2/5/2016 12:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant PUMP had some surprise patrons Friday morning -- LA County firefighters who rushed in to put down a kitchen fire ... TMZ has learned. 

Fire department sources tell us they arrived around 11 AM and quickly put down a small smoldering electrical fire that was contained within a wall. It caused no injuries or major damage. 

'RHOBH' and "Vanderpump Rules" fans know PUMP well, and as a result ... it's also become a big tourist stop. We're told they'll be open for biz tonight ... if you can get a reservation. 


Abby Lee Miller Warring Over $5 Deal ... I'll Insta-Bomb On You, Pizza Hut!!

2/5/2016 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0205-abby-lee-miller-pizza-tmz-02update_graphic_red_bar10:30 AM PT -- We checked and the Pizza Hut Abby called does not offer the $5 flavor menu -- it's a national deal, but individual stores don't have to honor it. update_grey_gray_bar

Abby Lee Miller treated a Pizza Hut manager like a pre-teen girl in a tutu -- unleashing her social media soldiers on the guy after an argument over her order.

The "Dance Moms" instructor went ballistic Thursday night when she called a PH in Santa Monica to place an order. Our well placed pizza sources tell us Abby was put on hold, like anyone else might be.

When a PH employee got on the line, we're told she inquired about the "$5 pizza deal" ... but when the employee didn't know what that was, Abby got pissed and asked for a manager. 

We're told the convo got heated. Abby claims PH hung up on her, and then she hit the nuclear button -- posting the store's phone # to her 2 million Instagram followers, asking them to call "the idiot who keeps hanging up on paying customers." 

0205-sub-abby-lee-miller-instagram-01Our sources say the store was flooded with calls until closing, and it was so bad they had to stop answering the phones. We're told PH has been reaching out to Abby, asking her to take down the post as they're concerned it will continue to screw up business, but she hasn't responded.

BTW, seems Abby was asking about the $5 flavor menu. The lady knows her pizza!

2/3/2016 10:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0202-ariane-bellamar-tmz-01"Beverly Hills Nannies" star Ari Bellamar claims she wound up in the hospital after a valet attendant went ballistic and spit into her family's car.

Ari says the nasty run-in went down outside Dan Tana's, the famous Italian restaurant in West Hollywood. After dropping their car off at Dan Tana's valet, Ari and her family decided to hit up a different restaurant right next door for takeout.

She says when they came back their car was blocked and the valet attendant was pissed they didn't eat at Dan Tana's. Ari claims he body checked her husband and then hocked a loogie into a napkin and threw it inside their car as they drove off.

Ari is 4 months pregnant and says the stress made her start spotting so much, she was admitted to a hospital. The baby is okay, but Ari's husband has filed a battery report with cops.

Dan Tana's says the valet is not its employee, but works for an outside company.

We're sure he'd rather be in San Fran right about now ... but date night with your smokin' hot girlfriend at Mr Chow ain't exactly a bad way to spend a Monday night either.

Italian Soccer Legend Props to Olive Garden ... It's Legit

1/21/2016 7:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's one of the greatest Italian soccer players ever ... and super rich so he can eat at the best restaurants in the world ... so we had to ask Alessandro Del Piero -- whatcha think of Olive Garden?

FYI -- ADP is a futbol god who led Italy to a World Cup victory back in 2006 ... and is widely considered one of the best players of his generation.

He's also a big fan of Italian cuisine. 

So, we put Olive Garden to the test ... and apparently, it's got the authentic stamp of approval! 

Maybe he can double date with Kobe?

0121-mick-jagger-ronnie-wood-splashRolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood got all Brazilian with their MUCH younger chicks, but we ain't talking thongs -- we're talking meat. Tons of meat.

The Stones hit up the carnivore mecca on Wednesday night ... Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao in Bev Hills ... where it's a guarantee you'll leave FULL.

Odd dinner spot for Mick -- who brought his 20-something ballerina GF ... but perfect for Ronnie and his pregnant 37-year-old wife, Sally. Cravings, man.

Beef. It's not just for Mick and Keith Richards anymore.

Scott, Lina and one of Scott's pals lunched at the Polo Lounge in Bev Hills. They were kissing inside the restaurant, located inside the very popular Beverly Hills Hotel.

Lina's a Wilhelmina L.A. model who knew him for awhile, but a month ago they went to Nobu restaurant in West Hollywood and the relationship changed. We're told they talk and text all the time and in the last month they've seen each other frequently.

Miss Colombia Burger King Wants to Crown Her

1/6/2016 11:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Miss Colombia may have lost her crown, but companies pitching burgers and beers want to re-crown her and make her super famous and wealthy.

Sources connected with the scorned Miss Universe contestant tell TMZ, a high-powered manager -- who reps Sofia Vergara -- is working on her behalf and is in talks with Burger King for a fantastic commercial. Miss Colombia would star in a kids' meal spot where everyone keeps their crown.

And we're told the manager -- Luis Balaguer -- is also talking to Corona about a commercial featuring Ariadna Gutierrez on the beach with a cold one. The hook -- "corona" is "crown" in Spanish.

And there's more ... we're told Ariadna's dream is to become a Victoria's Secret angel, and our sources say Balaguer was in touch with the company on Tuesday.

BTW ... we're told Ariadna was enraged at both the Miss Universe pageant and Steve Harvey after the screw-up and hasn't returned a single call to either. Fact is, it's the best thing that could have happened to her.

Ayers was out at Mastro's grabbing a "light" bite when we asked him what would be the first thing he stuffs his face with when the season is finito ... and he no longer has to watch what he eats.

Peep the clip -- Akeem KNOWS what he wants ... and how he wants it ... saying he's going full fat boy at the fast food joint, with "animal style" everything (grilled onions, special sauce, cheese).

See, they diet ... it's not totally awesome being in the NFL ... just like 98% awesome.
