She’s amazing, isn’t she, that Gloria? If there’s a wronged woman roaming the earth, eager to tell her story or set the record straight or involve herself in the headlines, Gloria will not only find her but bring her to the microphones.
Today’s client was Herman Cain’s latest accuser, and when I first saw her I said aloud, “Why do they always have to be blonde?” I was expecting a cliche. Instead, as I listened to the woman’s tale of groping, etc., I thought she sounded credible. And later, when she was interviewed by Piers Morgan (I can’t believe I actually watched his show), I was even more inclined to believe her. She was articulate and didn’t seem to be angling for a book deal and said she wanted her son to be proud of her.
Speaking of book deals, will Conrad Murray get one? He’ll have plenty of time to write – either in jail or during house arrest. That case was a slam dunk, so I wasn’t exactly blown away by the verdict. What surprised me were all the people lined up on the street carrying signs and cheering – for hours before and after the jury left the courthouse. Occupy Wall Street is one thing but Occupy Michael Jackson’s Death Trial? Beats me.
