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

June 26, 2007 11:19 AM ET

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY?
LA criminologist Lynne Herold, the last witness for the prosecution, took the stand once more for cross-examination by the defense. Herold, who previously put Spector at close proximity to Lana Clarkson when she was shot, had to deal with a full-court press from Spector lawyer Linda Kenney-Baden, who asked Herold virtually identical questions over and over again in an attempt to reveal flaws in Herold's procedure.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR?
Both. While Kenney-Baden was successful in casting Herold's testimony as opinion rather than fact, her extremely aggressive questioning style came off as overbearing and was uncomfortable to watch.

HAIR & WARDROBE UPDATE:
Spector went for a blue theme, donning a navy-blue jacket and tie accented by a periwinkle shirt.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
