Rachel Uchitel was the first mistress to be linked to the married Tiger Woods, and the one whose romance with him led to his car crash November 27.

After Woods wrecked his car, his reputation followed suit. Thanks, Jaimee Grubbs, Kalika Moquin, Jamie Jungers, Mindy Lawton and maybe Cori Rist!

Rachel Uchitel and Husband

But it was Uchitel whose relationship with Woods was deemed the most dangerous by the golfer's camp - and that's why he decided to pay her off.

Rachel was about to hold a press conference last week when she pulled the plug at the last minute after a secret phone call with Tiger Woods' reps.

Tiger's camp believed she had leaked the story of their affair, but on the phone, Uchitel convinced Tiger she had nothing to do with the publication.

He believed her, but also believed that in hiring attorney Gloria Allred, Uchitel was going to cash in now or later. Tiger decided to buy her discretion.

Reports suggest Rachel Uchitel got at least $1 million from Tiger Woods.

Tiger felt it was important to silence Rachel Uchitel more than any other woman because his relationship with her was current and the most intense.

Woods knew there would be little doubt about the intensity of their relationship if the "hundreds" of explicit texts and emails he sent became public.

Fortunately for us, before the affair was exposed, she showed a friend an email Tiger wrote about having crazy Ambien sex and threesome dreams.

If that's any indication of what their relationship consisted of, there's no telling what we don't know. And that's why Woods wanted her to shut her yap.

Despite advice from some people in his camp who didn't want to give in to Glorida Allred or pay Uchitel, Tiger took control and made the call to pay her.

Now, we will never know what happened and he can begin rebuilding his images. Well, except for the fact that he's got five other mistress and counting.

In the aftermath of Alexa Ray Joel's drug overdose and hospitalization Saturday, sources say that the singer may have been upset over a boyfriend.

According to a source, she took Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, and "She became worried about breathing, which is why 911 was called."

It has been rumored that Alexa's overdose was a suicide attempt, but that has not been confirmed. An accidental overdose is still a possibility.

Adds another source close to the situation who was quoted by People: "She was apparently distraught over an argument with her boyfriend."

The singer has been released from the hospital and her father Billy Joel is now with her. Emotional highs and lows are not new to the singer.

Fortunately, Alexa Ray Joel is alright.

She recently posted on MySpace: "Is anybody else finding it a difficult "dating world" out there? I'm so terrible at dating – I don't know if I'll ever get used to it!"

"And I HATE the game-playing! I live in the greatest city in the world and I can't seem to meet an interesting guy who also happens to be NICE. Go figure... "

Alexa Ray Joel even admitted last year that, like her father, "I can get very dark. I can get very in my own head and depressed as many other artists can."

Her mom is Billy's ex-wife, Christie Brinkley. Hopefully she gets the help she needs, regardless of what happened Saturday, so it doesn't happen again.

Free Britney!

That's what lawyers and others connected with the Britney Spears conservatorship case are saying as they work toward the goal of ending the control her dad, Jamie, has had over her personal and professional decisions since early 2008.

But can - and more importantly should - Britney be freed?

Jamie Spears wants to wait until her tour ended before making any such move, and even then, he wants to do it only when and if the time is right.

There have been several lengthy meetings recently between Spears' lawyers and the court commissioner in the commissioner's chambers recently.

  • The Conservator
  • Lucky Jayden

Jamie and the lawyers will not and cannot make a binding decision to end the Britney conservatorship. They will weigh in, but the individual with all the influence is the "capacity expert" - a psychiatrist who was appointed by the court.

The capacity expert will do a thorough evaluation of Britney Spears psychologically and of the case in general and submit it to the commissioner.

We're told one of the fears Jamie has ... Sam Lutfi, who he thinks is still a threat to Britney if she lets him back in her life. He's got that right.

There are actually two conservatorships, or two components to Jamie's control. He runs Britney Spears the person and Britney, the cash cow.

The business conservatorship will likely continue indefinitely. The issue on the table is whether to end the conservatorship over Britney herself.

Should Britney Spears be allowed to roam free? Or is the risk of a return to her past pink-wigged, British-accent, no-pants self just too great?

There's a big episode of Gossip Girl on tonight.

The hit CW show creates more buzz and has more devoted fans (albeit a relatively small number of them) than just about any other show out there, so there was already talk of a spinoff last year. Now, that talk has resurfaced.

