If you're waiting for Rachel Uchitel to dish on her relationship with Tiger Woods, you're out of luck - at least for now. The first woman accused of being Tiger Woods's mistress abruptly cancelled her scheduled press conference today. Uchitel's attorney, Gloria Allred, who's represented everyone from Paula Jones to Amber Frey, gave no reason for the cancellation. TMZ.com is reporting that Woods and Uchitel spoke on the phone as recently as last night, fueling speculation that the world's No. 1 golfer is paying the New York nightclub promoter a hefty sum to stay silent. Uchitel's name first surfaced in the National Enquirer, which reported that she and Woods were having an affair. The story is believed to have precipitated a Nov. 27th argument between Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, that ended with Woods crashing his SUV outside his Florida home. Since Uchitel, two other women have been named as paramours of the links legend. They are Los Angeles cocktail waitress, Jamie Grubbs, who claims she was carrying on Woods for over two years, and Las Vegas club manager Kalika Moquin.
