Stunning Uchitel, then a leggy blonde, was no stranger to the Calvin Klein underwear model.

During his time as one of the first male supermodels, he met the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, who was a Calvin Klein publicist, and the pair dated before she married JFK Jr.

"He used to say Rachel had freckles on her nose like Carolyn," Uchitel's friend told

She even met Bergin's dad, we're told.

Ironically, the New York club promoter, who was the first woman linked to the disgraced golf star, was clueless who Michael, then an aspiring actor, was.

The pal said, "I said, 'Rachel, Michael Bergin is a Calvin Klein model and he is on a billboard in Times Square!' She had no idea!"

"They had a fun and innocent relationship for a few months," the source added, "until he told her he got a part on Baywatch and was moving to California."
