The girls from MTV's series Teen Mom are doing whatever they can to drag out their fifteen minutes. Kailyn Lowry, one of the mothers from Teen Mom 2 (the second season debuts on MTV December 3) isn't going the route of writing a book or trying to become a model, though: she's having her toddler son Isaac "launch" his "own" clothing line. Isaac's line, The Isaac Elliot Collection, is a part of a kids' clothing company called Little Miss Cupcake.
Little Miss Cupcake doesn't have a website or any ecommerce: the company seems to operate entirely via Facebook, where users browse photos and then email about which items they'd like to buy and the owner sends invoices. It sounds like LMC has gotten some negative feedback about Isaac's "line," because the most recent status update on the page is "I definitely will not tolerate any negativity on my page and will ban anyone who has something negative to say. As the saying goes "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". I put a lot of time & effort into what I do & if you want to be negative, go somewhere else. Thanks! ?"
