Michelle Cho, the PETA official whose sister Christina allegedly dumped flour all over Kim Kardashian, has come out in defense of her sibling's actions.

"I am not my sister's keeper," Michelle told E! in a statement, "but I love her and have seen her sacrifice a lot of herself as a terrific activist." She added that they work in different ways to stop the suffering of animals, but credited her involvement in the movement to her sister.

PETA has denied involvement in the incident, but said they will "defend the activist" should any legal action be taken against her.

"If Christina Cho is the person who sprinkled flour on Kim Kardashian," said Michelle, "we know Christina as a very kind, wonderful long time volunteer."

Kim's sister Khloe, who once posed for a PETA campaign, worked with Michelle on the 2008 ad. Khloe has since pulled her support from the organization.

PETA may have lost Khloe Kardashian, but they've gained teen bride Courtney Stodden, who stars in the animal rights organization's latest PSA.

"I wasn't really fond of eating meat and really anything with a face because I just felt like it was an awful thing to do," says the 17-year-old. "So just recently I switched to a vegetarian."

Stodden also boasted that she's never had a burger, and whored out her dog Bizarre for the PSA, who she "saturates with so much love."

If Kim Kardashian gets flour bombed for wearing fur, can we also flour bomb Stodden for wearing a rhinestone choker in 2012?

Khloe Kardashian, who once posed for a PETA campaign, has decided to dump the animal rights organization after it was revealed that the woman who flour bombed Kim Kardashian often works with PETA.

The organization released a statement denying their involvement in the incident, but Christina Cho, the flour-wielding perpetrator, has frequently staged anti-fur protests for them.

"I've been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me," wrote Khloe on her blog. "As you all know, I don't condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that."

In 2008, the reality star was featured in PETA's "Fur? I'd Rather Go Naked" campaign.

Khloe concluded that while she is still anti-fur, she will no longer suport the animal rights organization.

"Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution," she wrote, "and I won't be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise."

Kim Kardashian's flour bomber has been identified as prominent PETA activist Christina Cho.

While the animal rights organization has denied being responsible for the dust up, TMZ found that Cho has a storied history with PETA, and often stages anti-fur protests in their name.

In 2010, she stole the spotlight from fashion designer Donna Karan at an event and publicly asked her to stop using fur.

That same year, Cho won an award from PETA for her work. Her sister Michelle is also a top member of the organization in Los Angeles.

Last week at a red carpet event, Cho ran up to Kardashian and dumped a bag of white flour on her. The reality star is reportedly planning to press charges.

HBO's horse-racing drama Luck has been canceled after a third thoroughbred died during production of the show that stars Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte.

"It is with heartbreak that executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann together with HBO have decided to cease all future production on the series Luck," said HBO in a statement.

Yesterday, the series agreed to suspend all filming that involved animals after a horse had to be euthanized on the set the day before. The horse was being led back to a racetrack stable when it reared, and fell backwards, suffering a serious head injury.

HBO has been facing scrutiny from animal rights groups since the series began filming in 2010, and two other horses were injured and euthanized on the set.

Days before the third horse's death, PETA fired off a letter to HBO executives, warning that multiple sources had alleged that appropriate measures were not being taken to ensure the safety of the horses.

The last episode -- season one's finale -- will air March 25.
