Cindy Barshop is closing shop! The one-season former Real Housewives of New York fan failure is apparently undergoing some serious financial strain since losing her position on the popular reality show. You know what they say – don’t count your chickens before they hatch!

The New York Post is reporting that the vajayjay wax diva at the helm of Completely Bare Spas and creator of the vajewel (ew) blew a ton of money opening “pop-up” salons around the country banking their success on her celebrity status as a Housewife. But as you know her run on the show didn’t pan out so well! Following her firing Cindy has been forced to close four of her new Completely Bare locations: two in Manhattan, one in Atlanta, and another in Beverly Hills due to financial strain. Interesting that all of those locales coincide with current Housewives franchises.

“[Cindy] made a lot of financial investments into the salon when she signed on for ‘Housewives,’ ” a source reveals. “But when she left, she didn’t have the platform.” Additionally, the gossip snoopers at The Dirty are claiming Cindy erroneously banked on a friendship with fellow-firee Jill Zarin to keep her on the show “for years to come.”

According to their sources Cindy used her first Bravo paycheck as “collateral” to open five more salons across the country, four of which are now shutting their doors. Indeed Completely Bare’s website confirms there are only two remaining spa locations. Cindy’s storyline on RHONY was supposed to focus on expanding her business nationwide, but it never received much airtime due to all the other drama occurring.

The Dirty also reveals that Completely Bare’s Beverly Hills locale was “shut down by the building owner after she didn’t pay rent for 3 months.” Cindy shared that office building with Dr. Ray 90210, by the way. She also lost two of her NYC spaces when she was evicted her for failure to pay rent. And allegedly her 5th avenue supplier is refusing further deliveries because she owes them $7,000.

Cindy’s employees are claiming her financial issues are so dire some of them do not even receive full paychecks because their wages are too high for the current “budget.” If you recall Cindy is also being sued by a former employee who claims she was unfairly compensated because of her race.

It seems Cindy is very in over her head; the single mom of twins admitted on RHONY that she employed around 14 personal staff to help manage her household, children, and personal needs. Perhaps Cindy needs to trim the bush… (Which is my cheap euphemism for “trim the fat”)

Well Cindy is calling foul on the gossip and denying rumors of financial disrepair. She claims the closed locations were never intended to be open for more than a year. Explaining the location of one of her NY salons was taken over by Equinox gym. “They didn’t close because we’re in financial distress,” she told the NY Post. In fact the waxtress is in the process of opening a 5,000-square-foot, $1.5 million salon in Roslyn, Long Island.

Cindy reveals things are going so well for her that she is developing her own reality show! Cindy is reportedly “in talks” with networks for a new show that centers around her Completely Bare spa. The Dirty claims the show is being personally funded with money she doesn’t have as a “last-ditch” effort to save her empire which melting faster than hot wax! So… yeah, a show about waxing crotches… I predict some high ratings there!

THOUGHTS ON CINDY’S PREDICAMENT? ARE YOU SURPISED? DO YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN WATCHING CINDY’S NEW REALITY SHOW?


After some time off from Survivor, given last week’s “highlight reel,” we resumed last night with just as much drama and backstabbing as you’d find at a middle school girl’s cafeteria table.

The Te Tuna (mainly Coach) returns to camp ecstatic that the Savaii has been picked off one by one. Cochran is thankful for being adopted into the former Upolu tribe. He’s aware he is the seventh in a seemingly six strong alliance, but I’m certainly not counting him out seeing as he’s gotten this far.

Cochran is trying to solidify his place in the group by telling stories of his youth when he would prank call girls discussing sperm. Sophie is starting to think that maybe he’s not such a victim because he is proud of making such a bold move in the game. While Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants prays over the group, Cochran compares his new “family” to the Mansons. He calls them together to remind them of his sacrifice and he hopes that, with his birthday nearing, they will spare him now that it’s all about voting off their own. Coach wants to keep Cochran, but Sophie is keeping her loyalty to Edna.

The infamous Anna Benson continues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!

TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1’s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.

Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.

