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?
