Real Housewife to Go Real Naked for PETA

When I was in college, Bravo was one of the only channels I watched in my NYC apartment. I spent hours glued to Project Runway marathons, but the most addictive show was always The Real Housewives of New York City. The housewives were full of can’t-turn-away drama, and I secretly hoped to catch one of them casually walking down my street.

While I’m no longer in NYC, I’ll still be getting the chance to see a housewife in the flesh (and nothing else) very soon. Bethenny Frankel has agreed to pose for PETA’s newest “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ad on the roof of one of New York’s iconic skyscrapers.

Bethenny—queen of sass, class, and vegan cookies (that’s right, she bakes vegan!)—will follow in the footsteps of Khloe Kardashian, Pamela Anderson, and Christina Applegate and bare some skin to draw attention to the suffering of animals who are killed for theirs.

Look out for the ad this fall. In the meantime, why not help Bethenny spread the word by wearing one of our popular “Mean People Wear Fur” T-shirts?

This is an awesome site !!

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Thank you for the reference John Andrew. Even though I am a Christian I often read the scriptures of other religions. Every religion with the exception of Satanism and I did not say witchcraft I said Satanism which are two different belief systemshas good things. Blessings on your walk!

    I think that probably this campaign is the only one that merits a little nakedness on account that we are talking skin on skin.

  • Haylee says:

    Jackie it certainly gets your attention though doesnt it? do whatever it takes to ban the fur industry I say! And since when is nakedness classified as pornography? You’ve got some issues love. Go PETA

    To the comment from Amanda M. First you obviously have some interest in animal rights or you wouldn’t be on this sight. Second if you must eat meat for psycological reasons because that is all it is then please eat humanly raised meat because it is an inch better than the factory farmed meat. Thanks for your comments on the site

    Jackie You obviously have never seen any real pornography. Is Michelangelo’s David pornographic? PETA’s PSAs are always tastefully done so I see absolutely no problem.

  • Jackie says:

    And PETA successfully signs up another person to promote their views through pornography. You don’t need to pose naked to send the message you won’t wear fur.

    Oh Please! this is not a recipe column not everyone can eat split peas and dal. years of listening to holier than thou diet gurus has left me cynical.

  • john andrew says:

    you probally know this already but as the hindu scriptures bhagavada gita says chapter seventeen verse ten in the purport is devine grace says it is only through brute mentality that this killing goes on the civilized method of obtaing needed fat is by milk. Slaughter is the way of subhumans Protein is amply available through split pea dal whole wheat etc. Please Visit http://www.krishna .com and order your own BhagavadGita asitis
