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.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
