Oksana's Lawyer Pulls Plug on Oprah Interview

10/5/2010 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva will not be doing Oprah Winfrey's show, but contrary to a CNN report, it's not because the judge gagged her ... it's because one of her lawyers said, "No way."

There's a report out that Judge Scott Gordon ordered Oksana to pull the plug on "Oprah" ... we know that's simply not the case. 

Judge Gordon did not order Oksana to stay clear of "Oprah."  Period.

Sources connected with the case tell us there was a conflict between Oksana's lawyers -- Anne Kiley, her family lawyer, was strongly against Oksana doing the interview.  Sources tell us ... Daniel Horowitz, who arranged the interview, wanted her to do it -- as did Oksana -- but ultimately Horowitz deferred to Kiley.

they only pulled the proverbial because they know she is gonna open that huge ugly, unpunched-by-mel mouth and blow her own case. Deep doodie for the Skanky one just keeps getting deeper

Thanks. A Trope partner...now that makes sense...and so does this lawyer. I'm beginning to understand some of the in-fighting and disagreements between certain OG attorneys.

If this is the best Oprah can do as far as interveiw subjects go, then yeah, its time for her to take a walk and stop her show.

No one cares enough about this gold digger. She is obviously all about money and furthering her "singing" career. I bet she's made more $$$ off of havein kids and living of famous men that she ever will singing

If I were Horowitz I wouldn't want her anywhere near an open microphone without someone actively coaching her [like the RO and TMZ interviews]. Of course Oprah would lob softballs at her, but Oksana is not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to selling herself to the public.

Most of the planet would kill to be on Oprah's show. Oksana sure would do anything. If she's not going on it must be eating her like a cancer. Lucky she's been keeping those 'nuts' in her cheeks... looks like it's going to be a long winter. Take a look at the next photo... cheeks will be ever so slightly expanded and she has just added Horro's teensy gonads. Stock up honey!

I think that CNN story said a "source," but that the source was not necessarily one of OG's "lowers."

Looks like the child custody lawyers are pulling all the right moves for Oksana. Anne Kiley should get a bonus from Oksana.

The other group of lawyers for the extortion/domestic violence like Horowitz are really grasping at straws and are on track to destroy Oksana.

Hmmmm.... don't know who actually pulled the plug - but for the moment, I am just happy it happened. Hopefully this interview will never see the light of day.

Okay..the CNN story was according to a "source close to Grigorieva," but her attorneys had no comment. So much for a source close to Grigorieva...they can't seem to get anything accurate...perhaps another bodyguard?

Who'sThat    

so CNN, the mainstream gets it wrong? and TMZ gossip site gets it right? way to go Harvey!

wonder how long this attorney will be staying since there appears to be some internal turmoil, fighting with ideas and PR vs. court orders? who wins?

in a way, would have been great to see her on Oprah and hear what she says...it could all have been used against her in court!
