5 Things About Julia Haart 'My Unorthodox Life' Doesn't Tell You

The two primary things I learned from My Unorthodox Life are: Julia Haart's closet is what dreams are made of and the Elite World Group CEO is a total badass. In just under a decade, Julia went from living a sheltered and conservative life in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community to starting her own line of shoes to becoming the CEO of a major fashion conglomerate. It's a wild, inspiring journey that's not explored nearly enough in the nine episode first season of her new Netflix reality show — which, of course, just left me wanting to know more about Julia Haart's rise to the top.

I suspect part of the reason why the series didn't delve into the CEO's past too much is because all of the juicy details are set to be spilled in her forthcoming memoir, Brazen: My Unorthodox Journey From Long Sleeves to Lingerie (hitting shelves March 8, 2022). But it's also because the series isn't a documentary. If My Unorthodox Life spent too much time dwelling on the past then it wouldn't have time for Robert's journey to find his birth person, Miriam's adventures in dating, or Julia's fabulous Parisian business trip/family vacation (raise your hand if you're still drooling over that fabulous chateau).

My Unorthodox Life is a family affair — although Julia's life would make for a captivating doc all on its own — and so it primarily focuses on the now. But that doesn't mean her past isn't full of fascinating details that would make fabulous TV shows in their own right. Seriously, Netflix, if you're looking for spinoff ideas or new show pitches, any of the following facts about Julia would make for riveting television.
