Andy Cohen and Melissa Gorga‘s summer 2018 won’t be a picnic.
The Bravo duo is set to face off with Melissa’s former business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson, in an August 2018 trial, according to Page Six.
Jackie is currently suing Andy and Melissa for a whopping $30 million; claiming defamation and infliction of emotional distress.
In her lawsuit, Jackie claims that Melissa and Andy made her look like a “felon” on TV after she ended her business relationship with Melissa and her boutique, Envy.
For more on Jackie’s lawsuit, check out our original story here.
A U.S. District Court will hear both parties arguments “during the two-week trial period commencing August 6, 2018,” court documents reveal.
Jackie has until January 15 to add any additional parties to her lawsuit. Meanwhile, a discovery plan is due to the court within two weeks of Melissa and Andy’s first appearance. However all evidence by must submitted by May 14.
Bravo says “this lawsuit has no merit” while Melissa and Andy’s reps have yet to comment on the lawsuit at all.
The good news is, this lawsuit can still be settled out of court and ultimately could be the route Bravo, Andy, and Melissa take.
I still can’t believe Jackie is going after Melissa and Andy and that’s all I’m going to say.
Are you surprised Melissa and Andy are heading to trial? Does Jackie’s lawsuit have merit? Do you think Bravo, Andy, and Melissa will settle? Sound off below!