No flashing back to the '80s is on tap this time, though. On Saturday Night Live this weekend, the cast parodied Gossip Girl ... only without the sophistication.

Get ready for Gossip Girl: Staten Island!

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively handled hosting duties for the night, and appears in this parody as a girl from the S.I. Ferry who, well, let's just say she's trashy.

This might be very offensive to people who actually live on Staten Island, or non-snobs overall, but Jersey Shore is way worse. And is actually a real show.

In an interview, just-fired Notre Dame football Charlie Weis appeared to suggest that his USC, counterpart, Pete Carroll was living with a grad student.

Weis says his remarks were taken out of context, but after the Tiger Woods scandal, the married Carroll was promptly put under a media microscope.

Here's how it went down. In a Q & A with Rivals.com, Weis was asked to compare the way he was portrayed in the news media to the way Carroll is.

There is no more beloved figure in Southern California than Carroll, whereas Charlie felt he could do no right with the press and scrutiny in South Bend.

Weis was asked how he felt about the way the media treats him at Notre Dame compared to how a coach like Carroll is treated. His response was:

Did Charlie Weis just out Pete Carroll's grad student affair?

"Let me ask you this: You guys know about things that go on in different places. Was I living with a grad student in Malibu, or was I living with my wife in my house? You could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news. [Carroll] doing it in Malibu and it’s not national news. What’s the difference? I don’t understand. Why is it okay for one guy to do things like that, but for me, I’m scrutinized when I swear. I’m sorry for swearing; absolve my sins."

Carroll, a married father of three, strongly denied Weis' allegation.

“It’s untrue, it’s irresponsible, and it’s incredible he’d be talking about me like that,” a far-from-pleased Carroll said, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Weis later said he was being "totally subjective" in a conversation with several reporters that was an aside to the formal interview he was conducting.

He said he was speaking about rumors and how they adversely affect lives of coaches and families, and merely meant that if Pete Carroll were secretly dating a graduate student, he wouldn't be as scrutinized for it because of his success.

Weis says he has left a message for Carroll and will do anything to "run Pete down and apologize" if the quote caused any offense to the USC coach.

In previous Saturday Night Live Digital Shorts, Andy Samberg has dueted with Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, T-Pain and even Reba McEntire (er, sort of).

Last night's effort, in which the SNL comedy prince teamed up with musical guest Rihanna, will never be placed in the same league as those past efforts.

Nevertheless, it's pretty funny, in spite of (or because) the fact that it makes absolutely zero sense and may have been conceptualized by a five-year-old.

The premise, if you can call it that: Rihanna and Andy, as "Shy Ronnie," sing for a bunch of young kids in school. Only Ronnie is, well, too shy to perform.

It's worth watching if only for Rihanna singing her advice to him ...

"He wanted to spank me and pull my hair as we had sex. He liked me to talk dirty, but the hair-pulling really turned him on." - Mindy Lawton on Tiger Woods

It's hard to believe this is what Tiger Woods news has come to. Just two weeks ago, he had the cleanest image of anyone. Now he has five rumored mistresses.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Sure, you can doubt the credibility of Mindy Lawton, the fifth woman tied to Tiger Woods, and who boasts about it in the UK's News of the World this morning.

But do you? At least three of his first four mistresses have been semi-confirmed, and his reputation is so shot by this point, he gets no benefit of the doubt.

According to waitress Lawton, Tiger had an affair with her while his model wife Elin Nordegren was pregnant.

Oh, and the world's #1 golfer liked playing in the rough!

"Sometimes I looked like a rag doll after we'd made love," she reflected on Tiger Woods' prolific performance in the sack. "He really did like it quite rough."

Sadly, Mindy Lawton soon learned Tiger only wanted one thing from her.

"I realize now all he wanted me for was sex. The only time he would call was when he wanted it," she said. "Tiger just used me as a sex toy. I thought I meant something to him, but all he cared about was lust. He is a selfish, heartless man."

"All Tiger cared about was getting me into bed. He had an urge and I satisfied it. There was very little if any emotion from his side although I fell for him."

In her tell-all interview, Mindy described how Tiger Woods:

  • Demanded instant, urgent sex when they met up.
  • Nailed her all over his mansion and even in a parking lot.
  • Sent explicit text messages prior to their sex sessions.
  • Urged her to wear sexy red lingerie (his favorite)!
  • Took Elin Nordegren to the restaurant where Mindy works.

