On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Miami
, supermodel Joanna Krupa filmed a controversial ad for PETA (is there any other kind?). Now she is calling out her castmates (specifically Marysol Patton) for wearing fur and the Kardashians for selling fur items at their stores, as well as revealing why this is such an important cause for her.
"This is my third PETA campaign and I wanted to make sure it showed a more comedic side to a very strong message," Joanna wrote on her Bravo blog
. "But I also wanted to make sure it was still controversial like my last campaign, because without controversy you don't get the same impact in getting your message heard."
Because Joanna is so passionate about animal rights, she find it offensive that her co-star Marysol wore a fur stole that had been in her family for three generations to the lingerie party.
"Someone that wears a fur coat in 2012 is a person that needs to prove that they have status, because they are insecure and think wearing a fur coat makes them stand out," Joanna explained. "But in reality, it makes them look arrogant, because we are not living in the Stone Age anymore. I will fight until the day I die to be a voice for these amazing creatures."
In the episode, Joanna also made fun of the Kardashians, saying if she ever ran into Kim, things would definitely get heated.
"The reason I decided to do a protest against the Kardashian store was because Khloe Kardashian did an anti-fur campaign years ago, and I found out they were selling fur at Dash [their boutique in California]. To me, someone like that is a hypocrite and I wanted to make sure they were exposed. Even during and after the protest, they made a statement they never sold fur." Joanna's blog
goes on to reveal photos of a receipt from Dash as well as the product purchased there, which is a rabbit fur vest sold for $275.
"Since then I am happy to say Dash in Calabasas closed and they reopened in West Hollywood, which is now fur free. To make it clear, I have nothing against the Kardashians, but I will always speak my mind when it comes to protecting animals. It's not a direct attack against them. I am very passionate about helping the voiceless and defenseless and will never give that up. I believe karma will get each and every one of them for hurting God's creatures. I am against any type of cruelty to animals. Amen!"
