Yesterday, we reported that Tiger Woods put the kibosh on Rachel Uchitel's potential Playboy spread, with the threat of losing her settlement from him forcing her to bow out. Well, the mag supposedly asked again, and this time Rache nixed it.
Why, you ask?
"Rachel had started to date a new man, and she was embarrassed to go ahead with the spread, because she was afraid that it would upset him," says a source.
Umm, is this mystery dude not dating Rachel Uchitel? A woman only rich and famous because of boning Tiger Woods and David Boreanaz? Playboy would bug him?
Apparently. "The magazine came back to Rachel with another generous offer to appear in Playboy," said a source close to the pilgrim of celebrity mistresses."She didn't even tell the guy at the time, but felt uncomfortable, because she believed it would have been detrimental to a relationship that she would rather pursue than being on the cover of a men's magazine naked."
That's remarkably ... mature. Who is this chick and what has she done with Rachel Uchitel? "I'd rather give this guy a shot," she said, supposedly.
Even though the romance didn't last and with the interest in a topless spread still high, Uchitel "doesn't feel like it's appropriate for her to do it."
Yeah, right. She probably just thinks $300,000 is too low. Or she wants the golfer back someday and doesn't want to tarnish her pristine image.
