  1. Kelly, do you really know what PETA is all about??? It means “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals”!!!!!

    YOU can’t just decide if your going to be a supporter one day and not the next! NO matter who you are, if your rich or not. Really get a grip, your talking like a moron with this whole “woe is me bull crap”….YOU don’t ever make sense. Will you ever get a grip on reality?
    By the way…….PETA’s Mission Statement……hope you understand, if you don’t there is a website you can actually go to if you would like to actually research it……
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 2 million members and supporters.

    PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

    PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.


  2. OMG. I am staring at Kelly’s ex hubby on the teley. He’s in a documentary… OMG. I had no idea…. She makes so much more sense to me now.


  3. Kelly the hipocrite is one of the “mean girls” of RHoNY. It makes me sick how she is always making nasty comments and saying mean things to people, to their face and behind their back, and then talks about anti-bullying. She is a huge bully, She loves it when she can get the brunettes to gang up on one of the blondes, and snickers with glee to herself, or whoever will listen, when one of the brunettes is being mean. She thinks her child like behaviour is charming, but on a woman over 40, it is irritating. I think that the brunettes tolerate her just so that they can have another member of their team, but in no way can they respect her. Jill went from saying Kelly talks crazy talk to being her friend around the same time Jill became Bethany’s enemy. This is because Jill needs to have a certain number of people on her side. Basically, for Jill, an enemy of Jill’s enemy is Jill’s friend by default.
