Mirror, Mirror on the wall. . .
Seeing myself on TV for the first time this season was overwhelming but it absolutely made me realize me for who I am. I realized a lot of characteristics about myself that I didn't necessarily see day-to-day which leads me to thank everyone for this opportunity to be a Real Housewife of New York City. I was able to expand on the classic definition of “housewife” and show everyone my story, from being a single mom and having my beautiful twin girls, Jesse and Zoe, managing and expanding my business, completely bare, and introducing myself to a new group of friends and/or frenemies.
More importantly, I wanted to say how amazed I am by all of my fans and followers. Without your constant support (#TeamCindy) and loving words I couldn't have done it without you!
But wait! It might have been the reunion but I am still ready and waiting for all of your questions and thoughts through my Facebook and Twitter @CindyBarshop!
Cindy: You so remind me of Patti Smith and I say that as the highest form of flattery- Keep it up and keep up the edge
You did great your first season Cindy. Stay close to Jill, Luann and Kelly. They are real the others fake.
Cindy, I think you have some wonderful qualities, but for some reason you jumped to a team, believed everything they told you and ran with it. Alex was nothing but kind to you all season and you never gave her or any of the blondes a chance. I would have stayed in the middle as a new comer. But let's see where it all leads. I liked that you admitted you saw things you did not know about yourself. I am sure we would all feel the same way, but you were generous enough to share that with us. Good luck to you and your sweet girls.
You were by far my favorite this season. You didn't seem to get caught up in the petty nonsense the rest of them did. BRAVO give Cindy her own show!
I hope you come back next year. I like the way you shoot from the hip. Maybe some of the girls will let you complete a full sentence. I like what you have to say. I am so glad that you called Ramona on her state of sobriety at your party. Please come back.
Cindy, the other ladied, I mean women, never gave you a chance. You are up here and they are down here. Not the way Kelly meant it.
Cindy! Your are a breath of fresh air on RHONY! You were true to yourself and didn't take any crap from anyone! I love that about you! Hope to see you next season!
Cindy, I think you are fabulous! You always look so chic and do a great job of balancing motherhood with a successful career. However, you should bail on this train wreck as soon as possible and pitch your own series!!
Cindy I love watching you on the housewives you were one of my favorites.
I felt bad for you on part two of the reunion because no one allowed you to speak!! I think every time they ask a question everyone should have a chance to answer before they move onto another question.
I didn't think you were wrong answering a business call while at Sonja's I think she completely over reacted. I hope to see you on the next season
The reunion was too tiring to watch . .. everyone talking over everyone else! Just skip them from now on unless the blondes get serious lessons on how to act like an adult! Enjoyed meeting you this season, but I really don't understand why you would waste your time and energy on Alex, Ramona, and Sonja. Have a great summer!
It was refreshing to watch Cindy not squawking over everyone in the room and actually being mannerly as the overbearing Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord babbled nonsense throughout the RHONY reunion. I hope she comes back next year and continues to put Alex and Sonja in their respective places.
You were the one character I found truly real this season. IF you choose to return next year, please keep on keeping it real.
Cindy, everyone knows that you are a very strong and powerful business women and you have the life that you always dreamed of, but honey, CHILL OUT! Stop taking yourself so seriously!
Cindy I think you are a wonderful hardworking mother. And I glad that you stand up for yourself and your family!!
For a rookie, you did a terrific job. In this group their are too many competing for attention. You invited the women to your business to share your expertise and the countryside party with horses was terrific. I hope you come back but if you don't I understand.
I like in the season that you do not go over board wth the drama. I do think that you need to reevaluate the way you behave on a personal level with people. It was understandable why you did not act respectful to Sonja at her breakfast but youy should own up that your behavior was not right!!! YOu are like the other housewives self righteous so stop acting like your the only one who is down to earth that is not the case. Oh and darling, 11am is not they afternoon it is exceptable to have brunch at that time, once in a while with friends or family. I guess you live by McDonalds standards about breakfast ending at 10:30!
Get out while you're still a nice, normal person. New York has gone from being my favorite city to being one I can't even watch any more. Don't let them drag you into their craziness.