ANNA BENSON CLAIMS BASEBALL WIVES ARE CLASSIER THAN BASKETBALL WIVES!

Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.

TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!

Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.

Divorce? What divorce? NBA player Kris Humphries would rather pretend his marriage to wife of 72 days, Kim Kardashian, never happened.

Today, Kris, 26, finally responded to Kim’s divorce filing by seeking an annulment from her. Kris wants to erase his quickie marriage on the grounds that Kim defrauded him into marrying her.

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ that Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, a.k.a. he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show. The insiders reveal while Kris wanted and thought he had a genuine marriage, Kim was never really on board.

TMZ adds that this divorce is quickly getting nasty because Kris also wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.

Kim is, however, not wasting any time firing back at Kris, with Kim herself “sources” close to her insisting to TMZ that she really loved Kris and the marriage was legit, despite falling apart in just 72 days.

Kim is telling others she originally wanted an annulment and filed for divorce after being told it was her only legal option. Kim is also claiming Kris and her discussed annulling the marriage before she filed for divorce, but were advised there was no legitimate grounds for an annulment.

KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN ANNOUNCES SHE IS 9 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY NO. 2!

TMZ states that under California law, annulments are only granted with proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud. Kris’s papers state that in the case he’s denied an annulment, he wants a legal separation – and not a divorce. However, some legal experts are stating it will be very difficult for Kris to prove fraud in court.

I have to wonder if Kris’ annulment filing had anything to do with the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. In a review I wrote before the show aired, I stated that Kris seemed to truly love his wife, appearing like lovesick puppy, while Kimmie seemed pretty much over the marriage. She was quick to get angry with him and seemed more concerned with creating good TV drama by agreeing to move in with her sister Kourtney and her family.

Meanwhile, sources close to Kris tell the HollywoodLife blog that a reconciliation with Kim is completely out of the question. “Kris is no longer heartbroken and he’s ready to move on,” reveals the source. “His main focus is basketball and he has been hustling for contract opportunities.”

Kris is now reportedly “trying to show teams he’s no longer associated with the Kardashians, so they aren’t influenced negatively by his outside issues.”

And finally, just moments ago, E! tweeted a photo of Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom on a set filming promos for the second season of their show — Khloe & Lamar.

So folks, it appears immediately following this season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, we will get season two of Khloe and Lamar, and then the 125th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which is currently filming at the moment. Le sigh. These people are never going away are they? The behind-the-scenes photo is below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?


Like it or not, there will be a second season of the Real Housewives of Miami!

Even better, Adriana De Moura confirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!

So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.

“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’

MARYSOL PATTON EXPLAINS WHY THE FIRST SEASON FLOPPED!

Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.

“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!

With filming set to begin in about six weeks, Adriana states she alongside Marysol Patton (Yay for Mama Elsa!), Alexia Echevarria and Lea Black will be returning.

Larsa’s departure is not much of a surprise as she reportedly moved back to Chicago with her husband Scottie Pippen and their family earlier this year.

It’s pretty much a fact that Kate Gosselin will do anything to get attention from the media and capture the limelight again. But is she really so desperate for some attention she’d get a facelift? It sure looks like it!

After some shocking photos surfaced of the CouponCabin.com blogger at work looking a little errrr… changed, the media instantly started suspecting that Kate, who is no stranger to plastic surgery, may have done something to her face. Well, of course she is denying it all while rushing to the nearest TV camera to give an interview about how she hasn’t done a thing, nope nothing at all!

“I mean, honestly – I’m 36! No, I have not had a facelift,” she insisted. “People have too much time on their hands.” Speaking to Access Hollywood Live, Kate relished in her new-found attention! “Honestly, I feel like it should go away and the rumors just keep getting more and more ridiculous,” she said of the media’s coverage of her life. “I’m busy raising my kids and working and I honestly laughed at the facelift thing because I don’t know any 36 year olds who have had a facelifts – or need one.”

