    Sterling: Magic 'should be ashamed of himself'


    (CNN) -- Why did Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling take so long to say he's sorry for the racist remarks that got him banned from the NBA?
    Magic Johnson, he claims, told him to stay quiet.


    "Wait, be patient, I'll help you, we'll work it out," Sterling said the NBA legend told him.


    In an exclusive interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Sterling spoke publicly for the first time since a controversial audio recording of him sparked a firestorm and put his ownership of the Clippers in jeopardy.


    He repeatedly apologized and denied accusations that he's racist, claiming he'd been "baited" into making what he called "terrible" remarks. But while he defended himself for much of the interview, he went on the offensive when Johnson's name came up.


    Sterling: I'm so sorry, I'm so apologetic Sterling: 'I'm asking for forgiveness' Sterling: 'I'm asking for forgiveness' Ex-NBAer: 'Baited' comment is a joke Sterling's possible excuse: I wanted sex
    Sterling, 80, slammed the former Los Angeles Lakers player's character and his battle with HIV, saying Johnson hasn't done anything to help others.


    "What kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV? Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about?" Sterling asked. "I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background. But what does he do for the black people? He doesn't do anything."


    Johnson has been a central figure in the controversy since the recording of Sterling speaking with friend V. Stiviano surfaced last month on TMZ.


    In the recording, which drew widespread condemnation from fans, players and the league, Sterling chastises Stiviano for posting pictures online of her posing with African-Americans, including Johnson. He tells her not to bring Johnson to Clippers games.


    "Admire him, bring him here, feed him, f**k him, but don't put (Magic) on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me," he said.


    As criticism over the recording spread, Johnson was among the first to say that Sterling should be forced to sell the team.


    Now, as Sterling faces a lifetime ban from the National Basketball Association, a $2.5 million fine for the remarks and the possibility that fellow NBA owners could force him to sell the team he's owned for more than 30 years, he claims Johnson is angling for control of the Clippers.


    Sterling said that he waited so long to apologize about the recording because Johnson, who led the Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA championships, called him and told him to remain silent.


    "I know the girl, don't do anything. I'll help you," Sterling says Johnson told him.


    "I think he wanted me to just do nothing so he could buy the team," Sterling said.


    Johnson hasn't indicated whether he would pursue a Clippers ownership position.


    Sterling: Some African-Americans 'don't want to help anybody'


    In comments that drew immediate backlash across social media, Sterling said Johnson hasn't done anything.


    "What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?" Sterling said.


    Sterling, who is Jewish, said Jewish people spend great amounts of money helping other Jews who are poor while rich black people turn their backs to people in need.


    "That's one problem I have. Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people, and some of the African-Americans -- maybe I'll get in trouble again -- they don't want to help anybody," he said.


    Cooper asked, "So are you saying that African-Americans don't contribute to African-American communities as much as Jewish people --"



    Sterling -- measured for much of the interview -- cut Cooper off and snapped back.


    "There's no African-American --," he said, raising his voice. "Never mind, I don't know, I'm sorry. You know, they all want to play golf with me. Everybody wants to be with me. I'm easy. I'm fun."


    Johnson responds


    In a series of Twitter posts after the interview aired, Johnson fired back, but he didn't respond to the specific allegations.


    "I'd rather be talking about these great NBA Playoffs than Donald Sterling's interview," he said.


    "After this week, no more Sterling talk. Just the NBA Playoffs," he said in another post.


    Johnson's 1991 revelation that he was HIV-positive shocked the sports world. The athlete has drawn accolades for his openness about the illness and his push to help fight it. He's the founder of the Magic Johnson Foundation, which has raised millions for HIV/AIDS awareness.


    It also provides funds for testing and treatment as well as scholarships and mentoring for minority students.


    As chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises, Johnson has invested extensively, with the company describing its mission on its website as being "a catalyst for and fostering community/economic empowerment" in "ethnically diverse urban communities."


    NBA Commissioner: Sterling's comments on Johnson 'malicious'


    Even as Sterling repeatedly said he is sorry, many appeared unconvinced after the interview, pointing particularly to his comments about Johnson.


    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he'd read a transcript of the interview.


    "While Magic Johnson doesn't need me to, I feel compelled on behalf of the NBA family to apologize to him that he continues to be dragged into this situation and be degraded by such a malicious and personal attack," Silver said in a statement. "The NBA Board of Governors is continuing with its process to remove Mr. Sterling as expeditiously as possible."


