Both Gretchen and Slade have agreed to testify against Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge, accusing the reality stars of defaming Alexis' ex-husband Jim Bellino. Alexis and Jim filed for divorce earlier this year.

Not long after news broke about their divorce, Jim sued Shannon, 54, and Tamra, 51, accusing them of spreading lies about his "fake divorce" and that customers at his trampoline business had been paralyzed, in addition to claims that "he’s going to jail."

Jim, 56, who is seeking damages in excess of $1 million, filed paperwork on Monday, according to The Blast, claiming he was contacted by Slade. The reality TV star told him he and Gretchen wanted to help him in his lawsuit against Tamra and Shannon, providing "testimony regarding the anger, hostility and ill-will that Defendants harbor with respect to Bellino."
