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.

OH SNAP!!! I was really looking forward to seeing Greedieva "torpedo any remaining shreds of credibility" she had left on national television.

I suspect due to the current chain of events, Ms. Kiley REALLY PUT HER FOOT DOWN!!! Greedieva's legal team probably had very limited control over the type of questions that Oprah could ask their client. Perhaps, Mr. Horowitz could line up a gig for Greedieva on the Jerry Springer Show. She would have fit in quite nicely with the "DUBIOUS CALIBER" of his regular guests. With Mrs. Gibson and her children as "surprise guests" that would have been a "SPECTACLE TO BEHOLD".

It is already too late Ox's lawyers as Ox already lied to the Oprah show about the mediated agreement in May.

Hellooooo....how can an attorney with an self respect represent this woman who is WASTING LUCIA'S INHERITANCE on attorneys fees?

This is over the top already. Are the various players allowing this to drag out just to waste Mel's money?

Oksana makes me ashamed to be a woman and all these attorney's are shaming the decent attorneys with this legal abuse.

this kinda disappointed me. why does her own lawyer have to be the one to gag her? i thought there was officially a gag order in place which prohibits both mel and oksana from talking about it the public. why didn't the judge enforce this rule to begin with? the more this drags on, the more i think oksana won't ever be penalized for any of her actions. if this had been any other person, i think she would have been arrested a long time ago. but becoz it's mel, i bet they'd allow her to screw him over and let her get away with it. i don't condone me's rants, but he doesn't deserve what oksana and her lawyers are doing to him.

Oksana proably wanted to tell Oprah about how Timothy Dalton beat her and her lawyer had a heart attack.

It's interesting to note that all the men she has been with are cheap, abusers, drug addicts or have other various things wrong with them but she has no faults. Makes a person sit back and go hmmmmmm doesn't it?

Could it be that yesterday the judge informed them that he would up hold the gag order ... or that there were to be no more interviews or statements or leaked information about the ongoing cases to any press.

They are just spinning it around to say that they are the ones deciding ... yada yada yada.

So - Oprah is shelved and People interview is shelved but both were interviews were allegedly conducted.

Is it the attorneys or the judge putting the brakes on them? I would hope it would be the judge. I would hope. If it was the attorneys they probably couldn't buy enough putty to fill in the holes in Ox's story in either interview. If it was the judge the attorneys don't want us to believe that the court looks on Ox as anything but a victim. What if none of these interviews even happened or were ever going to happen and this is all just spin from Ox's camp? People were hired to go to DH's house and look like Oprah crew? Funny how DH was available and lurking in his bushes.
