From JustJared:

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have called it quits after three years together, JustJared.com can confirm.

“The split was amicable,” sources exclusively tell JJ of the 37-year-old Yankees superstar and 31-year-old actress. “But they remain friends. They still really care for each other.”

When JJ contacted her reps, they did confirm the split.

Last month, HBO premiered Deter Jeter 3K, a documentary that chronicles Derek’s journey of becoming the second player to reach 3,000 hits as a shortstop (the first was Honus Wagner).

I can’t say I saw this coming. Minka’s appearances in Derek’s box and DJ3K HBO special, you wouldn’t have any clue that the two were thinking about parting ways. All that talk that he would eventually marry her and that he was “ready to tie the knot” (remember all that talk about Oheka Castle?) all goes out the window now. So, Derek…whose next?

Taking you back in time…2005: “Sex and the Yogi”:  (The Smoking Gun) : View the Document

JANUARY 31, 2005–Claiming that his good name has been sullied by a ‘Sex and the City’ advertisement, baseball legend Yogi Berra has sued Turner Broadcasting System for $10 million. In the below New York State Supreme Court complaint, Berra, 79, contends that TBS improperly used his name in outdoor ads (on buses and subway kiosks) promoting the cable channel’s reruns of the racy HBO show starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Noting that he is a married grandfather and a ‘deeply religious man who has maintained and continues to maintain a moral lifestyle,’ the former New York Yankee claims that he has been tainted by the ad, which references the loose lifestyle of ‘Sex’ character Samantha, portrayed by Kim Cattrall. The offensive ads, Berra reported, sought the definition of the term ‘Yogasm.’ One of the possible definitions listed in the ad was, ‘b) sex with Yogi Berra.’ The correct answer was ‘c) what Samantha has with a guy from yoga class.’

According to Daily Variety, Alex Rodriguez will make his movie debut in the comedy “Friends With Benefits.” The film stars Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Woody Harrelson, Patricia Clarkson, etc. The filming will take place in and around New York, during off-days during the baseball season.

Army Documents revealed that DiMaggio had a bout of gonorrhea in 1938:

As a postscript to our story about Joe DiMaggio’s hostile attitude and malingering ways during his military tenure, U.S. Army personnel records reveal that the baseball star was formally discharged after he was diagnosed with “Pyschoneurosis Not Resulting From Combat.”
