Before she hit the headlines as Tiger Woods’ alleged main mistress, Rachel Uchitel was seen in the news because of a 9/11 photo. The snapshot depicted her grieving over her fiancé, investment banker James Andrew O’Grady, who died in the terrorist attacks.
With the 10th anniversary of the tragedy looming, Page Six Magazine interviewed Uchitel, and the resulting story produced some alleged stunning statements.
The former “Celebrity Rehab” star is claiming her quotes were taken out of context, reports TMZ, and she says she’s considering suing the magazine.
In the New York Post, Page Six Magazine reported that Uchitel said of her former love: “I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good...I’m almost happy it ended the way it did because I’ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced.”
According to the interview, Uchitel went on to say that had her fiancé lived, “I would be a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Point, Long Island."
Uchitel tells TMZ she’s angry over the implication that she’s glad O'Grady is dead. "I would have loved nothing more than to be Andy's housewife," she says, adding that was what she was really trying to get across to Page Six.
A rep for the New York Post told CNN, “We stand by our story.”
