After the announcement of Derek Jeter's breakup with his long-time girlfriend Minka Kelly last week, much was made of the actress getting cozy with her "Charlie's Angels" co-star Ramon Rodriguez.
Jeter is used to being in the headlines and has weathered media storms before but this seems different.
Remember Jeter getting dissed by his new teammate in a magazine article like Alex Rodriguez did to the Yankees captain when A-Rod first joined the team. Unlike that, the breakup publicity has got to be bothering the Yankees shortstop.
Jeter had one of his best seasons after A-Rod was quoted saying things like "He [Jeter] has never had to lead" in the 2001 Esquire piece. "He" was an All-Star and batted .311 that season.
Since the breakup announcement, Jeter is 3-for-16 with one run scored and his average is heading south of .300.
R-Rod reportedly spent many a long night inside Kelly's film-set trailer lending a sympathetic ear to the heartbroken starlet. Yeah, I've heard that one before.
All A-Rod did was spend many a long night inside his hotel rooms checking himself out in the mirror.
According to the New York Daily News, R-Rod and Kelly have been spotted in Miami together; while they film scenes for the new television series, which is debuting in the fall. It is a remake of the iconic '70's series.
Yesterday, the former "Saturday Night Lights" beauty and the 31 year-old R-Rod were spotted huddled together under an umbrella as they headed back to their trailers.
What's really unbelievable is that beefcake Rodriguez is reprising the role of Bosley. Wasn't he originally played by the character actor David Doyle in the first series?
I bet Jeter wishes the doughy Doyle was still playing the part.
