Wedding Dress Guru

Beverly Hills Shop RAIDED!

11/25/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A fancy schmancy Beverly Hills wedding dress shop -- owned by a reality show star -- doesn't have a lot for sale these days, because the Sheriff's deputies seized all the dresses!

Renee Strauss -- featured on TLC's "Brides of Beverly Hills" -- lost a lawsuit filed by some very unhappy, ex-employees.  Seems Renee blew off the judgment ... in excess of $500,000, which includes the winning side's attorney's fees.

Under California law, if a merchant doesn't pay a judgment, the Sheriff can do some western-style justice, in the form of seizing merchandise.  And that's exactly what the Sheriff did.


As for what was seized ... wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, headpieces and veils, tiaras, shoes, gloves, jewelry, garters and hankies. 

Those Sheriff's are gonna look mighty perty ... we kid -- the schmatas can eventually be sold to satisfy the judgment.

Calls to Renee were not returned.

Star Smith said: It should be "sheriffs," not "Sheriff's." There should be no apostrophe and it should not be capitalized.

Wrong and wrong. Why do the dumb and worthless always take the time out of their busy schedules to scour over every article to try and "correct" professionals and point a finger saying "oh oh!! SEE! I caught this one not being perfect!" In fact, the Sheriff did not show up and perform the raid, it was his deputies...the Sheriff's deputies. See how that makes sense? Grammar Nazi fail.
