Meet Cindy Barshop, New Real Housewife of NY?

By: / September 20, 2010

There may finally be an answer to the burning question of which feisty middle-aged lady will replace Bethenny Frankel on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York.

According to Us Weekly, Frankel’s departure has paved the way for spa owner Cindy Barshop to join the cast in season four. Just who is this Ms. Barshop? She’s a single mom of infant twins who runs Completely Bare, a spa specializing in hair removal with outposts in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida.

In an online beauty survey, Barshop revealed she tends to famous clients like Kimora Lee Simmons and lists online poker and cupcakes as her vices. Hmm, she sounds kind of… normal!

Though Bravo has yet to comment, fellow housewife Ramona Singer told Us there is a new castmember who is both “funny” and “very nice.”
