Following a messy feud on The Real Housewives of Orange County over Shannon’s post-divorce behavior and Tamra’s accusations that Shannon was a selfish friend and manipulative, the women reunited and confirmed their bond was “unbreakable” on Instagram.
“RIDE OR DIE! [Shannon Beador], we had some growing pains this season, but we are good as gold. I love you to the moon and back and I’m blessed to have you in my life,” Tamra wrote in the caption of her photo of the two of them, also adding hashtags, “#YouHadMeAtImDone” and “#Unbreakable.”
While the photos appeared to be old, Shannon did respond to Tamra’s post.
“The feeling is mutual my friend! We can weather the storms,” commented Shannon.
“We got this,” responded Tamra.
During the 13th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon was accused of acting like a victim by Tamra and other members of the cast but felt she was simply going through hard times and wanted her friends to be more understanding.
As fans may have heard, Jim filed his suit against the two women earlier this year after they allegedly defamed him by claiming guests of his trampoline park had been paralyzed during an appearance on Heather McDonald‘s podcast Juicy Scoop.
In their latest move against Jim, Tamra and Shannon are firing back against Jim’s claim that they cost him at least $1 million in damages to his trampoline business and requesting he provides proof of his allegations.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast on December 10, Shannon said Jim’s claim that “visitors who regularly visit SkyZone no longer do because they have heard that ‘people get paralyzed there’” does nothing “to link [Shannon] to any purported loss of business.”
Instead, they claim Jim has given no real evidence to back up his allegations.
Shannon’s documents continued, “[Jim] should have presented a declaration from any such investor or presented another writing as a business record that proves his assertion. Instead, he rests solely on his own statement. It stretches credulity to believe that an investor would be swayed in making a business decision by a comedic performance in a comedy club.”
While Shannon commented on Jim’s business on Juicy Scoop, she said in her court documents that she didn’t know anything about it and wants the judge to dismiss Jim’s case against her.
In his own court documents, Jim said Shannon “intended to disrupt those relationships and knew or should have known that disruption would result when she made the statements about Skyzone at issue in this case.”
“Disruption of those relationships has occurred as visitors who would otherwise regularly visit Skyzone no longer do because they have heard that ‘people get paralyzed’ there. In addition, I had the opportunity to purchase three trampoline parks before Beador’s statements were made,” he continued.
According to Jim, the purchase of additional parks would have been very profitable for him but because of Tamra and Shannon’s public comments about his business, the investors ultimately opted out of the deal.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