    In a conference call, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said of Sterling's comments, "That doesn't sound like much of an apology to me."


    "This attack on Magic is crazy," filmmaker Spike Lee told Cooper after the interview. "He's messing with the wrong brother. Magic is loved by everybody around the world. And the talk about some other stuff that has nothing to do with nothing is ridiculous."


    And Sterling's comments about Johnson surprised several NBA players who spoke with CNN's Rachel Nichols on Monday.


    "The biggest shock waves from players that I talked to today, they said, 'Wait a minute, he insulted Magic Johnson again? He did that again?' They can't believe that," Nichols said. "As far as they are concerned, that is a final straw."


    The timing of Sterling's apology drew criticism from the Clippers' interim CEO.


    "I would observe, as most Americans I think would observe, that he's a little late, for sure," said Dick Parsons, a former chairman of Citigroup and Time Warner who was tapped by the NBA to be the team's interim CEO last week. "But beyond that, I'm here to help turn one of the burners off under the pot, not to turn it up higher. So I think I'll keep my personal views personal."


    Still, Sterling said he thinks his players, whom he cannot contact anymore because he is banned from team functions and operations, love him.


    "Absolutely! They know I'm not a racist -- and I'm not a racist," he said.


    Sterling's relationship with Stiviano


    Sterling blamed Stiviano for "baiting" him into saying the racist remarks on the recordings -- comments he said he had no idea were being recorded. But he said he is not sure why she did it, because she didn't blackmail him. In fact, he believes she is a "good person."


    When asked if he had an intimate relationship with Stiviano, 31 and nearly 50 years younger than Sterling, he declined to answer.


    "I don't think a gentleman should discuss any of the personal items that go on with a woman," he said.


    Stiviano told ABC that she was a friend and confidant to Sterling but they didn't have a sexual relationship.


    Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly, believes they did and is suing Stiviano to get back more than $2 million in gifts her husband gave his friend.


    Donald Sterling said Stiviano made him jealous by saying she was going to bring four handsome black football players to a Clippers game with her, prompting the now-infamous racist rant.


    "I was a little jealous," he said, adding that he was referring to the players when he said, "Don't bring them to the game."


    Awaiting the NBA's next move


    Sterling, a lawyer and billionaire real estate investor, wouldn't tell CNN if he will sue the NBA if his fellow owners vote to force him to sell the team.


    Even though Silver has said he wants the other teams to vote the Clippers owner out, Sterling said he doesn't think the other 29 owners would do it.


    The league's finance committee is to meet this week to take another step toward the forced sale.


    If the case proceeds to a full vote, 75% of the owners would have to approve it.


    However, an attorney for Shelly Sterling told CNN Friday that she wants to keep her 50% stake in the team.


    "She wants to remain a passive owner," said attorney Pierce O'Donnell. "She's not going to want to manage the team. She's going to want a very skilled, professional, well-heeled new owner to come in and replace Donald," O'Donnell said. "She only wants to own the team in her lifetime. She's 79 years old. At this point, she's earned it. She's been an owner for 33 years, and she's an avid fan."


    In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, Shelly Sterling said she was prepared to fight any attempt by the NBA to take away her stake in the team.


    "I will fight that decision," she told ABC's Barbara Walters. "To be honest with you, I'm wondering if a wife of one of the owners, and there's 30 owners, did something like that, said those racial slurs, would they oust the husband? Or would they leave the husband in?"


    NBA spokesman Mark Bass said in a statement after the ABC interview aired that what happens if the owners vote for a forced sale is already spelled out in the NBA Constitution.


    "Under the NBA Constitution, if a controlling owner's interest is terminated by a 3/4 vote, all other team owners' interests are automatically terminated as well. It doesn't matter whether the owners are related as is the case here," he said. "These are the rules to which all NBA owners agreed to as a condition of owning their team."


    Donald Sterling told CNN's Cooper that since he hasn't been ordered to sell, it wasn't worth discussing.


    "We aren't there yet so why should I address that issue? I don't want to fight with my partners," he said. "We all do what we have to do. I love them and I respect them. Whatever their decision is with regard to my terrible words, then I have to do it, I think."

