Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge is attempting to settle a three-year-long battle with her former costar Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband.

The parties agree to push the date back by 60 days to allow them time to hash out a deal. Tamra is the last remaining defendant in the case.

Back in 2018, Jim sued the reality star and her costar Shannon Beador over comments they made on comedian Heather McDonald’s podcast.

He accused the duo of spreading malicious lies about his trampoline business. On the show, the ladies talked about a lawsuit filed against Jim’s business in which one customer claimed they were paralyzed. He also took issue with them claiming his divorce was fake and that he was “going to jail.”

In his lawsuit, Jim wrote about his businesses, “As a result of the defamatory statements at issue in this case, they have been unable to originate several new loans and unable to obtain several new investments, as some third parties are no longer willing to do business with them as a result of damage to my reputation.”

Jim is seeking $1 million in damages. Tamra and Shannon both denied the allegations and claimed Jim’s reputation was already tarnished before they appeared on the podcast.

The judge presiding over the case dismissed all claims against Shannon and awarded her $137,000 in attorney fees. She was quick to make moves to collect the money and placed liens against Jim's property over the debt.

As Radar previously reported, producers decided against bringing Tamra back for season 16 despite cleaning house. Instead, Heather Dubrow is coming back for another go. She will be joined by Shannon, Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. The new cast members are Jennifer Armstrong, Noella Bergener, and Nicole James.

The axed cast members included Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Vargas.
