A-Rod, Bethenny Frankel didn't hit it off



It doesn't look like New York Yankees headliner Alex Rodriguez is going to be paired up with Real Housewives of New York's Bethenny Frankel anytime soon. The New York Daily News said that while they were hanging out together at a Miami hotel this week, A-Rod had hooked up with a "trashy blond girl" right after the visit.

Tbd-kellybensimon042009 “Alex and this girl were laying outside at the Delano, soaking up some sun,” a source says. “She’s definitely got the stripper look A-Rod seems to gravitate toward.”

Frankel was in Miami to promote her new book, Naturally Thin, but that's not what was on news crews' minds: “One of the anchors started the interview by asking Bethenny if she was dating Alex,” another source says. “She was snippy, and you could tell she was bothered that this was cutting into her promotional time, but she handled it well, simply saying ‘I’m not answering that.’”

Indeed, it's hard to answer when nothing happened. But she still wants to make Kelly Bensimon jealous, right? So here are the juicy deets: Rodriguez apparently took Frankel to a Latin steakhouse in Coral Gables, then "he dropped her off like a gentleman after the date, but they didn’t tear up the clubs the way Alex likes to,” another source says.

And what does one of Bethenny's friends say is the problem? "It wasn’t love at first sight, and they’re not burning up the phones. Bethenny knows Alex is a serial dater and doesn’t want to get involved.”

Indeed, being a serial dater is what pushed A-Rod's ex-wife Cynthia to get a divorce in the first place.
