Embattled (and possibly former) Clippers owned Donald Sterling headed down into the 'hood on Sunday and attended a morning service at Praises of Zion Missionary Baptist Church on San Pedro Street in South Los Angeles. The congregation is predominantly African American — and so are the people who Sterling insulted in his recorded anti-black rant at V. Ativiano — so hey, why not? ABC 7 says he received a round of applause, but also a mixed reception. NBC 4 says Sterling was invited by the church pastor.

Also at ABC 7: Her lawyer says that Stiviano was assaulted by two men outside her New York City hotel, and is "banged up but OK."
