RHOC’s Tamra Judge Asks Judge to Block Gretchen Rossi’s Testimony in Jim Bellino’s Defamation Case, Plus Gretchen Speaks Out

RHOC Tamra Judge vs Gretchen Rossi

Tamra Judge does not want her former Real Housewives of Orange County to take the stand against her.

As Jim Bellino, the ex-husband of ex-cast member Alexis Bellino, attempts to sue Tamra, along with her co-star Shannon Beador, for defamation, she’s hoping a judge will block Gretchen Rossi from offering a testimony on Jim’s behalf.

On September 27, just two days after Jim requested Gretchen and her fiancé, Slade Smiley, be entered into his case as witnesses, The Blast revealed Tamra is taking action to make sure Gretchen never takes the stand. As she’s explained, she thinks Jim’s request to have them involved is based on “foundationless, conclusory hearsay” he believes Gretchen can offer.

Tamra also pointed out that Gretchen has no actual involvement with the case. So, when it comes to a potential testimony, her words shouldn’t hold any weight.

Earlier this week, Jim filed documents stating Slade revealed to him that he and Gretchen are ready to provide evidence “that the Defendants have a pattern of making up stories to create notoriety for themselves in the media” and to “provide testimony regarding the anger, hostility and ill-will that Defendants harbor with respect to Bellino.”

Jim also said it was Slade who contacted him but on Twitter, Gretchen denied Slade reached out. Instead, she claimed, it was Jim who contacted her and Slade.

“[I] didn’t involve myself. He reached out to us. We have now got subpoenaed plain and simple. Don’t have a choice any longer. It’s a court order,” she explained of her potentially upcoming testimony against Tamra and Shannon.

Gretchen also claimed that, unlike Tamra, she has always told the truth.

She wrote, “Always comes out! And that’s why I can stand with my head held high! So many truths about her lies and BS throughout the years have come out on the show and in the press. (Including sadly from her own daughter.”

The judge has not yet ruled on Jim and Tamra’s requests.
