Shannon Beador Awarded $138K From Alexis Bellino’s Ex-Husband Jim In Defamation Lawsuit!

Shannon Beador was awarded $137,340.25 in the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Jim Bellino, ex-husband of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the award will cover Beador’s legal bills.

Back in April, Beador was asking for a judge to have Bellino pay her $220,000 in legal bills after she was dismissed from Bellino's $1 million defamation lawsuit, according to The Blast.

Apparently, Jim contended that the $220k legal bill was excessive and unreasonable and asked the judge to order that he doesn’t need to pay her anything. Failing that, Jim wanted to slash the bill by 80%, so he would only have to cough up about $44,000, the website reported at that time.

Bellino also has claimed in court documents that Beador’s legal eagles haven’t provided enough detail on the work they did, reported Radar Online.

As previously reported, this all went down when Tamra Judge 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

Meanwhile, Jim is still fighting Judge in court over her “jail” comment, according to The Blast.
