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.

How the hell did that slut get into this!?! I give up. Sell your body to some rich old man and Barbara Walters interviews you on national television. The end of the world is near!

Here's the deal. I wanna hate child molesters...that's my prerogative. I wanna hate those that follow the Hitler/Nazi way of thinking, that's also my prerogative...as a free-thinking American. I have no problem with black people...on the flip side...me and n i g g e r s don't get along.
.
I don't have dog in this...but I do believe that anyone in America should be able to like and dislike whomever they want. Being fined and having your possessions taken away because you voiced your beliefs smacks of Nazism.
.
We're all racists, to some extent. If you're white...tell me, if you had a daughter would you want her dating Flavor Flav? Same with black people...you want your black, stud of a boy dating Taylor Swift?
.
Tribes...we all belong to one!!
