Is A-Rod dating one of the “Real Housewives of New York City”?

Quick: What do “Real Housewives of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel and Madonna have in common?


Well, they’re both cougars – if the New York Daily News is to be believed – with a taste for Yanks… As in New York Yankees.

The newspaper reports today that Bethenny was spotted stepping out with none other than A-Rod in Miami this holiday weekend. According to the News’ “spy,” Bethenny the chef and Alex Rodriguez shared an “intimate dinner” at a local restaurant Friday night.

But that may have been all the pair shared.  A-Rod reportedly dropped Bethenny off at the Fountainbleau Hotel around 12:30 a.m. that night. Rumor has it, though, that the baseball superstar planned on taking her out again Saturday night.

Last month, the New York Daily News reported that the pair already shared a past – they supposedly hooked up three months ago – but that A-Rod ended things.

Bethenny, in an attempt to laugh off the gossip, told one interviewer, “We’re madly in love; we’re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I’m in the front row when they’re playing. I never felt this way.”

Then, possibly realizing people might actually believe her, she added, “”No, I’ve never been in the same room with him,” and expressed disappointment that the rumor mill wasn’t pairing her with a certain Hollywood hottie.

“Can it be George Clooney?” she asked. “Can’t it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?”

Evidently, that was enough for A-Rod to look over his shoulder at what he had cast aside.

“I think the reports sparked his curiosity,” said an insider for the Daily News. “I think he respected the way she denied it.”

Bethenny, 39,  is officially five years older than A-Rod. Which, if you think about it, is a lot closer than the age difference between him and his supposed former paramour, Madonna.

“They could be a match,” the Daily News quoted a friend as saying. “(Bethenny) is very athletic – she snowboards and surfs. She’s an expert on nutrition. She’s also a no-nonsense, straight-shooting lady. And we know Alex likes strong women.”
