As fans know, the ex-husband of RHOC alum Alexis Bellino is suing Tamra, 51, and Shannon Beador, 54, for bashing him on Heather's Juicy Scoop podcast. In addition to calling him a "shady mother f**ker," Tamra also said on air that he was "going to jail" after an alleged accident at his trampoline park.

Jim blasted Tamra in a blog post after their mediation. "Tamra, Shannon, and Heather decided it would be self-promoting to use my very sad personal family situation for their personal, financial, and celebrity gain. I knew when I heard it that if I didn’t take legal action, there would be no end to their depravity — after taking years of verbal abuse and slander from Judge, this was truly the last straw. This, I knew, would be a defining moment — I chose to react and defend myself. If I were to have retreated, the abuse would have continued on and on as it has for years.

Jim explained his animosity toward Tamra. “Tamra’s longstanding abuse of the reality TV platform is so disgusting to me. In my opinion, she has used Bravo TV and The Real Housewives of Orange County TV series to get away with all manner of manipulation, bullying, and abuse, all without facing any consequences from Bravo or her uninformed cult following.

Tamra, using the power you wield as a public figure and as woman to try to emasculate and reduce a man for whom you have exhibited nothing but pure, unadulterated contempt is sad and desperate on your part. I am a Christian father who was clearly devoted to his wife and children. All of this coming from a woman whose own life is nothing if not the portrait of failed marriages and failed child-rearing.”  Do you think that Tamra Judge should have to pay Jim Bellino?
