Bravo executive and Watch What Happens Live host, Andy Cohen, has thrown his support behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Shereé Whitfield’s clothing line, and fans have had plenty to say about it.
The She By Shereé clothing line officially launched last week—after the RHOA finale episode—which featured a long-awaited fashion show. Shereé, who announced her design venture 14 years ago, finally pulled off a fashion show and offered the garments to the public. The launch did not go smoothly, as the brand’s website crashed and the reality star was slammed for marketing clothing that looked like overpriced Amazon or Shein knock-offs.
Andy took to Twitter to post a photo of himself rocking a gray hoodie printed with the She By Shereé logo, on Monday, September 5.
“I got mine….. #SheByShereé @IamSheree,” he captioned the snap.
Fans flooded his post with reactions and opinions, with many referencing the issues that plagued Shereé’s product launch.
One fan quipped—“Meanwhile nobody else can buy it.”
Another noted—“Yours was free! Smdh.”
A third asked—“But did you order it from the site Andy?”
One viewer snarked—“Congratulations. It’s a one of a kind since no one else can buy them.”
Another person pointed out—“Andy you are very kind to these women always helping them promote their ideas. But with She by Sheree it’s time to walk away. She did not design these clothes they look like clothes she got from China or Shein slap her logo on them & is selling 4 mega profit.”
The sweatshirt Andy wore in his Twitter pic is being offered for $252.
Some fans weren’t buying what he was selling and called out the Bravo bigwig.
One fan tweeted—“Look like he was forced to put it on.”
Another agreed—“The tweet. The caption. The face. All of it is problematic. Imma just leave it there.”
Some fans took aim at the design and quality of the items.
One person wrote—“That junk is so basic it looks like it came from those bulk order promo companies where you get your logo printed on whatever you want in very short order.”
Another user jabbed—“…looks like the free sweats provided by service express at any westin in the world.”
Shereé, 52, told shoppers in a statement that the website crashed after going live due to “overwhelming interest” and an “influx of love.” The site was briefly back online on Tuesday but went down again on Wednesday.
Shereé’s accomplishment trended on Twitter last month, as the reality star was roasted for not walking her talk while building a brand she endlessly plugged on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Fans have watched the ups and downs of Shereé’s slow road to success since RHOA Season 2. Shereé’s first fashion show flopped, and fans later reported that there were no pieces up for sale after the Bravo star managed to put out a collection. In 2020, Shereé announced that her brand was up and running, releasing a video to promote her new focus on athleisure.
