Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel has found herself to be the butt of controversy after posing buck naked for a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ad. The ad, which shows the chef in all her glory, is an "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign. And that's exactly what she did. But the over-the-top ad has caused some to take a closer look at Frankel, including fellow housewife and Frankel ally Jill Zarin. Frankel apparently attacked Zarin for donning some furry friends. Zarin came back with her claws out Tweeting, "I wouldn't throw stones at glass houses, my love." A source, probably Zarin herself, told Page Six, "How can someone who encourages people to buy and eat chicken be a pioneer against animal cruelty?" Ironically, a spokesperson for the usually militant PETA chickened out and defended Frankel saying, "Bethenny is not a vegan and never claimed to be. She has, however, brought much-needed attention to PETA's anti-fur campaign." Frankel also raised a few eyebrows when she said that the ad had very little airbrushing and added that she was pregnant when she was photographed. To which Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice responded, "Someone tell Bethenny that sperm does not make you look fat. I'm not buying the airbrushing thing in any case."
