Socialite and reality TV star Jules Wainstein probably peaked as far as fame goes in 2016 when she was a part of main cast on The Real Housewives of New York City‘s eight season. Overall this was a pretty tumultuous year for her, as she also announced her divorce which was not by the way still finalized. Jules Wainstein’s net worth is estimated to be about $1.6 million as of 2020. Check out also the how rich are other RHONY stars like Michael Wainstein, Leah McSweeney, and Elyse Slaine.
Julliane was born February 13, 1981 in Hong Kong (that makes her current age 39 years). Her father was a successful fashion designer and because of his work her family traveled a lot. It also inspired young Jules when she was choosing school. She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
After that, Jules worked for a boutique fashion company as one of their assistant buyers. After marrying and having kids, Wainstein focused more on being a stay at home mom but she also became more active as a socialite.
2016 was a breakthrough year or her on many fronts. She joined the cast of RHONY and became way more famous thanks to it. As an entrepreneur, Wainstein founded company Modern Alkeme that is selling a detox drink called Modern Alkeme Clearing Tonic. But she also filed for divorce that year, which brings us to her family.
Jules married her husband Michael in 2008. She gave birth to their two children, Rio and Jagger. They are three years apart. The marriage lasted without bigger problems until 2016. Almost as if becoming part of RHONY put an additional strain on their relationship but it could have been also a coincidence.
Although the couple is now living together anymore, the divorce was not yet formally finalized. But they share custody of the kids and her husband was ordered to a child support payments of $10 thousand per month. During the following nasty legal battle, Michael accused her of squandering the money and asked court to lower support payments to $2,500 monthly.
