There is no satisfactory way. You can use a gate but it'll make the vocals sound choppy. I suppose if you'd really good and don't mind maddeningly tedious work you could try hand editing in a DAW, redrawing the signal at the ends of phrases, but that won't do anything for the muddy sound DURING the phrase. And the ends still probably won't sound right.
So no, there is no satisfactory way. Recut the vocal or live with it.
