Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino is accused of selling fake bags online.

According to MTO News, a group of angry customers contacted the FBI to report Zampino for allegedly selling bootleg designer bags at designer prices.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills "friend" reportedly sells the high end bags on her online boutique called Sheree Elizabeth Boutique.

"I take great pleasure in buying & selecting each item offered at Sheree Elizabeth Boutique," she writes on her website. "My mission is to provide each customer access to a variety of coveted styles, designs, and trends in order to create a unique shopping experience that you won't find anywhere else!"

But Zampino's clients complained that she sold them cheap Chinese knock off handbags which look similar to the authentic bags but with noticeable differences.

It's illegal and a federal offense to knowingly sell bootleg designer handbags. The offense is punishable by prison time and a stiff fine.

Zampino, 54, is actor Will Smith's first wife. They were married from 1992 to 1995 and they share a son named Trey Smith, 29.

She also has a daughter by her second husband, Terrell Fletcher. Zampino and Fletcher separated in 2014 after 7 years of marriage.

Zampino responded to the allegations in a video on her Instagram page.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is taking on shops that sell leather and fur, such as Urban Outfitter, by launching an online store featuring goods made from faux human skin and teeth.

PETA's online shop, Urban Outraged, features clothing and accessories "made of the finest leather — that on second look, reveal human faces on the jackets, human teeth on the shoes, and human blood oozing from the bags," according to a press release.

The merchandise featured in the ads are designed to look similar to Buffalo Bill's gruesome human suit from 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs."

Items sold on Urban Outraged feature names of "slaughtered people" whose skin and teeth were used to "fabricate" the goods.

A human "leather" jacket features faces and a suitcase is embellished with human nipples.

The description for the "Dwayne Weekender bag" includes an image showing the parts of the slain man's body that were used to stitch the bag together.

"This bag is perfect for a trip to the beach, because Dwayne loved the sand and lying in the sun— barely any additional tanning work was necessary!"

PETA defended the bizarre online shop. "A cow's skin belongs to her, and she feels fear and pain in a slaughterhouse every bit as much as you or I would," PETA's executive vice president, Tracy Reiman, said in an exclusive statement to The NY Post.

It's hard to find good help these days. Customers who purchased Kylie Jenner's new swimsuit line are complaining about the "shoddy" quality of the line on TikTok.

TikTok users point out the "cheap" and "flimsy" material used to make the products.

Kylie can't be expected to supervise the sweat shop workers who make her swimsuits. So there will be slight imperfections in the workmanship.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star released her new swimwear line, Kylie Swim, earlier this month, and bragged on Twitter that some styles had already sold out.

However, those customers who flocked to purchase the revealing sarong swimsuits say the new line reveals a little too much skin.

Many disappointed customers are demanding their money back and the complaints are piling up online.

Among the complaints posted by early consumers include claims that the material is "paper thin" and virtually see-through. Customers complain about the shoddy stitching and shapeless sarongs.

The wave of negative reviews dropped Wednesday - the same day Jenner's other new line, Kylie Baby, launched.

One reviewer wrote, "I get better swimsuits at (discount chain store) Target."

Another woman said she paid $250 for two sarongs - a pink two-piece and a yellow cut-out monokini. She refused to try them on for the camera, explaining the flimsy material "just shows everything".

"Don't even get me started on the quality of this one piece," the TikTok user added in her scathing review.

She rated Kylie Swim a 2 out of 10 stars, giving points only for accurate sizing and adjustable buttons.

Another woman was angry about the see-thru material, writing: "You need to be waxed, lasered... If you have any hair down there, it’s gonna show."

Still no word from Kylie about the mounting complaints and demands for refunds.

She is currently expecting her second child with rapper Travis Scott.

Gwyneth Paltrow made a boatload of money when her entire inventory of vagina-scented candles sold out within minutes on her Goop website.

Paltrow, who is known for selling bizarre items on Goop, packaged the candles in jars with B&W labels that read, "This Smells Like My Vagina."

