EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough – Dragged into Legal Battle over Bus Crash
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough has been slapped with a lawsuit accusing her of being responsible for a bus crash – that allegedly left a woman disabled — and now the victim is demanding she pay up for her injuries. Even though Keough was NOT the driver.
Back in August, Marilu Cabanas sued the Orange County Transportation, a woman named Shi Yongrong and an unknown Jane Doe for negligence. Cabanas explained back on August 11th, 2014, she was riding the bus in the city of Mission Viejo. While on the bus a white Mercedes GLK 350 – driven by Yongrong – sideswiped the city bus.
The suit blames both Yongrong and the bus driver for negligence and driving so reckless they caused the crash … that left her unable to work, disabled and with piles of medical bills.
The Dirty spoke with Keough exclusively, “The bus sideswiped my kids mirror. My insurance company is exploring the claims and records, so I have nothing to do with it. It’s obvious they recognized my name – no way anyone got hurt. It was $1000 to repair the mirror and there was no marks on the bus.”
The original complaint did not name Keough as a defendant … however, Cabanas headed back to court recently and amended her suit to replace Jane Doe with Keough … who she’s now attempting to hold responsible for the crash due to her allowing Yongrong to drive the Mercedes which was the catalyst for the events.
