GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Joining us in Redwood City is Gloria Allred, the attorney for today's star witness [in the Scott Peterson trial], Amber Frey. Welcome, Gloria.
GLORIA ALLRED, AMBER FREY'S ATTORNEY: Thank you, Greta.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, Gloria, how'd your client do today?
ALLRED: Well, it's hard for me to be objective, but listening to what everyone else was telling me about how they thought she did, she gets an A plus.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, we'll talk about her testimony in a second, but I mean, how was it for her?
ALLRED: Well, obviously, it would be very difficult, nerve-wracking, to know that you're going to have to get up there and testify in a double murder case, a high-profile case where your every word is going to be analyzed and reported and every way that you look is going to be discussed and how you're dressed and how you come across. I think she did very well under the high-pressure situation and I'm very proud of her.
VAN SUSTEREN: Do you think it was what she expected, or was it a better experience or worse experience than she had anticipated going into this?
ALLRED: I'm not sure that she really knew exactly what to expect because until you're really sitting there on the witness stand, answering the questions, it's really hard to know. But I think she came across very credibly and that's because she is telling the truth. It's easy to do that when you're telling the truth. And she has an excellent memory and she is very truthful and Scott learned that she's a very intelligent young woman.
VAN SUSTEREN: And nonetheless, it's an exhausting experience anytime you're on the stand...
VAN SUSTEREN: ... for six hours...
ALLRED: Yes, exhausting, especially when you have a 3-and-a-half- month-old infant with you, which she did. And of course, she, during the break, was breast-feeding and changing diapers and — because she's a very devoted mom. And I really admire her for that, as well.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, when you prepare a witness for trial — and I'm sure the prosecutors prepared her for trial. I mean, I would prepare my witness for trial. You mentioned clothes. When I observed her, she had a very sort of conservative black suit on, skirt to knee. Is that something by design, your idea, prosecutor's idea or is this her idea?
ALLRED: Well, she picked out her clothing and I'm happy with what she wore. The prosecutors did not suggest to her what she should wear.
VAN SUSTEREN: How about preparation? How many hours did the prosecutors spend working with her? Because she was required by the questions to remember incredible details about phone calls, dates, times. It may have been a relatively short period of time, but it was demanding of anyone's memory.
ALLRED: Well, and a lot is demanded of her because there's so many telephone calls that she recorded at the request of law enforcement. And this was a relationship. Even the court called it a relationship, not four dates, the way the defense wants to characterize it. There was a lot for her to think about. But I think that any preparation that she might have been required to do would be substantially less than what Scott Peterson would be required to have...
VAN SUSTEREN: All right...
ALLRED: ... if he were take the witness stand, because he would have to try to explain away all the lies...
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well...
ALLRED: ... and there's no way he could do it.
VAN SUSTEREN: ... give me an idea. I mean, give me the background. How much time did she spend with DA Harris or someone else preparing her?
ALLRED: Look, I'm interested in the end result and the end result was that she did a great job.
VAN SUSTEREN: Why not tell it to me? I mean, what's the big dodge? We all know this is done for every single witness. Why the big secret on this? This is so fundamental to practicing law.
ALLRED: Well, you know, I have no doubt that she will be asked that question on the witness stand at some point and I'm sure that Mr. Geragos would like to know and he'll get his answer in due course.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, one of the great, big mysteries, then, will remain tonight, is how much preparation — nothing wrong with preparing your witness. A lawyer should prepare a witness.
