'NY Housewives' Star

I'm Making My Merkins Fur-Free!

1/28/2012 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cindy Barshop
Former "Real Housewives of New York" star Cindy Barshop has heard the cries of the anti-fur community and had a change of heart -- she's going to make her new line of luxury merkins fur-free!

As TMZ first reported, the "RHONY" is selling the pubic wigs at her NYC waxing salon, Completely Bare. One of the merkins used real fox fur -- which, according to our sources, drew lots of hate mail and threats in Cindy's direction. 

So, we're told, plans to use the real fox fur have been scrapped and instead she'll go with faux fur.

Now you don't have to worry about PETA throwing paint on your nether regions.

fur free is always a good idea. It's still the most ridiculous product I ever heard of. I don't want to know who would spend money on something so stupid.

The question is, why would anyone in the world buy a toupee for their hoo-ha. That is just such bad taste, maybe it's Jersey thing.

Why does the media refer to these sad and sorry individuals as "stars"? They are in no way, shape or form "stars" of any kind. They are stupid women who get paid to have cameras film them day in day out. Please, these wenches couldn't act themselves out of a wet paper bag.

Can see it now...out on a date, things start to heat up, a southern expedition begins and your Merkin ends up in your lovers mouth...EWWW. Talk about trauma LOL they will never go south again.

My gut says this is nothing but lip service from this skank.


I hope PETA stays on her because I have a feeling she isn't willing to change her ways.

This makes no sense whatsoever. Why is a person waxing off their pubic hair just so they can wear a pubic 'wig'? How do these pubic 'wigs' stay on? Glue?
