'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Shannon Beador has been awarded $138,000 from former housewife Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband Jim after he unsuccessfully sued her for defamation.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the award will cover Shannon’s legal bills associated with Jim’s unsuccessful lawsuit claim.
Jim sued 'RHOC' stars Shannon Tamra Judge for defamation after the besties allegedly spoke negatively of him while appearing on comedian Heather McDonald’s podcast, 'Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald.'
Jim initially sought $1 million for the alleged defamation, but a judge quickly dismissed the case and ordered that he pay Beador her $137,340.25 of the $220,009 she sought for legal bills, according to the documents.
Tamra reportedly said during the podcast of Jim, "He’s going to go to jail. Yeah, he’s a shady motherf*cker!." The judge has not dismissed his case against Tamra - which appears to be far more damning. There's a chance she may have to pay him some money.
