Why Rachel Uchitel Ran From Rehab -- Dad's Death

7/29/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The issue that drove Rachel Uchitel to run away from rehab had nothing to do with Tiger Woods -- instead it was an intense talk about her father's death.

Sources closely connected to the production of "Celebrity Rehab" tell TMZ that Rachel's breaking point came during a recent one-on-one therapy session where the main topic was her dad.

We're told Rachel's father died of a cocaine overdose in his 40s, and Rachel was 15 at the time.

Rachel split from Dr. Drew Pinsky's facility in Pasadena and stayed at a Beverly Hills hotel for one night -- and, according to our sources, she only came back the next day because her 'Rehab' castmates called and urged her to rejoin them.

Leave it to the men at TMZ to provide an explanation for her behavior. When they interviewed her at TMZ they gushed and laughed and acted like school boys with a crush. It was very embarrassing to watch. They never have recognized WHAT she is even though most of the world has. She's got a solid following at TMZ-at least amongst the males.

She looks old, ugly, and worn out by life. Can't wait until we hear she's passed away.

Why do we care about this woman? Her only claim to fame is being a slut that goes after married men. I don't want to read about this skanky woman that clearly has no heart or morals.

While it is "possible" that the buddhist can emerge victorious at Firestone, realistically speaking, it doesn't look so good for him now ... and it's not going to get any better. There will likely be no Ryder Cup, no Fed-Ex Cup, no top world ranking, etc. In fact, the only two things Tiger will have left going for him, are his children and his local temple. It's ironic really, how things always come full circle in life. His children and his faith should have always been his top priorities, right from the start. Well, now they are, whether he likes it or not. You tell me that God doesn't act in mysterious ways !

She's got $10 million from tiger, what is she hiding thats worth so much. The sex and drugs are already mentioned, so is it the Poly Max Extremes he used on the golf course, that would certainly end his golfing status. She knows what elin knows.

This girl is not a celebrity!! Stop treating her like one. I mean, you have an affair with a celeb and you become an overnight sensation! Its gross!! She is disgusting!! I also agree that she is paid a hefty amount to do this crap! Yes, its a sad background story! It's not enough to make me like her a$$. Her 15 minutes of fame is long gone and I'm sure she is laughing it all the way to the bank thanks to websites like this!!!
