For those of you who didn't watch her reality show (which is the majority of you!), 'celebrity' stylist Rachel Zoe loves to say the words 'bananas' and 'I die'.
Well, a devoted Rachel Zoe fan (yes, they do exist) found out the hard way that she has those two common sayings trademarked - or so her lawyer wants us to believe.
Dayum, Gwen Stefani, you missed out! Why didn't you trademark 'bananas'? We all know your song Hollaback Girl was the thing that really put 'bananas' on the map!
Anywayz, New York based artist Christopher Sauvé whipped up some t-shirts with those words to pay homage to his main girl only to be slapped down by the Raisinfaced one's lawyers. Apparently, since Rachel owns those trademarked words, you can't use them without her permission!
The smacked down victim said in a statement, "As a huge fan of Rachel Zoe I feel very sad that I couldn't express myself artistically with 'bananas'. But I have come up with this new design based on my favorite things from the 1980s… She uses celebrities every day to promote herself, and then she won't let a poor artist in the city do it in a huge recession with all these layoffs?"
Just die, bananas!
