Eminem Opposes Real Housewives Trademark Request

According to court documents obtained by New York’s Page Six, on February 14 Eminem filed an opposition to a Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon’s trademark application for their Reasonably Shady podcast.

Born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, the superstar rapper argued that his brand would be “damaged” if the Real Housewives of Potomac stars were granted the trademark for their show.

The 50-year-old musician also claimed that giving the Reasonably Shady trademark to the podcast may “cause confusion in the minds of consumers”, who have known Mathers by his professional monikers of Slim Shady and Shady since the late 1990s.

The rapper owns the trademark for the term “Shady” for use on merchandise.

Weeks prior to Eminem’s objection, Gizelle and Robyn had filed their trademark with the intent of using “Reasonably Shady” on merchandise including water bottles, lip gloss, sweatshirts, hats, jackets, and socks.

Addressing such topics as dating, relationships, marriage, entrepreneurs, motherhood, style, and current events, the podcast has received 5,000,000 downloads in less than two years.

Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are required to respond to the filing by 26 March.
