We got to know Joey Healy very well throughout the course of The Singles Project. We were right there with him during the highs (like his adorable apple picking date) and the lows (like that time he got stood up).
So of course we're eager to hear what Joey has been up to since The Singles Project wrapped in 2014. Luckily, The Daily Dish caught up with Joey during The Real Housewives of New York City Season 8 premiere party earlier this month. He was there to support his good friend, RHONY alum Cindy Barshop, who also attended the bash, as well as the current cast members, including newbie Jules Wainstein. "I think that she's a worthy contender. And she's smart. She's studied past seasons," Joey said of RHONY's newest addition. "[She's] something a little different. I think she's going to be a good mix. I think that she'll hold her own."
As for Joey, he has mostly been all about "work, work, work" since appearing on The Singles Project. "[I've been] very busy with my eyebrow world. After The Singles Project, I just kind of threw myself into work," Joey told The Daily Dish. "I opened a new store in the West Village, Joey Healy Eyebrow Studio. It's bigger and better than ever. I'm expanding my product line."
And yes, Joey is "still single," but he said he is "still actively dating." His time on The Singles Project has even impacted how he approaches dating these days. "I think I learned to be a little bit more open, less judgmental," he said. "I'm also a little bit more confident now. If I could date a guy on television, I could go up to a guy at the gym. So I feel a little bit more confident in approaching men."
He has also experienced some personal growth after watching himself on The Singles Project. "It was just also nice to see myself reflected back," Joey said. "I think I probably corrected my behavior a little bit. I think I thought I seemed a little rude or uptight in certain moments, so maybe that was a good mirror to have. It was a good experience to sort of learn and adjust."
So would Joey ever do reality TV again? "I would. It was a lot of fun. You know, it was great for business. It was hard during the filming, to be honest with you. It was so much work. But all of the aftermath has been nothing but positive, and I think it was a really good experience," he said. "And I'd be open to doing it again if it ever came my way. It's a very funny thing. It's like a very mystical, little world. But I had a lot of fun."
And that's something that definitely comes through in this memorable moment from Joey's time on The Singles Project, below.
