GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Joining us on the phone is Amber Frey's (search) father, Ron Frey, welcome Ron.

RON FREY, AMBER FREY'S FATHER: Hi, Greta.

VAN SUSTEREN: Ron, how tough is this for your daughter to testify and go through this?

FREY: Oh, darn, it's been months of waiting, months of waiting. I'm so happy for her that it's almost over though.

VAN SUSTEREN: Ron, in all the conversations you've had with your daughter, I know you've studied this case pretty carefully. You're a very dedicated father and very much involved. What's the most incriminating thing in your mind that Scott said to Amber?

FREY: Well, not any particular thing other than all of the calls while Laci was missing and while he was supposedly supposed to be helping find her, just every little call adds up, you know. No one particular call though.

VAN SUSTEREN: Why do you think if the affair was the motive for this murder, why do you think he never told her in any of the phone calls, “Don't talk to the police? I love you immensely. You're the most important thing to me in the world. Just keep your mouth shut and we'll live together happily ever after forever.”

FREY: Well, I said it on your show before. I'll say it again. I think the man has serious mental problems, which (UNINTELLIGIBLE) or side of him didn't confess to her. Which side is being truthful, we don't know. I don't even think Scott knows.

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you think, I mean in looking back, I mean at one point she talks about how she's a magnet for basically bad men. I think she said wolves in sheep's clothing. Is Amber hurting from sort of the bad relationship or from going through this experience as a witness?

FREY: Oh, darn that's a tough one, Greta. Is she hurting because of the bad experience or testifying?

VAN SUSTEREN: Yes, which one's worse?

FREY: Oh, darn that would be a tough one. Now, you know, before we run out of time, I would like to make a point about a couple things, Greta.

VAN SUSTEREN: Talk fast, Ron. We're at the end of the show.

FREY: OK. I hope Mr. Geragos does cross-examine her because it would not be fair for her to have went all through this and not have the chance to cross-examine him. It's not going to go down the way everybody thinks. She'll be strong.

VAN SUSTEREN: And you know what, Ron, I've heard those tapes. She sure knows how to question, so I'm sure she could take the answers just as well. She did an amazing cross-examination of Scott Peterson (search). Not sure what she got but it was amazing. Ron, thank you.

FREY: Thank you, ma'am.
