Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel defended her visit to Ground Zero in Manhattan for a television shoot that will appear in "Celebrity Rehab," reports the New York Post.
Uchitel, whose fiance died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, said she went to the site with television cameras to "get closure on some stuff I’ve been dealing with . . . and I don’t know why people would take that the wrong way. If people think I’m milking something for the benefit of getting on TV or getting more well-known, I’m already well-known," the story says.
"Celebrity Rehab" host Dr. Drew Pinsky accompanied Uchitel on the shoot, the article adds. She declined to say what she did at Ground Zero, which she hadn’t visited since 9/11, the story says.
"Nobody can f–k with me about 9/11," Uchitel said, according to the report.
