While she was the sole housewife on this season of Real Housewives of New York City, Jules Wainstein's marriage has come to an end after eight years.

The reality star's soon-to-be ex-husband, Michael, has filed for divorce, E! News has learned.

"They were having issues before the show but I think pressure from filming clearly put a strain the marriage," an insider tells us before adding, "It brought things to a head."

Meanwhile, a source tells us that despite the rocky times ahead for the newest member of the Bravo hit franchise, "Jules is being strong, she'll be okay."

A separate pal tells E! News that it was Michael who stepped out on the marriage and that "the visibility of the show highlighted the dysfunction in the marriage."

During her big debut on the show, Jules revealed that she met her husband when she was 24-years-old outside of a French bistro in the Big Apple.

After the two dated for three weeks, their whirlwind romance moved to the next level and they moved in together.

Then, after just a year and a half, the duo was engaged. Neither Jules nor Michael have weighed in on the split on social media at this point, however, the last time she shared a photo of Michael and the family was 16 weeks ago.

The exes have two children together, a daughter named Rio and a son named JaggerLife & Style magazine first broke the news.
