Elisabetta Canalis Bares All for PETA

It’s never too soon to start campaigning for DWTS votes if you ask me. The Season 13 premiere of “Dancing With The Stars” is only a week away, and the Italian actress is trying to make sure the American public knows who she is. What better way to grab attention than to get naked. Sex sells, as the old adage says. But being hot will only get you so far in the competition though. Hopefully, her professional partner has vastly improved Canalis’ dancing skills since this awkward dancing performance in Italy earlier this year.

Up until the announcement Elisabetta Canalis was joining the cast for ABC’s dancing competition, she was best known for being George Clooney’s red carpet arm candy. Now that the perpetual bachelor has traded Canalis for leggy blonde Stacy Keibler, the Italian stunner has to create a name for herself in North America. Elisabetta is the latest celeb to participate in PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur”. Here’s why she joined the campaign:

“I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction. That is what is required to keep people’s attention on such a brutal practice. These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion.” See added. “Don’t buy fur. Even a little trim – your gloves or your bag or your jackets …. You must remember that animals don’t have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up.”

Elisabetta Canalis’ PETA Shoot

Arguably, she’s probably the least known celebrity commodity on this season’s cast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed she makes a grand splashy debut on the Season 13 premiere. She’s one of the people I’m rooting for. Early reports say she’s the shyest out of the bunch due to the language barrier. Hopefully the American viewing public doesn’t mistake shyness for a cold bitchy attitude.
