'Sopranos' Star

EXPLODES On

Crew Member

5/4/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Sopranos" star Vincent Pastore went on an expletive-filled rant this weekend ... after a crew member on his new reality show accused him of drinking too much to drive -- and TMZ has the footage.


According to the clip, the female crew member on VH1's new restaurant-themed "Famous Food" -- which also stars Heidi Montag, Danielle Staub, and Ashley Dupre -- refused to return Vinnie's car after a long day of shooting, claiming the actor had been drinking a lot ... and Vinnie FLIPPED.

Vinnie denies drinking in the clip -- insisting he poured his wine back into the bucket all night ... but the crew member doesn't budge.

We're told Vinnie eventually abandoned his crusade -- and caught a ride home with a friend. Better safe than sorry.

Shows how cheap Vh1 is they don't even hire drivers to take their cast to and from tapings.

unfortunately she will likely get fired -- but KUDOs for stopping someone from doing something that could have had dire consequences to innocent people.

If he has any class, he sent her some flowers in the morning. I won't hold my breath. Whether he was .08 or not, she did the right thing. And I agree about the raise, but it should also involve a promotion. That's the kind of person you want working for you. Loyalty to your job, not some two-bit 'star'. A sadly rare thing, particularly in L.A.

Big ***** is a hot headed, bi-polar nutjob who probably got written out of the Sopranos because his unstable ass has no self control. Hey Vinnie, eat some mortadella, and calm down like a nice pup...lol.
