Robin Arcuri is gorgeous. I know her through my gorgeous friend Sarah Afshar. I met her once when she did an animal cruelty event in California. She definitely cares for animals and the woman is very brilliant too.

I love Robin Arcuri. She's so stunning and does so much for animal rights. I saw her in NYC at the PETA event where she laid in the hot sun half naked with faux cuts. It hit a button that animals are mistreated. She does so much for animal rights and I respect any woman that lays out in the hot scorching sun for animals.
