And there they stayed until the reality star hit 30 Rockefeller Plaza for a quick cameo alongside Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, joining an event that also recruited Jimmy Fallon, Paul McCartney, "SNL's" Fred Armisen and, well, Jon Hamm.

Jon Preston Settle, accused of four counts of first-degree murder and a single count of attempted murder, told the jury during closing arguments, "I'm not going to argue the law because I'm no good in that area."
