four. I'm looking forward to seeing what this couple brings to this season of The Real Housewives Of New York.
