Rachel Uchitel -- the woman rumored to be the catalyst behind Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren's Thanksgiving-night mystery dust-up
-- is no stranger to the limelight.
Tragically, Uchitel's first appearance in the public eye came after 9/11, when the buxom then-blonde was pictured on the front page of the New York Post
grieving for her fiance James Andrew O'Grady, who perished in the attack on the Twin Towers. After suffering a "massive breakdown" as result of her loss, Uchitel married a childhood friend in a ceremony that was featured prominently in the vows section of The New York Times
. It was a union that quickly ended in divorce.
Uchitel, whose grandparents owned the El Morocco nightclub
, entered into the family business a few years ago, becoming a high profile "party promoter" -- one who had a reputation for dating her famous clients. "Although I've been romantically linked to a famous baseball player, a Broadway star, a musician and various film and television actors, I will never kiss and tell!" she coyly told BlackBook magazine
One of these anonymous television actors may be married "Bones" star David Boreanaz, whom tabloids linked to Uchitel
last month. With the National Enquirer standing firm on its report that Uchitel is also Tiger Woods' mistress
, the (financial) incentive for the social-climbing 34-year-old to break her personal code and kiss and tell will likely never be higher.
