She's bold, she's daring and she's officially a Real Housewife of New York.
Following the initial announcement in September, Bravo has released a statement confirming that spa owner Cindy Barshop is taking over for Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York.
Said Bravo programming VP Christian Barcellos to The New York Post:
"She's the epitome of the go-go New Yorker who lives downtown in an absolutely fabulous West Village loft. She has made some really bold, daring lifestyle choices [that] are really cool and laudable and hopefully will invite watercooler conversations.
"She's done some unorthodox things, and she owns it.. She brings a distinct flavor to the ensemble."
Are you excited, Housewives fans, for the addition of Barshop?
