Fur, Raccoons in the Media
Please make the following media contacts:
STAR MAGAZINE is a very popular tabloid magazine taken
over two years ago by Bonnie Fuller, of 'W' and VOGUE infamy (big fur
whores, in case some don't know). Surprisingly, since she took over the mag
has featured lots of faux fur and good stuff.
The last two issues, however, had articles called
"Celebrity dream item of the week" about a Christian Dior bag with real
fox-fur shoulder strap and real snake skin sandals by Dolce & Gabana. Let's

*NOTE: I recently went to scope out Sereti, a fur shop
that opened in Midway Plaza in Scarsdale over a year ago, I'd been thinking
about a demo there for a while. Upscale store, clearly catering to a
younger crowd. The store was GONE, barren. I couldn't believe my eyes.
Went to check with mall management, who confirmed they were gone, they
didn't pay their rent and were kicked out. I had a lovely talk with mall
mgmt, who (nicely) asked about my food and clothing choices. We had a good
talk and I left a business card.
I understand this is but one store; and Lord & Taylor
has added rabbit skin boas...but it was still a beautiful thing, not to be
minimized. This store was designed to win. "Goodbye, Sereti!
Dont' let the door hit you in the ass!!" Keep
spreading the word - it is possible that's what got Sereti OUT.
GLOBE MAGAZINE 8/6 featured a story about actress Renee
Zellweger feeding pita bread and hummus to a racoon at a restaurant. From
The staff said 'Don't do that, you'll only
encourage it,' to which Zellweger replied 'But it's so cute!'
Let's hope the adorable animal didn't have rabies!
The writer of this column, Shelly Loosch, has stated
she is supportive of animal causes.
Women's World Magazine has jumped onto the Atkins
bandwagon, also pushing dairy as the answer to everything from diabetes to
On top of everything else, they are currently
recommending emu oil as a topical treatment for joint pain. THERE IS
ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE that rubbing the oil of dead birds on your skin is
good for your joints.
