The newest cast member of Bravo’s "Real Housewives of New York" is the owner of a chain of day spas whose clients include "Jersey Shore" cast members Pauly D and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, reports the New York Post.
Cindy Barshop runs the Completely Bare chain of spas, which are located in Manhattan, Palm Beach and Scarsdale, the story notes. She’s a single mother of twin girls who were born last year. She "has made some really bold, daring lifestyle choices," says Bravo programming Vice President Christian Barcellos.
Barshop is replacing Bethenny Frankel, who left the show to appear in her own Bravo reality series, "Bethenny Getting Married?," which will come back for a second season, the story notes.
