Eminem files opposition to Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon’s podcast

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

Eminem filed an opposition on Feb. 14 against Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon’s trademark application for “Reasonably Shady,” the name of their podcast, according to docs obtained by Page Six.

In the docs, the “Lose Yourself” rapper — whose real name is Marshall Mathers — says he believes his brand will be “damaged” if the “Real Housewives of Potomac” stars are issued the trademark for their broadcast.

He also said “Reasonably Shady” can “cause confusion in the minds of consumers,” who have known him by his monikers Slim Shady and Shady since the late ’90s.

Eminem, 50, has exclusively used the name “Slim Shady” and “Shady” for entertainment services since 1998 and owns the trademark for “Shady” to use on merch.

Eminem’s objection came weeks after Dixon, 43, and Bryant, 52, filed to trademark their podcast’s name with the intent to begin selling products — such as water bottles, lip gloss, sweatshirts, hats, jackets and socks.

Reps for Bryant, Dixon and Eminem did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

The reality stars’ podcast has gained success since it launched in 2021. Dixon and Bryant have conversations about dating, relationships, marriage, entrepreneurs, motherhood, style, glam, current events and more.

Just last week, the ladies celebrated the show receiving 5 million downloads in less than two years.

“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 🎊.”

Dixon and Bryant have not publicly responded to Eminem’s opposition. However, the ladies must respond to the “Stan” rapper’s request by March 26.
