Comedian Heather McDonald Wants Jim Bellino’s Lawsuit Tossed!

Comedian Heather McDonald wants Jim Bellino lawsuit to be tossed. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, McDonald is denying all allegations of wrongdoing in the case brought by the ex-husband of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino.

McDonald argues everything she said was true. The comedian also denies causing Bellino any harm.

If you recall, Bellino filed a lawsuit against McDonald in June. He accused her of defaming him by allowing Tamra Judge Shannon Beador to talk about his divorce from Alexis and his trampoline business and then publishing the allegedly defamatory statements on her podcast.

Jim sued McDonald for damages in excess of $1 million.

Last year, Tamra and Shannon appeared on McDonald’s live Juicy Scoop podcast. “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.

Beador was dismissed from the case and was awarded $137,340.25 in the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Bellino. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the award will cover Beador’s legal bills.

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