"Real Housewives of New York" star Aviva Drescher doesn't have a leg to stand on ... by claiming she never used her prosthetic appendage as a weapon -- and there's video proving she's lying.
We got Drescher outside Sanctuary Hotel in NYC Tuesday night and asked about her EPIC argument on the RHONY season finale ... when she angrily detached her artificial leg and HURLED it toward Heather Thomson.
Drescher claims she wasn't trying to hurt anyone with her prosthetic projectile.
But you gotta see her reaction ... when she discovers some guys get their rocks off ... by watching women who take it off ... their leg, that is.
Rich Homie Quan
I Didn't Hit A Fan
I Bitch Slapped A Thief!
7/24/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rich Homie Quan wasn't lashing out at a fan when he smacked a guy at a concert earlier this month ... he was dishing out justice to a dude he says was TRYING TO ROB HIM.
As we reported ... Quan was performing on stage in Racine, Wisconsin July 4 when someone in the crowd grabbed his arm. It appeared the man was trying to pull himself on stage.
But a rep for Quan tells TMZ ... the guy wasn't trying to steal the limelight ... he was trying to steal Quan's watch ... right off his wrist. And that's why the rapper knocked him upside the head.
Quan himself tells us: "The person that tried to rob me was not one of my fans. My fans are loyal to me. I did what anyone else would do if they were being robbed."
Heated Argument with Bodybuilders
At Venice Beach
7/19/2014 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Alex Pettyfer pissed off a group of jacked up dudes working out at Muscle Beach in Venice ... and we got video of their heated exchange.
Pettyfer was passing the famous weight lifting hangout when he asked the guys working out how much they lift. For some reason, a few of the lifters took offense ... and both sides started arguing.
In the video, one of the lifters accuses Alex of talking "s**t" ... which the "Magic Mike" star adamantly denies.
The musclehead who mainly argued with Alex tell us ... it started when the actor asked him how much he lifted. The dude lashed back, "How much do you make?" For some reason that triggered the argument.
Eventually Alex left after the two sides worked things out.
Shortly after the incident, the lifters told our photog it was just a misunderstanding ... and they've got nothing but love for Pettyfer.
Cops Say Slap was JUSTIFIED
7/18/2014 10:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tim McGraw is NOT in trouble with the law for slapping a woman at a concert ... in fact, law enforcement sources in ATL tell TMZ ... Tim may actually be the VICTIM.
Our sources at Atlanta PD tell us ... they've seen the video of Tim bitch slapping a woman who grabbed onto him at Sunday's concert. TMZ has 2 views of the incident. In one it looks like she might be grabbing for his crotch, but in another it looks like she's trying to rip his jeans.
The sources say ... the woman has NOT complained to police, and until she does no action will be taken. But they add, it seems to them the woman is the aggressor and Tim's slap is "a common reaction." Nonetheless, cops tell us if she complains they'll investigate.
Take a close look at the video. It appears Tim reacts by making a movement that causes her to release his leg ... but then he takes a quick beat before hauling off and slapping her. So the slap looks gratuitous.
McGraw is no stranger to grabby fans. Back in 2007, a woman tried to grab his junk ... and his wife, Faith Hill, was quick to give her a stern talking to.

(UPDATE: NEW VIDEO)

Tim McGraw ferociously slapped a woman in the face during a concert Sunday ... after she appeared to aggressively rip his jeans.
TMZ got video of Tim's concert at Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta. You see him walk into the crowd and a sea of hands engulfs him as he sings, "Truck Yeah."
Look closely ... you see a woman slap Tim twice ... first on his knee and then she goes in a second time.
Tim then smacks her.
Tim's rep tells TMZ, "Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd.
The rep says, "He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show."

The lawsuit doesn't say where or why the alleged scrap went down, but it must have hurt like hell because Williams adds ... Katt was "wearing his diamond rings which served as a brass knuckles weapon."
Williams claims he suffered a concussion, loose tooth, and unspecified facial and head injuries.

