Rachel Uchitel cancels press conference

Dec 3, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

Seems a shame to pay all that money for pit bull-like lawyer Gloria Allred and then not use her, but Rachel Uchitel has canceled a press conference scheduled for today, in which she was going to discuss the Tiger Woods situation. Late Wednesday, TMZ was reporting that Uchitel had reversed field, and was going to admit that she and Tiger indeed had an affair; and that in fact it was a text messaging session between the two that set off the confrontation with wife Elin Nordegren on the morning of Tiger’s car accident.
The press conference was to be today at 11:30 a.m., PT. Now my Rachel Uchitel press conference party is ruined. What am I going to do with all these finger sandwiches?

Uchitel of course is Tiger Lady No. 1 — the first alleged mistress linked to the golf star via a story in the National Enquirer last week (although it seems like last year). Allred’s statement today:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the news conference scheduled for today is canceled. There will be no further statements on this matter.”

Not saying that anyone got paid off here, but take from that what you will. From TMZ on Wednesday:

Sources say less than an hour before Tiger’s accident, Rachel and Tiger were texting each other. Elin confronted Tiger and asked whom he was texting. She grabbed the phone and we’re told she called Rachel to confront her. According to sources, Tiger and Elin began arguing and the phone broke in the process.

We’re also told there was damage as a result of the altercation in the vestibule area of Tiger’s home — damage that cannot be easily repaired, and that is why Tiger would not let police come in.

The Chinese simulation was right!

    If this ‘new’ story that has come out about Eldrick “Tiger” Woods and Rachel Uchitel is ‘true’.., Tiger might be in more trouble than what we thought. Talking or texting and paying a participate ‘not’ to talk or have a ‘news conference’ is tampering with evidence and is considered a ‘cover-up’ by law. A serious offense. If things keep going like they are, even Gloria Allred would have to testify in court concerning a ‘cover-up’ and exchange of money or promise thereof.. The ‘phone’ call last week, including texting to the cocktail waitress and reality show participate concerning changing her phone answering and storage of said conversation is considered a ‘cover-up’ by law, also. Tiger, I don’t know where you are getting your ‘legal’ advice from or public relations.., but, it sounds like someone is ‘not’ listening or is foolish. Its time to sit back and say to yourself, wife, family, friends and loyal fans.., what have I done.. Its better to tell the ‘truth’ now, before more people come out of the woodwork. This is ‘not’ the time to dig a bigger hole. I wish you and your wife, family, friends and fans the best. Mike in Montana

    excuse me, Tiger woods is the one who sought out the public spotlight. He signed on as a spokesman for huge companies, saying, hey we should buy this stuff because of “ME”. Well, we want to know who “ME” really is.

    I blame Tigers dad for pushing him relentlessly. Sure he made him successful, but Tiger never had a chance to be a kid and sow his wild oats. He never got to jump on a motorcycle and ride cross country. he never got to take wild trips on spring break. He never had the opportunity to rent an apartment on the beach with his buddies for the summer. I suspect he is living out some of that missed opportunity.

    Is prostitution illegal in America? Low class is, but high class is not? Maybe someone can shed some light here.

    Tiger Woods played the role of a devout family man. He demanded that the press leave him alone, while he was off the golf course, so he might enjoy his wonderful marriage in blissful solitude.
    He conned most of the World into thinking he was a real professional, a dedicated perfectionist. Millions of people idolized Tiger Woods, he was a true hero to his fans.
    Should he be held to account for his actions? Some say no! Its his business. Well I’m 75 years old and can attest to one fact; any man who pledges his troth to one woman, and them flies around the World acting like a two pistoled billy goat, in a vast herd of virgin nannies, has a decided lack of character.
    Tiger has been acting like some loud mouthed teenager, who thinks he is ten foot tall and bullet proof. He obviously has actually thought that he could play and play and would never have to pay. Most teenagers eventually get a thumping that drastically adjusts their confidences. Tiger is due an adjustment.
    Gulf is a game that demands great skill and confidences. Don’t be surprised if Tiger has a problem getting back on his game.
