That Rachel Uchitel and any of the other mistresses who have emerged to claim sexual liaison’s with the adulterous Tiger Woods proves only that in America we have evolved to the point that The Scarlet Letter (See: The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne) has been replaced with a $$$ symbol. A veritable checkbook morality prevails allowing us to have scandal without shame. People no longer get what they deserve as much as they get what they can concoct to manufacture a pay day. From prostitution to blackmail with legal representation, the best that money can buy, a profound pragmatism is now the primary motivating factor for many of us, even once nice college girls, whether or not we have a deep dark past as inspiration for a corrupted morality that leaves the father of one’s deceased fiance killed in the 9/11 attacks to tell the N.Y. Daily News that “she is a stranger to me now.”
Who am I to condemn Rachel Uchitel for basically exercising the morality that our culture provides justification and support for? Is it not the American way? The fairy tale has changed. Now little girls dream of growing up, meeting a rich married man, making him her sugar daddy in exchange for sexual favors and then blackmailing him so that she can extort sufficient funds to buy a condo, add to her Gucci Shoe collection and spend the winter months in the Carribean. Why are we surprised, especially in uncertain times where many who are operating with more restricted cash flow target those at a higher level on the human food chain because they sit on top of mountains of cash? These girls make Ashley Dupre look like a model citizen.
One may wish to consider whether Rachel ‘Man-Crazy’ Uchitel’s devolution into GFE Entrepreneurialism which has made her the new Sasha Grey, may be the result of some of her experiences with the key men in her life including, that (a) her father died over what appeared to be a drug assisted suicide, (b) she lost her fiancé, James Andrew O’Grady, a bond trader for Sandler O’Neill & Partners who was caught in the South Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th (c) her first marriage to financier Steven Ehrenkranz ended rather abruptly in divorce after just four months, or (d) her broken soul found comfort in the arms of a childhood friend in the nightlife industry who helped turn her on and turn her out to a new way of life as a VIP Hostess? And while it is not as if the entire blame for the corrupted morality of Rachel Uchitel can fall entirely on nightlife empressario Jason Strauss and his partners, is the morality of those running the nightlife industry in Las Vegas, the Hamptons and Club Row in Manhattan any different than had she landed on the doorstep of a pimp? Are the attractive women lured into the role of Rachel Uchitel encouraged to do whatever it takes, passed around like hors d’oeuvres to their celebrity clients? Or perhaps the right people just find each other to pimp and ho together for the greater good of their respective financial betterment.
UPDATE: Whether or not the Hoochie-tel will speak regarding Tiger Woods was the question of the day on Thursday. As picked up on The Huffington Post: “TMZ has reported that Uchitel and Tiger Woods spoke on the phone last night “for approximately a half hour” and that no payout was offered. But the report adds that “we have no knowledge one way or the other” if an offer has been made since then.” Radaronline reported that the reason for the cancellation of the press conference wherein Uchitel was slated to admit the affair was that her lawyer Gloria Allred is in talks with Tiger Woods’ representatives about a $1 million dollar bribe to keep Uchitel from selling her story. Today’s rumor is that there is alot more than a $1 million payout on the table to silence Uchitel, due likely to the volume of personal and private information she has pertaining to Tiger Woods’ lifestyle, that according to the NY Daily News and sources who spoke to TMZ mader her “scared for her safety”. One can only conclude from all the media reports is that that Rachel Uchitel is one smooth operator who learned something about how to cater to servicing the needs of her upscale clients and was likely far more than a mistress and more likely an enabler of Woods’ drug-fueled deviant lifestyle. If that is the case, this is likely to be a serious negotation for a rather substantial 7 figure payout since anything that could lead to putting further cracks in the multi billion dollar Tiger Woods economy will have wide reaching ramifications to all those who prosper at the trough of his success.
TRUTH ABOUT RACHEL: Will America ever really know the truth about the party girl who is Rachel Uchitel and her “ex-friends” who, as Rachel states were a couple of prostitutes, who revealed her “secret relationship” with Tiger Woods to the National Enquirer? One can only wonder whether Tiger Woods was targeted and set up by rogue elements in the Nightlife Industry in New York City, working in collaboration with Rachel Uchitel or sponsors? One has to ask because this is a woman who has played her hand smoothly thus far without looking at all like a deer in the headlights. From the outset this has the look and feel of a rather well orchestrated media show designed to extract a seven figure payout from a billion dollar celebrity athlete, not that I feel sorry for him. It is a truly foolish man who is rich, powerful, successful and married who whores around and does not think any of his paramours will give up details in exchange for cash.
Consider that Rachel has a reputation for insisting that get compensated fair value for her services for wrangling a celebrity clientele to all the venues that she has represented in Las Vegas, the Hamptons and New York City. Not that is any surprise as the pimps who created and used her likely tried to under pay the Princess for ”turning her out” but make no mistake this is a hustler who has a sense of her value, experience dealing with difficult men and knows how to get paid. She is also a media savvy professional woman who formerly worked at Bloomberg and comes from a somewhat prominent family well versed in the machinications of media and society. So really why the shock that Rachel lied? Her hiring of Gloria Allred was to extract a pay out because bottom line who will hire, in the future, someone to manage their celebrity clientele who has prior experience looking for blackmail money from the celebrities she is coddling? Consider the very real possibility that the girls who allegedly “sold out” and “lied” about Rachel Uchitel’s relationship with Tiger Woods to the National Enquirer in were instead playing a scripted role to position or set up Rachel to play the role she is in. Simply put, this is a girl is well versed in playing the players. Uchitel claimed that tabloid sources are selling fake stories and has called one of the girls a “trainwreck” who “is just looking for a payday because she is a fucking hooker.”
