Cindy Barshop, founder and owner of Completely Bare, a successful chain of day spas specializing in hair removal, is joining The Real Housewives of New York City.
We actually did a story on her years ago because she's Paris Hilton's bikini waxer. Who knew? To think, only she and a few dozen guys have seen Paris like that.
Anyway. With three locations in Manhattan, plus branches in Palm Beach, Fla. and Scarsdale, N.Y., Cindy Barshop's empire is self-made, and extremely successful.
But it's not all business for her. She's also single mom to twin girls Zoe and Jesse, born in 2009. Adds a source close to the new star: "She's funny and very nice!"
Her casting on The Real Housewives of NYC was confirmed by Us, although the identity of the new housewife has been a carefully-guarded secret all summer.
"We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself," Ramona Singer said. "Not to say I'm not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her."
Barshop replaces the newly-departed Bethenny Frankel. Ramona, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan round out the cast.
