LONDON - Tiger Woods’ ex-mistress Rachel Uchitel had an emotional meltdown on reality TV show ‘Celebrity Rehab’ as she worried about her reputation.
The former nightclub hostess sobbed as she received a phone call telling her she was being “lynched in the press” for appearing on the show.
Four days after checking into rehab her representative called to tell her to leave the show to save face.
Uchitel had sought help for addiction to sleeping tablets, while the show’s host Dr Drew Pinsky also diagnosed her as a “love addict.”
Uchitel almost left the show early when an assistant contacted her and revealed the outside world had learned she was in treatment.
One of the stories at the time was that Donald Trump had rescinded his offer for Uchitel to appear on the U.S. version of The Celebrity Apprentice.
“She called me to say, “Rachel I need you to know something, you are being lynched in the press and I’m telling you it’s not good for you to do this you need to leave,” the Daily Mail quoted Uchitel as saying.
“I was very hesitant to come and do it to begin with. But this stuff is helping me so I would prefer to stay.
“If I left here I have nobody to go back to. Everybody has turned their back on me,” she added. (ANI)