THE NEW FEMINISM?: A long time ago in a land far away, once upon a time in America, bitches (excuse my french) who “allegedly” messed around with married men would hide in the shadows with a certain degree of shame at being caught. No more Scarlet Letter’s. NOW they fly to L.A., hire “Feminist” Superlawyer Gloria Allred, get an agent and spend all of their time denying the affair to the media that they court, while behind the scenes you know they are looking for and angling for a check and to GET PAID either from the married man and his empire, Hollyweird or a publishing house.
It is the oldest trade in the book. Why complicate it? Last I checked when you phuck for $$$ we called it something else. Although truthfully the idiots who cheat on their wives and mess with these women, whether you meet them at nightclubs, upscale strip clubs or in the multitude of websites where wealthy men post looking for young women and women post looking for sugar daddy’s or millionaires are every bit as much a cliche as the married men they mess with, even if they have gotten a more sophisticated angle to turn tricks than straight up Sex Workers or Professional Escorts. And if you have not learned already, when you are going to engage in the oldest practice known to man: “Prostitution” then simply get the financial stuff out of the way upfront. And guys you should learn, you will either pay her now or you will pay her, your wife, your lawyers and representatives and media professionals later. When you are rich and famous and are looking to maintain a veil of secrecy to your indiscrete behavior then you best make sure that your mistress or mistresses are maintained better than a publishing house, movie studio or tabloid could provide them for details about her relations with you. These women know that they cannot trust you entirely. Only a woman who is truly ignorant would not be able to comprehend that a man who lies to the woman who recently bore his children is not likely to be 100% truthful with them. Hence that makes you even more vulnerable ultimately than them. Although you may be sponsored by NIKE who’s motto is “Just Do It” maybe you ought to have in your entourage someone who will remind you how much you have at stake so you DON’T JUST DO IT.
THE EVOLUTION OF SEX WORK & PLAY FOR PAY: So while some serious women fought with every ounce of their will for equality including the right to vote, equal pay et. al etc., even while being humiliated, demonized and even jailed for doing so and called all sorts of names, today “Working Girls” turning tricks in nightclubs who are every bit as guilty as the dirty boys that come in looking for them and are tempted to cheat on their wives, have found feminism into some convenient ruberic to defend themselves. Only thing is that, my understanding is that SEX WORKERS work under a slightly different system. So in the end, let’s be clear, truly that is what you are, a consensual sex worker and not a victim unless perhaps as a result of being goaded into prostitution to accomodate a propriertor’s celebrity clientele. You may still have some rights, the right to be paid a fair value for the service you provide. I do not care if you come from a good family, went to college, worked in the media, but once you get “turned out” by the nightlife industry and proprietors who made you a VIP Hostess to corral the afflluent, it does not make what you do any more sophisticated. There are plenty of working girls who speak 5 languages, have a masters degree and are even authors in their own right. So “Shake & Bake” and say that you made it with him. Sure you can get paid for servicing him but we need to have a greater discussion with full disclosure about the market value of your services. In this era of transactional romance, Porn Stars with lots of experience who deliver the “PSE” are known to get up to $5,000 per hour from their johns, women who are full time models begin at $1,500. College students, models and even some underfunded professional working women suffering from that famous Italian disease called “defundsalo” hunt for Sugar Daddys on Craigslist and in Millionaire Matchmaking websites.
GIRLFRIEND ENTREPRENEURS & THE JAP GFE: So what value do we put on the head of a nice Jewish American Princess who turns her tricks, as a veritable Girlfriend Entrepreneur (or perhaps better stated: “GirlFriendtrEpreneur“), serves as a part time madam arranging other liaisons while providing bottle service? That would seem to be a new category unless it is a subcategory under GFE–The Girlfriend Experience. I know that we add at least a 15-20% gratuity and for parties of 8 or more I believe we add 25% gratuity. Rachel Uchitel is emblematic of a culture of narcissistic Me Generation women who pursue the pleasure principle with an unspeakable degree of hedonistic indulgence and entitlement in ones own personal utility with no moral accountability and then feel entitled to an additional pay day for agreeing to keep the transactional romance private. So you say, that “A Playa’s Gotta Play”—I feel you babe, I don’t hate the player or the game, just tell me how we as a society go about placing a value on your service, the JAP GFE, and whether we can we can pay upfront or only on the back end. Now the last question, are you subject to any penalties? Changes in the oldest game in the book may require some adjustments to our valuation models.
Epilogue: I apologize for the inference herein that Ms. Uchitel as “The JAPPY Hooker” is essentially a prostitute or working girl turned out by her “friends” in the Nightlife Industry and hope that the prostitutes that I offended with that remark will forgive me.
