Jeff originally wanted to have this legal matter settled in private arbitration; however a judge has ruled that he must have a trial.

Back in June, Alexandra filed a complaint against Jeff, his partner Gage Edwards, the show’s production company Authentic Entertainment, and Bravo. She claimed that during the birth of little Monroe, she was filmed while half-nude without permission.

She also complained that the 48-year-old made some offensive comments towards her personally. During the interview segments that were edited into the episode, Jeff said, “If I was a surrogate, and I had known there was going to be an audience, I probably would have waxed. And that was the shocking part for Gage. I don’t think Gage had ever seen a vagina, let alone one that big.”

Though Alexandra was upset, Jeff tried to have her suit thrown out due to what he claimed was a clause in her contract.

However, the judge ruled that no such clause exists and the case must go to trial. The judge decided that their surrogacy contract “is reasonably susceptible to more than one interpretation.”
