6:52 PM PDT.  Donald Sterling talked to Walters and Cooper at length and decided NOT to go on camera, telling them he "wasn't prepared" ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

V. Stiviano did sit for a LONG interview with Walters, telling Babs she does NOT believe Sterling is a racist and saying the 15 minutes of audio were "taken out of context."  She also said there was a 3rd person in the room when she recorded Sterling and he KNEW he was being recorded.

We're told poor Anderson walked away with zilch.

V was silent and back in visor mode (above) after talking to Babs -- but yes, she did take it off for the interview.

Babs flew into LAX Friday afternoon ... and played it coy when paps asked if she was here to interview Sterling.



Stiviano left home today decked out in all white ... much dressier than we've seen her all week, but still in the damn visor.

Ah, the black visor in daylight. Someone should try the reflection in mirror test or a splash of holy water, as a cross would be too obvious.

Barbara Walters is a crackhead lady who needs to retire and pull her head out of her ass!! She was relevant 20 years ago and has turned into a pointless toadstool!!!

Maybe she's not such a bad person after all. Wearing that visor so we don't have to view her face is a public service.
