Maria Bartiromo Vs. PETA

0809bartiromo.jpgSo the upcoming issue of More (sample article: “How To Be A Cougar“) is doing a feature on female movers and shakers over 40 for their next issue. Maria Bartiromo is doing a photospread for it that features her wearing a coat with fur cuffs. Not only that, but she tells More that “the fur cuffs give it just the right amount of glamour.”

Of course, the animal rights activists aren’t happy. Michael McGraw of PETA: “She looks morally bankrupt in that fur. All that time around the closing bell must be turning her into a real ding-a-ling.”

Now Bartiromo’s PR folks are backhandling and claiming that the “Money Honey” made a mistake by wearing that coat for the shoot. Oh well.
