Cindy Barshop dodged a bullet after her descrimination suit was dropped.
The former Real Housewives Of NYC member was sued by a former employee of her salon franchise.
The employee, Altovise Collier, sued Completely Bare for firing her because she was black.
In her complaints, Collier stated that she was not fully trained leading to her poor performance and that employee said she was hired to "inject some color" into the salon.
When Collier confronted her boss, Barshop cut her loose,
Collier filed her complaint with New York Division of Human Rights but it was dropped due to lack of evidence.
Barshop was pleased with the good news. She states the following after the case was dropped:
I’m so happy that the truth has come out. I’ve never looked at people based on race, religion, creed, or color. I see people for who they are.
Double emphasis on skin tone there.
The good news was welcomed by Barshop, who was not asked to return for Real Housewives along with a slew of others.
She says she and the show parted "amicably."