Tiger and Elin are renegotiating a prenup and going through marriage counseling after a series of affairs came to light after his mysterious car crash last week.

Rachel Uchitel was the first woman to be linked to Tiger Woods, followed by the likes of Jaimee Grubbs, Kalika Moquin and just yesterday, Jamie Jungers.

Cori Rist is also rumored to have had an affair with him.

It's no longer a matter of whether there is another Tiger Woods girlfriend lurking out there, but who - and how many women on the side he had.

The latest rumored Tiger fling? Cori Rist. The New York Daily News is linking Woods to the "delicious blond," who won't confirm or deny reports.

The story fits his M.O.: it's said that Woods met Rist, a New Yorker who is a regular at some of Manhattan's better clubs, at Butter last year.

"They went on to another party," says an insider. "One thing led to another and, pretty soon, Tiger was flying her to hook up with him on tour."

"Tiger would typically get a large suite at a hotel. Someone would book Cori an adjacent room, so she wouldn't be seen coming into his room."

Sources say Cori Rist found the intrigue fun.

"He would get the presidential suite," says the same source. "It was the ultimate in luxury. The trouble is, he never wanted to leave the room."

JOIN THE CLUB: Cori Rist is the latest woman to be linked to Tiger Woods.

A longtime buddy, someone Tiger Woods trusted, recalls the star introducing him to Rist: "I remember she was quite attractive," says the pal.

After about six months of sneaking around, though, "[Cori Rist] started to get tired of being cooped up. She felt like a bird in a gilded cage."

When the newspaper ran all of these claims past Rist, who lives in a posh pad on the East Side, she said simply "No comment at this time."

Maybe she just doesn't want to be sucked into the media storm ... or maybe she's exploring her options like some of Tiger's other ladies.

He paid off Rachel Uchitel, according to Radar, while Jaimee Grubbs has already sold her story (and pics, and voicemail) to the highest bidder.

Kalika Moquin has also been linked to Tiger Woods, as has Jamie Jungers, the fourth mistress to come forward to the press as of yesterday.

How many more than there be? According to reports, possibly 4-5 more ... at least. And you know some are actually telling the truth too.

As we reported a few hours ago, a fourth Tiger Woods mistress, Jamie Jungers, has come forward with her story of sleeping with the living golf legend.

The World #1, who apparently led a sex-crazed double life, had been ­married just nine months when he seduced Jungers at a Las Vegas party in 2005.

Tiger Woods on the Course

Over the next 18 months, Jamie Jungers met Tiger for sex in his California residence surrounded by wedding ­pictures of Woods and Elin Nordegren.

The revelation comes as sources in Las Vegas suggest that the disgraced icon may have had ongoing flings with four additional women in Sin City.

TMZ reports that another former lover of his in Orlando is getting ready to come forward as well, which would make nine Tiger Woods mistresses in all.

Guess you could say he played nine holes! [crickets]

As for Jamie Jungers, she met Tiger Woods at a party at the Bellagio Hotel. He sent across a messenger to ask her to join him and his entourage.

They totally had sex that night.

But Tiger wasn't the only adulterous sleaze that night. Jamie was ­cheating on her own fiancé, ­businessman Derek Schmidt, "a massive Tiger fan."

"I had Tiger Woods memorabilia all over my house and I even collected Tiger Woods videos," Schmidt told the Mirror (UK). “Oddly, on the night Jamie met him for the first time, I had just bought the new Tiger Woods computer game."

Schmidt said his fiancee admitted meeting Woods that night in Vegas but insisted nothing was going on. He later found out otherwise, however.

Billy Joel's 23-year-old daughter with Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, is in stable condition after being transported to a New York hospital just a few hours ago.

According to sources close to the situation, authorities arrived to Alexa's Manhattan apartment after a 911 call alerted them to Alexa having trouble breathing.

A female caller told a dispatcher she had "taken pills" and "wanted to die." Paramedics found her having difficulty breathing, but got her medical attention.

A source with knowledge of the situation says: “There was an indication the call came from Alexa’s roommate, but it could've been Alexa Ray Joel herself."

The singer is "conscious" and expected to recover.

Investigators at the NYPD’s Sixth Precient say a drug overdose or even an attempted suicide have not been ruled out, but there is nothing confirmed as of yet.

Rumors suggest she may have been struggling with her parents' respective divorces over the past year and a half as well as other personal problems.

Here's wishing Alexa a speedy recovery.
