Lisa Vanderpump Doggy Fashion Lawsuit Tossed

12/5/2017 9:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's lawyers didn't screw the pooch on the lawsuit she was facing over doggy clothing -- it's been dropped for good.

The suit -- filed by dog boutique Fifi & Romeo against Lisa -- has been dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can't refile it. Looks like Lisa might have thrown them a bone, as in a few bucks, because F&R asked the court to toss the case.

We broke the story ... the boutique sued Lisa for allegedly failing to promote their company after they agreed to dress Giggy for events and photo shoots. 

We've reached out to both Lisa and F&R to see if they did in fact reach a settlement. No word back from either side.

Lisa Vanderpump is expanding her empire, and she's counting on a couple of Toms to make it happen.

Our sources say the plan is to open the new restaurant in November ... right around the same time the new season of 'VR' debuts.

We're told Lisa's still working on a possible deal with Sandoval and Schwartz regarding ownership and management.

Jax Taylor must have been drinking Mai Tais during his geography class ... because apologizing to the "city of Hawaii" for his shoplifting antics just doesn't cut it. 

The "Vanderpump Rules" star was leaving Villa Blanca in Bev Hills Thursday when our photog asked him about the photo we got of him drinking a daiquiri in Waikiki, just before he copped a plea in his felony sunglasses case.

'Vanderpump Rules' Star Agent Demands Cut of Raise and Wins

2/17/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Vanderpump Rules" star Tom Sandoval got a sweet bump in salary, but tried to cut his old agent out of the equation ... according to docs filed by the agent.  

Peter Young, the owner of STG talent agency, says he helped Tom land a 5 year contract with "Vanderpump Rules" -- but he was hardly breaking the bank. Young says Sandoval got just under $38k for the first 2 seasons. Young was supposed to get 10 percent, but says he got a paltry $1,300.

Before season 3, Tom renegotiated his 'Vanderpump' deal without using Young and said, "I just don't want to pay you anymore" ... according to the docs.  

Young says he's heard Tom is making $15k per episode now -- though he doesn't know the exact amount, but since he made the original deal ... Young griped to the state labor commission that he still deserves his 10 percent. 

The labor commission agreed and ordered Tom to pay up, but he's appealing the decision.

EXCLUSIVE

Jax Taylor from "Vanderpump Rules" should exercise his right to remain silent, because he's a little too loose lipped for his own good following his arrest in Hawaii.

"Vanderpump Rules" had to jettison Stassi Schroeder from the show because she made one FATAL mistake -- calling Lisa Vanderpump ... OLD.

That rationale comes courtesy of co-star Peter Madrigal, who took the opportunity Wednesday to absolutely trash his now former co-star.  

Check it out ... Madrigal is downright angry about Stassi going after the boss lady, and straight up excited she's gone. His attempt to give her a friendly-ish kiss off is cute and transparent as hell.

As TMZ first reported, Stassi's attitude is what did her in ... and she's not only off the show, she's out at all of Lisa's restaurants too.
