Most widely known as Tiger Woods‘ ex-mistress, Celebrity Rehab star Rachel Uchitel recently opened up about “second chances,” pregnancy and her hubby-to-be Matt Hahn in an exclusive interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop. In the interview, the mom-to-be said, “Everyone deserves a second chance,” referring to her tainted past with Tiger Woods and the press stalking her for years. “I moved on a long time ago and it’s odd to me that a lot of people haven’t,” she said. “People will still hear my name, an article will come out about me, I’ll see the negative spin on it and I’m not sure why.” But she’s not letting the public scrutiny tear her down. “I’m doing my best to try and get on the right path and have a family and be happy and make other people happy,” she said. “I’m really excited to be a mom!”

How do you overcome past drama to make a relationship work? 

Cupid’s Advice:

When bad things happen, it can be hard to start over and move on without people around you reminding you of your past mistakes. Even your romantic relationship can take a hit. Cupid has some tips:

1. Therapy: Sometimes the best way to get over past drama is to talk it out with a licensed therapist. You can’t expect to have a healthy romantic relationship until you’re healed inside.

2. Ignore public scrutiny: This is sometimes easier said than done, but it’s important that both you and your partner successfully ignore the gossip going on around you. If you let it get to either of you, it’ll damage your relationship.

3. Move on: Don’t live in the past. If you often think about the drama that happened years ago, and it affects your day-to-day life, that’s not healthy. You can’t truly enjoy your relationship until you leave the past in the past.