The actress describes her vaginal odor as "a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent."

Shoppers took her word for it. They snapped up the candles at a whopping $75 each! The 10.5 ounce vagina candles sold out quickly, according to The Blast.

Paltrow says the candles are made with "a mixture of cedar, geranium, citrusy bergamot, Damask Rose and ambrette seed that puts owners and their guests in the mind state of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth."

Paltrow, 47, told People magazine her inspiration for the candles came one day when she and her friend, perfumer Douglas Little, were testing fragrances. Paltrow sniffed one fragrance and shouted, "Uhhh... this smells like a vagina!"

Walmart has apologized for selling a Christmas sweater that featured a Santa Claus who was jolly for all the wrong reasons.

Walmart pulled the sweaters from its online inventory and apologized after customers complained on Twitter.com on Saturday.

The sweater featured Santa Claus seated at a table preparing to snort three lines of what appears to be powdered cocaine. The sweater was emblazoned with the words "Let It Snow."

Twitter users argued, even if Walmart didn't notice the offensive image on the sweater, how could they miss the product description: "Santa really likes to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A, Colombian snow."

"Walmart, explain why was this okay? Ever! Who was the target market?" tweeted one irate user.

Walmart also removed other offensive Christmas sweaters that featured a partially nude Santa sitting on a porcelain throne and a Santa spanking Mrs. Claus.

In a statement to Global News, Walmart apologized profusely for "any unintended offense this may have caused" and attributed the blame to a "third-party seller" on Walmart Canada.

Walmart said the product did not "represent Walmart's values and have no place on our website."

A television commercial is causing mass confusion among young people who apparently missed or misunderstood the ad's tagline at the end.

The commercial opens with a pre-teen boy telling his father, "I think I got my period." The next scene shows a man rolling over in bed to reveal a bloodstain on the sheet under him.

The commercial also shows men dealing with their periods in public restrooms and locker rooms. One man asks another man for a Tampon, and a high school boy nervously drops his pantyliners in front of a girl, who asks him if he needs her help.

The commercial caused confusion among young people on social media who questioned how boys and men can menstruate.

Many missed the ad's tagline at the end of the commercial - 'If we all had them, maybe we'd be more comfortable with them.'

But even those who read the tagline were baffled. Since when are we women ashamed of having periods?

Some viewers believe the people behind the commercial are men who assume women are ashamed of having periods.

Thinx claims to make underwear that absorbs your period.

"We're on a mission to empower every body [sic] with innovative solutions and social change," the company states.

The company's Twitter page promotes their undergarments under the hashtag #IfWeAllHadPeriods.

One YouTube viewer wrote: "I think [the ad is] mostly trying to deconstruct the 'stigma' about periods. I'd personally never heard of period shaming, but apparently some people think its a thing."

Neiman Marcus is selling asymmetric jeans that feature one wide leg and one skinny leg for affluent fashionistas with medical conditions that cause swelling in one leg.

The high-waisted denim jeans are the brainchild of designer Ksenia Schnaider who created the garments to address the needs of stylish women who have medical conditions that cause edema or swelling in one leg.

The jeans feature a skinny right leg and a flared left leg. But the jeans can also be ordered with a skinny left leg and flared right leg. The jeans are designed to fashionably conceal swelling in one leg.

Although the asymmetric jeans are designed to accommodate women with medical conditions, anyone can purchase the jeans to wear as a trendy fashion statement.

The $462 jeans can be bought in a medium blue color, ranging from sizes x-small to large.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes turned an insult into a money-making opportunity by selling t-shirts and sweatshirts featuring her mugshots from an arrest in the early 1990s. The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star was inspired to wear her mugshots on a shirt after co-star Sheree Whitfield mentioned her old arrest for boosting clothes from a shopping mall.

"Growing up without my mother or father i experienced many growing pains but without them, i could not be who i am or have accomplished the things that i have today," NeNe wrote in an Instagram post showing her proudly wearing a black shirt featuring her mugshots. "Your past does NOT determine your future," she added.
