Lisa Vanderpump's famous Bev Hills restaurant Villa Blanca has been hit again with a sexual harassment suit.
Pastry chef Martha Diaz filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she claims her manager touched her vagina, called her a fat, ugly whore, showed her porn on his phone and left pornographic pics in her locker.
Diaz claims she complained to upper management and does not mention the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star by name, although she does say she complained to "upper management and ownership."
The manager who allegedly harassed Diaz is different from the one who was the subject of a prior Villa Blanca lawsuit. In that case the court ruled in favor of the manager but for some reason socked the restaurant with a $100,000 punitive damages tab.
SELLING Villa Blanca

Lisa Vanderpump is selling Villa Blanca, the restaurant she made famous on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," TMZ has confirmed.
Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Hilton & Hyland -- as in Rick Hilton -- has the listing.
Lisa is coy about the sale, telling us she merely wanted an appraisal because people have expressed interest in buying the joint. But our real estate sources say Hilton & Hyland have the deal and are actively looking for a buyer.
The move comes weeks after the restaurant was socked with a $100,000 punitive damage judgment. Former waitress Karina Bustillo won that plus another $6K in her sexual harassment lawsuit.
Interesting Lisa didn't give realtor Mauricio Umansky -- Kyle Richards' hubby -- the listing.

Don't Even Think of KFC
I WANT POPEYES!
7/29/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kandi Burruss' backstage demands are HILARIOUS ... whatever you do, don't screw with her Popeyes fried chicken!
TMZ has obtained a copy of Burruss' contract rider ... listing her demands for the touring production of her musical show, "A Mother's Love" ... and she's VERY picky.
When it comes to food ... the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star demands Popeyes fried chicken. The contract states: "Please do not substitute for KFC or Churches, we know the difference."
But ... even though she won't eat KFC birds ... she insists on KFC cole slaw.
Burruss is just as finicky about her bathroom requirements ... a brand new toilet seat for starters -- which must be installed under the supervision of the road manager or an assistant. Plus, the bathroom must be fully stocked with Cottonelle toilet paper and Dove soap.
-a black Mercedes Benz Sprinter
-golf carts and umbrellas in case of rain
-a police escort to skirt traffic jams -- because "under no circumstance shall Kandi be delayed arriving at or departing" from the venue.
Kandi's rep confirms the authenticity of the contract.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is back at work -- shooting episodes for the new season -- and rumors that she's taking a leave of absence are NOT true, sources tell TMZ.
What's more ... we've learned her husband, convicted felon Apollo Nida, is back, too -- at least for a while.
We're told Phaedra and Apollo have been filming for almost a month -- trying to shoot as much as possible before he begins serving his 8-year prison sentence for money fraud.
Sources tell us ... their storyline centers on Apollo's conviction and the upheaval it's caused in their relationship ... a relationship that appears to be on the brink of divorce.
We're told Phaedra may skip some filming to take care of family business ... but there's no way she's leaving the show.

7/27/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub will probably get the cold shoulder the next time she shops at Nordstrom ... because she just screwed them over in bankruptcy court ... and she royally screwed the guy in her sex tape in the unforgettable onion bagel scene.
Staub got a sweet deal in bankruptcy court, excusing more than $200,000 in debt. Among those who are saying bye bye to their money ... Sex tape partner Stephen Zalewski won't get $100K from his defamation lawsuit against her.
In addition to Nordstrom, which is out more than $7K ... Ford is saying bye bye to $3K, American Express is out more than $7K. and her lawyers are out more than $30K ... but no one feels sorry for them.
Finally for Danielle ... a clean discharge.

"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.
'Real Housewives' Daughter
Busted for DUI
7/22/2014 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bella Hadid -- the 17-year-old daughter of Yolanda Foster -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- was arrested early Tuesday morning for DUI ... TMZ has learned.
Bella -- whose stepdad is legendary music producer David Foster and whose dad is Mohamed Hadid -- was driving on PCH at around 4 AM when she allegedly blew through a stop sign and almost collided with an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. patrol car.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Bella was pulled over and the deputy detected a strong odor of alcohol.
Bella blew a .14 -- which approaches double the legal limit -- but because she's a minor it's even worse. She can't drive with ANY alcohol in her system.
It gets worse. Bella was driving on a suspended license.
She was arrested and ultimately released into the care of her famous stepdad.
BITES THE DUST
During Vegas Ho Down (VIDEO)

Kenya Moore ate some serious carpet Saturday during a Vegas high-rollers competition.
Kenya and other "Real Housewives" from all the franchises were each paired with 4 real high rollers in competitions that included ... well, a lot of lame games. The shindig was held in front of a big audience at Caesars Palace.
One game was teaching the high rollers how to walk a runway. A confident Kenya sauntered down the aisle but bit the dust.
The way she recovers is truly impressive ... one of the best recoveries we've seen.
I'll Do Rehab If ...
It Gets Me Out of Prison Early
7/20/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
According to court documents obtained by TMZ ... the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member agreed to a 500-hour "intense" drug treatment program during his 8 year sentence -- even though he's not currently addicted to anything.
Law enforcement sources connected to the case tell us Apollo only got into the program because he has a prior DUI -- and we're told his real motivation is lowering his sentence.
Inmates who successfully complete the program typically get early releases.
Of course, there's no such loophole to help him skirt the $1.9 mil he has to pay back to his victims.
Phaedra Bailed On Me …
So I'm Ready to Bail on Our Marriage
7/18/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Apollo Nida may be going into prison a married man -- but it's doubtful he'll come out that way … because his wife, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Phaedra Parks "didn't even f***ing show up" for his sentencing.
Nida -- who just got 8 years for check fraud and money laundering -- went off about Phaedra with Atlanta's B-100, admitting he's still "salty" about how she's treated him since he got charged.
Just as fascinating … Nida talking about accepting his punishment like a man, but also copping to crying like a baby over it.
Forced to Make it Right
By Ponying Up $2 Mil

Apollo Nida just got his tab for committing check fraud and money laundering -- $1.9 MILLION in restitution.
TMZ has obtained court docs which breakdown who gets the money Apollo must now pay. Some of the heavy hitters include:
-- JP Morgan Chase $828,300

-- Delta Airlines $24,985
-- State of California $15,778
-- State of Connecticut $45,525
-- State of Texas $39,275

He'll have plenty of time to think about his misdeeds. Apollo was sentenced to 8 years in federal prison.
Sues Ex BF For Brutality
And Hot Dog Humiliation
7/14/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Camille Grammer has lashed out at her ex-boyfriend, suing him for beating her up in a Dallas hotel room last year ... and humiliating her by shoving a hot dog in her mouth.
Camille claims in her suit -- filed by Larry Stein -- Dimitri Charalambopoulos beat her to a pulp in the hotel room ... just after she returned from the hospital after undergoing cancer surgery.
Kelsey's ex is now counter-suing Dimitri -- after he sued her for defamation -- claiming her story is true and she has more than enough photos, witnesses and other evidence to establish it.
As for the hot dog allegation ... Camille says Dimitri is a drunk and once during a trip to Hawaii he was doing so many shots she asked him to stop. She says he reacted by shoving a hot dog in her mouth and commenting how much she enjoyed having hot dogs crammed down her throat.
And this allegation is even more shocking. Camille claims just after her surgery Dimitri came into the hospital while she was still hopped up on drugs. She says he put a ring on her finger, which she thought was sweet, until she became lucid a day or 2 later and noticed the ring had a plastic penis on it and she was wearing it in front of her family and the hospital staff.
Camille wants money for her suffering.
