Rachel Uchitel, who holds the dubious honor of being the first woman linked to Tiger Woods, has landed herself a new, hard-to-get gig as a reporter for “Extra.” Apparently, during a recent interview, she “so impressed producers that she’s been offered a job as a special correspondent,” explained a spokesperson for the show. In addition to covering nightlife hot spots, Rachel will get personal on the air—just not about Tiger—and discuss her quest to find a good man. [Radar]
This has me thinking—is being involved in a sex scandal a shortcut to a media career? Because Rachel isn’t nearly the only scandalite who seems to have been fast-tracked. Keep reading »
Breaking news: Tiger Woods, his wife and his mistress might all actually be 8th graders. They’re sure acting like it!
Sources tell The Daily Beast that right before The National Enquirer printed a story about Woods’ affair with Rachel Uchitel, he warned Elin Nordegren about the story and put her on the phone with Uchitel, assuming she could convince his wife that there was no affair. Their cover story, apparently, was that Woods and Uchitel had only met once or twice on social occasions. (Buddy, when your wife believes your mistress’s word before she believes your word, you have problems.) Nordegren allegedly once spoke on the phone with Uchitel for half an hour, but didn’t completely believe the hooey that their relationship was platonic. Sources say that the couple bickered about an alleged affair on Thanksgiving night until Woods allegedly got tired of bickering and popped an Ambien to fall asleep. Keep reading »
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Is Tiger Woods hiding from the public eye because Elin Nordegren busted him in the face so bad with a golf club that he had to fly to Phoenix for plastic surgery?
That’s what a letter posted on the gossip blog Hollywood Interrupted is claiming. Blogs Gawker and Deadspin both say the letter is a hoax, as it is supposedly written by a close confidante of Woods’ agent, who also happens to be one of Woods’ neighbors. Probably true—hoaxes are hot right now! Anyway, the dirtiest dirt, after the jump … Keep reading »
Running from the paparazzi is a great way to burn calories. Rachel Uchitel, Tiger Woods‘ alleged mistress, had to jog to the gym — Equinox, BTW, maybe the same one Jessica and Natalie Portman go to?! — in order to evade the flashbulbs. [New York City, 12/8/09] Keep reading »
Remember Rachel Uchitel who didn’t, then did, then didn’t have an affair with Tiger Woods? Well, according to RadarOnline.com, she told friends that they liked to pop an Ambien before doing the no-pants dance. A “friend” quotes Rachel as saying, “You know you have crazier sex on Ambien—you get into that Ambien haze. We have crazy Ambien sex.” One would think taking one of these prescription insomnia pills would put you straight to sleep, but apparently, it makes you crazy horny. And evidently, Tiger and Rachel aren’t the only ones to have discovered this. Keep reading »
Remember when Rachel Uchitel swore that she’d only met Tiger Woods twice, casually through work, and said, “The whole thing’s a lie. It’s just stupid,” in reference to the rumors of their affair? JUST KIDDING. Now she says she really was involved with him, and she’ll be holding a press conference today at 2:30 p.m. to tell us all about it. Huh, that turnaround didn’t take long, did it? TMZ is reporting that Tiger and Rachel were texting on Thanksgiving, and when Elin asked Tiger whom he was talking to, a fight allegedly broke out. Elin grabbed the phone and called Rachel, which led to the golf club wielding, which led to the car accident. And RadarOnline.com is saying that when Tiger and Rachel were in Australia at the same time—which Rachel claimed was just a coincidence—he actually paid for the vacay. [NY Post]
**Updated** This press conference has been cancelled. What is going on here? Keep reading »
Uh oh. It just became an even worse week to be named “Tiger Woods.” A 24-year-old L.A. cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs, who appeared on trashy VH1 dating show “Tool Academy,” claims she has also boinked the very married golf pro. According to a story on UsMagazine.com, Grubbs claims she and Woods had a two-and-a-half year-long relationship and engaged in 20 sexual encounters. Grubbs also claims to possess 300 text messages from Woods and a condemning voicemail in which Woods says his wife, Elin Nordegren, has discovered their affair. Eeek! But once again: take these rumors with a grain of salt, innocent until proven guilty, fame-hungry bitches, etc., etc. Still, we’ve got to say, it would seem that between Grubbs and Rachel Uchitel, the woman whom The National Enquirer accused of being “the other woman,” Tiger has a thing for party girls, doesn’t he?

Rachel Uchitel, the woman rumored to be swinging Tiger Woods’ club (if you know what I mean), is not happy about her sudden notoriety. Especially since she claims that she never even slept with Tiger. In a very long interview with the NY Post this morning, she denies the claim and offers to take a lie detector test to clear things up. She says that she explicitly told The National Enquirer that the story wasn’t true, and that at least one of their sources for the information, Ashley Sampson, was shaky. “[The source of the story] is not even a friend of mine. I’ve met her twice in my life. I’ve got some really horrible things that I can say about her and her past,” says Rachel. “She had a personal reason to make this up. She got herself invited on a trip that I went on [to Europe]. She conducted herself in a manner that was so embarrassing that the trip ended after a day.” [NY Post]
But let’s back up for a moment. Who is this girl? Keep reading »
What was Tiger Woods—married man, father of two—doing behind the wheel of his SUV at 2:25 a.m. on Friday night? Police are unclear what the billionaire pro-golfer was up to before he crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree in his Florida gated community, but they classified the incident as a mere traffic accident. Could it be that 33-year-old Woods had a late-night case of the munchies? Nay, TMZ is spreading the rumor that his wife, 28-year-old Swedish model Elin Nordegren confronted her husband about an alleged affair, scratched his face, and then as he fled his house, came after his SUV with a golf club. It sounds just crazy enough to be true! [TMZ] Keep reading »
