Series: ABTV Loves Love Is Blind Weekly 

It is no secret that Love Is Blind was one of the most binge worthy series of this year. With an unconventional love experiment, there were so many things that viewers got to see before the actual cast. The confessionals often revealed how the couples really felt about their own partner, and sometimes someone else’s. With an exciting series, the reunion special lived up to its expectation and allowed castmates to make up and curse each other out. 

After watching Jessica Batten gush over Matt Barnett, his wife Amber had a few words for her. While she expressed her disapproval of her actions, Amber emphasized her disdain by calling Jessica “sheisty” and “disingenuine.” While Amber’s words cut deep, it wasn’t the only time labels were placed on Jessica for the way she carried herself during the filming process. She even earned the nickname “Messica” shortly after the premier of the season. 

With all of these things being thrown her way, Jessica decided to take control of her own narrative. Recently, she announced the launch of a new business venture that will hopefully highlight her growth and paint her in a new light. In an Instagram post with her wearing a sports bra with “Shiesty B” written across it, Batten decided to turn the awkward reunion moment into a project that promotes positivity. 

I had an idea after my experience on a reality television show. What if I could take a label that was used as an attempt to define me and turn it into something uplifting and empowering? What if I could use my experience to create an impact and help others? We could start to shine a light in a place where there is so much darkness,” Batten posted.

Since the upload, Batten hasn’t released specific details on the collection or what her fans can expect. Some people have mentioned in her comments that they would love to buy clothing with the brand’s logo. With such a cute design, we might see a clothing line from the reality TV star. Who knows, maybe she’ll give Amber 10 % for inspiring the logo. 

Jessica Batten isn’t the only star from Love Is Blind branching out into new things. Fan favorite Lauren Speed-Hamilton revealed she is one of the co-hosts for a new series on Ellen DeGeneres’ Ellentube. The digital show Design DUO challenges pairs to remodel parts of their homes on a budget. Guests have 24 hours to completely transform their rooms and possibly win $5,000. The show captures the work that goes into interior design and the crazy things people ask Siri, like “how do you unlock a ladder?” Speed- Hamilton is joined by John Colaneri to give you all of the design inspiration you need. 

Whether it’s shopping Jessica’s new line or watching Lauren’s show, there are multiple ways to stay busy and entertained as we continue to stay safe.
