World, meet Cindy Barshop. Cindy Barshop, meet the world. This brunette beauty lady is the newest “Real Housewives of New York” cast member.
She runs the Completely Bare chain of day spas in New York, Arizona and Florida.
Rumors started circulating about her being cast on the show a few months ago, but nothing was confirmed until today.
According to the NY Post:
She has an organic connection to the cast,” says Bravo programming VP Christian Barcellos. “She’s friends with Ramona and has connections to Kelly. They all run in the same circles.
And unlike so many other housewives on the hit Bravo franchise:
She’s a very successful, entrepreneurial, self-made woman,” Barcellos says. “She’s the epitome of the go-go New Yorker who lives downtown in an absolutely fabulous West Village loft.
Along with her booming business, Barshop is a single mother of twin baby girls Zoe and Jesse.
She’s replacing fan fave Bethenny Frankel, who left “Housewives” to star in her own Bravo series, “Bethenny Getting Married?” which is coming back for season two.
She brings a distinct flavor to the ensemble,” Barcellos says. “This show is about self-actualized women — and I think viewers will enjoy getting to know and see [Barshop].”
I cant wait!
