The trial of former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell got underway this week in Richmond. A trial detailing alleged corruption by a former elected official was always going to be interesting. But this trial? It's like an episode of The Sopranos set at a circus acted by the cast of "Real Housewives."

How did investigators first stumble onto the relationship between McDonnell and Williams?
Which prominent national politician wound up being interviewed by investigators?
To what did Maureen McDonnell's attorneys compare Williams in an effort to undermine his testimony?
What did Williams allegedly buy for Bobby McDonnell?
How much did Cailin pay for her wedding dress?
What wedding gift for Jeanine did Williams decide against purchasing?
What task did Maureen McDonnell allegedly insist her kids perform on Christmas 2012?
Where did McDonnell allegedly play golf on Williams' dime?
How many Oscar de la Renta dresses did Williams buy for Maureen at their first meeting?
Which illness does Williams claim Anatabloc can treat?
