'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.

You notice with all these vivid videos it's always the same room, carpet, beige walls, crappy furniture? Do they have a cheap apartment in the Valley they do all their filming in? And I guess Harvey is a partner in this trashy show since it's promoted on here every freakin day now.

Just My Opinion    

Stupid is..as stupid does. That is like me buying a fricking new or used condom that Mel Gibson had touched or used.

Ok, maybe Mel is not a good example, the dude don't believe in condoms, does he?

The saddest part of this entire story is that some loser thought of the idea and then actually took the time to write on a piece of paper, "Mimi shower rods" and then went to a store, put it on the display and then, the saddest part of all, took a picture and sent it to TMZ. It's horrible that someone is such a dipsh!t, loser and lowlife. I really wish I had this much free time on my hands as this loser does.

That is tasteless and vulgar. It took a shower rod sex tape to inspire some sexual creativity.. ridiculous. She looks like a whore. Not attractive.
