The two raised about $1 million to get the project off the ground, with $400,000 of it coming from John Shannon Bouchillon.

Bouchillon has since sued them both. He claims that unknown to him at the time he made his investment, Somers and Brown didn't have a formal a business agreement, and that they constantly fought, unable to agree on anything. Bouchillon's lawsuit maintains that the fights between Somers and Brown led to the project collapsing shortly after the first store opened in Lexington, Kentucky.

LEGAL DOCUMENTS: Summary Judgement

"At the time of his investment, it was misrepresented to my client that there was an operating agreement and a licensing agreement between the Governor and Suzanne Somers," Bouchillon's attorney Craig Robertson tells exclusively.

"They took in money from investors and even opened that first store without telling their investors of their intense disagreements. Of course, none of their own money was at risk."
