On a recent morning at Norma’s, the Midtown power breakfast spot, Rachelle Spector, a 30-year-old blonde with gleaming white teeth and the physique of an aerobics instructor, smiles perkily over a plate of pancakes.

Rachelle Spector is an aspiring pop songstress, but she’s better known from paparazzi shots taken during six years of legal wrangling and two trials of her husband, the 70-year-old music producer Phil Spector.
