Rachel Uchitel Says She’ll Sue Over 9/11 Story
Rachel Uchitel, perhaps most well known as having helped golfer Tiger Woods commit adultery, is upset at her portrayal in the New York Post today. She says her words were taken out of context and she’s going to sue. I hope she was misquoted or something, because the interview did not make her look good. She basically — allegedly — said that she thinks her fiance James Andrew O’Grady, who died in the terrorist attacks on 9/11, was “too good” to live and that if he hadn’t died, she would have ended up a “fat housewife.”
Here’s the relevant portion from the Post:
â€œIâ€™m almost happy it ended the way it did because Iâ€™ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced.â€ Had Oâ€™Grady lived, Uchitel — who went on to reportedly make $500,000 a year working as a VIP hostess at Tao Las Vegas and at New Yorkâ€™s The Griffin, where she met Woods — believes her life would have been much different. â€œI would be a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Point, LI,â€ she tells the magazine. The toned and tanned Uchitel recently sold her Park Avenue apartment and plans to move to San Francisco with her boyfriend, Matt Hahn. The two are talking about children. â€œI never wanted them … but I know how much I love my dogs, and I think Iâ€™d make a good mother to my own kids.â€
Whoo, boy. Yeah, let’s hope she didn’t say she was “almost” happy about 9/11 because without it she’d be a fat housewife with three kids. Having watched the accompanying video at the Post, however, she doesn’t seem like the brightest bulb on the tree. Perhaps someone who saw her performances on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew can enlighten us as to whether she’s operating with a full deck.
