What do you get when you combine chicks and "Empire"? A lawsuit.
Alta Tseng and Jessica Corbin claim they launched their Fempire brand in 2004 to encourage female empowerment and promote female trends. They cemented their brand by snagging a trademark for what has become a mini-empire, which includes apparel and blogs.
Along came Lifetime, which launched a slate of women-driven shows it refers to as "Fempire."
You know the drill. Alta and Jessica want Lifetime to stop ... and, of course, they want moolah.
