Donald Sterling's Now Infamous Mistress, V. Stiviano, Caught on Tape Making Racist Comments of Her Own

By Julissa Catalan

V. Stiviano, the woman who secretly recorded Donald Sterling making racist remarks, is now coming under fire for making racist remarks of her own.

In a newly surfaced video recording from three years ago, Stiviano is seen criticizing and stereotyping Blacks.

More shocking is that Stiviano was aware that she was being recorded. In fact, she speaks directly into the camera.

According to TMZ Sports, which first released the video over the weekend, the footage was recorded as an audition for a reality show about “gold diggers” back in 2011.

Among the multiple racist comments in the video, Stiviano says:

“I don’t understand Black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it.”

“[Black people] just act crazy. … They’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I’m gonna call them spinners.'”

The person recording her is heard giggling in the background.

USA Today attempted to reach Stiviano for comment, but she directed them to her attorney, only saying, “No direct comment. Have a beautiful day.”

Stiviano, who is part Black and part Mexican, seemed to condemn Sterling’s racist remarks in their recorded argument, noting that she herself is Black as are the majority of the players on his team.

In the almost 10-minute long recorded conversation with Sterling, Stiviano is heard saying, “I cannot be racist in my heart,” and, “Does it matter if [the people she associates with] are white or blue or yellow” and “You’re asking me to remove something that’s part of me and in my blood stream.”

While Stiviano appeared poised and stuck to her principlesin a recent interview with Barbara Walters, this leaked footage definitely further discredits her reputation.
