Tonight, Tiger Woods' former mistress Rachel Uchitel talks to E! NEWS about Tiger, David Boreanaz, Donald Trump, and Celebrity Rehab.
Here are some excerpts from her interview.
"I am different than the cartoon character that people have made me out to be. I am just a normal girl. Like anybody you would know. I am absolutely not the wicked witch that people have made me out to be. It's hurtful. I am human. You know that is a hurtful thing to have people talk about you all the time…There are a lot of things that I think people don't know because nobody has ever asked really."
Uchitel on Celebrity Rehab:
"I'll tell you why I did the show. I did the show because it was my only opportunity to have the world understand me and where I came from and what I was feeling. As you know…I was offered a spot on "Celebrity Apprentice" and I chose to do "Celebrity Rehab" instead, because I felt like it gave me an opportunity to have the world know who I was and to see me work out the issues that I had in the past and hopefully move away from them."
Uchitel on Donald Trump:
"I was really surprised that Donald Trump would come out and make whatever remarks he made. You know, I thought that was really unfair."
Uchitel on David Boreanaz:
"I did know that David was married, but I also know the kind of relationship that David was in. Again, I don't want to hurt him, I don't want to get into this because David doesn't need to be involved in any more issues and I wish him the best…Unfortunately, what comes out to the press later isn't the whole story, but I choose not to talk about it because I don't want to hurt him. I don't want to hurt his wife…"
Uchitel on what she's up to now:
"The reality of my life is pretty funny and interesting. I'm dating on Match.com; I'm studying to be a private investigator, you know, it's sort of random. It could make a good show, but I'm not sure what will happen there."
And more from Uchitel:
"I think that watching "Celebrity Rehab" will help people move past the image that they have of me. I hope it will. If it doesn't, then that's OK. And that's fair. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a chance to be heard out. Doing "Celebrity Rehab" was my chance to be heard out."
Speaking up about issues and not keeping it all bottled in is certainly healthy, so we commend Rachel for that.
We think she's still got quite the road ahead of herself before the majority of people change their views on her, but she does seem to be making the right moves. We give her credit for that.
