“Real Housewife” Bethenny Frankel is joining the long list of celebrities who are getting nakey for the sakey of fakey! The reality television star recently teamed up with PETA for a new fur-free billboard, which will be on display in Times Square.

About her decision, Frankel said: “I used to wear fur. I went to a cocktail party, walked outside on Fifth Avenue, and a PETA protestor was holding up a skinned animal. I looked at it, and it made me sick. I felt disgusting. That day was a huge change, and since then I’ve really been against fur. I’m cleaning out my closets—trim, everything. I don’t see any reason for cruelty.”

To learn more about why fur is never, ever, ever okay (and certainty NOT green), visit PETA.org!

    I wish I were famous just so I could do one of these ads (especially because they would airbrush out my spider veins). No, really, I think it’s great that she did this.

    YAY this is wonderful! There has been so much fur promoted in all of the real housewives seasons… it’s wonderful that one of them is finally finding a conscience! Thank you Bethenny! (FYI Bethenny also makes lots of vegan goodies in her skinny girl business!)

    I understand why PETA has been against violence towards animals. I just feel bad that they have to go extreme- as far as being branded ecological terrorist/extremist- because of their way of promoting ecohealthy stuff.

    PETA gets more soft core porn like with every ad. I don’t know one person that got interested in animal rights or quit wearing fur because they saw an ad like this. Aren’t most people that wear fur women? I don’t know many women that would be into this ad. Why not show a picture of a sad fox at a fur farm with a fact about fur like how it can take 50 foxes to make one coat or how the animals are anally electrocuted. That would get my attention a lot more than some chick’s ass!

      “chicks ass”, watch your language missy ! a little bit more respect for women !!

    • gia!

      Amen to that! I’ve never seen a guy wear fur. I somehow doubt this will get women to stop wearing fur. Inform people PETA! Half naked people won’t the animals! It’s just nice to look at!

    “nakey for the sakey of fakey” :-P

    Eww gross… keep your clothes on sweetheart.

    Leave the beauty thing to the shiksas!

  • VeggieTart

    This is so old. I mean, do people really pay attention to a naked woman saying she won’t wear fur? Well, I’m sure some people gawk at the naked woman, but ignore the message.

    I think the ads are fun. Some Peta campaigns look juvenile, I agree. But the “Rather Go Naked” campaign is not one of the IMHO.

    Fur shmur, all I see is a nice airbrushed butt. I wish PETA would get away from the sexism.
