Real Housewife Star Under Fire From PETA

It's always fun to catch up on what the Real Housewives (former or present) are up to, but this one takes the cake.

Or muffin, in this case.

Former Real Housewives of New York City star Cindy Barshop now has a line of fox fur merkins available at her salons.

That is not a typo.

Yes, the new furry accessory is making vagazzling so 2011. The only way to outfit your lady bits is with fur ... you know, after you've had all your pubic hair waxed off.

Makes zero sense, right?

Barshop's brainchild is a line of colorful fur and feather merkins that really snazz up the joint -- think of it as a pubic toupee.

(I just threw up in my mouth a little.)

Because who couldn't use a little bit of pizzazz down there?

Of course, a specialist has to apply the fuzzy pieces at Barshop's Completely Bare spas for a low-low price: the "Foxy Bikini" is $225 and the "Carnivale" is $195.

PETA, rightfully so, is pretty pissed over the fur accessory, while the rest of the world is pissed because this stupid idea is getting so much attention.

Huffington Post has the latest statement from PETA, where president Ingrid Newkirk puts it all out there: "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."

Barshop responded: "I am not an extremist. I don't believe in cruelty to animals and I don't eat red meat, but that doesn't mean I hate those that do. The last I heard, the word c*nt was used by bullies in high school."

What do you think of the fur merkins? Sexy or stupid?
