Rachel Uchitel denies Tiger Woods affair.

Rachel Uchitel who has been widely named as "the other woman" in alleged affair with Tiger Woods has come out to emphatically deny any such relationship.

She admits she's met Woods on a number of occasions, but told the New York Post she was "very concerned" to hear about the smash-up.

"God forbid Tiger got into a car wreck because of this false report of him having an affair, Despite it being completely untrue, it still must have certainly caused some problems at home -- if I was his wife, I probably would have killed him," Uchitel said.

She went on to defend herself saying "this is nothing to do with me. We have never had an affair, and the claims we did are completely false. We have never had an affair, talked on the phone or sent any type of text, sexy or not.

"I'm really upset about it because I'm being portrayed as a home-wrecker, when it simply isn't true."

Who is Rachel Uchitel?

Today's Newspapers are full of reports that golf billionaire Tiger Woods was involved in an car accident on late Friday night at about 2:30am.

There are a number of different reports on the accident in the newspapers and as well as statements from police including one making clear that no alcohol was involved.

An accident at 2.30 am for a man with an extremely clean cut reputation seems odd, is there more to it that might be obvious.

Some newspaper reports have suggested an argument between Tiger Woods and his wife, former Swedish model, Elin Nordegren may have triggered the accidents, while at least one paper has gone further to name one Rachel Uchitel in connection with the argument.

The UK Sun reported on its website on Saturday morning:

Sources said Tiger and beauty Elin had been arguing before the accident.

Reports in the US claim he has been cheating on her with party hostess Rachel Uchitel, 34.

Rachel is said to have followed Tiger around the world.

She was photographed at the same hotel where Tiger was staying while playing in the Australian Open.

Lawyers for the golfer have denied the allegations.

The Sun

TMZ the celebrity website that has built its reputation on celebrity scoops reports on the accident, and also alleges a woman was involved but does not name anyone.

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up.

We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.


So who is Rachel Uchitel?

The earliest press mentions of her date back to 9/11 when she suffered the tragic loss of her finance James Andrew O'Grady, 32, an investment banker who for worked Sandler O'Neill & Partners in the Twin Towers.

The pair had just returned from a 10-day vacation in Greece before the tragedy and were due to wed the following May.

A few years later there are press reports that she found love again in the arms of Steven Ehrenkranz. Steven also an Investment Banker who had himself narrowly escaped the tragedy of 9/11, and had recognized a Rachel an old school friend in a photo on the cover of The New York Post reporting on her search for her fiance.

They met later at a mutual friend's Halloween party and eventually married in November, 2004. A society wedding in the Deco splendor of the new Cipriani event space in the Toy Building in New York.

Sadly it was not too last, and Rachel moved on from the marriage and also from New York. She moved to Las Vegas where she set up in Nightclub and hospitality management and it seems made quite a success of it.

After the successful stint in Vegas she returned back to New York. In an interview with the Black Bookmark, an online resource for creatives she reveals how she achieved success in Southampton ("aka the Hamptons"), Long Island's ultra-trendy, ultra-rich enclave. (Pictures of her in the Hapmtons)

“I’m currently director of VIP operations for Pink Elephant in Southampton. I spend my weekends at the beach with the two loves of my life—Ozzy Osbourne and Rudy Giuliani—my affenpinscher and brussels griffin. I’m back in the city during the week.

In the Hamptons, I’m obsessed with Nello, Lily Pond (where the cutest guy in New York works, who I am crushing on), and of course Pink Elephant. I own a Turnberry apartment in Vegas. I love going there for long weekends when it’s not too hot out. I love Saint-Tropez and spend a few weeks there every year. The Four Seasons in Thailand (Chiang Mai) is my favorite place in the world.”

She also sheds some light on her love life.

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!

Rumours have also circulated about an affair with a married TV star but nothing has been confirmed

Katie Price quits Jungle, dumps Alex Reid

Things haven't turned out for Katie Price in the way she would have expected. Her stint on the reality TV show "I Am A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" (IAACGMOOH) has turned into a disaster and it seems forced her to come to the conclusion that her high profile relationship with Alex Reid was going nowhere.

It was also so different when a few days ago Price jetted into Australia to star in IAACGMOOH after having had her botox topped up in Los Angeles. She was keen to rekindle the popularity she enjoyed during the her last stint on the show in 2004 where she met her ex-husband Peter Andre.

She was sadly mistaken, the British public it seemed where not in a forgiving mood and had clearly taken the side of her ex Peter Andre in their somewhat bitter separation and it showed. Price was voted day after day by the public to take part in a series of humiliating tasks, eventually after her sixth nomination she had enough and walked off the show.