    Rita Ora Niptastic Stripping To Bra and Panties On Stage [PICS]







    I must admit I don't often get to the G-A-Y nightclub in London, though the performers there do love to put on a good show-off show, the ladies typically half dressed or less, including Rita Ora who did a striptease down to her cotton undies over the weekend. The result was a strong showing of Rita's recently heavily worked out body. Hey, you don't just decide to start stripping on stage without some confidence in your workout. I mean, drunken NYE parties aside.
    It's really no surprise that Miley preceded Rita Ora at the very same venue. The bar on exhibitionism has been raised severely in the past couple of years, and thankfully so. It's about time we focused less on the music and more on the visually blessed notes of the Calvin only covered Rita Ora. Music is headed in the right direction.

    Mariah Carey Gets Busty in Black Lingerie for Terry Richardson








    Whatever the rumors and accusations of late swirling around Terry Richardson, it hasn't stopped celebrity hotties from heading back to his studio for some sextastic photoshoots of the simple, but memorable kind.

    Take for instance Mariah Carey, and, oh, how I'd like to take her and her big motherly mammaries of delight. Mariah got into some revealing ingerie for a swell reveal of her award winning boobtasitc. She seems rather comfortable in these photos. I guess when you're a veteran hottie like Mariah with the teats of Olympus it's easier to feel confident in any situation. I once again applaud Mariah's bravery, with a standing ovation and a golf clap for her curves. Just still a total yowzer. Enjoy.

    Scarface's Miami Mansion For Sale At $35M [PICS and VIDEO]







    Say hello to my little house.
    The Scarface home went on the market last week at the low, low price of $35 mil, according to theWall Street Journal and broker Village Properties. It’s 10,000 square feet. It contains four bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a bitchin’ pool, and, surprisingly!, views of the Pacific Ocean. (Yes, this house is not located in Miami but Montecito, California, because the movies lie to you.) There is also a Byzantine-style alcove and at least one ceiling painted with 24-carat gold leaf.
    Calling this a “home” kind of does a disservice to the word “home,” considering the Mediterranean Revival-style estate also includes roughly 10 acres of gardens, fountains, and woods. And, if you have $35 million to cough up, you will not be buying anything stained with the blood of Sosa sons of bitches. The Russian businessman who owns the crib recently spent millions renovating it.
    More drool-worthy photos here.

    Doc Rivers Says Donald Sterling Interview Wasn't Much of an Apology






    Doc Rivers is blocking out most of the Donald Sterling-related news in an effort to focus on preparing his team during the NBA playoffs, and he admits he didn’t even watch Sterling’s interview with Anderson Cooper Monday night. But Doc heard enough about it to know that Sterling’s apology was not much of one.
    Rivers must have specifically heard that Sterling bashed Magic Johnson during the interview, because the Clippers coach took exception to that portion of it.
    “Obviously I know who Magic is,” Rivers said via ESPN Los Angeles. “I’ll stand by Magic every day of the year because I’ve known him for a long time. Having said that, I don’t know what’s going on out there. I tried not to get involved in that part of it right now. Whatever it is, that doesn’t sound like much of an apology to me.”
    Rivers also added that he was “glad” Sterling finally apologized. He would have liked to see Sterling apologize sooner, but he’ll still take it.
    It’s funny that Rivers admits he didn’t even watch the interview but his takeaway is that it wasn’t much of an apology. That goes to show you how the media influences perception. But it’s not like that’s an inaccurate view; Sterling could not have done a worse job of asking for forgiveness. He came across as an insincere phony.

    Alrighty, it's time to ask for MONEY honey! I hate doing it as much as you hate seeing it.

    Before I get started, if you don't want to donate anything, can't donate anything, or just won't donate anything, that is FINE. I'm certainly not going to slam someone who doesn't donate money! It's perfectly okay not to! Okay cool?

    We owe @hugo months worth of back hosting fees. I also pay to host all the audio that's put on the site, and that is more than you'd probably think. I want to get some custom code so we can do more here and I also want to get some more modern day looking graphics here. It's time to give this thing a real, true face lift. (With more bells and whistles.)

    We probably need a few hundred dollars. As always, I will share with you exactly where the money goes along our little trail of purchases. The first part will go directly yo Hugo. Luckily this isn't something we have to do all the time, but about twice a year we have to. We're also lucky that Hugo isn't too pissy about us not paying the bill. lol - although he's been a little grumpy about it lately, and before he shuts her down, we probably need to pony up.

    CLICK HERE TO DONATE ANY AMOUNT. (PAYPAL)

    Thanks PEEPS!
