Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley's clothing line probably wouldn't have made her filthy rich but based on the overwhelming interest she probably would have made a pretty profit. Unfortunately, the Jersey Shore star's days as a clothing designer are over as quickly as they began. The barely-there clothing line appropriately named Filthy Couture launched in July. Now, Radaronline.com is revealing that the risque business took off but is now being taken down. A confidante of the reality star tells Radar that J-WOWW's foray into fashion is a complete bust. Says the source, "Due to trademark issues the company was shut down. Money needed to be returned to the people who had ordered clothing." A far cry from the ugly Ed Hardy shirts that most of her Jersey Shore castmates don, J-WOWW's high-end garb was "hand-silicon painted, with Swarovski crystals and European lace," according to Radaronline. The clothing with names such as Pure Sin, Luscious Links, Violet Desire and Sexy Siren was sure to be a shoo-in among strippers, escorts and street walkers. The J-WOWW insider maintains that the reality star was in over her head from the beginning, "She couldn't handle the clothing line and didn't really have the help she needed." Obviously, there's more in a name than J-WOWW accounted for. J-WOWW's line was also at risk of a lawsuit because the name was similar to competing clothing company. For now, and likely forever, it doesn't appear J-WOWW's clothing line will be coming to a Frederick's of Hollywood near you. The source adds, "She could have given her line a new name but instead just let it go. She's no longer designing clothes for her line and I'm not sure if she'll ever do it again."
