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.

Speaking of Bodyguards....what happened to the story of Tater Head at The Ivy with the Hiltons??? It disappeared.

Yes, the Hilton's probably demanded it away, but I happened to copy it before it defintely disappeared:

OKSANA'S BODYGUARD GETS CLOSE WITH PARIS HILTON

10/5/2010 2:10 PM PDT by TMZ Staff

Oksana Grigorieva's bodyguard -- the dude who was just slapped with a restraining order prohibiting him from getting close to Lucia -- just showed up at The Ivy restaurant in L.A., seemingly escorting Paris and Kathy Hilton to their car.


Kristian Otto Herzog -- a convicted felon who has impersonated a cop with a loaded gun -- has known the Hiltons for a long time ... or so he says.

Herzog claims he has ties with the owner of The Ivy -- he's definitely hung out there. This AM, we posted a story showing Jack Nicholson and Herzog leaving The Ivy.

Sources tell us Herzog told Oksana he was friends with Nicholson and Jack was footing the bill for her protection. But Jack's people told us Jack never even met Herzog and his story was BS.

chunx...I totally agree with you and you took the words right out of my mouth. This judge has been letting OG get away with everything, without punisment. She's been in contemp of court orders, snubs here nose and just keeps pluging along without any consequences. I don't get it. Why is the judge screwing Mel over?????

What an opportunity lost to put her foot in her mouth. I'd love to hear from her own mouth (not via imdb) the who's who and the what's what of her past. It'll be fun to have people mentioned make public denials.

It's also an opportunity lost to make her music available to a greater audience - Oprah's that is. Poor audience, missing out on a treat and what's more everyone gets to take a copy of Oksana's cd and a spare copy to give away to an enemy er.. loved one. Oksana will even autograph the first cd for a fee and the second one for an extra cost.

Strikes me as really odd that they would start doing that now. I'd like to know the rest of the story now. Harvey what's up with pulling the article on Paris and Kathy Hilton with Mr. Potatohead????

All this is just getting plain crazy, er crazier.

Yes, we here in Ca are sick of this. Ca is bankrupt morally and otherwise and this woman keeps sucking the resources (among other things) dry.

There had better be some big development with regards to her investigation soon or there's going to be a revolt. This has gone far enough.

A new judge needs to be assigned to this case.

@little aussie reader, yeah i know what u mean. but i'm beginning to suspect something isn't right here. why is the case continuing to drag on and no one has been charged yet. if the tapes are inadmissible then wouldn't that mean that oksana is guilty of illegally recording mel? but if so, how come she hasn't been charged for that crime yet? why isn't her bodyguard charged for the threats and extortion plan he revealed to the witnesses? why did the judge grant her 20k to pay off her debts when it's only meant to be child support, and she was never his wife.

Not surprised about this. Someone in the legal profession - please tell me why Mel Gibson keeps getting stuck paying this whore's legal bills. He has paid more for her lawyers than his own. What gives? Why does any Judge force him to pay anything? She can keep hiring lawyers from now until doom's day and why not if some other fool is paying for them. Why is this allowed? Mel Gibson is being taken advantage of royally by her and her lawyers.

Hey Judge does it make you mad that personal conversations you have with Oksana she turns around and tells CNN?

I think the real story here is that Oksana has the judge in her pocket, nevermind this TMZ bussiness.

Posted at 4:38 PM on Oct 5, 2010 by Mishie

It's looking that way Mishie and I have to agree with eek, maybe it's time to replace the judge in this case? It's starting to look like he's in someone's pocket isn't it? Why allow her to speak freely about a case that is ongoing? Then ups her child support, and make Mel pay more for her lawyers that she continues to change. It really is ridiculous!!! Horrorwitz is allowed to slam Mel in the media with no recourse although he hasn't been found guilty of anything??? This is sheer craziness from the courts in Ca.

@chunx Agreed, so many questions, so few answers. Something certainly smells rotten. @eek Don't be so hard on yourselves Californians - the whole world is becoming more and more morally bereft. I don't know what can be done....the corrupt seem to be winning.
