Playboy to feature Rachel Uchitel; topless and backless

Uchitel has inked a deal with Playboy and the pictures would play be her rules: topless and backless. She has the option to jump ship at any time and refuse the photo shoot

First it was because of a common man in their lives! But the feeling of animosity continues to brew in the minds of serial mistress Rachel Uchitel and adult-film star Joslyn James even after the cat is out of the bag and the Tiger is no longer with any of them, at least on records.

The two former mistresses of former No. 1 golfer, Tiger Woods, are busy trading gibes at each, the moot point this time being Uchitel’s decision to go, not nude, but topless for Playboy magazine.

Verbal duel
“I think (Rachel is) a bed jumper and she needs to get a hobby — and a real job, like the rest of us — instead of making a living out of exploiting married men and trying to ruin families like she did. Just my opinion,” said James in the latest of swipes against Rachel.

Uchitel, who is now based in Las Vegas, hopes that this break would give her television career a huge boost. As per the agreement, Uchitel can put down the offer anytime she changes her mind.

It all started, rather restarted, when Uchitel, in response to a question from celebrity gossip site TMZ.com regarding James’ decision to use Woods affiliation as a promotional tool in strip clubs, said a few things that James did not like.

“My personal opinion is that (Joslyn) had originally said she didn’t want to go down that road — then she did. If this is the way she wants to make a living, then that’s how she’s going to go and promote it. It’s probably more money than she had before,” Uchitel said.

James was not one of those who would keep mum. She responded in an e-mail to TMZ on Saturday, “I find it extremely funny that she is choosing to bash me in saying I am now making a career for myself from Tiger. Oh yeah, that's right. She got PAID from Tiger to keep her mouth shut.”

The Playboy offer
Initially, Uchitel declined the offer from Playboy because of fear of her family, reports Dailystar.co.uk. However, on second thoughts, she changed her mind considering that it was “an offer she could not refuse.”

The 35-year-old was the first woman linked to the ace golfer in November of 2009. It was her texts on Tiger's phone that led to a fight between the superstar and his wife Elin.
