Current Google Insights trends: Rachel Uchitel, Michelle Obama, Tiger Woods
Tuesday 01 December 2009
The name of American socialite and party organizer Rachel Uchitel is getting a heavy workout on Google's search engine and in gossip tabloids across the globe on December 1.
If you are to believe the tabloids, Uchitel has been accused of being romantically involved with professional golfer Tiger Woods and is supposedly the cause of a fight between Tiger Woods and his wife that lead to Woods' November 27 car crash.
Rachel Uchitel and Tiger Woods both vehemently deny the claims, but that has not stopped a wave of people heading to Google to search for the names of both celebrities.
The name of America's first lady has dropped one place in Google Insight's list of trending topics, but people seem to be drawn to searching Google Images for the picture of an ape superimposed over the face of Michelle Obama.
