Jim Bellino Calls Out Tamra Judge; Says She Uses RHOC To ‘Get Away’ With ‘Manipulation, Bullying And Abuse’

Jim Bellino is slamming Tamra Judge, accuses the Real Housewives of Orange County star of being abusive while also claiming that producers of the Bravo hit reality show allow her behavior to go unchecked.

“Tamra’s longstanding abuse of the reality TV platform is so disgusting to me,” he wrote on Friday, March 1, via his personal blog post. “In my opinion, she has used Bravo TV and The Real Housewives of Orange County TV series to get away with all manner of manipulation, bullying and abuse, all without facing any consequences from Bravo or her uninformed cult following.”

Jim explains how he and his family have been the target from Judge's slanderous statements. “My family and I have sadly been the target of slanderous statements made by Tamra Judge that date back to 2011, when she publicly called me a “Faux Christian,” despite the fact that I hold a degree in theology. I find it preposterous for her to make such statements about me when she has chosen to make her supposed Christianity a plotline for a reality show by getting baptized in a swimming pool and then still continuing to act in a debaucherous manner for television. In my opinion, these acts seem to be coming from an extremely fame-hungry individual who is desperate for a storyline and frantically trying to keep her reality TV job by somehow remaining relevant.”

He continued: “In 2012, completely unprovoked, Tamra Judge called me a “cocaine dealer,” which is ironic, considering I have never in my life taken any illegal substance of any kind. Once again, this was a desperate comment made publicly to harm me personally with zero regard as to how this would affect me, my work, my wife, or our small children.”

Bellino then calls out Judge's actions for allegedly being cruel to more than just her castmates. “These destructive comments seem to be Tamra Judge’s principle weapon of choice to use against whomever she decides to target,” he wrote. “She has admitted to making up lies and has targeted her venomous comments toward every single cast member she has ever worked with on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She has publicly used that same vile and venomous commentary on her previous husbands, her children and fans of the show. In my opinion, she will say and do anything to try and keep her name spinning in the public eye by causing some sort of controversy.”

Jim claims that Judge's has continued to make slanderous comments about him. In June 2018, Judge and Beador allegedly said during an episode of Heather McDonald’s “Juicy Scoop” podcast that he was “going to jail” and called him “a shady motherf—ker.”

He explained: “I knew when I heard it that if I didn’t take legal action, there would be no end to their depravity — after taking years of verbal abuse and slander from Judge, this was truly the last straw. … I chose to react and defend myself. If I were to have retreated, the abuse would have continued on and on as it has for years,” he wrote on his personal blog post.

Judge and Beador insisted during a July 2018 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that they were “just poking fun” at Jim, according to Us Weekly.

According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly in January 2019, “The Court remains convinced that [Jim] has presented sufficient evidence to sustain his slander per se cause of action against Judge.”

Jim and Judge faced off in court earlier this week in mediation.
