Nadya Suleman Wants You To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets. But What About Her?

There is irony. And then there is Nadya Suleman putting up a PETA sign in her front yard warning passerbys to “Always Spay or Neuter” their pets. Yes, Nadya has signed on to be the new face of new PETA campaign with the tagline, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an OctoMom.” So how did this come to be? Nadya has been in serious financial trouble lately and is in danger of losing her home after her father defaulted on a $450K loan. Vivid Entertainment offered to pay for the house in full if Nadya would agree to star in an adult film for them. At the same time, PETA offered her another option—this campaign. “It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats,” read the pitch letter. Nadya decided to take their offer. Her lawyer explains, “No porn. Just PETA. Nadya prefers animals over men.”

Tiger Woods Threatens To Sue PETA Over Billboard, So They Mock Mark Sanford Instead

Remember earlier in the week when we showed you this billboard PETA was planning to erect (Am I 12 years old? Because that word still cracks me up.) in Florida to remind people to get their pets spayed and neutered. Tiger apparently wasn’t too happy about it—his lawyers threatened to sue the animal lovahs if they went forward with their plans. A PETA spokesperson said, “We were contacted by Tiger’s lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard.” So what will PETA do? They’re creating a new billboard featuring South Carolina Governor and tan line addict Mark Sanford. The text beneath his photo will read: “Your dog doesn’t have to go to South America to get laid.” Kind of amazing. [NY Post]

Even PETA Has Something To Say About Tiger’s Infidelity

PETA is set to erect this billboard close to Tiger Woods’ home in Florida. Do you think it goes too far, or does it serve Tiger right for sleeping around so much? Keep reading »

And All Dogs Drool!

Normally I feel pretty “meh” about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and their antics. However, I do agree with some of their beliefs — like the one demonstrated by a PETA protester at the Westminster Dog Show. But you know what would make for a better statement against purebreds? Sponsoring a dog show for mutts! My pup Lucca would totes enter (and win, obvi). [Gawker] Keep reading »

Are Bejeweled Beetles A Creepy Or Chic Fashion Accessory?

Insects aren’t usually considered a must-have fashion accessory. But recently, a woman crossing the border between Mexico and Texas was stopped for her live beetle adorned with blue and gold jewels. The woman’s “brooch” was attached to her clothing with a gold chain and safety pin and was allowed to wander along her clothing. The beetle jewelry was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for further identification.

Apparently, adorning live beetles with jewels and chains is nothing new. It’s been going on for decades, maybe centuries, and Jackie Kennedy reportedly had one decked out with emeralds. Keep reading »

Will Sasha Grey For PETA Make You Want To Spay Your Dog?

Watch PETA’s Sexy “State Of The Union Undress”

People will only pay attention to animal rights if you show them boobies! That’s always seemed to be People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals‘ entire advertising campaign logic, hasn’t it? PETA’s 2010 “State Of The Union Undress” — yes, you read that right, undress — is more of the same. A fetching young model strips down to her bra, panties and garters while lecturing about McDonald’s, KFC and the Ringling Bros. circus. We’ve posted the “safe for work” version above, but for those of you who really need to see boobies before you’ll care about animal cruelty, there is an uncensored version on PETA’s website.

PETA’s Big Oops: Michelle Isn’t Happy About Her Surprise Ad Appearance

Ooooh … looks like somebody’s in trou-ble! Although, to be honest, it seems like PETA was asking for it when they decided to go ahead about put celeb faces on their latest ad with no one’s consent. The poster, which features the slogan “Fur-Free and Fabulous!,” photoshops together a handful of stylish stars who have spoken out against fur in the past—Oprah, Carrie Underwood, Tyra Banks, and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

It’s unclear how the other ladies in the ad feel about this, but the White House is very upset about the surprise endorsement. PETA’s rationalization? “The fact is that Michelle Obama has issued a statement indicating that she doesn’t wear fur, and the world should know that in PETA’s eyes, that makes her pretty fabulous.”

A good cause? Perhaps. But we’re not too sure we’d want our faces associated with an ad whose copy sounds like a ladymag coverline, either. Besides, some of us around here like harem pants, but the last thing we want is to inadvertently end up their spokesmodel. [NBC Chicago] Keep reading »

Bethenny Frankel Strips Down For PETA

Our favorite tell-it-like-it-is Real Housewife, Bethenny Frankel, is the latest to shed her clothes for a PETA ad. This image is stunning and will likely sell many of her Skinny Girl Margaritas. But, uh, can PETA work on getting more dudes for this campaign? Keep reading »

Dominique Swain Is Worst PETA Spokesperson Ever

You loved her in “Lolita” and uh, whatever else she was in (hm…), but actress Dominique Swain just did a really, really bad thing that makes puppies cry. Not only was she lame enough to not get her dog fixed (what responsible pet owner in this day and age does that!?), but the cocker spaniel had a litter of eight puppies, and she decided to dump them at an already overburdened Malibu animal shelter. But wait, it gets worse: After driving up in her BMW and insisting they take the pups, workers there informed her that it was crucial that the animals be vaccinated, as puppies can easily die if they don’t get their shots at four and eight weeks. Her dogs were already eight weeks, but they had received none. When they agreed to take the poor creatures and suggested she make a donation to cover the cost of the shots, she claimed she was broke. (Well, like we said, we haven’t seen her in anything lately, but still … animal shelters are broke, Dominique Swain is not.) And the cherry on top of this horrifying tale? Keep reading »
