Bravo Announces Newest NY Housewife: The Barest Of Them All

We know you probably wondered why on earth the Real Housewives of New York showed up to the launch party for the Vajwel At-Home Bikini Waxing Kit. Today the cat was let out of the bag when Bravo TV announced their replacement for Bethenney Frankel on the new season of the Real Housewives New York. The newest member of the cast is none other than our vajazzled, vajeweled, vatooed spa queen and owner of the Completely Bare Spa, Cindy Barshop. According to the New York Post, Bravo VP of programming Christian Barcellos says Barshop adds a distinct flavor to the ensemble. “This show is about self-actualized women — and I think viewers will enjoy getting to know and see [Barshop]. Barshop joins returning “Housewives” Bensimon, Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Sonja Morgan and Jill Zarin.

VAJEWEL: Vajazzle Your Privates in Private

Up until about a year ago, no one knew of the serious need for women everywhere to adorn, tattoo, bedazzle and sparkle their most private regions. Cindy Barshop, the owner of Complete Bare Spa brought you first the Vajazzle, then the Vatoo urging women to dress up a little more (down there). Now our go-to spa for bikini area adornment has just upped the ante with a limited edition kit that allows you to do all of the above in the privacy of your own home. For those of you who are curious but not bold old enough to walk into a spa an ask for the royal treatment, this may be your answer. Last week we were invited to the debut of the NEW limited edition bikini wax kit with BONUS Vajewel™, a $50 gift (Valued at $65) to learn all about it:

Each kit includes:
•  step-by-step instructions for the ultimate, easy at home bikini wax
•  qr code to take you to an instructional video
•  bubblegum pink ouchless strip wax™ for your bikini
•  bubblegum purple ouchless stripless wax™ for a smooth brazilian
•  no mess mats to catch fumbles
•  spatulas for easy wax on application
•  disposable wax strips to wax off
•  completely prepped™ towelettes to get completely clean before you begin
•  completely off™ towelettes to remove any residual wax
•  rear-view-mirror to see what you’re doing
•  BONUS Vajewel™ in the shape of a bow, made exclusively with real Swarovski Elements to add some seasonal flair

Breanna gave the vajewel a try, in G-rated fashion.

Application was a piece of cake. You just warm the adhesive in the palm of your hands then hold it in place for a few seconds. The premiere party featured some swanky, superstar endorsers, the Real Housewives of New York. By the end of the night, Jill, Alex, Kelly and Luann were up on stage singing the praises of the Vajewel. The housewives have added their seal of approval and so have we.

Vattooing: Next in Line for Vajazzling’s Throne

Just when you thought vajazzling was the end all and be all of  vaginal adornment, along comes a trend that allows you to turn your private parts into the Sistine Chapel. Introducing: The Vattoo.  We’re thrilled to help our beloved, intrepid spa buddy Bryce Gruber of The Luxury Spot, who has, for better or worse, become the authority on all questionable down-there design, present her latest video to the world.

How does Vattooing work? A Vattoo starts with a Brazilian Wax, clearing the area of any hair and making for a clean vattoo palette. (If going completely bare isn’t quite your style, a little furry can make for a nice 3D effect.) After the area is completely waxed and you’ve chosen your design, the Vattoo is airbrushed by hand. Don’t try this at home; this isn’t some cheap temporary tattoo from a candy machine. You can customize it any way you’d like, and it lasts 7 to 10 days. For the full story, read Bryce’s recap on

Try it during Spa Week! Bikini Glamour made our list of the top 12 hottest spa trends for Fall 2010, and if the Vattoo doesn’t fall under that umbrella I don’t know what will. Officially called “Inked” by Completely Bare Spa in New York City, this treatment (including the wax) will be offered during the upcoming Spa Week for just $50 at select Completely Bare locations. (Normally $115).

Stay ahead of the curve, let Michaelangelo be your guide, and stay classy my friends.
