In a plot twist that has us all on the edge of our seats, rap legend Eminem has thrown down the gauntlet in his ongoing trademark battle with Real Housewives of Potomac (RHOP) stars Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon. The Detroit rapper has reportedly filed for a protective order, seeking respite from attending an in-person deposition.

The bone of contention? Reasonably Shady, the name of Bryant and Dixon's weekly podcast. Em claims that the name, reminiscent of his iconic “Slim Shady” moniker, could lead to serious consumer confusion.

According to legal documents filed by Eminem's team, his attorneys argue that sitting for a deposition at this stage is “premature and procedurally improper.” They also note that Bryant and Dixon have yet to serve Eminem with a notice of deposition, which is a necessary prerequisite to move forward with the process. The filing even goes so far as to call the deposition “unduly burdensome.”

This trademark tussle began when Eminem initially opposed the RHOP stars' trademark application for their Reasonably Shady podcast back on February 14th.

But wait, there's more! Reasonably Shady isn't the only media platform resembling Em's infamous nickname. His daughter, Hailie Jade, has also entered the podcasting scene in 2022 with her own show, aptly named Just a Little Shady.

As we eagerly await the next chapter in this trademark tale, let's take a moment to ponder the implications. What does this battle mean for the music industry as a whole? How will it impact Eminem's brand? And most importantly, how many more Shady-inspired podcasts are in our future? Stay tuned, folks!