Cast Wants her Fired

Smack talk about crack triggered the all-out brawl on the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" set ... ending with a security guard getting a piece of flesh ripped off his body... and they say Joseline Hernandez is the culprit and they want her FIRED.
Cast and crew who were present during the melee tell TMZ ... Tuesday night's fight started when Benzino called Stevie J a crackhead. Stevie J then charged Benzino, yelling "f*** you."
Stevie J's GF Joseline then amped things up by attacking Benzino's wife Althea, punching her in the face so hard everyone around heard a crack. Joseline then pulled out part of Althea's weave.
But Joseline's handiwork wasn't done ... Joseline then made a beeline for Waka Flocka Flame's wife, Tami -- yanking out Tami's pony tail weave. Waka's mom Debra jumped in, punching Joseline in the head and ripping out her extensions.
Security then booted Joseline from the set. On her way out she passed shower-rod queen Mimi Faust in the stairway ... elbowing her in the back and shoving her down the stairs.
The security guard tried to subdue Joseline, who then bit the guard, ripping off a piece of flesh.
So now ... a number of cast members are making a play to get producers to fire Joseline.

… Cops Called

9:32 A.M. PDT -- Sources close to the show tell us ... producers had an emergency meeting Tuesday night to address how to proceed with reunion episode -- which continues filming today. We're told cast members will be kept in separate areas during filming ... and they've done away with the live audience for safety reasons.
A huge brawl erupted during the taping of the "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" reunion show in NYC Tuesday night … leaving several cast members -- and their weaves -- injured.
Multiple sources on the set tell us the fight involved Benzino, his fiancee Althea, Stevie J, Joseline, Debra, Tammy, and Mimi -- and the whole mess started when Benzino cracked a joke about Stevie J and Joseline doing drugs.
We're told Stevie jumped up to get in Benzino's grill, but security guards stopped him. That's when --according to witnesses -- Stevie's girl Joseline sneak attacked Althea.
After that, all hell broke loose -- weaves were torn out in the chaos -- and every time security broke up one fight … a different one would spark up between other cast members.
We're told most of the fighting was between the women -- although at least one male security guard took a shot to the face … from one of the chicks.
From what we can tell the only smart decision all night was someone calling 911. Cops and paramedics responded -- at least three people got treatment.
We know what you're wondering, and the answer is -- YES … we're told VH1 cameras were rolling during most of the violence.
The seeds of ratchetness appear to have been sown Monday night ... when a nude pic of Benzino and Althea was posted on Stevie J's Twitter page.

Katt Williams is under criminal investigation for committing a deadly form of whip lash ... so claims a man who says the comedian used his Rolls-Royce in an attempt to mow him down.
Katt was tooling around near LAX Tuesday ... when a guy named Glen Jackson pulled alongside and tried to snap a cell phone pic. Jackson says it triggered a volcanic reaction from Katt.

Jackson says he stumbled out of the car, choking from the fumes, when Katt rolled his Rolls smack into his leg ... then doused him in pepper spray again before driving off.
Inglewood police are investigating a possible assault with a deadly weapon -- the Rolls. They'd like a chit chat with Katt and the bodyguard.
It's the 4th violent confrontation with Katt in 2 weeks ... two altercations on PCH ... and an alleged gun attack at an L.A. comedy club.

We now know Paris' side and it's WAY different. There were only 5 or 6 people at the house when Jeremy and a few of his friends just walked in without invitation. They were unwelcome and Brandon Davis asked them to leave. Jeremy went ballistic, saying, "Don't you know who I am? I was on 'Baywatch' and 'Celebrity Rehab'."
Jeremy then grabbed one of the guys and started choking him out, almost with superhuman strength. Several people jumped him to subdue him, and Jasmine Waltz hit him over the head with a vodka bottle.

7/11/2014 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Columbus Short is finally revealing exactly what drove him into such a rage that he delivered a knockout blow to a guy's face earlier this year -- and it might change your opinion of the hot-headed actor.
Short was on Atlanta's V-103 radio station when he was asked about the bar fight back in March, and he said ... "I had to defend my wife at a bar. This man was being highly, highly disrespectful ... slapping her in the face with $20 bills."
TMZ broke the story ... Columbus knocked out Felton Hyche III, and at the time all we knew was that Hyche had allegedly said or done something rude to Short's wife.
Columbus also explains that Hyche was the one who got physical first -- but if what he says about the money to his wife's face is true, we gotta ask ...
