on The Real Housewives
of Orange County, viewers will see Vicki Gunvalson in fur for the last
time. When she received a mink coat as a gift on last week’s episode, PETA immediately
sent her our video exposé
of the fur industry narrated by none other
than fashion guru Tim Gunn.
soon as she saw that her coat was made of animals who had been beaten,
electrocuted, or skinned alive, Gunvalson refused to wear fur again. In a statement to Bravo TV’s The Dish, Gunvalson revealed:
The world has changed and I must change as well. Fur, while it
was never something I needed or specifically wanted, it was in my mindset as
something glamorous and a sign of success for a woman. That is no longer the
When PETA sent me video footage of
investigations on fur farms, I was horrified by the cruelty involved. These
animals endure terrible pain and this cruelty is something I do not want to
ever be a part of. After seeing what happens in this industry, I have chosen to
partner with PETA to raise awareness and will not wear fur in the future.
Gunvalson asks any Real Housewives fans who are still
harboring fur in their closets to join her in donating it to PETA.
