What the F*ck – The Donald Sterling Saga Continues

images

Didn’t I mention on my last What the F*uck  post, that this hot mess was not over… and boy I was right…

Here are a few things that we currently know.

  • V Stivano’s interview was a hot ass mess…
  • No law firm will touch Sterling, labeling him as “toxic”
  • He makes ugly faces
  • Clearly he doesn’t know how to shut the hell up..
  • If he wasn’t having se with Stiviano, he was clearly trying to

DONALD STERLING, OWNER, LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS:  I’m not a racist. I made a terrible, terrible mistake.  And I’m here with you today to apologize and to ask for forgiveness for all the people that I have hurt.  And I have hurt so many people, so many innocent people. And I have hurt myself.  You know, I spoke to a girl that I was fond of.  And I don’t know why I can never — when I listen to that tape, I don’t even know how I could say words like that. I’m not a racist.  I love people.  I always have.  But those words came out of my mouth, I guess.  And I’m so sorry.  And I’m so apologetic.

COOPER:  What are you sorry about?

STERLING:  Well, I’m sorry that so many people are hurt. My little grandchild goes to a Catholic nursery.  And they were passing around candy to everybody.  When they got to her, they said, “We don’t give candy to racists,” 7 to 9. So it hurts me. wow, little kids are brutal

I hurt my ex-wife. Wait, hold up, wait a minute… y’all still married! She is a beautiful person.  She goes to the hospital, and she’s a volunteer at Cedars-Sinai.  When I went to law school, she worked at the children’s hospital.  She’s a giver.  She works.  At this stage in her life, she still works.  She didn’t need this.  Her whole life blew up. Let’s be honest, she probably didn’t deserve this, you know what else she didn’t deserve, you spending money on your jump off, and trying to sleep with younger women.

COOPER:  Are you talking about Shelly?

STERLING:  Shelly, yes. I never dreamt that this could happen.  It’s a terrible, terrible nightmare. Neither did Paula Deen…

COOPER:  Do you know when it was recorded?  Were you together in a room with V. Stiviano?

STERLING:  Yes.  Well, I remember some of the dialogue in a living room.  I don’t know when.

COOPER:  So, it was just you and her in the room?

STERLING:  And just the two of us, yes.

COOPER:  You — so you didn’t know she was recording or there was a recording device?

STERLING:  No, I didn’t know she was recording.  And she was talking so strange, all of the sudden about politics.  But I want to explain a couple things that I said.  One of the things that I said was, don’t bring blacks to my game.  Well, there’s 25 percent of my whole game are black people.  And I love them.  She would always use the word black.  “That’s a black girl.  That’s a black guy.  This is black.  That is black.” So, when she said to me, “I’m going to bring four gorgeous black guys to the game,” players she was referring to, either football or basketball, I was a little jealous, maybe.  And I – Okay….

COOPER:  When did she say that?

STERLING:  Just — just before.  And I said to her, don’t bring them to the game, because of my jealousy.  *side eye* I mean, in any event, she never brought anybody to the game.  It was like she was baiting me just to say things. So if you were so jealous, why didn’t you just say.. Don’t bring any men to the game…and if she baited you, you should have had enough sense to realize what was happening and acted accordingly….. you’re stupid

COOPER:  So, you’re saying she, before the recording that we heard, she had said she was going to bring four black players, and she specifically said black players?

STERLING:  Yes.

COOPER:  And you’re saying that’s what this conversation sparked from, stemmed from?

STERLING:  Yes.  And so I used her words.  I mean, I really have to apologize to all the people that have been hurt.  For them to hear that I — that I’m a possible racist is so painful to me, because I’m not a racist, and I have never been a racist.  It’s not me. Here’s the thing, I love how they blame each other, but really when you sit down and think about it neither or you were in the right…. you’re both at fault.

COOPER:  Do you know how the tape got released?

STERLING:  No.

COOPER:  Do you think she did it?

STERLING:  It’s — I don’t know. I mean, I — an 80-year-old man is kind of foolish.  And I’m kind of foolish.  I thought she liked me and really cared for me.  I guess being 50 years, 51 years over — older than her, I was deluding myself. That is probably the most honest thing you have said thus far, she knew you had money and she got it… you were stupid to think that this was a two-sided relationship and she burned your ass…

COOPER:  Were you in a relationship with her, an intimate relationship?

STERLING:  Well, I don’t know what you mean by intimate. You know exactly what’s he’s asking, my dang cat knows what he’s asking… Did you have sexual relations with this woman? Did you intend to have sexual relations with this woman?

COOPER:  She says you weren’t.  She told Barbara Walters that you were not.

STERLING:  Well – She lied, and WE ALL KNOW IT! How many bosses you know buying their assistants condos and cars… come on man

COOPER:  That she is your protector, she’s your right hand.

STERLING:  I don’t think a gentleman should discuss his — any of the personal items that go on with a woman.  And I don’t want to answer that particular question. (I’m confused is he answering the question… cause I have clue what’s he saying..

COOPER:  Do you trust her?  Do you trust her now?

