The legal battle continues in Orange County between Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband, Jim Bellino, and Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. Tamra and Shannon currently star on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and Alexis is an alum of the RHOC. According to The Blast, Jim is back in court and comedian, Heather McDonald, is firing back at Jim and demanding that his lawsuit be thrown out.
According to court documents, Heather is denying any wrongdoing and all of Jim’s allegations. Jim sued Heather in June over a public conversation she had with Tamra and Shannon. Jim accused them all of defaming him during their conversation. Now, Heather is firing back and stating that everything she said was the truth. She also denies causing harm.
Jim had sued Tamra and Shannon for allegedly defaming his name and trashing his family on Heather’s podcast. Plus, he accused them of spreading lies that his divorce was fake and that his trampoline business had left customers paralyzed and that “he’s going to jail.”
Jim sued and wanted $1 million dollars for the damage that he said Tamra and Shannon caused his life. They fought back and wanted the cases to be dismissed. Everything was dismissed for Shannon, and the judge felt that Jim didn’t establish probability on the defamation and claims.
Shannon was awarded $138,000 dollars in attorney fees. Tamra was a defendant in the lawsuit. She hasn’t been dismissed yet and her case is ongoing.
Just when you think everything is getting resolved, there are new court documents. It seems like this has been going on for a very long time. I hope they are all able to find a solution fast and get some closure.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Tuesday nights at 9 P.M. ET on Bravo.
