Jules Wainstein joined The Real Housewives of New York this season because her friend, Dorinda Medley, was filming the show. She thought it would be a fun thing to try out, especially since she was launching her own health drink, Modern Alkeme. But Wainstein may not have thought that she would end up arguing with Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York and defending everything that she stands for. For a while, her co-stars have been trying to figure out why these two don’t get along, and Dorinda Medley had a theory during the reunion; Jules Wainstein’s age.
As it turns out, there’s a huge age difference between Frankel and Jules. And it sounds like they live very different lives, even though Bethenny has also gone through an ugly divorce. According to a new tweet, Jules Wainstein spent the weekend with her family and friends, celebrating Shabbat. It’s no secret that she’s an Orthodox Jew.

“The Silver Fox’s n the Chicken Coop! DAD’s in NYC! Nothing better than Friends & Family #ShabbatShalom #Family #RHONY,” Jules Wainstein tweeted over the weekend, revealing that she was spending time with her family and friends, as she celebrated Shabbat.
Jules is 35 years old, which is 10 years younger than Bethenny, according to PEOPLE magazine. When Frankel first joined The Real Housewives of New York, she was also in her mid-30s. She revealed back then that she didn’t always have enough money to pay rent in her New York apartment and she struggled to make a cookie business a success. She worked as a personal chef for rich people in the Hamptons, and she once sold scarfs on the street to make enough money to get by. One could argue that Jules is in a better place in her mid-30s than Frankel was herself.

One of the arguments during the reunion was also the lack of money that Jules Wainstein may have now that she’s getting divorced. But Wainstein decided to tackle this argument on Twitter, revealing that money isn’t necessarily a big issue for her, even though Frankel’s million-dollar business is important for her.

“Bethenny, you have no moral authority! No matter where or whether I have a penny to my name I celebrate Shabbat! #shameonu,” Jules Wainstein tweeted as the reunion special aired, slamming her co-star for her harsh comments.

These days, Wainstein is trying to move on from her divorce, as her husband Michael cheated on her. She’s focusing on her two children, Jagger and Rio, who are spending lots of time with her. She even mocked her marriage to Michael by tweeting that their marriage was a mistake.
“FOR SALE: WEDDING DRESS. Worn Once By Mistake. Call Me. #RHONY,” Jules joked on Twitter recently.
It’s no secret that Jules Wainstein and Bethenny are two very different people, and their ages could be what is causing friction between them. If Frankel had gotten married in her mid-30s, she might be in the same situation as Jules with two children, a thriving business, and a possible divorce. Despite Jules Wainstein’s age, she just wants to have fun, even though the ladies are a bit older than she is.

“I like positive energy, and to me that’s not just a phrase or emoticon. I like when people around me are happy and having fun, and I do my best to bring a lightness of being and a good vibe to the table,” Jules Wainstein wrote in her Bravo blog about her Real Housewives of New Yorkco-stars.
“After the dinner at Joanne’s and the uncomfortable bus ride I just wanted to relax and have some fun and make the most of the weekend at Mohegan Sun. I’m not the type to hold grudges or let my personal feelings ruin a trip for everyone around me. Well karma didn’t fail me, and I was on fire at the blackjack table! Even Carole stayed out without Bethenny to hang out with me and Lady Luck,” Wainstein added about a trip to Atlantic City.
