(Newser) – Surely you've been waiting on pins and needles for this: Rachel Uchitel has, finally, given an interview ... though she refuses to discuss her highly-publicized dalliance with Tiger Woods. "People have called me all sorts of names, but they don’t know me," she tells the Mail, adding that if her fiance hadn't been killed on Sept. 11, "my life would have taken a different course. I’d be fat and happy, living in a big house in Long Island with a load of kids."

She insists she "never set out to hurt anyone" and is "much, much more" than a "scarlet woman"—she's just addicted to love, and has been looking for "the perfect man ... who would marry me, give me the house and children I long for." All she'll say about Tiger is to respond, when told she's prettier than his other alleged mistresses, "It's hard not to be ... poor [Jaimee Grubbs] had a tooth missing. Honestly! She was toothless!"
