'Housewives' Chick Kim D

I Couldn't Rip Off That Jeweler

I Don't Even KNOW Him

One of the 'Real Housewives' is going full Mick Jagger on the jeweler who's suing her for ripping off designs -- saying the guy is using her, and he better get off of her cloud ... before she sues his ass. 
 
Kim DePaola from 'RHNJ' tells TMZ ... Ohio jeweler Constantino Frangopolous is "delusional" for claiming she jacked anything from him because she swears she's never met the guy or even heard of him.  

TMZ broke the story ... Frangopolous sued Kim -- claiming they had a verbal agreement to design jewelry for her to wear and promote on the show ... but instead she copied his pieces and sold them as her own.

KD thinks Frangopolous is trying to piggyback on her fame, and her only response to his lawsuit is ... "Hop off my coattails and try to mess with someone whose intelligence level is as low as [his]."

She's thinking about suing for defamation.

She's so full if crap she's bursting. This pig has the distinction of being the biggest dirtbag on Bravo.

She looks coked out in this picture. Her pupils are almost completely dilated and there's a camera flashing in her face. Trash.

Hell, she is absolutely delighted to get her name mentioned on TMZ. Virtually everybody on reality shows is a fame-seeking whore. Publicity is their god!

Tranny... Kim is her stage name. I'm sure Kevin is more appropriate.

"A verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's printed on" an old saying but an accurate one. The guy has no proof and his lawsuit will be thrown out, but in the meantime he gets his name in the news, and people to look at his designs. I would say she has a pretty good counter suit. (I should add I have no idea who any of the people in this story are since I don't watch any show that has "housewives" in the title.)

She's not actually a housewife, just a tag-a-long.
