Rachel Uchitel Goes to 'Rehab' ... for a Price

7/19/2010 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods' mistress numero uno Rachel Uchitel is heading to "Celebrity Rehab" -- but TMZ has learned the show resorted to drastic measures before she agreed to check in.

Sources connected to the production tell us Uchitel had originally turned down the show -- but after  producers DOUBLED their offer and Dr. Drew personally paid Uchitel a visit, Rachel changed her mind.

We're told Uchitel will make around $500,000 for her stint on the show.

A rep from VH1 claims Uchitel is hoping to kick an addiction to pills.

We're told it's unclear if this will affect Uchitel's offer to join Donald Trump on "Celebrity Apprentice."

The network claims Uchitel will be joined on the show by supermodel Janice Dickinson, actor Jeremy London, musician Leif Garrett, oil heir Jason Davis, ex-reality star Jason Wahler and singer Keyshia Cole's mother.

She needs to kick her addiction to married men. I don't know why anyone is giving this woman airtime. I steer clear of any show giving her airtime. I stopped watching Extra after they made her a 'special correspondent.'

The most stupidest rehab show ever to exist. Who's idea was it to give druggies/addicts money to feed their habit when they get off the show. What addict is not going to grab the $$$, pretend to want to be sober then once they are out, use the money to get high. Very pathetic show. Dr. Drew is a quack doc.

IMO the show is basically stupidity at its highest - Why in the world reward someone for being an addict? Its a insult to everyone's intelligence to reward someone like this Rachel for whatever addiction she will claim anyway. This woman needs to disappear - Her celebrity is only based on destroying marriages and families.
Whatever sponsors are thinking to back this show - You better re-think it - it's a sure channel changer!

The present and past participants aren't going on CR to overcome their addictions. These Z-list attention whores are doing it for a paycheck and for publicity. Has anyone from previous shows actually beat their addictions since participating? I highly doubt it. If they were really serious about getting the necessary help, they would have gone to a private clinic.

This show is not a real "rehab". It is for out of work actors and musicians and whores. Who cares about Tiger Woods sluts and really Leif Garrett!!! Only because he is being PAID to be on this show. Do any of them really continue with treatment after the cameras stop rolling. How about paying REAL LIFE people that have no money for rehab!!

I did not know that Dr. Drew could cure a person of being a nasty skank-whore. Add to that, I did not know that Dr. Drew could cure people of believing they are more important than they really are. The fact is that this whore should keep doing the pills and the producers of ""Celebrity" Rehab" should keep their money.

Really, no one should ever be paid to "come clean".

Oh yessss! Now his mistress in on Celebrity Rehab? The show "Issues" tonight is going to have a whole thing on Tiger tonight. Issues has been doing a great job with the sex/drugs addiction angle.

All I could think of is who did show blow to get that money? Or who does she have to blow on the show?

The sad thing is she got hooked on attention when her fiance died in 9/11 and she used the public's sympathy for her own gain. You can't get much lower then her.

Amazing that someone with no talent or claim to fame except being literally a whore can become a millionaire on TV. It's a sad reflection on anyone who watches it, and it's disgusting.
