Rachel Uchitel Lawyers Up, N.Y. Post Stands By 9/11 Quotes

by at . Comments

Rachel Uchitel is preparing to file suit against the New York Post for quotes about her dead fiance she says she didn't make that ran in Page Six Magazine.

The paper is standing by its story, however.

Uchitel hired Daniel Horowitz and Marty Garbus (known for repping Oksana Grigorieva) to sue the Post for insinuating she's glad her fiance died during 9/11.

An article in the Post's Page Six Magazine includes alleged statements from Rachel such as "I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good."

"I'm glad I didn't get to see any flaws that time brings on everyone. I would [have become] a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Port, Long Island."

In a letter to the Post, Horowitz claims the story conveys "a disastrously false impression" of Rachel and is "degrading and extraordinarily inaccurate."

Rachel Uchitel says it's a hit piece and the reporter went in not liking her.

Horowitz also has words for the author of the piece:"You created a work of miserable and demeaning fiction.  You should be ashamed of yourself."

Horowitz wants an apology to Rachel, and wants the "false words" withdrawn, although he is not specific as to how they would be withdrawn.

The full story is supposed to come out tomorrow. The New York Post, when contacted by TMZ, said through a rep, "We stand by our story."
