There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Take notes, Yolanda: this is how you handle an illness on national television…
Well, that's exactly what happened on Wednesday when Jules confided in Queen B that she does in fact suffer from a number of eating disorders!
While on a casual lunch date, Bethenny tried to get to know more about her costar's past when Jules admitted that despite seven years of higher education, she never actually finished college due to being in treatment so often.
Of course, Bethenny slightly soured the moment by making Jules' news about herself and her mom's battle with bulimia… but we're just hoping this means she'll stop talking crap about J in the future.
Plus, we have to give Jules credit for being so open about her issues and for doing what she can to fight the social stigma that comes with anorexia.
Ch-ch-check out Jules' RHONY reveal and subsequent WWHL appearance (below)!!!
