Found April 26, 2012 on The Other Paper:

Alex Rodriquez is finally opening up about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz. Using the actress' initials as a term of endearment, A-Rod tells "The Insider' host Kevin Frazier— in the show airing Thursday night: "I don't like talking about my relationships, but I will tell you about CD: She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and an amazing light," reports Page Six of The New York Post.

When asked about another swing at marriage, the divorced Yankee slugger didn't sound as enthusiastic.

"I'm not sure," said Rodriguez. "I think my new hero is George Clooney."



Not Ken Griffey Jr. — whom A-Rod just passed on the career home-run list— or Cal Ripkin, but the eternal bachelor whose current girlfriend Stacy Keibler is close friends with Rodriguez's latest love Torrie Wilson. The two statuesque blonds are former WCW and WWE wrestlers.

"He's my new role model." he says of Clooney. "I think he's done it right."
