The Pellicano Trial: The Pinup's PutdownThu Mar 20, 2008 @ 10:15AM PST

So far in the Anthony Pellicano trial, all the good quotes are coming from beautiful women. First there was Tarita Virtue. Now we can add Linda Doucett, Garry Shandling's former fiance, who called Pellicano "the only bad guy I know" in testimony yesterday.
Doucett, an actress and former Playboy playmate, was called to the stand by prosecutors to speak about a Pellicano investigation in the Shandler-Grey tangle. Doucett said she received a phone call from an anonymous caller, threatening, "If you talk to your friend (FBI Agent) Stan (Ornellas), or the press, you won't be seeing your child anymore."
She told Pellicano and the jury that she believed Pellicano had something to do with it. "You're just the only bad guy I know," she said. "People I know don't call and threaten me. And I just looked at all the information you looked up on me."
The government also put Patricia Millett on the witness stand. She's a lawyer who previously worked at Greenberg Glusker with Bert Fields representing Grey on the Garry Shandling matter. She testified about attaining personal information on Doucett, including DMV information and a criminal history background check. The government's presentation has just started to explore the connection between Pellicano and Fields. This could get interesting.
