Cindy reveals to HollywoodLife.com exclusively that it was in fact Bravo’s choice to let her go, but that ‘RHONY’ gave her ‘a great platform to have the world see [her] as a beauty expert!’
Former The Real Housewives of New York City star Cindy Barshop is taking the news that she wasn’t asked back for season five very lightly. In fact, Cindy tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she’s excited about the change because being a Housewife has opened up many new doors for her — and we might even being seeing her return to to TV quite soon!
“I am happy with the decision because when one door closes, another opens,” Cindy tells us. “Bravo gave me a great platform to have the world see me as a beauty expert, a platform for Completely Bare on a national level. It gave be the ability to raise more money for different children’s charities — The MacDella Cooper Foundation and the Starlight Children’s Foundation — which all three things I’m going to keep on doing.”
Cindy is already looking at how she can use this situation to boost her career — and it seems to be working. “I have a lot of different opportunities now,” she shares. “I have received offers to be a beauty expert on a national show. It’s more of a once a week, once a month thing that I was talking to different networks about.”
“It was Bravo’s decision, but I want everyone to understand that any type of change in your life, brings new opportunity,” continues Cindy. “And opportunity as always will open up some positive environments. I’m excited.”
She agrees that the women that were fired including Jill, Kelly and Alex McCord will survive the change quite well. “I think they will be successful just as I will,” she says. “They also have new opportunities.”
“I’m not a producer. For them to want to make a change, I think there was some underlying reasons and they did,” notes Cindy. “Nobody likes to be said no to but you can always take that as a new opportunity. My life was great the year before that. It was great this year and it’s just going to be different this year — a new great different. I’m not going anywhere.”
