She consumes and promotes milk products. Just look at this photo:

I am so disillusioned to find out that she is not a vegan as she supports, promotes and perhaps also consumes dairy. Another hero has fallen.

They're not made using animal skin.
She designs a fashion line with JP Jones made up of these non-leather cloths that have a leather appearance.

She's very cool but does she not wear leather trousers? Or are they imitation?

She is awsome and so is her restaurant! I ate there and it is really good and filling food. Even my dad (who isn't veggie) commented on how great everything tasted-we both recommend the fries which are better than any fast food joint. I love her because she could have gone the rich rocker route and opened the"Vegiterranean" in NYC or LA. But she went back to her hometown and opened it. And she is also a big supporter of Akron (where I'm from too) and always makes a point to talk about it wherever she goes. She is a great role model for girls since she sticks to her beliefs and doesn't forget her roots.