As if that was not enough drama, she announced in an interview with show hosts Ant and Dec, that she had split with Alex Reid because she wants to be single. Not good for Alex as reports had it he was on his way to Australia to propose to her.

Say what you like about Katie Price, but you can't say she does not know how to grab tabloid headlines.

Twi-Hards and the Twilight movie phenomenon

If you are of a certain age it is entirely possible the words “Twilight”, “Twi-Hards”, “Bella Swan”, “Edward Cullen”, “New Moon” or the actors Kristen Steward and Robert Pattison mean little or nothing to you but for millions of fans of the Twilight film franchise these represent the hottest movie franchise in years.

Twilight is part of the recent wave of Vampire romantic fantasy films and TV shows that have hit the screens along with TV hits True Blood and The Vampire Diaries.
The common theme they all have is the Vampires are no longer just sullen dark brooding evil creatures, but rather come blessed with striking “boy next door “ looks and just want to be loved by the women of their dreams.

This appeals to the perennial desire of many a young woman to tame a bad boy, to heal his hurts, to staunch his emotional wounds and it is this dangerous but cute theme that has pulled in millions of adoring teenage and early twenties mainly female fans and propelled this genre to the hottest trend in Hollywood.

The first Twilight movie start Robert Pattison as the incredibly handsome but aloof Edward Cullen a 108 year old Vampire who wants love but is held back by the knowledge that for him it has a high price.

Bella Swan is a 17 year old girl played by Kirsten Stewart who moves to the tiny in the middle of nowhere town of Forks in Washington where her live, love becomes intertwined with Edward and this relationship underpins the appeal of the movie.

Normally a relationship between a 108 year old man and a 17 year old girl would trigger interest by some not-so friendly law authorities, but in the world of teenage Vampires they may have been around for decades but in all senses they have not transformed from the teenagers they once were.

Edward and Bella develop a relationship at High School, but Edward is held back by fears that his innate Vampire yearnings for blood may drive him to harm her if they get too intimate. The love he has for her is overriding but unfulfilled and he is forced to demonstrate this as he battles a troop of not-so friendly vampires who move into town with intent of doing real harm to humans including Bella.

It is the pureness of their love, the bad boy who deep inside is truly in love that has spawned the obsessive hordes of Twi-Hards, ardent (mostly teenage) devotees of the film. This devotion in turn has sent the film soaring to box office records.

The recently sequel to the original Twilight, ‘Twilight Saga: New Moon’ posted the largest opening-day box office gross on record, taking in $72.7 million on its first day. While the original Twilight movie made for $37 million has grossed over $384 million to date.

No Love for Katie and Pete on Amazon

Cast your mind back to when Katie Price and Peter Andre were one of the Hottest couple in show business, when anything they touched turned to celebrity gold, well almost anything.

One thing they were never able to capture the public's interest with was their music and in particular their debut album as a couple - A Whole New World.

No where has it more clear than when you read through the hilarious comments on Amazon for the album.

Here are a sample and the common theme is they are deliciously over the top and very very tongue in cheek.

One reviewer wrote:
"If you can imagine a soothing blend of jojoba oils, vanilla, and WD40 being poured into both ear holes simultaneously, then you will have only been able to scratch the surface of the feast of pleasure that is Katie And Pete's "A Whole New World" Album. Similar in it's ambition to Wagner's "ring cycle" but less German, "A Whole New World" is one of the best sound combinations that has ever been recorded."

another revealed:
"A heady mix of intoxicating and life affirming works from our English rose, Katie Price and her Greek beau Andre. A collection of achingly beautiful songs that depict a revealing and harrowing portrait of the human condition.

Highlights include a masterly interpretation of Don't Go Breaking My Heart, far eclipsing Ru Paul and Elton John's 1993 duet. Andre's shimmering prose is delivered in their inimitable style. Magisterial and epoch-making"

and a third shared this:
"Rather foolishly in hindsight, I thought the other reviews were just being sarcastic. However, having now listened to this peerless work of art I can see that they were actually holding back, perhaps recognising that meer words could never adequately capture the staggering genius of this modern masterpiece.

It is, quite simply, an aural feast to which we are all invited. When my grandmother heard it she danced around the living room, something she hadn't been able to do since she died eight years ago. In an age of conflict and fear we may have finally found a voice - or indeed two voices - that can speak peace to the nations. A Whole New World? With this album anything is possible."

Katie Price humiliated on Chelsea Lately Chat Show

It looks like Katie Price's (aka Jordan) attempts to "break into" America has suffered another set back as she was humiliated on a US TV chat show.

