Real Housewives Star's Fox Fur Vagina Merkin Going Faux

Last week we reported on “Real Housewives of New York” star Cindy Barshop and her new line of fox fur merkins, a wig meant to dress up a gal’s shaved pubic area.

An email campaign through change.org was directed at Barshop asking her to have some compassion and quit using real fur, and it looks like she heard it loud and clear. One Ecorazzi reader (okay, my mother) received an email back from the creator of the fox fur merkin that said she was going to switch to faux fur!

Barshop wrote, “I respect and value your opinion and was moved by your determination in what you believe in. I have every intention to fix this by re-introducing the Foxy Bikini with Faux Fur. Lots of love and positive energy to you and your cause.”

We are thrilled Cindy is switching over to faux fur. It’s a decision that will save lives and help stop the cruel trend of using animal fur as a “luxury” material.

Although personally, we’re still not really sure a pubic wig is the number one thing on our shopping list.

    I guess that makes these “Merkins for Hope”!

    Shave your beaver and replace with faux fir? Am I missing something here?

    Also, take her picture down a notch. It scared the crap out of me when I opened the link!

    This has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard of.


Chef thinks breeding & killing endangered animals is the only way to save them

Pretending it’s better to live and be killed than it is to not live at all is just a selfish, ignorant excuse to continue using animals.


Protesters more upset about chicken cannibalism than people eating chickens

Anything less than advocating an end to all animal use sells these chickens and other animals out.
