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.

It has now been one week since Tiger Woods crashed his car following an argument with wife Elin Nordegren, and the rumors about his infidelities are only getting juicier. Following the sex and violence, it shouldn’t be any surprise today’s gossip is all about drugs. Rachel Uchitel reportedly bragged to friends that she and the golfer were fond of spicing their hook ups with Ambien. “You know you have crazier sex on Ambien—you get into that Ambien haze. We have crazy Ambien sex.” Take a second to form a clear mental picture of what she’s describing, folks.
Ambien may not have been Tiger’s only vice. Jaimee Grubbs—the Tool Academy star who released his voicemail—worked until recently at a California marijuana store, according to Radar. While no one’s suggesting the pair had crazy marijuana sex yet, we’re sure an “insider” will crawl out to discuss that possibility shortly. Dude was so boring for so long, we all forgot that his name is Tiger.

Rachel Uchitel has canceled today’s scheduled press conference concerning Tiger Woods and their alleged affair. Uchitel’s lawyer Gloria Allred blamed “unforeseen circumstances”—more than enough for tabloids to start connecting the dots. TMZ claims Tiger and Rachel talked for at least thirty minutes last night, and Radar—who alleged Uchitel would confirm her relationship with Woods at the conference—-says its sources confirmed a $1 million payoff for her silence. Adding fuel to the fire is notorious publicity hound Allred, who responded “no comment” when asked about negotiations between the golfer and his friend with alleged benefits.
Meanwhile, club manager and fellow suspected mistress Kalika Moquin has denied having a romantic rendezvous in Vegas with the golfing star. “It’s completely untrue that there’s anything more than a professional ‘How are you doing? Are you enjoying your time in Vegas?’ conversation [with Woods],” she tells Us. But that doesn’t stop the mag from letting an “insider” respond, “She was absolutely sleeping with him. She brags about it!” Looks like these rumors will live on whether the women decide to milk them or not.

Rachel Uchitel, alleged mistress of Tiger Woods, has scheduled a press conference for later today. Radar Online says the 9/11 widow will admit to an affair with the golf legend, allegations she has consistently denied since the National Enquirer blamed her for the fight between Woods and wife Elin Nordegren that led to his car crash last Friday. While Uchitel will attend, lawyer Gloria Allred will read her statement and take all questions.
In the days since his accident, Woods has been slammed with multiple allegations of infidelity. The athlete offered a public apology for his “transgressions” yesterday while bitterly questioning the need for one. “For me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions. Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.”

As promised, Us Weekly has posted a voicemail Tiger Woods left for “Tool Academy” star and alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs. While not specific about his reasons, Woods sure didn’t want wife Elin Nordegren getting in touch with her (listen below the jump).
“Hey, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye.”
Hmm…if Tiger was worried about the missus learning Jaimee’s full name from her voicemail, wonder what he had her under in his phone? “Sidepiece #2″? Or maybe “#3″? In Touch Weekly says Woods was also getting down with nightclub manager Kalika Moquin last month in Vegas. “They met up on October 27 in his room at the MGM Grand,” says their source. They’ve been friends for three years.”
And what’s the National Enquirer‘s latest contribution to the dogpile? That Tiger’s company actually paid for Rachel Uchitel‘s Australian getaway, despite the 9/11 widow’s claims that their being down under at the same time was strictly coincidental. Tiger. Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. Dude. This doesn’t look good. Just give Elin half your bank account now. Actually, make that 3/4ths. [Photo: Us Magazine]
Jaimee Grubbs has come forward to claim that she had a 31-month long affair with Tiger Woods. The 24-year-old cocktail waitress allegedly has more than 300 text messages from the golf star on her phone, as well an alleged voice mail from Tiger left on November 24, in which he worries that his wife is on to the affair. (Us Magazine will have the message on their site tomorrow for you to listen – and cringe – to.) Tiger and Jamie’s trysts supposedly began in April 2007; Tiger’s wife Elin Nordegren gave birth to their first child, daughter Sam, in June 2007, and their son Charlie in February 2009.
Jaimee, who hails from Los Angeles, recently appeared on VH1′s “Tool Academy” with her then-boyfriend Shawn. She left after a couple of eps when it was revealed that her man had been seeing his ex-girlfriend behind her back during their relationship. If her allegations are true then this would mean that she was secretly gettin’ with Tiger while also being played on TV. In addition, TMZ is reporting that Florida cops will press charges against the golf star today. Oh, how our head spins.

Police are apparently ready to slap Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren with a search warrant so that they may determine if the injuries the golfer sustained this past Friday were inflicted by a car accident or domestic violence. Tiger crashed his car into a fire hydrant near their home this weekend; rumor has it he was trying to flee his compound after a blow out fight with his wife over a National Enquirer story that he cheated on her with New Yorker Rachel Uchitel (she has denied the claim). According to TMZ, cops believe that Elin attacked her hubby and hope to prove it with some actual evidence.
Authorities have been turned away three different times while attempting to interview the famous family at their Florida home. Tiger did finally release a statement yesterday, but it does little to clarify what actually went down last week. He says:
“As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again. This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible. The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false. This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.”
