Tiger Woods infidelity fame doing good to Rachel Uchitel
While Woods is still struggling to recover from that massive turmoil in his life, Uchitel, it seems, is enjoying the benefits it got her.
She is set to appear in Playboy magazine and was also being considered for other famous reality shows.
Apparently, Donald Trump was looking to have her on his ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ show but he got upset with Uchitel on learning that she has agreed to be a part of ‘Celebrity Rehab,’ where Dr. Drew Pinsky tries to help some celebrities overcome their addictions.
We have zero interest in her now. Look at what ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ did for Piers Morgan. He’s getting Larry King’s job. She made a bad mistake. – Donald Trump
Uchitel is reportedly trying to trounce her dependence on prescription pills on the VH1 show.
Donald Trump has “zero interest” in Uchitel
In the eyes of Donald Trump, she has made a huge mistake by choosing Dr. Drew over him. “It’s a terrible decision,” Trump told TMZ.
“We have zero interest in her now. Look at what ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ did for Piers Morgan. He’s getting Larry King’s job. She made a bad mistake.”
Trump insisted that Celebrity Apprentice is far bigger a show than Celebrity Rehab. “I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available,” he said. “I’m moving on.”
Celebrities checking into Rehab
Former supermodel Janice Dickinson, socialite Jason Davis, Frankie Lons, the mother of singer Keyshia Cole and teen pop star Leif Garrett will be among Uchitel’s castmates on Rehab. They will soon check into soon the Pasadena Recovery Center to record the fourth season of the show.
Another star to feature in the show is Jeremy London, who recently made headlines for being a kidnap victim.
London, 37, recently claimed that he was kidnapped while changing his car’s tire in Palm Springs, California and was forced to do drugs and buy alcohol. The actor has been battling drug and alcohol addictions for long; his own family refused to buy his kidnap-story.
No rehab for LiLo, she gets jail instead
The makers of ‘Celebrity Rehab’ also tried to get Lindsay Lohan on the show. They reportedly offered to pay $1 million to the troubled actress, but LiLo had to turn it down because she was supposed to check into jail.
