Well, you knew Wendy Williams wasn't afraid to speak her mind. The only difference is that now the outgoing talk-show host will be doing it using her body instead of words.

She's reportedly the latest celeb to participate in PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign, which has previously featured Eva Mendes, George Clooney's ex Elisabetta Canalis, Bethenny Frankel, Nia Long and Khloe Kardashian. According to the New York Post, a "sexy image of well-proportioned Williams will appear on a billboard in a campaign that will launch the week after thanksgiving."

"Wendy used to wear furs, and all types of leathers and more," said a friend of the talk-show host, "but she's had a change of heart." Williams was expected last night at a PETA event at The Standard. We got a sneak peek at her speech, which said, "PETA's legendary ... campaign has turned a lot of heads and changed a lot of minds -- including mine. I, like many people, was unaware of how animals lived and died for their fur, and I wore it without thinking much about it, until PETA came along ... I'm thrilled to star in PETA's next naked campaign."
