I was on Twitter this morning when a Tweet from People.com with a link caught my eye: “Alex Rodriquez opens up about Cameron Diaz.”
Okay, I was hooked. I clicked on the link and here’s what I got.

They have have broken up – but clearly Alex Rodriguez harbors no hard feelings toward Cameron Diaz.
“I don’t like talking about my relationships,” the New York Yankee tells The Insider in a new interview, “but I will tell you about C.D. – she’s probably one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever met, and just an amazing light.”
The two had an on-again, off-again relationship, though a source confirmed to PEOPLE the two had split for good in September 2011.
At the time, Rodriguez had equally kind words for Diaz, telling PEOPLE, “I have a lot of love for Cameron. We’ll always be friends.”
As for people gossiping about his personal life – or his athletic abilities, for that matter – Rodriguez tells The Insider, he’s not fazed.
“Ah, you know, it’s New York,” he says, “people are always going to have an opinion [with] pretty much anything you do, both on and off the field.”
First of all, I wouldn’t exactly call A-Rod’s quotes “opening up.” It was more like he gave the interviewer a couple of soundbites. But whatever. I think it’s hilarious that he refers to her by her initials. I wonder if she calls him A.R.
Mostly, I just want her to star in “An Ex to Grind,” the novel of mine that’s in development for a feature at Fox with her attached to play my heroine, Melanie Banks. I found out recently that the producers have moved on from the script by Jeremy Garelick (“The Break-Up,” “The Hangover”) and are looking to hire a new screenwriter. That’s Hollywood.
In other show biz news, CC is on Jimmy Fallon’s show tonight. If anybody watches it, tell me how he was.
Congrats to YankeeCase and Diane and any other NY Rangers fans reading this. I was out for dinner and kept checking the score of the game and was so happy that the good guys won and will now move on to the next round. Nothing more exciting than playoff sports.
