Rachel Uchitel Talks Tiger Affair

The woman whose text messages started the bizarre chain of events that ended with Tiger Woods crashing his SUV into a tree in the middle of the night is finally speaking out about her involvement with the fallen golf star. Rachel Uchitel was a nightclub hostess when she met Woods, but before that she worked as a Bloomberg News producer and was engaged to an investment banker. When her fiance was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Uchitel's life spun out of control. "If things had been different and 9/11 had never happened, my life would have taken a different course," she said. "I'd be fat and happy, living in a big house in Long Island with a load of kids."
