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.

This is all horse manure. If we are to believe visor head told baba wawa she doesn't believe pig silver is racist, why did she sell the tape to TMZ?

He doesn't need their money... They can't pay for a cheap interview. He is a lawyer, he knows when to talk and when not to. They should call his girl, v schiano or whatever her name is.she will make an appearance

Regardless of what he's like she a snake and a pretty ****ty "friend" or lover or even just a ungrateful user who should have let a private and awful conversation stay private. The guy is old and from a ignorant time. He's been vilified like a murderer. It's a bit much people.

I do not condone what sterling said, but, it is Un-American to have your property seized from you because you excercized your freedom of speech. He will win at supreme court. And he should.

The whole thing was BS. People can be racist in private if they chose. And exactly where is the line to qualify as racist??? He never used the N word. He just didn't want his GF posting photos with blacks or hanging all over them at the games. I don't want my kids to date or marry a black. I am not racist, I just don't want that. The world is full of hate and discrimination, I didn't want my kids to have mixed children that are the ones that end up targeted by the hate and discrimination. I am entitled to my beliefs and preferences and that doesn't make me racist. Blacks embrace and celebrate and are proud of their race, why can't i do the same?