Katie has wanted to break into the US Market for ages, although we have no idea what she has to offer them and that was made clear as she was relentlessly mocked in the interview she did on the Chelsea Lately show on the US Entertainment Network.

The interview started with Chelsea asking: "Why don't you explain to people what you do?" Katie Price starting off replying: "God, well, how long have you got?" - to which the deadpan hostess replied: "Six minutes."

Katie Price ranbled as she struggled to explain: "I started off as a model, I've got perfume out, bed linen, 33 books. I've got underwear, swimwear.

"You name it, I do it."

She said she was in LA for an "LA Botox" and a hairdo before she heads to the Oz jungle for I'm A Celebrity.

Katie Price added: "I always fly over here to get my Botox done. I'm mad, I love it."

Bemused Chelsea noted: "Anyone who looks at you will know that your forehead will never move." Ouch!

Katie Price continued: "I've even got LA boobs as well. I fly over every three months to get my hair done and Botox."

Chelsea sarcastically called Jordan "interesting".

Finally she cut in and said: "I'm not going to ask you anything any more. It's your business what you want to do.

"You can go live with your horses and your kids and get Botox - I don't give a ****!"

David Haye beats Nikolai Valuev

Really the post title should be "David beats Goliath".

In case you've missed it, this is a boxing story (yes we do sports as well, well occasionally) of plucky British Challenger David Haye taking on the giant and I mean giant Russian champion Nikolai Valuev.

Nikolai stands at 7ft 2 and David a comparatively minute 6 ft 3.

Now just who would you put you money on? Well you would have been wrong ! In their world heavyweight championship bout tonight in Germany, David defied what looked like to the lay man as a lost case to beat the Russian giant on points after 12 rounds 114-114, 116-112, 116-112.

p.s just for the record most boxing pundits thought David would win, but why ruin a good headline...

Bon Jovi Tickets top £1000 a seat!

Credit Crunch? What Credit Crunch! It seems either for people selling Bon Jovi tickets or those buying it the world is still awash with cash.

The Rock band are heading to England for 10 dates in June at the 02 Centre in Docklands.

Tickets range from £45 for seats at the back and in upper tiers to £200 for floor seats in the front block. But tickets for the front row of Pit 1, almost within touching distance of the stage, cost a staggering £1,275.03 each.

Angry fans said they felt betrayed by frontman Jon Bon Jovi's band, who last night performed their new single, We Weren't Born To Follow, on The X Factor.

Writing on Bon Jovi's official website, one said she had been a fan of the Livin' On A Prayer rockers for 24 years but was “gutted” by the high prices. “Have they not heard we are going through a recession?” she added.

Another said: “The prices of these tickets are ludicrous. You let us down, guys.”

Vettel pops the question for Button.

Asking your girlfriend or fiancee for their hand in marriage is a tough call for any guy. What is even tougher is if you aren't ready to take that step and you are put in the spot.

Spare a thought for Jensen Button. He's just won the Formula 1 World Championship, he is on top of the world and master of all her surveys, but someone forgot to send the memo to Sebastian Vettel.

The cheeky German had Button squirming during the press conference after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix the last of the Formula 1 season. The conference switched from the details of the race to Button's love life as Vettel peppered Button on when he was getting married.

“I hear you are getting married,” the 22-year-old Red Bull driver, with a prankster’s grin on his face, said to the world champion as they sat together in a news conference after the first day-to-night race.

“Are you proposing?” replied Button, who finished third for champions Brawn in the season-ending race under floodlights at Yas Marina.

“I heard you will get married,” clarified the German, who has already built up a reputation as a lover of English humour and practical jokes.

“You know, they write great things in the press. Thank you for that one Seb,” said the 29-year-old Button, who wrapped up the title in Brazil last month, with a pained look.

“But I am going to enjoy this, as we often look too far into the future and I want to just enjoy this moment and then I will look to the future after that.”

Button has been accompanied to most races this season by his Japanese-Argentine lingerie model girlfriend Jessica Michibata, with some British tabloids already wondering when he will pop the question.

Vettel refused to let the subject drop when asked later what he would be doing over the long break before testing starts up again in February. “Jenson’s getting married. So he’s busy,” he shot back.

Australian Mark Webber, second in a Red Bull one-two finish, interjected: “And we’re all invited as well, everyone. But Japan’s a long way, isn’t it?“

“What’s the date of the wedding, Jenson?” asked a newspaper reporter.

“I’m not getting married this year,” said Button.

“You don’t love her?” inquired Vettel in a voice full of mock concern.

“I think some things need to be kept private in life, and that’s one of them,” replied Button.
