Yesterday the New York Daily News and Post both had gossip round-ups of all the parties hosted by New York baseball players. Both papers agree: famous people went to parties. The Daily News bit seems more fact-based and less salacious, so let's go with the Post:
Alex Rodriguez's teammates must wish they could divorce him too. "He's become a huge distraction with the Madonna fiasco," a source told Page Six. "It's always all about him." That explains why none of his fellow Yankees went to the All-Star bash he hosted at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club Monday night. Instead, his mommy, Lourdes, and his new best friends, Guy Oseary and Ingrid Casares, were by his side in a corner booth as he threw back shots. And Casares was then spotted leaving A-Rod's Park Avenue pad yesterday afternoon….
Over at Marquee, the more likable Derek Jeter threw a bash filled with pals like Billy Crystal and Michael Jordan. Jeter also brought his latest fling, Minka Kelly. They came in separately, but a spy said they were "very much together on the dance floor."
Meanwhile, Mets third baseman David Wright hosted a Vitamin Water party at Hudson Terrace, where Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Paul Rudd and Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain listened to a midnight performance by 50 Cent.
And hey, lookie here. It's Blake Lively at that Vitamin Water party! Now, why would I include a bunch of pictures unrelated from the main focus of the story? Well, that's an easy one: I'm tired of looking at Jeter and A-Rod's stupid fucking faces. I hope everyone's okay with my decision.
