"I want you to lay next to me, on me, wherever you want to lay. F***! Why didn’t we find each other years ago. We wouldn’t be having this conversation.” - Tiger Woods
As a night club promoter and serial adulterer, Rachel Uchitel is no stranger to celebrity. But she says her affair with Tiger Woods was more than just a fling.
"In every story, you need a villain and a hero," she told OK! in an interview. "I’ve been characterized as the villain. People have called me a home wrecker."
"I make mistakes, but I’m not a tramp, a gold digger, or a whore. I have good qualities. When you’re judged by the nation, it’s really difficult. It’s horrible."
Woods clearly believed his marriage was a sham - he told some of his many mistresses as much - but Uchitel apparently meant more to him than the rest.
The topic of Tiger's relationship with Rachel was what sent his wife Elin through the roof. According to various reports, he said he was in love with Rachel.
“Tiger told her he would divorce his wife for her,” an insider says, adding that Tiger Woods "desperately wanted to leave Elin and their kids to be with her."
Did Tiger Woods plan on leaving Elin for Rachel Uchitel?
In an e-mail obtained by In Touch Weekly, he gushed, “I know it’s brutal on you that you can’t be with me all the time. I get it. It f***ing kills me, too."
The golf great continued: "I finally found someone I connect with, someone I have never found. Not even at home. You want someone to witness your life."
After Rachel Uchitel replied and complained that she didn’t feel like hashing out the relationship over email, a solemn Tiger wrote back, “You don’t have to answer that e-mail. I just wanted you to know what’s going on inside me.”
BARF! This was before Tiger and Rachel got into a fight after he questioned her motives and accused her of sleeping with him because he was famous.
“I don’t know if this is going to work,” he said. “I thought I was getting to know you, but it feels like I’m just another guy who happens to be famous."
"Some parts of your past really get to me," Woods wrote of his lover's previous flings with David Boreanaz and Derek Jeter. "I don’t know what person I was falling for so hard. The one I got to know, or the one who likes famous people."
"I am so confused."
Needless to say, so are we, Tiger. Over how we misjudged you so badly for the last dozen years. We hope it was all worth it. Sleaze.
