There's a new housewife in town: Self-proclaimed wax queen Cindy Barshop will join The Real Housewives of New York City next season, Bravo announced.
Christian Barcellos, programming VP for the network, told the New York Post that Barshop, the owner of the Completely Bare salon chain, has an "organic connection to the cast" and is already friends with cast member Ramona Singer.

"She's a very successful, entrepreneurial, self-made woman. She's the epitome of the go-go New Yorker," Barcello says.
Bethenny Frankel is leaving The Real Housewives of New York City after three seasons, US reports.
"Last season was scary and painful," she told US about why she turned down Bravo's offers to return for Season 4. "It took all of the...
The Real Housewives of D.C.
Real Housewives of D.C.
Bravo gives a big vote to Washington, D.C. The current season of Top Chef is based in the nation's capital, and now this newest entry in the soapy "Housewives" franchise is set there as well. Here, the manicured realms of five D.C. women — Stacie Scott Turner, Michaele Salahi, Catherine Ommanney, Lynda Erkiletian and Mary Schmidt Amons — are charted in reality fashion. In tonight's premiere, Michaele (notorious as a crasher of a 2009 White House state dinner) throws a polo event, but modeling-agency proprietress Lynda snubs her. Meanwhile, Mary gets ready for her birthday bash, and Stacie presides over a dinner party.

9 pm/ET ABC While this summer hit is already slated for a second season, its rookies — in their rookie season — have been making their share of mistakes on the job. Tonight, squad members are tested by a home invasion in a posh neighborhood, and officers reveal quite a bit about their off-duty lives. And once it seems like the smoke has cleared, Traci leaves to take care of a personal matter, and Andy winds up facing an armed perpetrator by herself. Let's hope she remembered to load her gun this time. — Fred Mitchell

Bethenny Getting Married
Last week, viewers watched Bethenny Frankel walk down the aisle and become a bona fide housewife. But now that she and Jason Hoppy have tied the knot, what's the long-term future of Bethenny Getting Married? Frankel, for one, isn't worried.
"The best parts on my show are when Jason and I are sitting in the kitchen talking about nonsense, or...
Steve Carell and Ricky Gervais
This week television was overstuffed with funny people — intentional and otherwise. Bethenny Frankel injected some levity into her solemn nuptials. ESPN analysts made us chuckle by painstakingly stretching out four little words — "I'm going to Miami" — to nearly a half-hour. Joel McHale and Jay Leno were both good sports about not receiving Emmy nominations. Ricky Gervais was just what the doctor ordered. And Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert reunited, and the angels sang in comedy heaven. Welcome to Top Moments: Make 'Em Laugh Edition.
Big Brother 12
Big Brother 12
The voyeuristic reality series returns for a 12th season and, of course, there is a major twist. Tonight, 13 new houseguests enter the art deco-themed compound, but only 12 of them are playing to win the $500,000 grand prize. Why? Because one is actually a saboteur whose sole mission is to disrupt life in the house for everyone else. If the prankster survives to the halfway point in the season, he or she will receive a substantial financial reward. The mystery person's identity will be made known to viewers on July 15, the date of the first live show.

Season 9 opens with the 100th episode of the series, an hour-long installment featuring a retrospective with the Charm City Cakes staff looking back at the most memorable moments in the show's history, from the most over-the-top confections to the biggest "caketastrophes." It's definitely been a roller-coaster ride for the crew, so it's fitting that this week also finds them constructing a complex roller-coaster cake that proves to be quite a challenge.
