V. Stiviano appeared on 20/20 to discuss Donald Sterling's racist comments with Barbara Walters. The assistant defended Sterling and even went as far as to say he's like a father figure to her. It's odd given the common perception of their situation. It's sad, too; Stiviano defended the fallen owner on national television, but Sterling didn't do the same.

Sterling disrespected Stiviano in his first public comments since his fall began. "I wish I had just paid her off," he told DuJour Magazine. It's the only existing quote from the magazine, and of course, it'd yet another unflattering one.
