Former Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel is threatening to sue the NY Post about a 9/11 story stating that she is happy that her fiance was dead after the Twin Towers collapsed.
Uchitel threatens to sue the NY Post for publishing a 9/11 quote that she says was taken out of context. The editors, from Page Six Magazine article, said the man she intended to marry, James Andrew O’Grady, was meant to die “because he was too good.”
In The Post on Thursday the story read, “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.” Had O’Grady lived, Uchitel, who went on to make $500,000 a year working as a VIP hostess, believes her life would have been much different. “I would be a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Point, LI,” she tells the magazine.
However, Uchitel says she was “grossly misquoted.” She said losing her fiance was the “worst thing that ever happened to me” and that she would have been lucky to live in Long Island as his wife.
“It felt awful to see my words misconstrued like that, and the worst part is that the Post just went and made this about me, instead of making this about the tragedy of Sept. 11,” Uchitel said in a statement on Tuesday.
“It’s evil and it’s awful and it’s disgusting. The Post clearly wants people to hate me. If someone is talking about 9/11 and its victims like that, they shouldn’t give that person a voice. I’m speechless,” she added.
Uchitel wants the NY Post to retract the story, or she will sue. “I really hope this gets cleared up so people won’t believe what the Post printed,” she said.