Kate chalks up her tightened new appearance to training for the upcoming Rock n Roll Marathon in Las Vegas. “I’m running a marathon on Sunday – I’m running a lot of miles. Obviously your body is going to change and you lose a lot of weight. I’m guessing that’s what people are noticing,” Kate insisted. “My hair was parted differently? Different makeup artist that day?” I dunno… something looks off… definitely tightened up!

As for how she is coping following the cancellation of Kate Plus 8, Kate admits it’s hard! “There’s definitely something missing in our lives and we miss the people that were behind the cameras,” she reveals. “From a mom aspect, I miss being able to show my kids the world and do all of those adventures and I think that I miss the most convenient job in the whole wide world – to get paid when someone’s coming in recording your home videos is still a dream come true and it worked that way.”

Even though Kate wants a career in TV she will definitely not be sharing the spotlight with ex-husband Jon Gosselin anytime soon — no matter how much money was on the table! “I’ll never film another frame of TV with Jon again,” she snapped.

“You could offer me every last dollar on the planet. I don’t work for money. Jon lives his own life now and I have a lot of peace in my life for me and the kids so I’d have to say no, I cannot compromise my morals and standards to get paid a ridiculous amount of money,” Kate stated emphatically. “I don’t feel like it’s healthy or beneficial for my kids to watch so there’s no point.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KATE’S FACE? PLASTIC SURGERY OR NO? ARE YOU SURPRISED KATE IS UNWILLING TO FILM WITH JON EVER AGAIN?


Let’s go ahead and add another minute to the Kardashians’ original fifteen as Kourtney Kardashian is now pregnant with baby No. 2!

Kourtney confirmed the news to UsWeekly that she is indeed expecting a second child with baby daddy Scott Disick. But that’s not the shocker folks! What is it you ask? Well, Kourt is announcing the news to the world while just 9 weeks along!

“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kourtney tells UsWeekly. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” Well feeling confident and also announcing the news to deflect from her little sister, Kimmie Kardashian’s divorce backlash! Those crafty Kardashians! Always so transparent.

Kourtney, 32, reveals she took the pregnancy test about five weeks ago and woke up Scott, 28 (apparently is not a morning person), around 7.a.m. to tell him the good news.

KRIS JENNER REVEALS DETAILS OF STEAMY AFFAIR!

So was baby #2 planned for the unwed couple? Or was the news a surprise? “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying,” says Scott. “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.'” Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason turns 2 in December.

This pregnancy news is even more surprising as the couple can be seen on the second of Kourtney and Kim Takes New York supposedly having major problems in their relationship. The series, which was just taped in September and October, depicts the two sleeping in separate bedrooms and being at each other’s throats.

A source, however, tells the HollywoodLife blog the obvious — which is that their storyline is all scripted for the show. “It’s funny because Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is actually pretty strong,” a source close to the couple reveals. “As the new season continues, they will have their moments ‘for the cameras,’ but it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors.” Oh you don’t say! Makes you wonder how much of the upcoming Kris Humphries is a total jerk storyline was also scripted for the cameras.

In the meantime, we can all await the new E! special Kourtney’s Fairytale Wedding Delivery any minute now! You know it’s coming!

TELL US – THOUGHTS?

Reunited and it feels so….. Hot! Part one of the first ever (and probably last ever) Millionaire Matchmaker reunion aired last night, and not only did the beloved Andy Cohen put Patti in the hot seat, but he reunited some of Patti’s most memorable clients from the past five seasons. All the clients and Patti were looking hot, hot, hot! The heat continued as Andy dived into the whole WWHL fiasco.

In case you forgot, Patti Stanger said some unfortunate comments on her appearance earlier this year on Andy’s late-night show. She claimed gays cannot commit, and Jewish men lie. Well, doesn’t she realize her boss is both of those? In order to save her job, Patti backpedals claiming she could not sleep for days (or eat?) after she offended so many people. She does major damage control telling Andy it was her idea to even set up gays on TV — no credit to Andy Cohen? Andy, not quick to let off the heat, calls her out saying she makes generalizations a.k.a. stereotypes! Let’s not sugar coat it, but Patti continues on her self-reflection stating she wants to soften up her image. Good luck with that.
