Renee Strauss' fancy wedding dresses and star-treatment customer service may have landed hera TLC reality show, but her failure to pay the amount she owes in a lawsuit judgment has landed her a raid and seizure of her merchandise.

Featured on "Brides of Beverly Hills," the shop is now bare of goods, thanks to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies coming in to remove the goods, because Strauss neglected to pay over $500,000 she owes after losing a lawsuit filed by disgruntled former employees, reports TMZ.

"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," explains the gossip site. "And that's exactly what the Sheriff did."

The show's 13-episode run aired from June to September on TLC, and is still showing in re-runs. Strauss has not commented yet on the LASD raid.
