Looks like an affair of more than the heart may be heating up.

Finally free of the ol' ball and chain Cynthia Rodriguez, and with plenty of time to kill this October, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was spotted enjoying a cozy dinner for two at Dos Caminos 3rd Avenue Tuesday - with Madonna!

They pair ate at an alcove-like table in the back.

Alex Rodriguez, who has donated money to her charity Raising Malawi, has yet to discuss the extent of his relationship with the pop superstar.

He and Cynthia Rodriguez settled their divorce in September. Cynthia's lawyer, in her filing, accused A-Rod "affair of the heart" with Madonna.

Madonna may be the first to take it off for Alex Rodriguez without being impressed by money - she's even richer than baseball's highest-paid choke-artist player!

Not that A-Rod wasn't linked to any flesh-related infidelity. He was caught in Toronto with manly stripper Joslyn Noel Morse, definitely railed Boston stripper Candice Houlihan, and was also linked to fitness model Alicia Marie.

Whatever it consisted of, Alex Rodriguez's relationship with Madonna - the Rod had been paying late night visits to her apartment, including just hours after his baby daughter was born this year - seemed to be the nail in the coffin.

"He [said] he was in love her," a friend of A-Rod recalled earlier this year. "He said, 'She's my f*%king soulmate, dude.'"

If it seems as if we've used the headline above before, well, that's because we have. A year ago. But here Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are again.

We're not sure what makes us want to hurl more, food from Taco Bell or The Hills stars feeding each other food from Taco Bell. We'll call it a toss-up.

The quasi-celebrities were handing out this gourmet cuisine at the annual "Reality Check Challenge" for Global Hunger at the Bell in L.A. on Thursday.

THG NOTE: You may want to keep a paper bag handy as you view the image below. It's not for the faint of heart. Or those who ate in the last hour.

Heidi Montag glances seductively at Spencer Pratt's ... taco.

In just 24 short years on this planet, Ashlee Simpson has had her father purchase a singing career for her, had some bad plastic surgery, become a celebrity gossip mainstay, then gotten knocked up by and hitched to Pete Wentz. Not a bad life!

Here's a little photo tribute to Ashlee on her birthday today. Click to enlarge ...

Ashlee and Pete Wentz

She's not the only star turning another year wiser (she can only go up) today. Oh no. Other celebrity birthdays include someone even more worthless, Brandon Davis (a.k.a. Greasy Bear), as well as the coolest chick alive, Gwen Stefani! Pics below ...

Elisabeth Hasselbeck cannot defend Sarah Palin as a candidate for Vice President.

But the conservative talk show host can shoot down rumors that she's leaving The View for a position at Fox News.

"While Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] has a great relationship with Fox News, there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that she is leaving The View," her agent yesterday. "Elisabeth is passionate in her beliefs and enjoys being a part of this dynamic group of women and engaging in daily conversations."

Give Elisabeth Hasselbeck credit for standing up for her beliefs, and for putting up with Rosie O'Donnell for so long.

From Dancing with the Stars to Shanking with the Inmates?

Race car driver and former reality TV champion Helio Castroneves has been indicted on tax fraud.

Castroneves has been accused of siphoning millions of dollars in income to a Panamanian shell company from 1999 to 2004. Sounds complicated, and shady.

The Dancing with the Stars season five winner will appear in a Miami court today to face charges of conspiracy and tax evasion. If convicted of all charges, he faces a maximum penalty of 35 years in prison. Yikes!

With those looks and this dancing background, Helio may be in serious trouble during any prison shower. We're just sayin.

Not all contestants on Dancing with the Stars were sad to see Kim Kardashian voted off this week.

Julianne Hough, for instance, was honest in her assessment of the reality star's talent:

"Kim was one of the weaker ones... Everyone has their perceptions of people before they meet them, and I can tell you she’s such a good person. Obviously, though, people have to be voted off to keep the show going. That’s the name of the game."

Julianne Hough says Kim Kardashian wasn't a great dancer. We say Hough should pose naked in Playboy.

Here are reactions from a trio of other competitors on the show:

Lance Bass: "I am very sad to see her leave. We are friends outside the show, so I will get to see her anytime I want."

Brooke Burke: "I would have liked to see her bust out and see more of her dancing. She didn't get the opportunity to do that."

Maurice Green: "Kim is like my little sister. All the dancers and celebrities are like a family. We all get to really know each other. It’s sad to see them go."

Sarah Palin, you scare me. You could be the President of the United States. John McCain is 72. Boys and girls, vote. I beg you. I’m not coming out the covers. It’s safer underneath the covers!

This quote pretty much sums up how many Americans feel about the prospect of Sarah Palin making a living in The White House.

Oh, You Betcha

Listen to Diddy say it, and a lot more, in the video below. Watch, enjoy and leave us a comment about it!

Kim Kardashian, Dustin Diamond, Keeley Hazell and Verne Troyer needn't read any further.

They already know how to record their very own sex tape.

But other aspiring amateur pornographers should heed the advice of Aubrey O'Day, whose desperate need for attention led to this quote to Complex Magazine:

"If you do a live feed through the TV, you can watch it on the TV while you’re doing it and it never records."

Random THG thought: if you're watching yourself - instead of your mate - on TV while having sex, you may have a) bad taste in partners, b) a narcissism complex or c) borh.

Aubrey O'Day can also offer tips on how to torture your pet.

We're kidding, obviously. Kid Rock is not running for office, nor did Sarah Palin mention him at any point. But you could make a case for interpreting this gem of a quote, from her interview with conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt, that way.

Asked why her candidacy has triggered some hostility, Sarah Palin said:

"I think they’re just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It's time that normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency. I think that that’s kind of taken some people off guard."

How that's supposed to be a selling point for her candidancy, we can't say. That's a (potentially endless) discussion for another time.

But If the man below is not Joe Six Pack, we don't know who is:

JOE SIX PACK: If John McCain decides to dump Sarah Palin after tonight's Vice Presidential debate, we recommend Kid Rock for the #2 spot on the GOP ticket.
