Report: A-Rod Dating 'Real Housewives' Star Bethenny Frankel

Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is looking for love a little closer to home these days.

According to the Daily News, the third baseman has been romancing fellow New Yorker, Bethenny Frankel, who stars on the hit Bravo reality show “The Real Housewives of New York.”

The two were spotted sharing an intimate dinner on Friday in Miami.

The gossip world has been buzzing for weeks about the pair, who reportedly first met for a date three months ago, but that A-Rod had cooled things off shortly afterward.

Frankel, 39, denied the rumors, telling interviewers: "No, I've never been in the same room with him," adding, "Can it be George Clooney? Can't it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?"

But the denial may have peaked Rodriguez’s interest, the News said, as he has a penchant for strong, outspoken women (including his ex, Madonna.)
