Vanderpump Rules Stars Strip Down for PETA!

The only thing better than getting naked is getting naked for a good cause. Or maybe the only thing better than supporting a good cause is supporting it while you're naked?

Either way, three of Vanderpump Rules' hottest stars are teaming up and stripping down to protest against orcas being held in marine circuses like SeaWorld.

And, as you'll see in the video below, they're wearing some very interesting body paint. …

For those of you hoping to see Lisa Vanderpump wearing nothing but body paint … we've very sorry to disappoint.

But we hope that Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay won't leave you disappointed.

Nudity isn't inherently sexual, but it sure does grab people's attention. 

Just look at how good Scheana Marie Shay looks in body paint:

If your message is important, you might want to make sure that you hook people's attention.

Controversial animal rights organization PETA, which has been slammed in the past by political opponents but also by big-time proponents of animal rights who accuse PETA of hypocrisy and of misguided practices, uses nudity a lot.

PETA even made some weird bestiality posters in a recent push to promote veganism.

Sometimes the message gets lost.

But when it comes to this particular campaign, it's not difficult to agree with PETA or these three Vanderpump Rules beauties.

The video below isn't just skin and body paint (though those are also factors). It's also 

Ariana Madix makes sure that their goals are clear, saying:

"Today we're here with PETA shooting a campaign to release the orcas into seaside sanctuaries from SeaWorld."

Her costar, Scheana, adds some grim information about the prospects for captive orcas:

"Orcas have died at SeaWorld and the fact that none of them died from old age is just insane."

That is so, so sad.

Lala Kent shares how the release of captive orcas from marine circuses like SeaWorld is important to her.

"When I saw the documentary, Blackfish, it literally changed my entire life."

That documentary did wonders for raising awareness.

"I found my passion and I found my voice and I will not stop until any place like SeaWorld is completely shut down."

That's a powerful personal cause to have.

"Places like SeaWorld or the Miami Sea Aquarium … it is the equivalent to me of taking a baby and putting them in a bathtub and having them grow up there."

That might be a bit of a stretch — maybe forcing a baby to grow up within a single room, also unforgivably awful, would be a better analogy.

(We're not blaming Lala for that — PETA has compared meat-eating to rape in the past; being inflammatory is arguably part of their brand)

Lala continues:

"When you take a mammal of that size and put it into basically a swimming pool, you can't expect it to do anything but self-destruct."

Sadly, we know of countless instances of orcas doing just that. They lose their minds.

Ariana provides her own thoughts:

"Orcas are very social animals and they're very intelligent animals."

That's very true.

"Each pod has their own language. So you have orcas from all different pods who are living in these bathtubs."

Conflict in that situation seems inevitable. And so does misery.

"They're fighting with each other because they have no way of communicating, they're confused, and they're full of anguish, and it shouldn't be that way."

As far as PETA advertisements go, this one is solid. It's an idea that we can all get behind.

Shout-out to these three Vanderpump Rules stars for using their platform for good!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd: Married!

It’s wedding season, y’all!

This particular time of year, people seem to like to get married, celebrities and normal folk alike.

And it seems like Dancing with the Stars power couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are those kind of people.

Yesterday, Maksim and Peta got married in an absolutely gorgeous ceremony at an actual castle in Long Island.

And, unlike most celebrities, they allowed their guests to take photos throughout the ceremony and reception, and to share those photos on social media.

That’s how we have that beautiful photo of Maksim and Peta dancing during their wedding reception, and photos of … well, you’ll see!

Since both the bride and groom are professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars, it makes sense that many, many stars of the show were there — both in attendance and in the wedding party.

Not all of them though, because Julianne Hough also got married yesterday.

See what we mean about it being wedding season?

Val Chmerkovskiy, Maksim’s brother and another dancing pro, was the best man, and Tony Dovolani was one of his groomsmen.

Meanwhile, Peta chose Sharna Burgess and one-time celebrity contestant Rumer Willis as two of her bridesmaids.

Nyle DiMarco and Candace Cameron Bure were guests to the couple’s big day — Candace and Maks even shared a dance during the reception!

Peta was walked down the aisle by her father, and her dress was an ivory ball gown fit for a princess.

Maksim chose a stylish white jacket for his wedding ensemble — doesn’t he look so handsome?

After the wedding, the couple spent some time outside with their guests before moving indoors for the reception.

For their first dance, they didn’t show off like you might think a couple of people famous for their dancing skills would. Instead, they kept things simple.

Simple and adorable.

Speaking of adorable, Maks actually sang to Peta at one point.

Can you even handle how precious this whole thing sounds?

At one point during the reception, Peta left to change into her second gown of the night: a feathered dress that looked to be a bit easier to move around in.

It’s also worth noting that both Peta and Maks looked painfully happy in each and every photo from their wedding.

Sounds like a lovely day for lovely people, right?

It’s also pretty special since the wedding comes six months, nearly to the day, after they gave birth to their first child, a boy named Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy.

It was nearly a year before Shai was born that his parents got engaged, too — Maksim proposed to Peta in December of 2015.

There’s no word on if little Shai had a role in the wedding, nor are there any photos of him, but still, it all sounds very cute.

Congrats to the happy couple!


We Have So Many Questions About These PETA Posters

PETA has already tried to tell you that eating meat will shrink your son's penis.

But the animal rights organization is now here to explain why eating meat will also have a negative effect on your sex life.

Well… not "explain," really.

Instead, the organization has released a number of new posters that feature two lovers in bed with a farm animal.

What do these have to do with the argument that eating large quantities of red meat can lead to inflammation… which can, conceivably, produce erectile dysfunction?

That's what social media users want to know.

Check out the strange posters below and then enjoy a hearty laugh over how the Internet has reacted to them…

1. Don’t Have a Cow, People

Don’t have one in bed, at least. Otherwise, you may not be able to perform in bed. This is the message PETA thinks it’s sending with this poster.

2. Pig Out

Peta ad
There will be no pigging out on each other’s private parts when you overdo it with red meat. Got it, people?!?

3. What Are You, Chicken?

We’ll start with the reaction to this third poster, because it’s pretty fantastic. Keep scrolling…

4. How Do You Like Your Chicken?

How do you like your chicken
Any way we can get it, these guys appear to be saying.

5. What Say You, Chicken?

What say you chicken
Oh. Well okay then.

6. Sorry, Egg

Sorry egg
Better luck next time.
