Donald Sterling’s boo V. Stiviano sat down with Barbara Walters for 20/20 last night and shared her thoughts on what should happen to Donald now.
Despite the insensitive, racist comments we’ve all heard in the audio — V. insists Donald is NOT A RACIST.
“I think Mr. Sterling is from a different generation than I am. I think he was brought up to believe these things … segregation, whites and blacks,” Stiviano said. “But through his actions he’s shown that he’s not a racist. He’s shown to be a very generous and kind man.”
Even though she says he’s not a racist, she thinks he a SHOULD apologize for what he said.
“Yes. Absolutely. I think he’s highly more traumatized and hurt by the things that he said himself. I think he can’t even believe or understand sometimes the thing he says, and I think he’s hurt by it. He’s hurting right now.”
She also revealed he’s said similar things in the past.
“There’s been a number of occasions where Mr. Sterling and I had conversations just like this one. This was one of very many. Part of what the world heard was only 15 minutes. There’s a number of other hours that the world doesn’t know.”
