Tamra Judge is ready to battle it out in court with former Real Housewives of Orange County foe Jim Bellino.
After refusing to settle with Jim, who was previously married to RHOC star Alexis Bellino, Tamra has told a judge that she is prepared to go to trial over the $1 million defamation lawsuit.
As we have previously reported, Tamra and Shannon Beador were sued by Jim in the summer of 2018 for over $1 million after they made some questionable comments about Jim while appearing on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast. The OC Housewives dishes on the bevy of lawsuits against Jim and his trampoline business as well as his “scam” divorce from Alexis.
At the time, Jim claimed that Shannon and Tamra were guilty of defamation due to their statements about him which included claims his trampoline park left paralyzed and the fact that he may go to jail.
Tamra and Shannon denied Jim’s allegations and claimed that their comments were true and/or their own opinions. In January 2019, a judge dismissed Shannon from the case and order Jim to pay her $137,000 to cover her legal fees.
Jim continues to demand more a $1 million from Tamra, who doesn’t believe she owes Jim a dime. She’s ready for her day in court and to fight back against Jim’s claims.
Tamra and Jim’s court battle will begin on November 8, 2021.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
