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!
