Alex Rodriguez "Had Portraits of Himself As a Centaur," Apparently

One of the fun things about the Alex Rodriguez-Kate Hudson romance is that A-Rod is getting looked at by the national gossip rags, not just the New York tabloids. I say this mostly because of an anecdote a former Rodriguez "fling" relays in Us Weekly this week, which may win some lifetime achievement awards for vanity: ↵
↵⇥⇥"A former Rodriguez fling remembers seeing portraits of the slugger, 34, as a centaur hanging over his bed.⇥⇥ ↵⇥

↵⇥⇥"He was so vain," his ex tells Us Weekly. "He had not one, but two painted portraits of himself as a centaur. You know, the half man, half horse figure?"⇥⇥ ↵⇥

↵⇥⇥ ↵⇥

↵⇥⇥Adds the ex, "It was ridiculous."⇥⇥ ↵⇥

↵
↵

↵But which part was ridiculous, unnamed ex? The centaur portrait? The centaur portrait being over the bed? One centaur portrait not being enough? Picking a centaur instead of a unicorn? I must know! ↵

↵(The fantastic image above was mocked up by jasoncfry of Faith and Fear in Flushing.) ↵
