4/22/2014 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
This is one for the books. The woman who was suing Lisa Vanderpump for $5 million alleging sexual harassment at her Villa Blanca restaurant -- among other things, is now willing to settle for $40K if the restaurant acknowledges some ridiculous things.
Karina Bustillos -- who claimed a Villa Blanca manager sexually harassed her in all sorts of ways -- says she'll drop the suit if she gets $40K and the following promises from Villa Blanca:
-- not to serve catfish and claim it's the more expensive tilapia
-- not to serve canned fruits and veggies and call them fresh
-- teach employees not to eat food off customers' plates
-- order kitchen staff to wash their hands frequently
And there's other stuff too, which seems like it's designed to embarrass.
Lisa Vanderpump tells TMZ ... the lawsuit is "frivolous and a clear case of malicious prosecution."

Lil Scrappy & Momma Dee:
Diamond's Lying Through Her $20K Teeth
4/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Scrappy and his mother, Momma Dee aren't taking kindly to accusations made by his ex-GF ... Scrappy tells TMZ Diamond is a "lying industry ho" who's as fake as her phony teeth and butt.
Diamond gave a radio interview Friday blasting Scrappy -- accusing him of physically abusing her -- and claiming Momma Dee stole her Louis Vuitton purses and ruined her credit by trashing a condo Diamond helped her buy.
Scrap tells TMZ Diamond lies like a rug ... saying he was never abusive and never once put his hands on her. Scrappy says she's trying to make herself relevant by throwing shade ... even though he gave her a start in music and bought "her $20K teeth and her fake ass."
He says Diamond's story of Gucci Mane slapping him down in a club is all BS. Scrappy insists they had a shoving match, nothing more.
And Momma Dee tells TMZ she never got anything of value from Diamond because "Diamond ain't never had s***."
Momma says Diamond's a "lying chamber maid" who's mad because she's not banging the prince anymore ... and says Diamond will never have any money unless she gets a "douche deal for her stank-ass p****."
BTW ... sources close to Diamond says her ass is real and she paid for her own damn teeth.
'Ice Road Truckers' Star
Charged with Kidnapping Prostitute
... And Forcing Her to Jump Out a Window [LEGENDARY MUG SHOT UPDATE]
4/21/2014 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's like something out of "Grand Theft Auto" -- one of the drivers from History Channel's "Ice Road Truckers" has been charged with 3 felonies after allegedly kidnapping a Vegas prostitute ... and forcing her to jump out a second story window.
According to official charging docs, Tim Zickuhr has been charged with first degree kidnapping, extortion, and coercion. But the story behind the charges is out of control. Seriously, out of control.
According to the police report, the prostitute -- who goes by Snow White -- told cops Tim hired her to perform services on December 18th. She says he gave her his ATM card to withdraw her payment, but he later accused her of taking too much.
She claims Tim arranged a meeting at his apartment the next day to settle their money dispute -- and he attacked, punching her in the face, and threatening to kill her if she didn't get him the money she'd stolen.
She claims Tim tied her up with backpack straps, continued to beat her, and then poured cold water on her from a mop bucket. She claims Tim then locked her in his closet and demanded a phone number for someone who could get him the money.
Stroke of genius from Snow White -- she gave Tim the phone number of a police officer she knew ... and according to the report, Tim actually called it, claiming he'd kill Snow White if $1,000 wasn't delivered to him.
Tim and the officer arranged a meeting -- but rather than leave his apartment through the front door, Tim allegedly forced Snow White out his second story window.
Long story short, the cop met Tim and immediately arrested him. The officer claims Tim sang like a canary, admitting everything ... placing the phone calls, dousing Snow White in water, locking her in a closet, and pushing her out a window. Just ... crazy.
Tim is due in court in May.
A rep for History channel had no comment -- but told us Tim hasn't been on any "Ice Road" programming since 2011.

Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch isn't messing around either -- telling us, "If you even try to illegally download this tape we will come after you full force. We have three full-time attorneys prepared and ready to go."
As we reported, the anticipation leading to the tape's release has been insane -- pre-sale numbers were through the roof ... totaling roughly $400,000.
Since the release at midnight, we're told Vivid's website has been raking in new memberships -- averaging 15 new joins every MINUTE.

