Tamra Judge wants Jim Bellino’s $1 million lawsuit thrown out!
According to The Blast, Tamra filed court docs on September 10th demanding Jim’s lawsuit be dismissed!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star denies that she defamed Jim or made any false statements about him.
Tamra claims she only stated her opinion and says that Jim suffered no damages from her comments. Adding that any damages Jim did suffer were from his own doing and are not her fault. Tamra points out that Jim is also a public figure and that her statements fall under public interest.
In July, Jim sued Tamra and Shannon Beador for defamation after they made some unsavory comments about him and his ex-wife Alexis Bellino on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast.
If you recall, Tamra and Shannon said they think Jim and Alexis’ divorce is fake. Shannon also commented that she heard the couple’s trampoline park left people paralyzed.
Jim gave them the chance to apologize and retract their statements – something neither of them did. Instead, Tamra and Shannon went on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and claimed they were “poking fun” at Jim and meant no harm.
Now we just have to wait and see who will win this war. No word on if Shannon plans to file similar documents to dismiss Jim’s lawsuit.
