Our Communications department has eyes and ears all over the media in New York and LA, so they find out about lots of animal’ey stories long before they run. And this week, they got wind of a More magazine photo shoot featuring CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo, aka the “Money Honey”, in a fox fur trimmed coat.

Bartiromo is quoted as saying “Chic, sexy clothes are the real me . . . The coat is spectacular; the fur cuffs give it just the right amount of glamour.” But when Page 6 asked about it, her rep insisted that despite the More article, the newswoman doesn’t approve of fur, doesn’t own any, and that wearing the coat for the shoot was a “mistake.” Yes it was.

We’re getting in touch to clarify Bartiromo’s position, and I’ll let you know what we find out.
