Fox Fur Merkins Will Switch To Faux Fur, Cindy Barshop Announces

Mark it down, folks: PETA just added another “win” to its record.

The animal rights group has successfully convinced Cindy Barshop, former “Real Housewives of New York” star and owner of luxe spa chain Completely Bare, to swap the real fur on her fluffy fox merkins to faux.

Barshop got the attention of media (and plenty of incredulous women) when she introduced two furry bikini line enhancements: the “Foxy Bikini” ($225), in which actual fox fur is applied to the nether region, and “The Carnivale Bikini “($195), which adheres neon-colored feathers to one’s bikini line.

While most people (including us) were more perplexed as to why a woman would want a tuft of colorful fluff down there, PETA took issue with the use of fox fur. In a statement to The Huffington Post, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said about Barshop’s new offering:

“It’s outright sleazy, and it’s downright cruel to kill an animal to decorate your privates. She seems to be making the point that fur is for c*nts.”
