Eminem files a motion against The Real Housewives of Potomac members Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon’s opposing the trademark application filed for their Reasonably Shady podcast.
According to Rolling Stone, Marshall Mathers—claims his brand will be “damaged” if the trademark application gets approved. The filing later mentions that the “dominant portion” of Bryant and Dixon’s trademark is “identical” to Mathers’ “Shady” and “Slim Shady” trademarks. His attorney claims the pending trademark could lead the public to falsely believe Bryant and Dixon were “in some way connected or affiliated with” the rapper.
The Reasonably Shady podcast features conversations about being fearless women as they recount stories from their exciting lives. Topics include dating, relationships, marriage, entrepreneurs, motherhood, style, glam, current events and more.
The opposition comes weeks after Dixon and Bryant filed the trademark with the intent to sell products including beauty items and sweatshirts, as well as capitalize off of other “entertainment services,” like podcasts and live events.
Since launching in 2021, the reality stars have earned over 5 million downloads.
The battle for the real “Shady” trademark owner still pends litigation.
