Rachel Uchitel says she's no Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren homewrecker

Rachel Uchitel

Whatever’s going on in the Tiger Woods home following Friday’s bizarre car wreck news and domestic squabbling rumors, Rachel Uchitel wants people to know it has nothing to do with her.

Uchitel, a party maven and New Yorkista first hit the tabloids in 2001, of all things, tearfully mourning her fiance, Andy O’Grady, but became a much bigger page presence this week in the National Enquirer, which reported Woods was stepping out with her.

But the socialite told the New York Post that she has no relationship with the golf great, though she understands where the wife rage comes from:

“Despite it being completely untrue, it still must have certainly caused some problems at home – if I was his wife, I probably would have killed him.

“This is nothing to do with me. We have never had an affair, and the claims we did are completely false. We have never had an affair, talked on the phone or sent any type of text, sexy or not.

“I am really upset about it because I am being portrayed as a homewrecker, when it simply isn’t true.”

And with the Woods turning cops away twice on Saturday as authorities sought to find some answers – and the promise of 911 audio tapes to be released Sunday – the intrigue continues to swirl.
