The shade is real.
Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are fighting back against Eminem’s motion to block their trademark application for the name of their podcast, “Reasonably Shady.”
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, the “Real Housewives of Potomac” stars asked for the “Lose Yourself” rapper’s opposition, which he filed last month, to be denied.
Bryant, 52, and Dixon, 43, said in their response on March 1 that they “admit that there is no relationship, authorization, or consent” between themselves and Eminem, 50, “regarding the marks at issue.”
The reality stars’ attorney, Andrea Evans, tells Page Six exclusively, “Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant deny any likelihood of confusion between Mather’s trademarks and their Reasonably Shady mark.
“We are prepared to defend any allegations against them regarding their intellectual property.”
In February 2022, the Bravolebrities filed to trademark their podcast’s name with the intent to begin selling products such as eye shadow, water bottles, lip gloss, sweatshirts, paddleboards, jackets and socks.
However, last month, Eminem — whose real name is Marshall Mathers — said that he believed his brand would be “damaged” if Bryant and Dixon obtained a trademark for “Reasonably Shady.”

The “8 Mile” star argued “Reasonably Shady” could “cause confusion in the minds of consumers,” who have known him by the nicknames Slim Shady and Shady since the late ’90s.
Eminem has exclusively used both “Slim Shady” and “Shady” for entertainment services since 1998 and owns the trademark for “Shady” to use on merch.
Bryant and Dixon launched their “Reasonably Shady” podcast in 2021 and have gained a tremendous amount of success alongside their regular appearances on “RHOP.”
In fact, just last month, the ladies celebrated garnering more than five million downloads.
“SOOO EXCITED! Less than two years and our little @reasonablyshady podcast has over 5 MILLION downloads 🤩,” Bryant captioned a Feb. 15 Instagram post.
“Thank you so much for listening! Thank you for the love and support! We totally appreciate being apart of the @blackeffect family 🎉 Thank you @iheartradio 🎊.”
