WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY? Searching for any evidence that Lana Clarkson killed herself at Phil Spector’s home, the defense found a possible catalyst for Clarkson’s supposed suicide: Transformers director Michael Bay. The curiously named Punkin Pie was the latest of Lana Clarkson’s “good friends” to take the stand, testifying that two weeks before Clarkson was found shot to death, she was snubbed by the action-film guru at a Hollywood party, leading a sobbing Clarkson to say, “I hate this town and I don’t want to be here anymore.” The defense tried to make the argument that “here” meant Earth and not Hollywood.
IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR? Good. Despite the ditzy aura of well, her name, Punkin Pie seemed like a sincere and trustworthy witness, a rarity thus far for the defense.
HAIR & WARDROBE UPDATE: Spector seamlessly integrated vests into his wardrobe, wearing a tan vest under his tan suit with a bright tangerine tie.
