Even the Painted Tiger Gets Ass
By Stephanie Wei under General

I know what you’re thinking — Tiger wears red on bundays. Or that this is clearly a gratuitous, funny picture for you all to make entertaining captions. You may have already seen it over at Deadspin, but the editor forwarded it to me, so I could post, too. And today, I received an email, suggesting I put up more TMZ-ish type of content. So here it goes.

In Tiger Woods mistress news, the Queen Bee, Rachel Uchitel has agreed to strip down for a Playboy shoot. According to TMZ, she can pull out anytime before the shoot happens in three weeks. Who’s going to buy that issue? A lot, I’ll guess.

Meanwhile, a feud between Uchitel and XXX mistress Joslyn James is happening. It all started last Friday when Uchitel answered a question from TMZ about James exploiting her dalliances with Tiger for her strip club performances.

“My personal opinion is that (Joslyn) had originally said she didn’t want to go down that road — then she did,” Uchitel told TMZ. “To each their own. If this is the way she wants to make a living, then that’s how she’s going to go and promote it. It’s probably more money than she had before.”

James responded in an email to TMZ on Saturday.

“I find it extremely funny that she is choosing to bash me in saying I am now making a career for myself from Tiger,” Joslyn ranted. “Oh yeah, that’s right.  She got PAID from Tiger to keep her mouth shut. I find it funny that she says she was ‘well known’ before the Tiger news. I never heard of her before that. I was an actress prior and a dancer, I gave it up because I was fooled in a relationship with Tiger, I merely went back to what I was doing.”

She does have a point…then another attention-craving mistress chimed in.

“I don’t deny Rachel’s quote that some of the girls involved with Tiger are doing it for the purpose of fame and spotlight,” Jaimee Grubb told TMZ. However, I can only speak for myself, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t try to gain fame by having half the world hating me. “

Maybe not half, but she also has a point. Oh, it wasn’t over. More from Josyln!

“I think (Rachel is) a bed jumper and she needs to get a hobby — and a real job, like the rest of us — instead of making a living out of exploiting married men and trying to ruin families like she did. Just my opinion.”

Ouch. No response yet from Rachel. Apparently she’s staying classy on this one.
