To continue along Gawker's P.R. fiend theme at the Martha Stewart trial, is it really a good idea for Martha's defense team that Rosie O'Donnell is at the trial, trying to bribe prosecutors with M&Ms? She was there yesterday, as Sam Waksal's secretary testified that Martha called Sam to demand what was going on with ImClone. Today, things will get more sensational, Rosie O'Donnell with a big Taboo poster or not: Key witness Douglas Fanueil, assistant to Martha's broker, Peter Bacanovic, will testify, but not before Martha's defense team asks the judge if they can "grill Faneuil about his alleged use of marijuana and Ecstasy." That's right: They want to ask Faneuil about being a young person living in the 21st century.

One of the best movie courtroom scenes in recent memory: Denise Richards freaking out at Neve Campbell, with Bill Murray as defense attorney, in Wild Things.
