Real Housewives Star’s Store Vandalized by Animal Rights Activists
One Real Housewives star’s retail dream was sullied by activists reportedly protesting the clothing store’s selling of animal fur.
Canadian news outlet The Providence reports that the outside of Real Housewives of Vancouver star Jody Claman’s store, Glass House Couture, was doused in paint and spray painted on Thursday, March 21. The act was allegedly done by members of the Animal Liberation Front; the letters “ALF” was tagged on the white doors of the clothing shop.
But Jody insists the deed was no coincidence, and she points a finger at RHoV co-star Mary Zilba, her nemesis on the reality show.
“I am being targeted because she told people I sell fur [in the store],” Jody Claman said.
While Glass House Couture does sell fur, Jody says most of the items are vintage or come from places like Finland, where animals are “treated ethically,” according to her.
There’s no concrete evidence tying the ALF to the vandalism, but a spokesman for the organization in the United States says the graffiti on the doors of the shop make it pretty clear it was the work of the animal rights group.
Still shaken by the incident, Jody told The Providence that it was unfair for such a thing to happen because of things said about her store on Real Housewives of Vancouver.
