Porsha Williams Tells Teyana Taylor to Have a Seat
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
The other day Teyana Taylor rained on Porsha Williams’ parade when she threatened to take legal action on the reality star’s upcoming T-shirt line considering she believes Porsha stole the name.
Well Porsha says Teyana doesn’t legally own the word “Unbothered,” so she’s confused as to why she even try to put her on the spot on Instagram.
On the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” Porsha says:
“Well, you know I always remain unbothered. I always say ‘unbothered’ just like everybody else been saying unbothered, fleek and everything else on Instagram for a long time and you know, like she said in her comment. I do follow Tatiana or whatever. I follow a lot of ppl that are in entertainment.
“I try to support you know a lot of young black women out here doing it in music. I do follow her but I had no idea she had a clothing line. And I really don’t have a problem with her having a clothing line named ‘unbothered’ because my t-shirt is just a t-shirt line. It’s not an actual clothing line. And I just wish Tatiana would have consulted her legal team; if she would really have been unbothered because then she would have known that she can’t trademark the name, the word unbothered anyway.
“So I just thought it was a little distasteful for her to put a comment on Instagram, as opposed to DM’ing me. She could have just DM’ed me….I just thought it got blown way out of portion.”
Porsha goes on to say she has no beef with Teyana and she wishes her the best.

In related news, Porsha also got Teyana together on Instagram. Apparently after Teyana posted proof of her registering “Unbothered” as a LLC to Instagram, Porsha then took to Instagram to let Teyana know that registering “Unbothered” as a business name isn’t the same thing as trademarking/owning the term (screenshot obtained by The Shade Room):
Teyana has since removed the letter from her Instagram account. Bloop.