STERLING:  No, I don’t trust her. No Shit!!! And I just wish I could ask her why and if she was just setting me up.  I think that people say she was taping me for two years.  So, maybe I was just fooling myself thinking for two years that she cared for me.  She certainly acted like it Money, fame any of these ring a bell??

COOPER:  Her lawyer had made a statement that she was your archivist.

STERLING:  What does that mean?

COOPER:  That —

STERLING:  I mean, too young for archives.

COOPER:  You don’t want to have your story written just yet?

STERLING:  No.  Wait, so know V. is creating yet another job? I want to see the receipts!! I need a W9, some tax forms, a contract… something … but like she said she was getting paid under the table so those things don’t exists. and we all know you can’t put your whore on the

COOPER:  Well, Elgin Baylor made a claim that you had a plantation mentality.

STERLING:  Well —

COOPER:  And then, now, in this thing, you’re saying you feed these guys who —

STERLING:  I think you have more of a plantation mentality than I do. You know what?  And I think you’re more of a racist than I am. This is the point of the interview, when I grabbed my popcorn bowl and leaned ion real close to the television screen.. I was waiting for Anderson Cooper to give him the business… once again Sterling is deflecting, it’s like watching a child being interviewed

COOPER:  How so?

COOPER:  Well, Donald Sterling says that he has tons of support.  He says the players still love him, and it’s just the media that wants him out of the NBA. Sterling has lost his damn mind, if he had a ton of support, he the players loved him, if his team loved him. his administrative staff wouldn’t be jumping ship, his players wouldn’t have done that protest after the tape was released, if he has so much support and loved why in the hell was he sanctioned by the NBA…. if you had so much damn support he wouldn’t be doing this damn interview, this man is so damn delusional it’s almost cute…. almost. What the F*uck?! is wrong with this man?

Here comes the best part… this is the part of the interview when the ENTIRE interview imploded in his face. Just like his paramour, this man doesn’t know when to shut up.

STERLING:  What has he done?  Can you tell me?  Big Magic Johnson, what has he done? I sure can, and a lot of people he employs and the charities that he endorses could tell yo ignorant ass too.. Let me intorduce you to these causes… that Mr. Johnson supports..

COOPER:  Well, he has — he’s a businessperson.  He —

STERLING:  He’s got AIDS.  Did he do any business?  I would like — did he help anybody in South L.A.? I wish you could see my face.. What The F*ck does his HIV status have to do with anything… Yes this man has businesses..and when was the last time Sterling took a ride down in South L.A. and talked to people, Johnson has done more than you… man… take several seats…

COOPER:  Did you say to somebody that you should have paid V. Stiviano off?

D. STERLING:  No.

COOPER:  Did she ask you for money?  Do you believe she was trying to extort money from you in any way?

D. STERLING:  You know, forgive me for saying this, but she — she is a good person.  She is a beautiful person. There’s 15 of her, 15 children, 15 Hispanic kids, sisters and brothers, and she supports them all.  Perhaps she’s made some mistakes.  I thought she cared for me.  I was stupid. How could a girl care for a man 51 years older?  She didn’t, or she wouldn’t have released those tapes.  But she’s not a bad person.  She has to survive.  She — she’s a street person.  But, inside, she’s a good person.  I’m dead

COOPER:  You gave her multiple cars, an apartment.  You were very generous to her.

D. STERLING:  I was generous.  I wouldn’t cover that with you.  But some women who are — she was so nice and so sweet for the two years.  I just — I just couldn’t believe she was so sweet and so nice.  And she never really asked for — she tried to help her family, the 15 people.  What a job.  But… I almost feel sympathetic…

COOPER:  It sounds like you’re still sympathetic toward her.

D. STERLING:  I just would like to know why she did it.  It’s like a woman stabbing you in the chest or shooting you. And, sometimes, women say, “I love — I love him,” and they kill him.  Well that’s what happens when you try to se up a “street person”…..

Although I think he was set up, I am a firm believer that what one does in the dark comes out in the light, people say and do a lot of things when they are in the comfort of their home or with their friends, do we sometimes say things that we shouldn’t … of course we do… but do we go on racial tirades…. nope! I don’t buy that he’s not a racist… racisms comes in a lot of forms… does he have a plantation mentality… of hell yes. Do I feel sorry for him… NOPE!  Do I feel bad that his grandchildren are feeling the brunt of his ignorance.. yes, I do feel bad about that.

Then the “ex-wife” Shelley Sterling has to add her two cent.

SHELLY STERLING, WIFE OF DONALD STERLING:  It was horrible when I heard it.  I mean, it was just degrading. And it made me sick to hear it.  But, as far as a racist, I don’t really think he’s a racist.

BARBARA WALTERS, ABC NEWS:  Have you discussed these remarks at all with your husband?

S. STERLING:  He saw the tape, and he said: “I don’t remember saying that.  I don’t remember ever saying those things.” When I was 10 years old and I broke a water glass my mom came to confront me about it and I said the same thing… please… that’s the first thing that people say when they are trying to get out of something

WALTERS:  What did you think then?

