Rachel Uchitel to Sue 'New York Post' for 9/11 Story

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Rachel Uchitel isn’t “almost happy” about how 9/11 killed her fiance.

The former nightclub hostess and Tiger Woods mistress is fuming about a story put out by the New York Post’s Page Six Magazine that quotes her as saying she’s “almost happy” her relationship with investment banker James Andrew O’Grady ended on 9/11 when O’Grady died in the World Trade Center attacks. She first made headlines in the days after 9/11, when the New York Post published a photo of her in front of Bellevue Hospital grieving for her fiance.

“I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good,” the magazine quoted Uchitel, 36, as saying. “I’m almost happy it ended the way it did because I’ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced.”

Uchitel’s publicist told ABC News that the ex-VIP hostess was misquoted and plans to sue.

“They took Rachel’s comments from another article wholly and completely out of context,” Uchitel’s publicist said in an email. “Rachel is demanding an apology and a retraction.  She is seeking legal counsel to protect her rights and to make sure this does not happen again.”

A representative for the Post did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s requests for comment.

A video featured on the Post’s website along with the story shows Uchitel reflecting on 9/11 but doesn’t show her saying anything that’s quoted in the story.

“I always miss Andy, that’s never changed in 10 years,” she says in the video. “It’s something that I experience as a loss every single day.”
