Kelly Rutherford & Daniel GierschTestify in Custody Dispute

Kelly Rutherford and her estranged husband Daniel Giersch sparred over the actress's work demands as they both testified Thursday in a bitter custody dispute over 2-year-old son, Hermes.

After almost two hours of testimony, no ruling was made and the hearing will resume Friday morning.

"Hermes doesn't feel comfortable in New York,He's in constant fear, not knowing what's going on. It's not easy there, it's not safe, it's noisy. As a father you see whether a child is comfortable or not." said the German entrepreneur

Giersch described how he's been physically with his son "90 percent of the time," taking him to the playground, zoo, museums, and more, while Rutherford was working on Gossip Girl.

Rutherford, wearing a black sweater, matching pants and gold earrings with her hair pulled back, took the stand next.

"If I'm being asked to choose my career over my son, I choose my son,however,I need this job to pay my bills, legal bills, and Daniel has offered no support." she said.

Her testimony was cut short and the hearing will resume at 9 a.m.

Outside of court, a smiling Rutherford said, "Ultimately I want the best for Daniel, and I want the best for our family."

Giersch made no comment following the hearing.

Kirsten Gillibrand: New York's Next Senator

A source close to a rival candidate for the Senate seat tells the Huffington Post that Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand has indeed been picked, as was first reported earlier this evening. The source said that the rival candidate had been told by Gov. Paterson's office that he had chosen Gillibrand.

Gov. Paterson appears poised today to pick an upstate congresswoman with close ties to Hillary Clinton as the next U.S. senator, the Daily News has learned.
After two months of speculation and chaos, sources said Paterson has settled on Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-Hudson) to fill the seat of Clinton, President Obama's new secretary of state.

Politico noted some of the benefits that Gillibrand would provide Paterson and the strong opposition to the pick from New York Democrat Carolyn McCarthy:

Gillibrand brings several important political attributes critical to Patterson, who became governor when Eliot Spitzer resigned and has never topped a statewide ticket, when both run for their offices in 2010: She represents a relatively conservative part of upstate the governor hopes to woo, she's a formidable fundraiser with connections to Hillary Clinton's cash-generating apparatus and she's a woman in a state that prides itself of inclusiveness.
"She would not be my choice and I talked to the governor about it two weeks ago," McCarthy told Politico last night. "This morning I basically started getting calls saying he was going to choose her and I had to speak out, even at the risk of alienating the governor. I do not believe New York should have a senator who has these positions... I just came through the 15th anniversary of when my husband was killed and I my son was maimed from the shooting."
