Abercrombie & Fitch Wants Jersey Shore’s “The Situation” And Other Cast Members To Shop Somewhere Else

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is concerned that having Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino seen in its clothing could cause “significant damage” to the company’s image…So they’re offering him money to stop.

You don’t see this happen every day: A TV show that’s so popular (perhaps for all the wrong reasons) that a retail wants the cast to shop somewhere else – in fear that it’s destroying their brand identity. But Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is concerned that having Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino seen in its clothing could cause “significant damage” to the company’s image… So they’re offering him money to stop.

I can’t tell what kind of shorts the Situation is wearing here. That’s how Abercrombie & Fitch likes it.

According to the Associated Press: “Abercrombie says a connection to The Situation goes against the ‘aspirational nature’ of its brand and may be “distressing” to customers. The Ohio-based retailer says it has offered a ‘substantial payment’ to Sorrentino and producers of the MTV show so he’ll wear something else.”

The retailer is making cash offers to the other cast members as well. On one hand, you have to hand it to the brand for standing up for their corporate image. On the other hand, now the Jersey Shore cast is making money for doing something that’s even more ‘nothing’ than actually living their lives on the show? On a third hand (a third hand? I’m exhausted already) it’s a free country, and when you become a popular clothier you have to understand that sometimes people you don’t wearing your duds are going to do so anyway.

So, who wins here? Everyone… The Jersey Shore cast potentially gets money, or they just walk away with the publicity, and Abercrombie gets publicity and reinforces their message about what they want their brand to be abvout…all over the media, without spending their ad dollars. If they truly fork over cash to the Jersey Shore cast, then maybe they’re slightly less rich, but I wouldn’t worry about their financial picture. Have you seen how much their shorts cost? Shorts that look like they’ve already been worn?

These ladies are here for the wham, bam thank you glam.

While each housewives franchise carries its own unique sense of opulence, it seems like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills really take glam to the next level. That’s partly why we love those Beverly Hills biddies so much though! They spare no expense for their lavish parties, breathtaking vacations and especially, their over the top looks. Erika Girardi alone has admitted to spending $40,000 a month to keep her appearance looking so radiant. It seems like with each passing year the ladies take glam to the next level and this season is no different. In a sneak peek released by Bravo, Denise Richards, Garcille Beauvais, Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards, Sutton Stracke, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave all look like a million bucks in their season 10 reunion looks.

Check out the glamorous looks below!

Peyton Manker created a coronavirus-inspired prom dress after her dad told her about an interesting scholarship contest. The contest guidelines were simple; make an entire prom dress out of only duct tape. The Illinois senior spent over 400-hours detailing her masterpiece and created shoes, a mask, a purse and accessories to match. The dress is filled with intricate portraits displaying frontline workers, people in masks and even a tribute to the graduating class. Her purse is designed to look like a coronavirus cell, which you know we will see on every shelf at H&M in six months. No word on whether Manker won the scholarship but her dress has definitely caught the attention of the internet.
