From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rachel Uchitel (born 1975)[1] is a nightclub manager, who has managed the VIP section of "some of the most successful clubs in New York".[2] In 2006, she was the VIP hostess at Tao.[3]

Uchitel spent five years after college as a news producer in New York for Bloomberg television.[4] She held that job on September 11, 2001, when her fiance, investment banker James Andrew O'Grady, was killed in the September 11 attacks of the World Trade Center.[5] A few days later, she appeared on the front page of the New York Post holding a picture of O'Grady.[6][4] This picture was published worldwide.[7]

In 2004, she married Wall Street trader Steven Ehrenkranz. Their marriage lasted four months, and was the featured article of the Sunday New York Times Vows section.[8]

In late 2009, The National Enquirer published a story that alleged that Uchitel had had an affair with Tiger Woods, which she denied.[9]
