Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life after a racially charged  conversation with his mistress was leaked to TMZ. Sterling’s mistress, V. Stiviano, is  at the center of the controversy.

Stiviano has a rags to riches story and found a way to use sex, plastic surgery, and a name change to make her way to the top.

Here are 10 things to know about V. Stiviano:

1. She was born Maria Perez and raised in a small Section 8 home in San Antonio, Texas. Her mother is Mexican and her father is black.

2. Her mother was arrested in 2002 after making three of her kids steal $300 worth of groceries from a store. She was arrested, fined and placed on probation.

    Please – media – Get it right , This woman is NOT 31 – she 38 and will be 39 in October. She did NOT graduate in 2001 she was 25 going on 26 in 2001. Investigate inside out when dealing with a con artist who has 10 aliases – she 5 seconds away from 40!
