Rachelle Spector: HBO Film Brought Me to Tears
March 13, 2013
ET’s Brooke Anderson sat down with convicted murderer Phil Spector's wife Rachelle, and got her take on the upcoming HBO film about her husband.
Rachelle said, in her only interview on the subject, "It literally brought tears to my eyes. … They have him as a foul-mouthed megalomaniac and they depict him as a minotaur -- like he draws people into his labyrinth and he locks them in and won’t let them out."
Rachelle explained that she is nowhere to be found in the film and said, "[HBO] wanted to show no female support. No supporters at all." She goes on to say, "They didn't want to meet my husband. They didn’t want to know what he thought, how he acted, anything about the music. They wanted nothing to do with either of us."
In 2009, Spector was convicted of second-degree murder in the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson in his Alhambra, California home. He is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life.
HBO’s Phil Spector is set to premiere Sunday, March 24 at 9 p.m. on the cable network.
