Rachel Uchitel may or may not be Tiger Woods‘ mistress, but she is not—repeat, not—a prostitute. The night club promoter is threatening to sue The View after Joy Behar joked “Yeah, U-ca-tell she’s a hooker” on yesterday’s show. “Even if the host said it in a joking way Rachel is not amused,” said Uchitel’s lawyer, Gloria Allred. “Because she values her reputation and her reputation has been damaged by this statement as it is completely false.”
While Uchitel will reportedly settle for a retraction, Behar may have something else to say if this next rumor is true. According to Extra, Uchitel has offered herself to Playboy for a photo shoot—if they can cough up enough cash. “She wants a lot of money,” said their source. If that’s not ironic enough for you, Ashley Samson, the woman who told the Enquirer Uchitel had hooked up with Woods, is considering suing Uchitel—who’s been bad mouthing Samson in the press—for defamation of character. “She made me look bad,” Samson told the Daily News. Like anyone involved in this story looks good right now.
