Shannon Beador awarded $ 138k in attorney's fees to RHOC-costar Alexis Bellino & ex 39's Jim after his libel case was thrown out
She was indicted by her ex-husband of Real Housewives Of Orange County, the ex-husband of Alexis Bellino for libel after being threatened about him on a podcast
Now, Shannon Beador has received $ 138,000 in attorney fees after a judge brought Jim Bellino's lawsuit against her, according to court documents filed by The blast.
The suit was launched after the 55-year-old reality star claimed on a podcast that people had been injured by Bellino & # 39; s trampoline company.

Shannon and her co-housewife Tamra Judge, 51, appeared in an episode of the podcast Juice Scoop with comedian Heather McDonald, recording with Bellino.
The judge dismissed the case against Shannon, where she wanted to reclaim $ 220,000 in legal costs.
After Bellino argued that the amount was excessive and unreasonable, the court made its own calculations and rewarded her with $ 137,340.25 in attorney's fees.
Although he will eventually pay more than $ 100,000, Jim originally hoped that he would get $ 1 million in his suit against Shannon and Tamra.

Jim sought the slanderous statement because the two reality stars had reportedly spread lies about his then threatening divorce, which they claimed was fake.
The two also said that customers were paralyzed by the trampolines that his company had sold and that he & # 39; would go to jail & # 39 ;.
Shannon and Tamra denied the slander claim and said their comments were all rooted in truth.
Although the judge dismissed the lawsuit against Shannon and cleared the way for reclaiming attorney fees, he ordered the lawsuit against Tamra started, so she still has $ 1 million on the hook.

Although the more serious claims of the podcast are still disputed, the claim that the divorce of Bellino was fake proved to be demonstrably incorrect, as Jim and Alex finalized in August 2018.
Alexis, who was a lead cast member of the five to eight seasons, confirmed their divorce in June last year.
# It is with a heavy heart that we inform the public about our mutual decision to end our marriage – but it is important to us that you know that we have made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for the future of our children, & # 39; de Bellinos said in a joint statement. & # 39; We love each other to the highest degree as spouses, and especially as parents. We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce. & # 39;
Shannon also recently detached herself from her former husband, David Beador.
She received $ 1.4 million in the April scheme and she also receives $ 10,000 per month as support.
