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?