S. STERLING:  That’s when I thought he has dementia.  drops the microphone and leaves the room… girl you dumb

And since what Mr. Johnson have to say doesn’t belong in this post I will say that he has continued to conduct himself in a graceful manner. I’m confused though Sterling mentioned that he and Johnson for friends and associates but in another breathe he blasts him… and I understand that friends have issues, but why would you specifically mention him an an interview designed allow you to clear the air make you look better in the media… So  you go Magic Johnson and none for Donald Sterling

 

Let’s hope dear readers that this is the very end of the saga… it’s time to move on to something else; the damage is done and is irreparable. Do I think that Ms. Sterling should try to get ownership of the Clippers, nope. I think that the entire family should simple cut their loses and move on to something else….

Until Next Time…..

What I Ate Wednesday : Food Hangover

You ever have a food hangover? I tend to get them around the holidays, or occasion when a lot of food is present… so much food is presented to me that I don’t want to eat anything!! Nothing at all…nothing seems appetizing or appealing… and I enjoy nothing! Apparently that’s what’s happening to me this week…

WIAW

So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…

WIAW Breakfast

So for breakfast I didn’t have anything special… just waffles and honey. For some reason honey has replaced my need for syrup, I refused to buy/eat it now… But since I wasn’t filling well and I needed to take my meds I wasn’t in the mood for something heavy..DSC02763

Funny thing is my mother asked me what I had for dinner, and I told her “multigrain waffles with honey” and the look on her face was completely horrifying… so funny… she doesn’t know what’s she’s missing.

WIAW LunchOnce again… nothing special…. a little yogurt and a little granola and bam!! Lunch

DSC02764

WIAW Dinner

And finally a dinner that I didn’t cook.. just put on a plate… and to continue with the theme, not that special… but I did actually enjoy the salad…. chicken… not so much…I think one of the reason’s why I didn’t enjoy the chicken was because I spent more time using my paper towel to soak up the grease off the chicken than I did eating it…

DSC02767DSC02768

 

But any who….  here is my caloric intake for today….

wiaw

Also I should point out that I didn’t really consume that many calories, the chicken that I ate was a thigh and not a breast, I changed my mind at the last minute so  a few less calories…

And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday; oh and before I forget if you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal . What did you eat today? Do you have any recipes that you’d like to pass along, leave them in the comments..

Until Next Time…

Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 71

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Generally I try to get my NPLClub posts on Tuesdays… I’ve been feeling under the weather… so you’re gonna get a ton of posts today (I’ll be posting in between naps…)

Before we go into this weeks pic, let me lament about last week’s pick. Great color, so great IDSC02771 did my toes in the color and got so many complements on the color and my manicure as a whole, but holy cow… it leaves a mess behind when 20140513_151958you remove it. My nails were so yellow that my doctor asked me if my liver was okay, he thought that maybe I was showing signs of jaundice. So just beware if you plan on using this polish, your nails are defiantly gonna need some TLC afterwards. (this was taken after they were buffed and soaked and you can still see a bit of yellowing)

I was looking to try something new, lately I have been really unhappy with the polishes that Julep has come out with, so on a whim I signed up for Color Me Monthly . Color Me Monthly is a monthly nail polish subscription that sends out an affordable bottle of non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free polish in earth-friendly packaging. The subscription costs $7.00/month. Once again I got another great spring color called Sirens, and before I even knew the name my first thoughts were, “how this reminds me of the sea, and mermaids, fish scales and all that jazz”… hell I was close enough.

DSC02752Sirens is a medium milky sea foam green with a shimmering microglitter. Very pretty and totally on trend for the season. As you can tell from the picture this is the first coat, so this particular polish requires at least two coats to get the achieved look. I was really happy to see that there was a good amount of micorglitter in the first coat. By the time I got to my second coat the polish was completely opaque.

You can clearly see the microglitters in the bottle and the polish looks exactly the same on theDSC02753 nail, there is no color or shade variation at all.. Even without the use of flash (and if you can look closely you can see the microglitters on my nail..

I loved this polish so much I matched my entire outfit to it… as you can see my bracelet and 20140511_115146rope belt match my manicure! And I wasn’t the only one who liked this polish Tsuki REALLY liked it… I sat the polish on the bed and see DSC02744assumed it was a toy and proceeded to carry it off to her bed… I was able to snap a picture before she bolted. Maybe this week I will do a little nail art with this polish, I think last month’s CMM pick would be a great complement to this

The application of the polish was smooth and I had no issues at all with the brush. Overall I was really impressed with this weeks pick and look forward to future CCM mailings. Now I know that I said the same thing about my previous CMM pick, but I have that I love the fact that this is a small operation which means there is extra care to make sure that each polish is perfect. And you know that I will find anything to pick apart  on my post, but this one seems to have done it again, I am VERY impressed. So this polish get’s a 10 out of 10! And if you’re looking for a good quality polish in a “surprise” color every month I would highly suggest signing up for this service.

Until Next Time…
