'Love & Hip Hop' Sex Tape

Cripples Home Depot

NATIONAL SHOWER ROD SHORTAGE

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.

What was that shower rod made out of in the uncut version of Scarface?

That the one where they handcrafted the guy to it, then went at his skull with the chainsaw.

Saw it her ass is fake , ain't nobody real these days. The sex was nothing I haven't done with my 3 subs at home on a vanilla night. Just another sex tape to make someone famous for 15 minutes and Rude Boy to pound his undersized dick to . I know you see this Rude Boy. You always be trolling these news strips to get a cheap thrill after your mom goes to bed ;)

If you are a sexually active person, why is it such a big deal to watch others? I just don't get the big deal period about sex between adults.
