Oksana Grigorieva

Defies Judge with Larry King

11/14/2010 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has defied the judge in her custody war with Mel Gibson by taping an interview with Larry King Saturday night, TMZ has learned ... and it's Oksana's opening salvo in "speaking out on behalf of battered women."

Oksana did the interview (which was supposed to only last a half-hour but ended up an hour) along with one of her lawyers, Marty Garbus -- this despite Judge Scott Gordon telling Oksana that if she did media, she might pay when it comes to awarding custody ... this according to Oksana's team.

Sources connected with Oksana tell TMZ she did the interview because "she feels she's been silent too long and feels bad for other battered women if she stays silent." Sources tell TMZ Oksana is now working with a group called Peace Over Violence -- an L.A.-based battered women's group -- and she's planning a number of news conferences in the near future.

We're told Larry King played portions of a number of the tapes Oksana secretly recorded, in which Mel goes crazy. King asks for her reaction to the various tapes.

And we're told Oksana repeats over and over that she believes Mel is a great father, but he needs therapy to deal with his issues so he can safely be around Lucia.

Oksana is also working with a lobbying group in Sacramento -- California Partnership to End Domestic Violence -- on battered women legislation.

As long as Oksana keeps Horowitz on staff, she can douse her daughter with ligher fluid and strike the match on Larry's show. She's riding the gravy train and Horo is the conductor.

Her current tactics have rewarded her with $30k per month for the next 18 years [when you include all living expenses thrown in from last week's ruling] she has no motivation to do anything she doesn't want to. Why should she change now?

and she's planning a number of news conferences in the near future.

Just like Gloria Allred.

Judge Gordon, do your job and look out for the welfare of Lucia, it is time to consider giving full custody to Mel Gibson, and to reconsider your previous ruling on the 20k child support you awarded Oksana Grigorieva.

I'm gob smacked, flabbergasted, stunned, almost into silence, but not quite.

Is there anyone left who is following this drama who still believes in Oxy's cause? If so, then you need a brain transplant, too.

This just reeks of the worst kind of pandering to certain groups. I know V, Gene, and others will have plenty to say about this.

As for Larry King, why can't we do the same with the Oprah thing? Send emails-make calls, etc.? And that damn Judge Gordon had better stick to his guns this time.

The only remedy for the overwhelm and onslaught of lies is speaking the Truth. Truth is the mortal enemy of lies.
Remember, truth is more than facts.
It is obvious that having the facts lined up and fighting only with them, haven't worked in this case. She still does what she wants. She is also ceasing the time. In the end she will get hers, but in the meantime there is a lot of destruction. So truth is the only answer.
Truth requires more than just the facts. It needs the heart investment from the speaker. Speak the truth openly with conviction and courage, with the facts as your back up.
Only then can these relentless charlatans (Oksana&Lawyers) be at least stifled, if not silenced and hopefully prosecuted.
Also, try to address the hate (the passion) towards the behavior, rather than the person(s). Otherwise it might backfire, and give them ammunition for diversions and other dirty stuff, and yet again steer away from the facts.
As it is said: 'Do the right thing.' But, be blameless!
It is exactly the opposite of their tactic, and it is the only thing that will work.

Now she cons the BV Groups, the gold-digger. Been reading the message boards again, seen where she went wrong in her manipulations, schemes and shake-downs. Honey, you have to live and know it, to own it. Are those women going to be thinking, uh uh, about when you have to the center of attention to them and they know they are being used for publicity for PR.
Oksana is covering her ass.

#1: Are you serious? The man is about 120 years old. His spermies dried up back in the 30s.

@ Babushka:

I'm still learning. Thanks for your patience. Remember when Mel asked that reporter if he had a dog in the fight?

The LK episode airing Nov. 2nd is strategic with her court appearance the same day.

I think Horowitz let it go to his head when the judge complimented him on his tenacity after submitting a brief. Now her team thinks they can push the limits. When that interview airs (if it airs), she's going to have big problems.

Also, if she's going on talk shows, why not return to Oprah, since they already had filmed her. Maybe they tried and Oprah didn't want any part of her anymore?

Ya know, some women actually NEED to be battered...

Not in the least but you stated it so eloquently I thought there might be a slim chance they would listen...NOT....this is literally the worst thing for her...especially since the judge reminded her that custody might be affected if she does this...I quess her need to help other DV victims out weighs her child ....
