Here’s some of the most successful Shark Tank products. Elizabeth Keatinge has more.
When you’re a celebrity in trouble, you need a celebrity lawyer. What better way to find one than on a competitive reality show?
“Shark Tank: Lawyer Edition” featured notable attorneys who have become celebrities in their own right like Alan Dershowitz (host John Mulaney) and Kate McKinnon’s Rudy Giuliani taking pitches from troubled celebrities who need their help. Beck Bennett shows up first as New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft before an appeal from “Empire” star Jussie Smollett (Chris Redd).
“Jussie, why exactly are you here today?” asks lawyer Michael Avenatti (Pete Davidson).
“I broke humanity?” Smollett responds. “But if you take my case, I’m offering spoilers for the next season of ‘Empire’: I die.”
If only it was that easy and entertaining for a celebrity to hire an attorney.
