As RadarOnline.com has learned, Shannon was awarded 138,000 from Jim, to cover her legal bills associated with his defamation lawsuit against her.
Radar readers recall that last year, Jim sued Shannon, 55, and fellow Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge, for defamation. He said the ladies spoke negatively about him on comedian Heather McDonald’s podcast, “Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald.”
According to The Blast, he sought $1 million in the suit, alleging that Shannon and Tamra conspired to make a mockery of his after he filed for divorce from Alexis, 42.
Shannon and Tamra, 51, denied his claims and asked the judge in the case to refund their legal fees.
Now, the judge has dismissed Jim’s lawsuit and awarded Shannon $137,340.25 of the $220,009 she asked for in legal fees.
