The upscale wedding dress shop featured in the reality show Brides of Beverly Hills has been raided by police after the boutique’s owner Renee Strauss allegedly ignored a lawsuit ruling against her.
Big Brother’s Rachel Reilly was actually featured in an episode of the show (that’s Strauss holding the champagne bottle next to Rachel in the photo used here).
According to TMZ, Strauss lost a lawsuit filed by some of her former employees and failed to pay up some $500,000. So, following California law, police went into the store and seized merchandise, including dresses, shoes and tiaras, apparently equaling what Staruss owed in the judgment.
The Brides of Beverly Hills originally aired on Canada’s Slice channel, but TLC picked up the show and has been airing it.