Lindsay Lohan says she suffered a miscarriage during the taping of her reality show.
Lohan dropped the bombshell during the final episode of the OWN show Sunday night ... when asked to reflect on her experience with the reality show.
"No one knows this," Lohan said ... "I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off.”

4/20/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The battle lines have been drawn ... "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes says she's totes team Porsha Williams -- because Kenya Moore provoked her way into an attack.
NeNe was heading out at L.A.X. Saturday when our camera guy asked whose side she's on -- Porsha Williams or Kenya -- and NeNe didn't hold back.
As we previously reported ... Porsha and Kenya got into a full-on bitch fight last month while filming. Porsha was charged with assault and took the most glam mug shot ever while turning herself in.

I Got Hit By a Car
... I Think
4/19/2014 10:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Big Brother" Season 8 winner Evel Dick Donato is convinced a car SMASHED INTO HIM Friday night in Ireland ... and his injuries look really, really bad.
Dick posted a photo on Twitter last night showing his messed up face with the caption, "Pretty sure I got hit by a car, but I have no memory of what happened... at all."
The next morning, Dick began to recall what went down and said he was biking home after drinking at a bar in Dublin -- when suddenly, he was being woken up on the side of the road by a cab driver.
Dick refused medical treatment ... but the next morning promised his followers he'd get checked out.
The reality star -- who won a $500k grand prize in 2007 -- swears he didn't just get into a drunken bar fight ... but not going to a hospital immediately after being run over by a car sounds pretty dumb.

Through the Roof!
4/19/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There might be a new queen of sex tapes ... TMZ has learned the tape starring Mimi Faust from "Love & Hip Hop" is one of the hottest pre-sellers Vivid has ever seen.

"Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta" is set to drop Monday in full on Vivid.com and Hirsch says he's expecting sales to be massive.

Joins 'The Voice'
4/18/2014 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gwen Stefani's gonna make good money off Christina Aguilera getting knocked up -- TMZ has learned Gwen has signed on to be a judge on "The Voice."
Multiple sources connected to the show tell us ... No Doubt's lead singer will be on Season 7 ... which starts taping in June.
Producers started looking for new blood in February after Christina announced she was pregnant. Makes sense ... she'd be 8 or 9 months along by the time Season 8's battle rounds began.
We're told NBC wanted Christina to stay during her pregnancy but she's having a difficult time already and ultimately bowed out.
Gwen's deal is for one season right now, and we're told Christina has already signed on to rotate back into her spinning chair for Season 8.
NBC had no comment.

Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith -- stars of the "Love & Hip Hop" sex tape -- have a bit of an unusual fetish ... and it involves a ruler. We'll explain ...
According to sources who've seen the tape in its entirety, there is a scene where Faust measures Smith's flaccid penis with a ruler. She then says, "Let's see if we can make it grow." You can guess what happens next.
Our photog found the couple at LAX yesterday ... where they joked about popularizing a certain shower rod ... and explained why they're so into the measuring routine.
BTW ... we'll spare you the exact numbers, but it's obvious why Smith's into logging his stats.

Porsha Williams is gonna have bitches clamoring for jailhouse makeovers after they see the mug shot she just took in Atlanta.
TMZ obtained the mug shot -- taken with full hair and makeup -- when the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member turned herself in to the Fulton County Sheriff to be booked for simple battery ... a misdemeanor.
As TMZ first reported ... an arrest warrant was issued for Porsha stemming from the brawl she had with Kenya Moore while shooting RHOA.
Porsha was released immediately after posting her $2,000 bail. She paid cash.
'Love & Hip Hop' Sex Tape
Cripples Home Depot
NATIONAL SHOWER ROD SHORTAGE
4/17/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Demand is going through the roof for gymnastics-strength shower rods -- all thanks to "Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust's sex tape acrobatics -- and Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, and Walmart are struggling to keep up.
We called employees at each of the major retailers (from Georgia to Cali) and we're getting the same story -- ever since the trailer for Mimi's sex tape came out, people have been racing to purchase their own super-strong shower rods to recreate the Mimi experience.
And supplies are running out -- a customer at one Home Depot in Georgia tells us, they were totally sold out of Mimi-strength shower rods.
This is a real thing -- a Twitter search for "Mimi shower rod" shows an endless list of people trying to get their hands on one. There's even a Twitter account dedicated to it (@MimiShowerRod). And don't even get us started on the Vine videos.
We reached out to officials at Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, and Target -- no word back so far.
