Dating an NBA owner has its perks, and in this case a rise in sudden fame — whether wanted or not — is just one of them. Can a reality TV show be far away?

It all began over an Instagram picture of the model and Magic Johnson. As TMZ reported, with the audio no less, Donald Sterling was less than enchanted with V. Stiviano’s choice of companions. Allegedly when he saw that Instagram photo he launched into a rant, saying, in part, “Why are you taking pictures with minorities? Why?”

It should be noted that V. Stiviano is black and reportedly also of Mexican descent. But nonetheless Sterling is heard being quite vehement about it. “Why publicize it on the Instagram and why bring it to the games?” he says at one point.

The uproar is just beginning and right in the midst of the NBA playoffs it will continue as will the interest in the girlfriend who inadvertently became the catalyst.

While that now infamous photo with Magic Johnson has been deleted and no one — not even TMZ — has been able to find it, there are plenty more pictures of the long-haired exotic beauty to be found on Instagram; you can see a few of them in the gallery below.

AS for the details of the V. Stiviano biography that many are widely searching, there is very little that has been uncovered. For her part, she describes herself on Instagram with several titles including artist, writer, and stylist. Yes, and philanthropist and chef as well as lover.

She was described publicly in quite a different context when Donald Sterling’s estranged wife Rochelle Sterling filed a lawsuit against her alleging that during a sexual affair with her husband which began in 2010 that she received gifts from him that include cash and property all of which she is attempting to recover under California’s community property law. Sterling’s lawsuit also alleges that V. Stiviano goes by other names including Vanessa Perez, Monica Gallegos and Maria Valdez.

The story is still unfolding. Will V. Stiviano speak out? Find herself on reality television? For now, she remains on Instagram, although her account is now private and people can follow her only by request.

But meanwhile, you can see more pictures below!
