'Gilligan's' or Governors Island

Cindy discusses the Governors Island party and hair removal.

By Cindy Barshop

Gilligan’s Island aka Governors Island:This is going to age me, but I think it puts everything in to perspective. Picture this: Thurston Howell throws a birthday party for his beautiful wife Mrs. Lovey Howell, while stranded on an extremely cold and windy island with nothing other than picnic tables and champagne. Oh and then Mary Ann and Ginger stop by. . .

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Yes! You guessed it! We are in the new spin-off of Gilligan’s Island. I’m Mary Ann and you can obviously guess the rest of the characters.

To clear everything up I think it was wonderful what Thurston, I mean Simon, did for Alex, but it's sometimes hard for me to get out my own house in Manhattan. And now I had to trek with the girls to an unstable weather island. It was freezing and super windy with no shelter, and champagne was toppling everywhere. I really don’t see why we all had to leave Manhattan when we all live there so . . .I escaped earlier than the rest.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon– Mom/Friend of The Year: Next, I don’t think everyone really understands how upset I was and how helpful and understanding Kelly has been (SHE IS THE BEST MOM EVER!) I had a little meltdown at dinner over my nanny taking advantage of me. I know, I know -- I come off like a confident woman, but outside of the office and in my personal life I’ll admit it. . .I am a push. . .push. . .PUSHOVER! Yes I said it! Kelly was able to console me and give me advice when my then-nanny essentially made her own hours and came and went as she pleased. If you are mom, you’ll totally understand. . .you want nothing other than to make your children as happy as possible, and sometimes all the time you put yourself on the back burner and jeopardize your own happiness. Having my girls love who they are with puts a huge smile of my face and after all, these women are my family. They help me take care of the two most important things in my life, Jesse and Zoe. You have to make sure that everyone in the situation is happy, including YOURSELF!

Back to Business: I had LuAnn, Sonja, and Kelly come to a girl’s private spa day at one of my completely bare locations where they were able to remove some unwanted hair. It was actually quite comical to see LuAnn get all proper on us speaking about hair removal! I created completely bare so that women and men have a place to feel comfortable speaking about hair removal. Now I have my website to act as a public forum. . .so ask away! Ask any personal questions that you may have about hair growing in weird places – it’s NATURAL!

Sooo. . . for the next Andy Cohen poll. . .Who wants to see LuAnn get VAJEWELED?!
