The Real Housewives are constantly talking trash about each other and even some of the women’s husbands. Most of the time people can handle this since it is what’s expected. Alexis Bellino’s very recent ex-husband Jim Bellino is not one of those people. He cannot get over some jokes/accusations that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador told at his expense during a podcast appearance.
He didn’t just subtweet them or go on a social media rant. He took things to another level by filing a $1 million dollar lawsuit against Shannon and Tamra. Yes, you read that correctly: ONE MILLION DOLLARS for talking shit. Could you imagine if everyone in the Real Housewives franchise was that lawsuit happy!?
Let’s backtrack. Why is Jim soooo upset that he wants $1 million? During an episode of Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast, Tamra said , “Why is he wanting spousal support? I have a theory. Everything’s in her name. He’s going to go to jail. Yeah, he’s a shady motherf**ker.”
Shannon shaded their Sky Zone indoor trampoline parks. She said, “I heard they don’t [own the trampoline park businesses] because they were sued,” Shannon claimed. “I won’t let my kids go because people get paralyzed. Apparently that happened.” The podcast was edited to exclude some of those comments after Jim threatened legal action.
In a post on his own personal website, Jim claimed, ““I have been forced to seek professional help for physical and psychological ailments I’ve been experiencing since being dragged through the mud by Tamra and Shannon. The repercussions of this behavior from them and the coverage that it gets are literally harming every part of me.”
He also sent cease and desist letters to both Tamra and Shannon in response to those podcast comments, according to an article from TMZ.
Now The Blast has obtained legal documents that Shannon filed. The site reports that Shannon believes “she couldn’t possibly ruin his reputation because it was already terrible.” The documents also say that Jim did not suffer any damages as a result of the comments. She also emphasized that the statements were just humorous and not actually intended to be harmful. Shannon wants Jim to pay her attorney fees and dismiss this lawsuit.
TELL US- IS JIM OVERREACTING OR DOES HE DESERVE THE $1 MILLION FROM SHANNON AND TAMRA?
