Broken spigot, rusty stuck pipe help!!!

ok so basically ill let the pictures do the talking

spigot starts spraying out of threads, i take it off and this is what i find





threads broke off.

so now i have been trying to unscrew it, but for the life of me it is not coming loose,

i sprayed alot of wd40 and let it set over night, and tried tapping on the sides pretty hard to see if it would loosen it...no go


here is what the whole thing looks like, im trying to unscrew the top part. and the arrow is showing where i have been spraying the wd40 and tapping

so i just needs some ideas on what i should do. Any tips for getting that top part loose...




thanks for everyones help, hopefully i can get this fixed soon, as i have the water shutoff to the house

Heat it up a little with a torch. Or you could undo the union below this tee, place a pipe wrench on the pipe coming from the wall and unscrew the tee, removing the entire piece. You can replace with new pieces, and the union will go right back in place. You can work from a workbench that way.