Cindy...Gotta say, you became a favorite of mine on the show. I'm glad you were on Team Brunette too. Because quite frankly, the other team BLEW!
i was glad to see you stand up for yourself at the reunion. you were so low-key during the season you seemed to blend into the wallpaper. good job, see you next season.
Cindy you are my favorite housewife along with Kelly and Jill. Alex is totally weird and I don't know why anyone even listens to her!
WOW. That was a painful show. You guys must prepare for days. I watched because I loved the interesting people and relationships. I am not judging and you shouldn't either. I think these phone calls and cat calling/ name calling issues are beneath you all. Cindy, a lot of people are watching, don't you have a bigger message for all of us than, "I can find anything to hate the blondes".
You are a beautiful and amazing woman. You brought class to this trainwreck of a show!
Going to Dallas to get a CB treatment!
I think your awesome! Sonya is she acting like you did something so horrible to her. OK you took a business call, you apologize several times so I am not sure what she wants from you...
Am very happy to be your first commenter. I absolutely love your ability to be so genuine. You and Kelly are my favorites. You live in the real world. I loved you pointing out the ladies on the opposite couch looked like talking chickens. It cracked me up. So fitting. Keep on keeping it real!
I think this is not for you. YOu can see it on your face when you have to deal with these ladies. RUN...
I really enjoyed watching you on the show this season, but at the same time I feel sorry for the fact that you had to come in to such a group with so much against each other and you walked in to years of backstabbing, I hope to see you on the next season, maybe a fresh face and new imput on how they need to ask liek ladies is what they need, a hip chick with a rocker style
Kudos for getting in there with the big dogs this season. However, during the reunion I felt like you resorted to name calling and put downs rather than stating your point of view.
I have to say I believe you were the most real of the housewives this season.. it could be because you were new and the "fame" hasn't gotten in your way yet but I loved the way you took every moment as it came, no feeling of rehearsal or setting up. The rest of the cast you could tell that they were very aware of the system and how it worked. Good Job.
Hope you're coming back next year. You were refreshing and approachable. Best wishes to you and your beautiful babies.
Cindy You seem like a strong lady that has a lot on her plate and doing very good.
You might get a chair next time and set by Andy,
Do not become a Jim, Luann or Kelly please
Cindy, I think you are a truly genuine person. Thank you for showing working women in a real light. We can have the life that we choose with no matter the amount in your bank account.
Good luck to you in all you do.
I enjoyed you! 80% of the time someone was talking over you, so it was hard to hear your voice... from what I was able to hear, was interesting and fun. You instantly reminded me of the "very cool" girl in the movie, Eddie & the Cruisers II ( I hope you take that as a compliment, because I love that movie, and love the girl's character!).
Watching the Reunion this year was... Awful, Awful, Awful (I'm talking about everyone, but you). ...we have women in business, whether they are selling products or being a spokesperson, asking us to be interested in their business... yet, the people that they are on a show with, that can generate "buzz" around their products, don't get along! ...I couldn't finish watching the Reunion show, it went from bad to worse.
Positive energy attracts positive energy (I think you get that!)
Will you sign up to do another Season? ... can't blame you if you just said, "AAAAAAaaaaaaagh"!
Enjoy those sweet babies! ~ Jes (a fellow twin)
Cindy, I loved watching you this season. You were a great addition, and love your no-nonsense attitude. Your baby girls are beautiful also. It would have been nice to see more of you in your family life and less bickering with Sonja and Ramona, but I guess that's where the drama is. Anyway, I heard you on our local radio station, Q102 - Elvis Duran in the Morning, and would love it if you would be willing to expand your Completely Bare business to a location in Philly. Something to think about! Have a great rest of the summer!!!
Cindy, You handled these drama queens like a pro! You are professional and sweet...don't change! See you next season! Go Team Brunettes!
I thought I was going to like you ...but as the seasson played out...i saw that your are just like the other 3 ...that you have chose to be friends with. ( self centered, baby's ) You all ack like high school girls.. (the mean ones )
Cindy, please stay real and honest and don't get yourself involved the high school type drama! In the beginning of the season you seemed like another real, genuine person (like Alex) and I hope that you stay that way. The reunion made everyone on the couch look like clowns, though!
I think you are a breath of fresh air on the show. I cannot believe how out of hand the reunion got,,,,, next season should be interesting!
