The Phil Spector Trial: We Watch Court TV So You Don't Have To (06/22)

June 22, 2007 10:59 AM ET

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY LA criminologist Lynne Herold, the prosecution's last witness, was back on the stand yesterday after a daylong recess. Herold spoke at length about the blood splatter from the gunshot that killed Lana Clarkson. First, she testified that blood was found on the left inside pocket of Spector's white jacket. Also, a small spot of blood found on the jacket proved to have traveled only two or three feet maximum before landing, meaning Spector was close to Clarkson, and according to Herold's opinion, facing Clarkson. Clarkson was also seated when she was shot, which beared similarity to some previous witnesses.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR Bad. Herold is the prosecution's big gun, and she's wrapping up months' worth of forensics jargon and evidence into a nice little guilty verdict. Herold is scheduled to face the defense today.

HAIR & MAKEUP UPDATE Spector, still sporting his new wig, wore a gray jacket, canary yellow shirt, and a shiny, electric blue tie that screamed "I'm so getting off the hook."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
