Heather McDonald and Ex-‘RHOC’ Star Jim Bellino Settle Defamation Case
Heather McDonald and former ‘RHOC’ star Jim bellino are on the same page, legally speaking – they settled her case against her … TMZ has learned.
According to a joint statement released by Jim and Heather … they “reached a settlement of the dispute on mutually satisfactory terms”. The joint statement also states that Heather “never intended to do any damage” to Jim’s reputation or that of his business.
Jim, the ex-husband of the ‘RHOC’ star Alexis BellinoThe comedian continued in June 2019, claiming that she “shamelessly broadcast and peddled unfounded gossip” about her divorce from Alexis in an episode of Heather’s podcast, “The Juicy Scoop.”
Heather, who used to appear on “Chelsea Lately” before starting her podcast, had already scored a victory in the libel lawsuit in March, when a judge granted her motion to dismiss the lawsuit … but Jim appealed.
The terms of their settlement are confidential … therefore, we do not know if the money has changed hands. We’re told Jim filed earlier this month to withdraw his appeal, but a judge has yet to approve.
Our sincere thanks to
