V. Stiviano Crashes Her Car After Tommy Lasorda Curses Her
Friends don't let friends vise and drive, folks. We, of course, can neither confirm nor deny that wearing a visor over her whole face is why V. Stiviano failed to stop before crashing the red Ferrari Donald Sterling bankrolled into the back of a black Range Rover in Beverly Hills today... but she was wearing it.Stiviano apparently then spewed obscenities at the Range Rover driver, witnesses told TMZ, before having an assistant deal with the details.
Could this be the manifestation of Tommy Lasorda's wish? Probably not, but the former L.A. Dodgers manager and long-time friend of Sterling did tell an ABC affiliate last week in West Palm Beach, FL that he wasn't surprised by Sterling's remarks. And then of Stiviano:
"And I don't wish that girl any bad luck, but I hope she gets hit by a car."
Today was just a fender bender, but Lasorda should probably stop wishing ill on others, just in case he has the ability to curse people.
