Shannon Beador Wants Jim Bellino To Pay Her $220K Legal Fees In Defamation Lawsuit!

According to court records obtained by The Blast, Shannon Beador's attorney’s fees have totaled $220,894.55 in Jim Bellino's $1 million defamation lawsuit. Now, the Real Housewives of Orange County star is asking the judge to have Bellino pay her legal bills.

Bellino, who is being represented by O’Melveny & Myers says that the amount she is requesting is not excessive. A judge has yet to rule on her motion.

Beador was dismissed from the lawsuit, but in January Bellino filed an appeal the decision. Meanwhile, the claims against Beador's co-star Tamra Judge have yet to be ruled on.

As previously reported, this all went down when Tamra and Shannon appeared on Heather McDonald’s live Juicy Scoop podcast in June. “He was very crusty … I almost sent her a message saying, ‘I’m so sorry,’ but then you sent me that text saying, ‘Do you think that he’s trying to protect her? Do you think that he’s in trouble and she can’t testify against him if he’s in trouble?” Judge said at the time.

Multiple blogs reported that Judge said her “theory” was Jim is “going to jail.” Meanwhile, Beador reportedly claimed “people get paralyzed” at his trampoline park business and the estranged couple “got sued” because of it, according to Us Weekly.

Jim filed for divorce from Alexis after 13 years of marriage on June 21, citing irreconcilable differences. They are parents of son James and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna
