You Saw This Coming: Kenya Moore To Profit Off Of “Gone With The Wind Fabulous” Saying By Launching Shirt Line

If we’ve learned anything from reality TV, it’s that you can clearly profit from foolery. Aside from the shows themselves, the stars on them have gone on to try and make money off of their favorite sayings and zingers. I’m sure you remember Evelyn Lozada and her whole “non-mutha****ing factor” shirts, Tami Roman and her “B***h, B***h, and More B***h” tops, and Nene Leakes and her “I’m very rich b***h” line. Now, Kenya Moore of Real Housewives of Atlanta infamy is trying to milk some money out of her “Gone With The Wind Fabulous” saying she introduced after her argument with Porsha Stewart by launching a T-shirt line that says such. And if that’s not enough, there’s also “#TWIRL” shirts, “40 Plus And Fabulous,” “Detroit Barbie,” “Hold On To Your Weave,” “Just Say No To Coochie Crack,” and more. The shirts range from $14.99-$23.99, go from small to XXL, and she even has a few for men.

Serious question though: Who really buys these shirts other than the creator’s family and friends? What 40-year-old woman is really trying to go online and order a basic T-shirt covered in glittery writing? I’m not trying to be rude, because I can honestly respect the hustle, but the way folks come out with T-shirt lines and pretend they’re dropping big clothing labels these days expecting people to really take it seriously has confused me. But if you are indeed Team Kenya, you can pick up her shirts, long-sleeved and short, on her website, “Kenya Moore Fabulous Online Store.” Check out the site to see the full “line.” But if she has success with this, then I must say that K. Michelle would be a fool not to come out with a “Don’t Shake Unless You Wanna Get Shook” shirt “line” of her own, because I still find myself laughing at that hot mess of a saying to this day. Hey, it wouldn’t hurt her to hop on the T-shirt money making bandwagon too at this point.

What do you think of the shirts?

    why are most of these folks black?

  • Albert

    Other than Clint Eastwood, no one here is talented.

  • kksd

    her shirts and website look cheaply done. #Child-boo

  • thedoggonetruth

    Yep, a lawsuit is in the wind.

  • Kenya Has Severe Dry Mouth

    Next she needs to team up with Gatorade and make some tees that say “Quench your thirst”.Lawd knows her cotton mouth behind could use a drink…

  • IllyPhilly

    C’mon, does anybody ever buy these celeb shirts, bags, ear cream, tampons, and whatever else they push?

    • chanela

      NO!

    • Nikki

      Honestly? I buy books written by celebs. I can’t wait to read Superhead’s tell-all!

      This is a shirt I would wear when doing a good spring cleaning. I won’t leave the house in it, so I’m not buying.

        Super head got another tell all?? damn how much ish does she have to tell

        • Nikki

          Yep! She’s writing it now. It’s about her relationship with Lil Wyane, and it’s entitled “How to Make Love to a Martian”

          • IllyPhilly

            Ew.

  • bigdede

    Yeah I really doubt she can use Gone With the Wind without permission from the estate. She will be getting sued soon.

  • PExum

    I for one am not interested in a Tee Shirt named after a 1938 film set on a cotton plantation with a sister named Mammy (I do applaud Ms. McDaniels Award during that time). Kenya is so self absorbed REALITY escapes her……Yes, this is funny & Gone With The Wind CRAZY not fabulous!

    • Kenya Has Severe Cry Mouth

      She needs a shirt that says “delusions on grandeur” with a ring on it…

  • NYE2012

    I see a strongly worded letter in her future from the Estate of Margaret Mitchell. In the meantime there will be several who purchase her t-shirts.

  • SexNdaCity

    Can’t knock her hustle. I’m sure someone will buy.

  • :)

    I’m not knocking her at all. I respect her hustle. We all have to eat right? So if she wants to make money off of her weird sayings, then go ahead. I will admit, I lmao when she was twirling and saying “I’m gone with the wind fabulous.” I thought it was funny as hell.

    Don’t despise small beginnings; T shirts today; clothing, accessories, and more tomorrow. Not a Kenya fan, but as a small business owner, I see her vision.
