UPDATE: Rachel Uchitel has said that she was “grossly misquoted” and is considering legal action against the NY Post for misconstruing the words below. Read more after the jump.
“I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good … I’m almost happy it ended the way it did because I’ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced … [If he had lived], I would be a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Point, Long Island.”
—Rachel Uchitel, who you know best as the VIP hostess believed to be one of Tiger Woods‘ many lovers, talks to Page Six Magazine about James Andrew O’Grady, her investment banker fiance who was killed in 9/11. Now, I know everyone handles grief and the process of moving on very differently, but still, these quotes strike me as pretty odd. I mean, yes, it would had been sad if their romance turned south, but somehow it seems more tragic that he was killed in the prime of his life? The full interview comes out on Thursday, so we shall withhold judgment until then. [NY Post]

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. Keep reading »
Rachel Uchitel has had a rocky road on “Celebrity Rehab.” She agreed to do the show to deal with her Ambien addiction and “emotional issues,” which most people assumed to mean her tendency to get involved with married and famous men—she was linked not only to Tiger Woods but also David Boreanaz. But in late July, she abruptly left the show after an intense therapy session and checked into a hotel. She returned less than 24 hours later, after hearing pleas from the producers and co-stars Janice Dickinson, Eric Roberts (bro of Julia), and Jason Wahler (of “The Hills”). The freak-out was apparently over having to talk about her father, who died of a cocaine overdose when she was 15.
Last week, Rachel visited the site of another trauma with Dr. Drew. She made the trek to Ground Zero. Keep reading »
Rachel Uchitel may have gotten with Tiger Woods and David Boreanaz, but she has struck out with Jake Pavelka. Supposedly, Rachel—who just finished filming “Celebrity Rehab 4“—contacted one of Jake’s friends, asking if they’d set her up with the newly single former “Bachelor.” But he declined. “Jake thinks she’s probably a ‘nice girl’ but isn’t looking to date anytime soon,” the friend told Radar. Yeah, with his emphasis on “morals,” we just can’t see Jake going for Rachel. Sorry. [Radar] Keep reading »
I know you guys have barely been able to sleep since we told you in early June that “Celebrity Rehab 4” was on indefinite hold because the producers were having a tough time finding big name addicts willing to have their withdrawal symptoms and teary group-therapy sessions aired on primetime TV. But—never fear!—the situation has been resolved. The show has two new participants. One of them is a big duh—Jeremy London, who basically wrote “Hey Dr. Drew, cast me!” across his forehead in permanent marker with the whole I-was-kidnapped-and-forced-to-smoke-dope story.
The second new person on the show is a little bit of a surprise—Rachel Uchitel, i.e. first woman to be accused of boning Tiger Woods. Apparently, she’s seeking treatment for a prescription pill addiction. What kind, Rachel, what kind?!?! [PopEater] Keep reading »
The big question women across the nation are dying to know the answer to is whether LeBron James will propose to his longtime girlfriend and children’s mother, Savannah Brinson, or will he find new love while in Miami — that’s according to Hollywood Life. I bet you weren’t even thinking about LeBron’s love life this week. Hollywood Life, however, thinks he should ditch Savannah, whom he has dated since high school, because if he hasn’t married her by now, then they must be unhappy and he must be a commitment-phobe. Newsflash, you don’t have to be married to make a commitment to each other or to be happy. Not only that, but what’s with this assumption that he’s the one who doesn’t want to get married?

Supposedly, Rachel Uchitel has always dreamed of posing for Playboy. Now that she’s been involved in sex scandals with two separate celebrities, Tiger Woods and David Boreanaz, it appears that she is getting her wish. According to reports, she has a Playboy photo shoot scheduled in three weeks. She won’t be baring all, but will supposedly be revealing her “backside and the topside.” I’m not quite sure what exactly that means, but I assume, as the British would say, you won’t be able to see her front bottom. Oh, and all this is after telling TMZ a while ago, “My family would have a heart attack. And I have to leave something to be desired.” Oops. [NY Daily News, Examiner] Keep reading »
The current issue of New York magazine includes an expose on the real lives of women who are using sex to get paid and get famous. No, they’re not prostitutes, but if you haven’t heard their names already, that’s only because there’s so damn many of them out there these days. From Vegas “nightlife hostess” and Tiger Woods paramour Rachel Uchitel to Manhattan clubs’ so-called “bottle hookers,” it seems that if you want to get your name in the Post these days, it’s not about being a socialite, it’s sure not about having talent, and you don’t even have to have slept with an elected official. All you need to do is have sex with or use your sexuality to hustle the right guy, and not only are you a player in the “21st century courtesan economy,” thanks to the internet, everybody will know your name.
