Rachel Uchitel retired last year from VIP nightclub hostessing. Apparently, she decamped for Los Angeles, where she attended DGA Detectives Academy and graduated last week. Now, she is gainfully employed once again. Today, she opens a private detective service in New York. Naturally, you’d think this would be the first stop for women who suspect their rich and powerful husbands are diddling, well, someone like Rachel. But Rach says that isn’t her type of case. “Obviously, people want to go down the ‘cheating’ road, and assume it’s all about me finding cheating spouses,” she said. “But I’m less interested in that. I’m more interested in cases that haven’t made it on Nancy Grace or Jane Velez-Mitchell, but are just as important. Missing people, cold cases . . . and sure, a few liars out there who need to be exposed. I want to solve cases for the underdog, for people who don’t have a voice.”
Awwww.Apparently, the owner of DGA Detectives Academy, Dale Gustafson, says Rachel is pretty good. He shared that she scored 97 percent on her final exam—one of the three highest scroes in the school’s history. “She’s very smart,” he said. “She’s very meticulous and careful, and good with details, and pretty in-your-face about going in and talking to people. She’s not afraid to ask the hard questions.”
Oh, and she’s seeking a permit to carry a gun. “I love the Glock,” she said.
Criminals, watch out. And I hope a reality TV producer gets on this, stat.
