"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Shannon Beador wants Alexis Bellino's ex-husband to cover her legal fees for successfully defending herself in the $1 million lawsuit he filed against her.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Beador is asking the judge to grant her attorneys' fees in the amount of $220,894.55. The judge recently dismissed all claims against Beador and ordered Jim Bellino would have to pay her legal bills.

Beador says the amount she is requesting is not excessive and her lawyers performed quality work that ended with her being victorious.

A judge has yet to rule on her motion.

As The Blast first reported, in dismissing Beador from the case, the judge noted that Bellino failed to establish a probability of prevailing against her on the defamation and other claims. As a result, the “complaint is stricken in its entirety against Ms. Beador. The clerk shall enter judgment for Ms. Beador.”

Tamra Judge, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, was not dismissed and the case against her will continue on.

Last year, Jim Bellino sued Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge accusing them of defaming his good name by trashing his family on a podcast with comedian Heather McDonald.

He accused the reality stars of spreading lies that his divorce was fake and that his trampoline business had left customers paralyzed and claimed, “he’s going to jail.”

Jim sued seeking in excess of $1 million for the damage Tamra and Shannon allegedly caused his life.

The reality stars fired back, demanding the case against them be dismissed. Both denied defaming Jim and said al their statements were rooted in truth.

Recently, Jim filed court docs revealing he believes the judge should allow him to demand certain documents and information from Beador and Judge.

Bellino sought for the judge to allow him to demand certain texts and emails from Judge and Beador to see if he could find evidence they planned out an attack against him.
