7 Former Real Housewives Of New York City: Where Are They Now?
The Real Housewives of New York City began back in 2008. It was the second show created within the Real Housewives franchise and many of the women from the original season are still on the show today! Fans have been able to follow the professional and personal lives of LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer since day one which is one of the reasons the show has such a loyal following. On the other hand, we’ve seen a lot of women come and go from the show and we can’t help but wonder where they are now! Some of these women are still chasing the limelight while others have quietly settled down to focus on their family. Here’s a look at 7 former Real Housewives of New York City to see what they are up to now!
7. Alex McCord
Alex McCord was always the black sheep of the Real Housewives. Not only did she live far away in Brooklyn, but her personality didn’t quite mesh with the other women. She appeared on The Real Housewives of New York City from season 1 through 4, but was fired alongside Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon after season 4. Soon after being let go she got a gig at Rumorfix doing video blogs about her time on the show and revealing behind-the-scenes secrets. She also blogged for The Stir about RHONY. Even though she talked ill about reality television, or at least the atmosphere of Bravo’s Real Housewives, Alex and her Australian husband, Simon, appeared on another reality show called VH1 Couple’s Therapy in 2012. Simon and Alex also wrote a book about raising their kids in the city, Little Kids, Big City. The married couple are still together raising their two kids, Francis and Johan, but they moved from the big apple and now live in Australia so the kids can be closer to their grandparents.
6. Cindy Barshop
Barshop was only on The Real Housewives of New York City for one season. She appeared in season 4 as a single mother of two who was juggling her business and family. Today Cindy Barshop still runs her Completely Bare empire and lives in New York City with her twins. She opened up locations in NYC, Long Island and Scarsdale, but according to Reality Tea, she had to shut down several locations in 2011. The business is reportedly only operating in the New York area now, but she has expanded her business with a line of at-home waxing kits. In 2014 she hired a new CEO and partner so that she could take more time off to spend with her children and relaunched the business as Spruce & Bond. She also opened a new a brand new business venture called VSpot Medi-Spa. Her twins are now 6-years-old and she is still single. She is still friends with a few of the Housewives like LuAnn, Dorinda and newbie Jules Wainstein, but she’s still at odds with Sonja Morgan.
