V. Stiviano attacked by men shouting racial slurs
The woman at the center of the Donald Sterling scandal was punched in the face by two white men who called her racial slurs outside a New York City restaurant over the weekend. Stiviano was in New York for a TV appearance with CNN's Anderson Cooper. CNN canceled the interview, but a spokesperson said it had nothing to do with the attack.
