Tiger Woods Pal Becomes NY Private Eye

Rachel Uchitel to work as gumshoe in Big Apple

Add private eye to the roles of Rachel Uchitel: ex mistress of Tiger Woods, "Celebrity Rehab" star, nightclub manager, VIP hostess and TV news producer.

Now Uchitel has a new career.  She told the New York Post that she’s returning to Manhattan as a private investigator.

“Obviously, people want to go down the 'cheating' road, and assume it's all about me finding cheating spouses,” Uchitel told the paper.  “But I'm less interested in that.”

She told the Post that she wants to concentrate on  “….missing people, cold cases, and I’m sure, a few liars out there who need to be exposed. I want to solve cases for the underdog, for people who don’t have a voice.”

Uchitel will be working for the Los Angeles-based DGA firm in Manhattan and hopes to obtain a gun permit.

She also has dreams of someday starting her own gumshoe company, she told the paper.

“I'm thinking of calling it Puma PI -- because I'm not yet a cougar,” joked the 36-year-old.
