If you’re interested in a career as an entertainment correspondent, maybe you should question whether it’s worth the time and effort to get a graduate degree in mass media. After all, if Ashlee Dupree and Rachel Uchitel are any indication, all you need to do to land a job in entertainment is to nail a high profile married guy and be available for interviews afterwards. If that fails, you can always fall back on the hobby music career you’ve just generated so much publicity for.
Tiger Woods’ first known mistress, Rachel Uchitel, has just been given a job on Extra! as a “special correspondent” reporting on clubs and celebrity “hot spots.” Uchitel appeared on the tabloid show yesterday in an interview with Mario Lopez. Judging from the clips available online, (below) Uchitel didn’t talk about her affair with married golf philanderer Tiger Woods. She just discussed her past and how she’s looking for the right man. (In the clip below, she refers to her then-fiance, who died in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11.) Just like Rachel charmed the pants off Tiger Woods, she also charmed producers into offering her a more permanent position.
Tiger Woods’ “mistress No. 1,” Rachel Uchitel, has landed a TV job on “Extra.” Uchitel, who was interviewed last night by the show’s Mario Lopez, “so impressed producers that she’s been offered a job as a special correspondent,” a rep told us. We’re told she’ll report for “Extra” on nightlife “hot spots.” A show source added, “She won’t talk about Tiger, but she talks about how she wants to find a husband and have kids. She only has a few real friends left whom she trusts. She is alone a lot and spends time with her two dogs. She seems very vulnerable.”

There Rachel goes again, leaking stories to the press in an attempt to make herself look good. The interview with Extra! was like part job interview and part therapy session. This woman is still working the media to her advantage. She’s been sued by an ex employer and described as a “drama queen” and a “firestarter.” She was working as a party promoter wrangling celebrities for clubs when she met Tiger and now she’s trying to present herself as this wholesome single gal looking for a good man. Why doesn’t she just find another rich married guy to dupe? Television must pay better in this rough economy. It’s a shame the Wall St. types are spending all their discretionary income on their families.
