Is Barbara Kavovit Wearing Too Much Self-Tanner? The Ladies Have Feelings...

The Real Housewives of New York City newbie can't catch a break when it comes to the ladies' critiques of her style choices.

Poor Barbara Kavovit can't catch a break. The Real Housewives of New York City newbie has been questioned by the ladies for her style choices all season long, from her penchant for wrap dresses to her tummy-baring tops. And when the construction pro stopped by her first-ever reunion looking statuesque and glittering from head to toe, of course the Housewives had thoughts.

"Do you think Barbara has too much tanner on her arm right now?" Bethenny Frankel posed to the group.

"Absolutely," declared Luann de Lesseps.

"Too much shimmer," chimed in Tinsley Mortimer, to which Luann echoed, "Too much shimmer, baby."

Bethenny took it upon herself to save Barbara from herself and started scrubbing her golden arm with a tissue, while Andy Cohen noted, "I do feel like I'm at a Jersey Housewives reunion."

Dorinda Medley likened Barbara to the Tin Man, which Ramona Singer repeated, causing Dorinda to want credit for the cleverness of the original comment. 

"Let's see what's on the napkin!" Andy insisted. Bethenny turned the now-brown napkin to the camera to show exactly how much tanner had come off. "You also ruined the room in Miami with your tanner," Andy reminded Barbara, in case she had forgotten. 

Look, no one can say Barbara didn't leave a mark on her rookie RHONY season — even if that mark was brown self-tanner on a white bed frame.
