Cindy Barshop may have been fired from The Real Housewives of New York but she is currently shopping around a spin-off Â show centered around her Â spa, Completely Bare! Cindy allegedly invested a ton of money in pop-up shops when she landed on ‘Housewives’ to capitalize on her newÂ notorietyÂ and then they had to shutter their doors after she was fired, but she says they were only temporary shopsÂ anywayÂ and she is not in any financial distress!
AccordingÂ to the NY Post,
Cindy Barshop has shaved plans to expand her Completely Bare hair removal spas after being axed from Bravoâ€™s â€œReal Housewives of New York.â€ Sources say Barshop spent a fortune launching a series of â€œpop-upâ€ spa locations to capitalize on her reality TV stardom. But in the last month, two Manhattan locations have closed, as well as a spa in Beverly Hills and one in Atlanta. Barshop was cut from â€œHousewivesâ€ this season, along with Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon. â€œ[Cindy] made a lot of financial investments into the salon when she signed on for â€˜Housewives,â€™ â€ a source said. â€œBut when she left, she didnâ€™t have the platform.â€ But Barshop told us the closed locations were smaller shops she intended to keep open for a year. And the Rock Center address was shuttered because Equinox took over the spot. â€œThey didnâ€™t close because weâ€™re in financial distress,â€ she told us, adding sheâ€™s planning a 5,000-square-foot, $1.5 million location in Roslyn, LI. And sheâ€™s in talks with networks for a new reality series centered around Completely Bare.
