Shannon Beador awarded $138K in Jim Bellino lawsuit

Shannon Beador‘s pockets are a little bit heavier.

The “Real Housewives of Orange County” star was awarded $137,340.25 for her legal fees in the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Jim Bellino, the ex-husband of former “RHOC” star Alexis Bellino, The Blast reported. Beador, 55, previously asked the court for over $220,000.

Beador was dismissed from the $1 million defamation suit against her and co-star Tamra Judge in January.

Jim Bellino, 57, first filed a suit against the duo in 2018, claiming in documents that they spread false information about him and his businesses on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” Judge, 51, is still fighting with him.

Meanwhile, Beador was also awarded $1.4 million in her divorce from David Beador in April.

Beador’s lawyers didn’t get back to us.
