(Newser) – Rachel Uchitel has broken her media silence to tell the world she's not a tramp. "In every story you need a villain and a hero. I've been characterised as a villain," the first woman alleged to have had an affair with Tiger Woods tells OK! magazine. "People have called me a homewrecker, gold-digger, tramp, whore. I made mistakes, but I'm not those things. I have very good qualities. When you’re judged by the nation, it’s really difficult. It’s horrible."

"People created this image of me because they don't understand what I do," the nightclub hostess says. "They call me an escort or a madam. I don't do anything that has to do with sex. I'm not a whore. I'm not a tramp. I'm not an escort. I'm not stupid or a bimbo."
