Carrie Fisher once told Meryl Streep to “take your broken heart, make it into art.” Well, it looks like RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Tatianna just took that phrase to a whole new level.
According to a Monday report from TMZ, Tatianna was arrested for disorderly conduct after an incident outside of an Atlanta nightclub last weekend. The site posted her tearful mugshot, in which the Season 2 queen appears clearly distraught while outfitted in full hair, makeup, and hoop earrings.
But it doesn’t seem to have kept her down too long. In a Tuesday evening Instagram post, Tatianna unveiled “The Disorderly Conduct Collection,” featuring merchandise emblazoned with the mugshot photo posted by TMZ. A coffee mug, which goes for $19.99, even includes her famous catchphrase: “Choices.”
There’s also a t-shirt and sweatshirt, which retail for $29.99 and $39.99, respectively.
After a nightclub employee took a photo with her last weekend, the gossip website reports that Tatianna followed him through an employee-only entrance, which wasn’t permitted by the club. Things reportedly got out of hand, and the cops were called.
But Tatianna soon reassured her fans that she was fine, although she was admittedly frightened in the moment.
“Im fine! It was a dumb situation that I wish didn't happen but shit happens and people make mistakes. There was no violence or ridiculousness [sic],” Tatianna said Monday night on Twitter. “I'm crying in the picture because I was scared and had never been in that position before. wish I would have just smiled.”
The merch collection is just one way Tatianna is turning an unfortunate situation into dollar signs — both for herself and others. She also announced a charity fundraiser, aptly called the Disorderly Conduct Party, in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night.
