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."

1005_oprah_oksana_EX_TMZ_01

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.

Hi all! I have not had time to read through all the comments yet,
so forgive me if this has already been said: But: I would
not put it past Oprah to still use the portion already taped
of Ox singing and playing piano at her house. She could do that
with out risk of Ox saying something stupid. And I be Oprah
will do just that, she gets the ratings, she gets to promote
Ox, she gets to take down Mel, and Ox doesn't have to say a word.
Bet ya a dollar!

Mike as usual you're talking out of your butt.
Give us a links where Oksana sported bruises and you claimed she was beaten up?

For weeks you can't come up with solid evidence to convict Mel.
You base your argument on edited tapes.You are biased and bigted.

Mike I am domestic violence survivor and there is no way in the world I would believed Oksana was beaten.

Mel ranted, she had a choice to hang up on him but she didn't?
Why is that Mike?
Why for love of god, if her life was in serious danger and her kids yet she stayed and answered all his calls?
Why is that Mike?

------------------------------------------------------

Mel was doing a WEE BIT more than just having a typical argument about household duties with his wife. Just a tad.

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/07/exclusive-audio-out-control-mel-gibson-says-hell-burn-down-house-after-demanding

Even Mel texted to Oksana and said this:

"Oksana, I wasn't safe for you last night"

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/07/exclusive-mel-gibsons-text-oksana-after-alleged-brawl-i-wasnt-safe-you-last-night

Why for love of god, if her life was in serious danger and her kids yet she stayed and answered all his calls?

Bottom line, Oksana needed to GATHER EVIDENCE on Mel in case he (or someone else) came after Oksana and tried to beat her up or kill her. At that point, Oksana really DID have a legitimate fear for her life. When a rich guy like Mel threatens you in a psychotic rage, you SHOULD do what you can do to protect yourself.

Oksana knew that she would need SOLID EVIDENCE like audio recordings in order for the local cops to actually DO something about it. Mel probably has "buddies in high places" (like the D.A.'s office) you know. You'd be very naive if you didn't think there was corruption in L.A.

If Oksana just CLAIMED in a statement to the police that Mel was saying and doing all these things, the cops and the D.A. would probably say "this is a he said, she said case" ... "gotta have more evidence if the D.A. is going to take on Mel and his ridiculously overpaid posse of attorneys".

Without solid evidence in Oksana's hands, Mel could have gone into yet another rage and ended up killing Oksana like O.J. Simpson did to his wife and Ron Goldman. Mel is terrified of public embarrassment you know. That could easily have sent him over the edge.

ONly 1/4 of the nation thinks Oxy is telling the truth. That means 3/4 thinks she's full of sh.it. MIke, you're showing just how ignorant you are....keep it coming cause I'm enjoying the laughs....


@shell,
was there a national poll on Mel and Oksana that I missed?

The "Mel Gibson apologists" have got to be delusional if they think that most Americans are siding with Mel. Most Americans think that Mel completely lost his marbles in the last year.

Well, I did...I until I read up on Oksana and her family, especially her mother's comments. Then I thought...
Public divorce from wife of 26+ years
Oksana pregnant, demanding money
Finding out it was all about money w/Oksana
Possibly not the father
Breaking up with her (before the public knew or maybe not even together as the public thought)
Having the economy affect him just like everyone else
Getting his kids to accept new baby
Ari's revenge
Having a sociopath for daughter's babymama
Worried about his career being destroyed after trying to come back.
Nope, no stress in Mel's life, how would it be in your life? Still don't believe he hit her unless she shook that baby to get him to do something, then it is all bets off. 'Cause I would hit the b!tch for shaking a baby, as anyone should to get her to stop.

JMO but lawyers are a lot cheaper than having the vampire around sucking the life out of someone. What is that kind of sucker fish that attaches to a bigger fish?

If one of the blows hit that baby on the chin, there would have been serious damage. Most DV victims would make damn sure if fighting was escalating, those kids would not have been in the same room, even if she had to lure the abuser away to another room, to keep her children away from it. Oksana doesn't know this because she is a liar.

Posted at 6:26 AM on Oct 6, 2010 by kickaboo

did you hear how this was explained "away" by People rep on the Today show...apparently OG said something to the effect that one of the punches(there were 2) as it continue to follow through after hitting OG, hit Lucia on her chin causing a small cut... is that different than what she said before? if she was holding the baby in front of her, how can the punch follow through after it hit her mouth then hit the baby?

what are those people on Today show doing? MSNBS, Dateline can do a do***entary! i am just "frothing at the mouth" i would like to punch OG to get some sense back into her head, you know like when someone is having a tantrum, just shake and slap her?

Posted at 6:39 AM on Oct 6, 2010 by Who'sThat

i will get off this topic in a min since we know this scammer can give us many different versions and we wouldn't believe her but...

let's look at what she said,,,she said, Mel punched her twice, once on the head and once in the mouth...the baby was 4 mo. old at the time...she would have been holding the baby in a cradle so she would be below the lvl of her head or mouth so even with a follow through, the punch would not connect to the baby,..

if she was holding the baby so that the baby was facing behind her over her shoulder, neither punch would have connected to the baby's chin as she said...

hmmm..how would she be holding the baby if someone was trying to chase her and hit her? neither hold would have connected mel's fist to the baby's chin...

Be funny as hell if Mike was Mike from TMZ, lmao.

I know he's posted while TMZ Mike was on Live, but I bet there's a way to autopost. I noticed during the Live broadcast, Mike's posts never acknowledge what another poster has responded.

Of course, this is sheer specualtion on my part. Still makes me snicker.

Mike Bull!
Mike Bull!

She was not victim, I heard all her words on that tapes, its all rehearsed, like "I felt like walking on the egg shell around you"

did you know Mike all that info was on the websites?

Everything she did, was from the websites informations.

"You are domestic violence victims of your experiencing all these"

Many of what come out her mouth was mirrored of what listed on the websites.

Its was all planned how to trapped Mel, she was not physically abused.
She did it all for money.
