Rachel Uchitel Says “Don’t Feel Sorry For Me”

Posted on November 15th, 2010 at 4:40 am

The Daily Mail was granted an exclusive interview with Rachel Uchitel and they ended up with this headline:

"I Only Wanted to be Loved: Rachel Uchitel Breaks her Silence on her Affair With Tiger Woods."

That would be a huge scoop, because the former events planner was reportedly paid $10 million to keep quiet about being Tiger's former mistress. The deceptive headline made Rachel so furious she came to RumorFix to set the record straight.

"I don't appreciate it," Rachel tells RumorFix exclusively, "I was strictly doing an interview about Celebrity Rehab and nothing else was mentioned."

Even when RumorFix read the story, it appeared to us that Rachel had spoken about the unspeakable:

Rachel Uchitel never set out to be the catalyst for the most spectacular personal and professional downfall of recent times. She never attempted to entrap her man or set him up in a tawdry kiss-and-tell.

"I was there, the reporter took everything out of context," says Rachel's publicist Valerie Allen. "Rachel never mentioned Tiger Woods' name."

At one point the reporter asked Rachel if she'd ever consider dating a married man:

I ask her if she regrets sleeping with a married man: ‘Yes, of course,’ she snaps. ‘I will never, ever do that again.

Although bloggers are speculating she was talking about Tiger, her rep says, "She was not referring to anyone specifically."

Rachel is furious that a "story taken out of context" would launch a flurry of articles on CNN, Huffington Post and Popeater.

She's especially upset that Showbiz Tonight is taking a poll asking: "Do you feel sorry for Rachel Uchitel?"

Rachel says, "I don't need anyone to feel sorry for me. People don't know me -- what would they feel sorry for?"

The 35-year-old, who is recovering from a love addiction and an addiction to prescription drugs, says, "If people want to hear from me watch Celebrity Rehab. It's me for better or for worse."

Rachel says she put herself on the VH1 show that launches on December 1 "to be judged," and suggested critics "take a poll after the show!"

"This should be a lesson to everyone on how things are taken out of context and how the whole world media carried a story that is something I didn't even discuss," Rachel added.
