Meet Phil Spector’s newest recording sensation — his wife, Rachelle. But is the blond babe a publicity-hungry gold digger or a woman of genuine talent? The New York Post investigates and asks, is she making a Spector out of herself?
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.
All around her, impassive New Yorkers sip coffee and tap away on their BlackBerrys. A few heads turn in her direction, while one onlooker shrugs and whispers to the woman next to him: “I think she’s on ‘American Idol.’ ”
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.
In May of 2009, Spector was convicted of murdering actress Lana Clarkson, a cocktail waitress he picked up at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. She died at his 30-room Alhambra, Calif., mansion in 2003 of a gunshot wound to the head. Spector maintains his innocence and is appealing his conviction.
