Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda is no fan of V. Stiviano, the ex-girlfriend of embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, and told a local Florida television station Tuesday that he hoped she gets hit by a car.

WPBF-TV reported that Lasorda and retired longtime collegiate basketball coach Rollie Massimino were in the West Palm Beach area to accept an honorary degree from Northwood University and act as its commencement speaker when he made the comments.

"I don't wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car," Lasorda said after telling the television station that Sterling was a longtime buddy of his.

"I've been a friend of that guy's for 30 years," Lasorda confessed to the WPBF-TV. "It doesn't surprise me that he said those things. And he shouldn't have said it. He just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things he shouldn't be doing."

Lasorda has a history of shooting from the hip.

TMZ reported Tuesday that the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office contacted Donald Sterling's wife, Shelly Sterling, for an interview in connection with an extortion investigation involving Stiviano.

TMZ said the office's investigation bureau is trying to determine if there is proof that Stiviano tried to demand money from Sterling to keep additional audio recordings between the two from being released to the public. Stiviano has said that she has more than 100 hours of recordings between the two.

"We have no knowledge (of the extortion investigation) and therefore no comment," TMZ reported that Stiviano's law firm said to them about the district attorney's office's interview with Shelly Sterling.
