THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, when Cindy Barshop got cast as the newest member of Real Housewives of New York, she was riding on her relationship with Jill Zarin to keep her on the show for years to come. She became greedy for fame, and as soon as she received her first paycheck from Bravo, she decided to use that money as collateral for loans to open 5 more of her Completely Bare Spas in various cities across the country. Well, both her and Jill got the boot and now Cindy will NOT be receiving more paychecks from Bravo. Therefore, Ms. Barshop has defaulted on her loans and has closed down 4 of those 5 Spas. All were open for less than a year. Her Beverly Hills Spa was shut down by building owner (who also shares office spaces with Dr. Ray 90210) after she didn’t pay rent for 3months. 2 locations in NYC (owned by LA Sports Club-soon to be Equinox) also kicked her out of their buildings after she didn’t pay rent. Currently, the 5th Avenue spa supplier will not even deliver supplies b/c she owes them $7,000. The employees there say things have turned for the worse, and some cannot even receive the full amount of their paychecks b/c they are too high for the “budget”. So what now? In a last ditch effort to save her Spas (and get MORE fame) Cindy has decided to create her OWN Reality Show that follows her and her team of waxers as they face the challenging task of removing body hair. She is funding the show with money she doesn’t even have, when she SHOULD be paying her bills! She can’t afford spa supplies or to pay her employees, yet she can pay a camera man named Justin to try and make her famous?
Talk about desperate. Cindy cut your loses before you embarrass yourself even more.- nik
