We didn't think that she'd take these kind of allegations lightly!

Real Housewives of New York City castmember Cindy Barshop is lashing back at a lawsuit filed by a her former employee at Completely Bare, Altovise Collier, who claims that she was fired because of she was African American, and instead asserts that she was let go because she didn't do her job well, and it was killing business!

Barshop says:

"In an effort to mask her own deficient work performance and serial on the job screw-ups, Collier, in a racist fashion, asserts that her race, national origin and skin color were the basis for her termination."

Furthermore, Barshop explains that Collier was only employed for two and a half months before she was fired over "disciplinary and other work performance problems, including client complaints" and that the suit is merely "defamatory campaign" to ruin her reputation!

Given the shady nature - and some conflicting information - in Collier's original complaint, we tend to think that Cindy may right this time!

Either way, it will be very inneresting to see what comes of all of this! Yuck!

What do U think? Team Cindy or Team employee?
