Comedian Heather McDonald is firing back at Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband in court and demanding his lawsuit be tossed.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, McDonald is denying all allegations of wrongdoing in the case brought by Jim Bellino.
Back in June, Jim Bellino sued McDonald over a public conversation she had with “RHOC” stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. He accused the women of defaming him during their talk.
In newly filed documents, McDonald argues everything she said was true. The comedian also denies causing Bellino any harm.
Bellino previously sued Beador and Judge, accusing them of defaming his good name by trashing his family on a podcast with 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 all of their statements were rooted in truth.
The judge dismissed all claims against Beador, noting that Bellino failed to establish a probability of prevailing against Beador on the defamation and other claims, and as a result, the “complaint is stricken in its entirety against Ms. Beador. The clerk shall enter judgment for Ms. Beador.”
Beador was awarded $138,000 in attorney fees.
Tamra Judge, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, has not been dismissed and the case against her is continuing on.
