Is JWOWW's Filthy Couture clothing line the shortest-lived celebrity label ever? After just one season, the Jersey Shore star has been forced to shutter her fashion company because of trademark issues. "Money needed to be returned to the people who had ordered clothing," a source tells Radar Online. "She couldn't handle the clothing line and didn't really have the help she needed. She could have given her line a new name but instead just let it go. She's no longer designing cloths for her line and I'm not sure if she'll ever do it again." [Radar Online]
