The Phil Spector Trial: We Watch Court TV So You Don't Have To (09/26)

September 26, 2007 8:18 AM ET

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY? With Day eleven of deliberations slowly going down in the jury room, drama in the Phil Spector murder trial traveled out of the courtroom and into the realm of MySpace. It was discovered that on Sunday night, someone posing as Rachelle Spector, Phil's twenty-six-year-old wife, posted a comment on Rachelle Spector's actual MySpace page (the page has since been deleted) that read:
I love Phil Spector-------!!!!!
The Evil Judge Should DIE!!!!
xoxo
Chelle

The picture of the faux-Rachelle who left the comment was the same "Team Spector" shirt-wearing photo that previously appeared on Rachelle's MySpace page. Team Spector defense lawyer Christopher Plourd was quick to inform the media that Rachelle "denies" posting the comment herself. The sheriff's department responded quickly as well, and is currently investigating the incident as a possible threat against the judge. Judge Fidler, who already had a raised-voice run-in with Rachelle earlier this month, didn't comment on the incident when he briefly took the bench to listen to arguments from Lana Clarkson's family's lawyers before the inevitable civil trial starts up.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR? Good, as Phil Spector couldn't buy this much publicity for his wife. While the MySpace message might result in another admonishment from the judge, Rachelle Spector is showing that she harbors some major reality-TV potential. We can definitely see her Dancing With the Stars when this trial finally ends.

“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."
