The Real Housewives of Miami star, Joanna Krupa, proves she is more than a pretty face

Joanna Krupa, 33, was seen making her way through Miami airport looking not too glamorous dressed down in a white tank top, grey sweatpants and white flip-flops. She was accompanied by her pet pooch on a hot pink leash. The model and actress has appeared in Teeze, Shape, Maxim, FHM and has done Playboy. She also competed on Season 9 of Dancing with the Stars. The Real Housewives of Miami star has a cause that is close to her heart.

The Polish-born beauty is outspoken about her love for animals. With four dogs of her own, a King Charles, a Yorkshire terrier named Rugby, a mutt named Shaggy and the white dog seen on the leash at the airport, her world has gone to the dogs. She is outspoken about her love for animals and is an active spokesperson for PETA and she also supports the Humane Society of America. Recently she joined fellow activists Katie Cleary and actor Andy Dick to deliver a petition signed by 140,000 people demanding that the Kardashians stop selling fur in their stores and online.

In 2009, she caused quite a controversy by posing topless in a PETA ad clutching Rugby, the terrier, to her chest while holding a crucifix and wearing angel wings. The ad read: Be an Angel for Animals. Always Adopt. Never Buy.

When it comes to the things that matter in life, this is one stunning beauty who knows where her heart lies and stands up for what she believes in.
