A-Rod Desperate for Some Real Housewives Action

Is Alex Rodriguez trying to reinvent himself as MLB's unofficial ambassador to gay fans one swing of his "bat" at a time? First, he begins an intimate "friendship" with Madonna, then he appears in omnisexual men's magazine Details leaning in for an intimate moment with a man (OK, a mirror image of himself), and now he apparently stepped out with a star of Real Housewives of New York, a favorite show of many homo-TiVos. 

A-Rod was reportedly spotted all over town this weekend with Bethenny Frankel. Riptide doesn't watch much Real Housewives programming, so we don't know much about this lady except for the fact that she has kind of crazy eyes. 

According to the NY Daily News, A-Rod dropped Frankel off at the Fontainebleau this Friday at 12:30 a.m. and then made plans to have dinner with her Saturday. Three months ago, the Daily News reported they might have "hooked up" before Rodriguez cut it off. That might not have been true, but A-Rod, apparently a regular gossip column reader, was intrigued enough by the reports to make it a reality.
