The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge was photographed entering a Los Angeles courthouse today to face off against Jim Bellino, who is suing the reality star for defamation after she called him a "shady mother f**ker." A source told RadarOnline.com exclusively Tamra and Jim's meeting was "very tense, to say the least." Click through 7 shocking photos, as Radar reveals what went down during Tamra's second day in negotiations with Jim.
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.
After a judge recently dismissed Shannon, 54, from the lawsuit, Jim filed an appeal and their case is heading back to court in March.
The blonde beauty brought husband Eddie along today for mediation, which was the second day in a row that she was forced to face Jim.
But Tamra did not get off the hook that easy and it appears that she may have to pay for her choice words made about Jim!
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?
