By Frank Rosario and Danika Fears. Disgraced former insurance executive Michael David Barrett described how he requested a room next to the TV journalist so he could film peephole video of her at a Nashville hotel — easily getting her hotel room number by using a house phone that showed where she was staying. But when he showed up, a hotel employee told him that the room he had requested was unavailable and they were going to put him in a different area, Barrett testified. While waiting for his room, Barrett said he went to the hotel restaurant, where he found a house phone that displays room numbers and called the operator. Barrett went to the 10th-floor room and saw that a maid was cleaning the one next door, so he requested to stay there. Their rooms were in an alcove, hidden from view by anyone standing in the hallway, Barrett said.
