don't have to worry about that. i was upset because he threw minorities in, african-americans, latinos into the situation. i'm a leader in the black community, so i can't let anybody attack our people and not respond. that's why i responded. >> you said you were photographed with v. stiviano. you are photographed with -- >> millions of people. >> millions of people. you said you knew her well. >> these are the facts, anderson. i never met the young lady. i took a picture with her, looks like at a dodgers game. that's it. that's all i know of her. he said i'm trying to set him up. he asked me to go on the barbara walters show with him. >> a week or week and a half ago? because he met with barbara walters. >> it was before that. i told him i wouldn't do it. i said the number one thing he
needs to do is apologize to everyone including myself. he said i'll get to that. >> he wanted you to go on barbara walters with him sitting next to him? >> i said no. i said donald you should consult with your attorneys. this is a big thing. talk to your attorneys and let them advise you what to do. you need to go public. >> i'll apologize later, but i want you to go on this show. he was adamant about me going on the show with him. i told him no, i wouldn't do that. when i saw the interview, it was sad. i'm going to pray for this young man. i hope donald is see the mistake he has made and the people he's hurt along the way. what's really sad, you know, it's not about me. this is about the woman you love outing you and taping you and
putting your conversation out here for everybody to know. that wasn't me. i didn't do that. i don't know this young lady. this is between you two. >> donald sterling hearing more from his interview with anderson cooper where he apologized and lashed out at magic johnson. sterling is talking about his wife and his own behavior. >> i think we'll divorce. i think she's already filed. i guess i was bad committing all those terrible, i don't even want to say it, but, you know, people say how do you commit adultery. you just, you say, well, every man or parents or friends have a mistress. it may make you smile, but when you are so old, you don't think it's wrong anymore, if you have
a little bit of fun. you don't have much time. if you have a little bit of fun, you can't do what you did before. nobody expects, but you want to be cared for. everybody wants to be cared for. i made such a mistake. i thought that woman really cared for me. >> well, you can see much more of anderson's interview on "ac 360" here on cnn. >> i asked mark cuban about sterling and whether he might be forced to sell. this is what he told me. >> i can't comment on mr. sterling. we are a franchise organization. it's not apples to apples and taking property. it's what i have learned since my comments. someone who is a mcdonald's franchisee spitting in the french fries, you would lose
your franchise. >> he thinks the clippers will sell for more than $1 billion. well more than $1 billion. we'll have more including what he thinks of the tech bubble and his app cyber dust. he's worried about privacy and you have this footprint that lasts forever. at least 205 workers in a coal mine have been killed in an explosion trapped 500 yards down. 150 miles south of istanbul. authorities say nearly 800 people were in the mine when a transformer exploded. nearly half of those people have been rescued. we'll have a live report from turkey in the next half hour. new details in the search of
hundreds of nigerian girls abducted and missing for weeks. they have identified 77 of them. this is put out by boko haram. some relatives say it's not their daughters in the video and some of the girls shown may have been abducted years earlier. we have live in nigeria this morning. if the families are right, does that make it harder to track the girls down? >> reporter: sadly, any miscommunication or confusion contributes to the loss of time. that's in addition to the setback of the four or five days head start they had why nigerian authorities scrambled to move. some glimmer of hope is the deployment of the u.s. spy planes. they are allowing the nigerian military to access information and to get a broader picture of
the terrain out there. it is difficult in some places. christine? >> unbelievable. so, in terms of the girls in this video, they think many of these were abducted prior to the girls in the school going missing. have they identified the girls? >> reporter: that stretches across much of the north of nigeria. to try to pinpoint specific families from a grainy video posted online, that's going to be tough. that's another issue that is slowing things down. i understand a lot of families that have lost girls in the last four or five years, they are coming forward, going themselves to the nigerian authorities trying to help and trying to find out if this is going to be the time they finally find out what happened to their children. >> thank you so much for that

what special precautions is the hospital taking to prepare for this? >> interesting. we have been preparing for these virus. last year, about a year ago, we did an exercise to see how our system work and the example that was used was a fictitious patient with mers. i believe that we have been prepared well for these, but until it arrives. >> reporter: the initial testing results should be available this week, could be as early as today. doctors are waiting to learn the results before deciding what to do next. victor? christine? >> thank you. breaking news this morning. a wildfire is forcing thousands to leave their homes in california. what's already been destroyed, ahead? parents terrified when a bounce house soars 50 feet into the air

breaking news from the oscar pistorius trial where the judge has now put the case on hold. rulings that the olympic sprinter will have to undergo a 30-day psychiatric evaluation. a psychiatrist testifying for the defense said pistorius had an anxiety disorder and could be a danger to society. kelly is live at the courthouse in pretoria. it appears this defense strategy of putting the psychiatrist on the stand has backfired. what do you think? >> reporter: not necessarily. what was particularly interesting about the wording of the judges decision was the fact on one hand, he won the application. on the other hand, she confirmed the importance of the testimony
saying it is in line with pistorius' testimony. perhaps that is not something the state was expecting and should it result in a report that is substantially in line with foster's report, that will have backfired for the state. it will further strengthen foster's evidence and mean that it remains an essential part of the court record when the judge retires to make the final vekt. >> the defense's strategy has been a moving target. was this diagnosis of general anxiety part of the initial defense? >> reporter: well, it was part of the initial defense in the sense that it is very common where the defendant raises the mistaken belief of defense like
pistorius has always done. you need a source of surrounding psychological evidence to support the claim and also to provide something for the judge to compare and contrast what the accused says he was thinking at the time. it always would have been from that. they wouldn't have perceived a state prosecutor would jump on that as an opportunity to try to force them into arguing a defense they were, in fact, trying not to argue and been part of the strategy. >> thank you. >> really stunning development. that's going to be important to follow. we're going to be right back. ♪
