Here are the highlights from Friday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
– V. Stiviano claimed she never had sex with Donald Sterling because he’s a homosexual. She said she was simply used as the billionaire’s “beard.”
The allegations come in response to a prior lawsuit filed by Sterling’s wife, Shelly Sterling, according to reports. Shelly Sterling’s original lawsuit depicted Stiviano as someone who convinced the former Clippers owner to get her a Ferrari, $240,000 in cash and a $1.8 million house on the outskirts of Beverly Hills.
Stiviano claims it was all for the price of covering up Sterling’s sexual orientation.
“The gift that keeps on giving, isn’t it?” Fauria said.
Said Benz: “You thought for a while that Donald Sterling would just be allowed to fade off into anonymity, literally crawl under a rock and die. But stuff like this is not going to let it happen.
“She’s suing, by the way, for $10 million. The cost of being a beard in Los Angeles is $10 million on top of whatever she’s been given already.”
Fauria asked Benz if he’s ever been a beard for a girl.
“I’ve never been a lesbian beard,” Benz said. “But the closest I think I ever came to that situation was I did go on a date with a WNBA player once. She was like a 5-foot-5 point guard.
“I’m pretty sure she was a straight WNBA player, though. It was a legitimate date. That’s not a beard situation. That’s why I said it was close.”
– Fauria asked for Benz’s opinion on a situation he encountered when he was in Washington, D.C., two weeks ago.
“Kids were going crazy, I was talking to my girlfriend out here when I’m on the road and things are going crazy,” Fauria said. “I have some down time so I’m thinking, ‘I’m going to watch a movie.’ But I feel guilty telling her that I’m going to have 2 1/2 hours of downtime to watch a movie that we both agreed we would watch together.”
Fauria asked if he should feel guilty about it.
“Yes,” Benz said. “Just putting it out there. Not so much guilty. You should feel stupid about it because she’s going to hold it against you now.”
