This is what the VH1 bio has to say: “When Renee was young her best friend was arrested and sentenced to many years behind bars. This was her first real introduction to prison, but unfortunately not her last. Thanks to a circle of friends living the street life, Renee has visited over 83 prisons and written hundreds of letters to comfort the many friends she had on "the inside." This correspondence gave her the idea to turn her love of the "the life" into a greeting card company called JAIL MAIL.”
This is what Renee tweeted today: “Jail mail inc..We'r not incorporated we're INCARCERATED!!! Stay tunes 4 the unveiling of JAILMAILINC” (I refuse to correct spelling errors, sorry.)
It appears to me as though Renee is going to use the show and publicity to launch her own business. It may be opportunistic, but it’s a very smart way to make the most of her new found fame. I don’t know if I am crazy about the idea of greeting cards for criminals, but nowadays who knows what will sell. Your guess is as good as mine. The craziest ideas take off and make millions. Why not “Jail Mail”? Maybe she can expand on it down the road with Drita’s package idea? How about “The Inmate Crate?” A lovely box of assorted salamis, twinkies, provolone cheese, a bottle of wine and a saw. Just a thought.
