Just when we thought we had seen it all, Wendy Williams has gone and rocked her birthday suit for a good cause — to save the animals. This is probably the perfect time to ask the question, “Uh, How YOU Doing!?”
The shock jock turned popular morning talk show host definitely shocked fans (and thrilled PETA supporters and stans) this afternoon when she debuted her very naked “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ads for PETA’s winter campaign in Times Square. There are two versions of the ad, courtesy of PETA, including one where the host is laid out on the ground with one of her signature wigs covering her chest, and another image where she is standing up, wig still covering her lady bits, but this time showcasing some starry tattoos around her midsection.
According to Williams, “We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let the animals keep theirs.” If you can remember the days when Williams used to rock fur hats and luscious coats that were anything but faux, you’re not crazy, that did happen. However, Williams, like former naked PETA spokeswoman Taraji P. Henson, decided to leave the minks and furs behind when she found out what the poor critters had to go through so she could look fab on red carpets. I’m not going to front, it’s hard to watch an animal get skinned alive just so a rapper can look baller in a video, especially since most furs are extremely obnoxious. Surprisingly though, PETA wants your fur. Williams will push her viewers to donate their fur coats and items so that they can be given to the homeless this winter. Though I think a simple down coat with a nice pair of hat and gloves might be better for them, I’m down for all the giving that’s about to go down.
So what do you think? Are you loving the ads? While I’m all for people loving and protecting animals (though I’m not really a fan of PETA because they can be abrasive jerks at times), do we really need to see these celebs butt booty naked to know that they’re down for the cause? But I guess you can’t really show support unless you’re showing some skin for this organization. Kudos to you for doing something nice Wendy, but, uh ruh, I probably could have got the message without seeing your airbrushed naked body. Nice wig though!
