That Time Jules Wainstein Hired a Potty Training Consultant on The Real Housewives of New York City
It’s official: Real Housewives stars will spend money on just about everything. And wait a minute, just when you thought Real Housewives could not possibly introduce a story more ridiculous than a dog wedding, Real Housewives of New York City‘s Jules Wainstein steps up to the plate. What has Jules brought to the party? A potty training consultant.
Yes, Jules hired Samantha Allen, a “professional potty training consultant” to not help, but to actually train her 2-year-old daughter Rio to use the toilet. You see, Jules said she potty trained 5-year-old Jagger without the help of a professional and she said he was peeing and pooping everywhere. “That’s why I hired you, to make my life easier,” she told Samantha. At least she’s aware.
According to Jules, she spent $ 2,000 for two days of Samantha’s work, so she was definitely going to get her money’s worth and asked her the proper way to wipe and joked (we hope) about teaching her daughter to light a match after she takes her apparently enormous poops.
“I potty trained Jagger by myself and that was a disaster. Samantha Allen, she’s over 2 grand for two days, but she says after 48 hours, Rio will be trained and I kind of believe her, so I’m going with it,” Jules said.
And before you ask, yes, there is a website where you can read all about Samantha Allen and her potty training pros. Is this the most ridiculous thing a Housewife has ever dropped some dough on? That depends, do you think $ 25,000 for sunglasses is too much? Where for art thou, Dana Wilkey?
Jules’ $ 2,000 potty training scene was the most jaw-dropping moment from this episode of Real Housewives of New York City. Besides Jules telling her daughter to be careful with her vagina because she hurt her own, the ladies ended their tame trip to a casino with some gambling and sad dancing in a lounge, threw an engagement dinner for Luann de Lesseps where Ramona Singer ordered a dozen oysters for herself, Dorinda Medley announced plans for a Hawaiian getaway, Bethenny Frankel jetted off to Aspen with her daughter and Carole Radziwill discussed her future with boyfriend Adam regarding their cookbook project. Speaking of Carole, she actually got Luann an engagement gift, which just tickled our collective heart.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. on Bravo.
