" star Mary-Louise Parker
adamantly denies calling a New York antique shop owner a "f*g" ... and threatening to have him KILLED ... despite the shop owner's accusations to the contrary.
A rep for MLP tells TMZ, the actress visited the Saugerties, NY antique store on January 2nd with her friend, who was owed a check by the shop owner for selling one of her purses.
The rep says the shop owner refused to pay Parker's friend ... and an argument ensued, during which the owner tried to take advantage of Parker's celebrity status by claiming she had threatened his life. The rep insists Parker had nothing to do with the fight.
In fact, the rep says as soon as it became clear to Parker that she was being roped into the situation ... Parker left.
As for the "f*g" accusation -- Parker's rep says anyone who knows the actress knows she would never say that word.
The owner -- a man named Daniel Seldin -- had filed an incident report with police following the alleged altercation, accusing Parker of threatening his life, saying, "DO YOU WANT TO WAKE UP TOMORROW? I'LL MAKE ONE PHONE CALL." Seldin said Parker also called him a "f*g."
We spoke to Seldin who insists his story is legit, adding, "I felt totally berated and violated." Seldin says he has since paid Parker's friend her money ... despite the incident.
Seldin snapped a photo of Parker while she was in the store. He says it was taken during her homophobic outburst.

, 46, both blossomed at the same event in NYC this week.
Question is ...
Mary-Louise Parker and her two children arrived at JFK over the weekend and were greeted by an out-of-control snapstorm that frightened the bejesus out of her, and the kids.
The "Weeds" star was with son Will and daughter Ash when they got into an elevator, while hyper-aggressive paps went over the line, holding the door open to try to get their shot and frightening the boy -- drawing what sounded like a sharp rebuke from him.
It's the latest instance of photogs getting uncomfortably close to stars' kids; just last week, Jennifer Garner and Liv Tyler
had to fend off paps who couldn't keep a reasonable distance.
"Weeds" star Mary Louise Parker was snapped on Thursday holding the latest accessory to sweep Hollywood -- a Third World baby! Adorable!
The lovely duo were attached at the hip, as MLP chatted on her cell phone after taking the little one to a doctor in New York.
Mary Louise already has a 3-year-old son from a previous relationship with loser
actor Billy Crudup.
Mary Louise Parker's performance on Showtime's marijuana-themed comedy, "Weeds
," is critically acclaimed, but it's her rockin' bod that has hit a new high! MILF alert!
The 42-year-old actress/mom appears in nothing but a long, slithering snake in ads for the third season of the series. Parker is smokin' hot!
When she was seven months pregnant, Parker's boyfriend of 7 years, actor Billy Crudup, left her for Claire Danes. Danes has since left Crudup for Brit actor Hugh Dancy. Karma may be a bitch, but MLP looks dope
If you thought that Showtime was high on the second season of its budding sitcom "Weeds," you're absolutely right. Their extensive marketing push in advance of the show's August 14th premiere is a stoner's delight, with brownies, "Munchie Mobiles" passing out edibles all over the country, and a magazine ad that's sure to make delicate noses scrunch up in puzzlement -- or perhaps inhale with pleasure.
In the August 24 issue of Rolling Stone
, on newsstands this Friday, Showtime has placed a scent-strip ad (you know, the kind that you pull open to reveal, normally, perfume or cologne) that smells suspiciously like the flowering plant known scientifically as Cannabis sativa.
(Not that we know what that smells like, of course. We'll let you make up your own mind about the quality of the grade.) The critically-acclaimed "Weeds"
tells the story of a suburban mom (Mary-Louise Parker) who sells marijuana to make ends meet for her family.
Next Monday, the day of the premiere, Showtime will also be handing out brownies all over New York, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and Boston, and the network has already dispatched "Munchie Mobiles" passing out Frito Lay and Ben & Jerry's products starting today in New York, with additional stops on the Jersey Shore, in Boston, and in Newport, RI.
