Latest TMZ Departure Perpetuates ‘Male Zone’ M.O.

Last Friday, March 4th, senior producer Vania Stuelp‘s return stint at TMZ came to an end when her contract was not renewed. Word is that Stuelp (pictured) and Harvey Levin didn’t exactly always see eye to eye, despite the fact that – as previously reported by FishbowlLA – she has the same attorney as Lindsay Lohan (!)

TMZ Producer Works Both Sides of Tabloid Trench

The original item appeared on TMZ.com January 27th, 2010. Under the headline “Brawl in LA Court”, the gossip website outlined how one of their former employees – Vania Stuelp (pictured) – was involved in a scuffle with a bailiff in her new role as public information officer for the LA County court system.

Stuelp has since returned to the TMZ fold. The irony is that at the time, the senior producer was trying to confiscate a videotape from a French TV crew after they had filmed, against her orders, reality TV star Alexis Neiers (Pretty Wild). That’s when bailiff Ronald Cabrera intervened and, allegedly, roughed her up.

Per Stuelp’s current complaint, she is seeking punitive damages for assault and battery, negligence and the emotional distress of being humiliated and handcuffed in front of a crowd of onlookers. She is represented in this case not by Harvey Levin but rather Shawn Chapman Holley of Santa Monica firm Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert.
