Tiger Woods' Mistress Rachel Uchitel Pleads: I'm No Whore

Tiger Wood’s alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel,  still hoping for a shot at redemption, makes her case that she’s no whore as the first anniversary of the golfer’s sex scandal draws near.

Uchitel insists she’s a regular girl who wants a home and family. One thing is certain, her road to Tiger’s bed is long and twisting.

With the one-year anniversary of Woods’ car crash, which triggered the scandal, fast approaching on Nov. 25, Uchitel is sure to come under media scrutiny again.

Her alleged affair exposed by the National Enquirer, led to a confrontation between Woods and his then-wife Elin Nordegren, and the unraveling of his secret sex life.

Uchitel, who claims to have had an eight-month affair with the golfer, turned out to be just one of more than a dozen women — cocktail waitresses, hostess, party girls, hookers and porn stars — who were bedded by Woods during his marriage.

In the year since the scandal broke, Woods and Nordegren have divorced; Woods has returned to the professional golf tour and his varied mistresses have faded into the woodwork.

All, that is, except Uchitel, who has continued to pursue celebrity anywhere she can find it.

In a wide-ranging interview with London’s Daily Mail, she is described as a woman “reviled as little better than a prostitute, or at best a gold-digging marriage-wrecker.”

But Rachel insists she was in a “serious relationship” with Woods, whom she describes as a “soul mate.”

“People have called me all sorts of names, but they don’t know me. I am not the same as the other girls and I never ever imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be caught up in a scandal like this,” she tells the newspaper.

She’s bought heavily into the Hollywood lifestyle that reflects the many conflicts in her life.

Rachel is described as tiny with bulbous artificial breasts, plumped-up lips and a body “kept whippet-thin with daily two-hour sessions in the gym.”

Yet, she chain smokes.

“She’s clearly obsessed by her weight and constantly asks me if she looks fat,” the writer notes in an aside.

She’ll be back in the spotlight in more ways than one.

Beside the scandal’s anniversary, she’s set to appear in the new season of reality show “Celebrity Rehab.”

She turned up on the show after being rejected by “Dancing With the Stars” and “Celebrity Apprentice.”

She says she is addicted to prescription pills and love. “Women will understand,” she says.

Uchitel says she’s not in it for the money. She has family money, she says, and reportedly received a seven-figure payment from Woods to maintain her silence.

“I have always been looking for the perfect man. I wanted a man who would marry me, give me the house and children I long for. I plunged headfirst into relationships which I should never have been in,” she says.

“Yes, of course,” she says, when asked if she regrets sleeping with a married man. “I will never, ever do that again.”
