The star witness in the Bess Myerson alimony-fixing trial admitted she may write a book about the case, but bristled at suggestions it might be called "Daughter Dearest" because of her damaging testimony against her mother.

Sukhreet Gabel, expected to return to the stand Friday in U.S. District Court, also admitted Thursday she probably once "harbored a deep resentment" toward her mother, a judge who has also been charged in the case.Defense attorney Jay Goldberg asked if she would write a book about the trial.

"I have considered," replied Gabel during her eighth day on the witness stand.

"Do you have a working title, `Daughter Dearest'?" he asked, alluding to the runaway best seller "Mommie Dearest," in which Joan Crawford's daughter painted a scathing portrait of the actress.

"No," Gabel replied tersely as the courtroom filled with laughter.
