'Little Women: LA' Star Christy Gibel Sues M.D.s You Botched My Spinal Surgery

12/4/2017 12:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of the stars of "Little Women: LA" is taking a bunch of doctors to court for a BIG payday ... 'cause she claims they screwed up her neck in surgery.

Christy Gibel just sued some M.D.s from a surgery center in Beverly Hills called 90210 Surgery Medical Center as well as Cedars-Sinai and other private practices, claiming the whole lot screwed up a spinal cord surgery she underwent with them in 2016.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Christy says she went under last November for a procedure called an anterior discectomy and spinal cord decompression, and during a couple post-op visits ... the doctors overseeing the matter misled her despite worsening symptoms.

She says she felt her left eye drooping, and her tongue swelling, and was unable to speak for a while -- all of which she says she was told would subside over time ... but it didn't. She also claims they admitted her jugular vein was nicked during surgery.

The reality star is suing for negligence and asking for an unspecified amount in damages and medical costs related to the alleged botched surgery. We've reached out to 90210 and Cedars ... so far, no word back.

They've even reached out to Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa to collab, but no word back. Yet.

EXCLUSIVE

'Little Women: ATL' star Juicy caught a plate of chicken wings to the face during a fight with 2 of her castmates ... and TMZ got the footage.

It all went down at a restaurant in May, and as luck would have it ... show cameras were rolling. Minnie and her mother, Tammie, were pissed Juicy didn't believe Minnie was pregnant and had miscarried.

It got so heated ... Tammie, who is NOT a little person, decided to go HAM with the chicken. The clip, which airs in Wednesday's episode, is an instant classic. 

Juicy wasn't amused -- she got a temporary restraining order against Tammie after the incident, but a judge later dismissed the case. Still, Juicy refused to film with Minnie and her mom for a month afterward ... and there's still bad blood.

EXCLUSIVE

Expectant "Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee is in the danger zone after going into labor only 6 months into her pregnancy ... TMZ has learned.
