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.

You're a nobody. Take that damn visor off your face. You don't see real celebrities walking around with huge visors covering their faces. It's obvious she wants attention. If I saw her on the streets I wouldn't think she was anyone.

He's still paying her to not have those other tapes released. She's still staying in his 1.5 house. And he agreed to sit down with her for an interview. Smfh. Now all of a sudden after releasing the first audio, she claims he's not a racist. Yes, she's still on the payroll. He is senile and she's a "convenient black/latino". Only part black or latino when it's beneficial to her. Enough of these two idiots.

He's stupid if he does any interview without an attorney. Even stupider if he does an interview with Anderson who lives for making white people look like racists whether they are or not. If you going to go after Sterling then there's alot of blacks in the NBA and NFL have said and done as bad or worse. This is all a setup to force sell of team so certain black individuals can buy the team or i should say steal the team from the sterling family.

oh come on. when's the first person of color going to come out and admit openly that they cannot stand white people either, that they don't want them around them either. lots of people not only think this, but actively live this. lots of colored people despise white people and don't want them anywhere near them. why is this whole adult scene so hypocritical? accept his feelings, because you all sure as hell know you feel the exact same way about lots of others as well. it's only because he is white and wealthy, that the whole world basically wants him punished to the fullest degree. if you want to punish this guy for having his own set of social core values, as despised as you might see them, you know for damn sure that you have similar ones and that it shows itself in your life daily. i do not fault him for anything. he is entitled to his personal feelings, no matter how hateful they are.

That attention grabbing 'visor' thing is really irritating me. If you took that thing off, NO ONE would recognize you ... stoopit ho.
