'Love & Hip Hop' Sex Tape

Cripples Home Depot

NATIONAL SHOWER ROD SHORTAGE

4/17/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Love and Hip Hop Sex Tape Shower Rod
Demand is going through the roof for gymnastics-strength shower rods -- all thanks to "Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust's sex tape acrobatics -- and Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, and Walmart are struggling to keep up.

We called employees at each of the major retailers (from Georgia to Cali) and we're getting the same story -- ever since the trailer for Mimi's sex tape came out, people have been racing to purchase their own super-strong shower rods to recreate the Mimi experience.

And supplies are running out -- a customer at one Home Depot in Georgia tells us, they were totally sold out of Mimi-strength shower rods.

This is a real thing -- a Twitter search for "Mimi shower rod" shows an endless list of people trying to get their hands on one. There's even a Twitter account dedicated to it (@MimiShowerRod). And don't even get us started on the Vine videos.

We reached out to officials at Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, and Target -- no word back so far.

I'm really confused as to why You all are soo upset because MiMi did a porno. Seriously ppl so what??... She's a grown ass woman and you aren't forced to watch nor will it be accessible to your children or her daughter so again I'm confused...Calling her a whores is Disguting...just as disgusting as me saying I'm Pretty sure your mothers and daughters done worse...

You expect us to believe everyone is running out buying shower curtains so try can get banged from behind like trash in a sex tape? You are such liars. I don't believe you called those stores for a second. How much were you paid by the participants to keep a sex tape in the news do try can end up like the Kardashians? Besides, not even black People watch black People porn. No one wants to see that
