A-Rod dating ‘The Real Housewives’ babe?New York, Apr 13 : Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is reportedly dating a contestant from ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’.

The 33-year-old baseball star was seen sharing an intimate dinner with Bethenny Frankel at a local restaurant in Miami on April 10.

According to The News'' Gatecrasher column, Frankel and A-Rod hooked up "three months ago".

However, Frankel later laughed off the reports.

She said, "We''re madly in love; we''re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I''m in the front row when they''re playing. I never felt this way."

But really, she insisted, "No, I''ve never been in the same room with him.”

However, sources say that Rodriguez subsequently got in touch with Frankel.

"I think the reports sparked his curiosity. I think he respected the way she denied it," the New York Daily News quoted an insider as saying.

"They could be a match,” said a friend.

“She''s very athletic - she snowboards and surfs. She''s an expert on nutrition. She''s also a no-nonsense, straight-shooting lady. And we know Alex likes strong women," the friend added. (ANI)
