WELL, it certainly took Cynthia Rodriguez - now busy maxing out her hubby's credit cards - a long time to admit that she doesn't believe Madonna and Alex had a sexual affair, but "an affair of the heart." There is a significant difference, folks. Here's the deal: Alex has been in an unhappy marriage for some time. (Ever see Cynthia and Alex interact? Not a cheerful duo.) He has behaved, according to rumors and strippers, without much discretion or concern. At age 29, he's no kid. It is likely he began to wonder if there was a way to alter his behavior and his life.

I knew a girl once who taught me to believe in love, no matter how hard I resisted. And then a third baseman ruined it for me. Thanks for nothing, A-Rod. Alex Rodriguez's wife, Cynthia, filed for divorce this week on grounds of "infidelity" and accusations that the 12-time All-Star "emotionally abandoned" her and their two children. "The marriage of the parties is irretrievably broken because of the husband's extramarital affairs and other marital misconduct," according to her petition for dissolution of marriage, which was filed in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court.

There's nothing Tabloid America resents like a quiet divorce. We want celebrity breakups public. We want them messy. We want to turn on the TV and see courthouse paparazzi scrums. We want to lean over the checkout counter for tawdry details. Cheating accusations? Yes, please! Good names muddied? If at all possible! Compromising photos? All that you got! So, Kevin Costner, thanks for nothing. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills? That's what we're talking about.

I SUPPOSE I am his mistress. It's wonderful, isn't it?" So said Britain's Marjorie Wallace, speaking about her relationship with the Earl of Snowden. (I know - you thought it was Madonna, fessing up on A-Rod.) The earl was not amused by his now former lover's candor. Snowden, ex-husband of the late Princess Margaret (Queen Elizabeth's sister), is the subject of a juicy new biography by Anne de Courcy. He cooperated with the author and spoke candidly. Too late he realized he had been too candid.

UHHH ... I can't jump rope in high heels!" "Really?" "Well, not that high a heel." OK, folks, who do we know who would jump rope (double-dutch, too) in heels? Of course! It is our old friend, the indomitable Madonna. La Ciccone has been rehearsing her "Sticky and Sweet" tour in a massive space in New York. Her latest troupe of beautiful dancers is present, as is every other member of a massive Madonna undertaking. When the boss works, everybody works! It is 80 degrees and humid outside.

OH, WHAT a circus! Oh, what a show! ... we've all gone crazy!" So go the Tim Rice lyrics for one of Evita's rousing songs (music by Andrew Lloyd Webber). Appropriate words as Cannes awaits the arrival of Madonna. The Hard Candy pop empress will join AmfAR's activist deluxe Sharon Stone for Harvey Weinstein's annual Cinema Against AIDS gala tomorrow night. The anticipatory hysteria and nerves around the convergence of the two blondes is so thick you can cut it with a needle full of collagen.

I'M EMBARRASSED!" That's 15-year old Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, denying responsibility for a provocative Annie Leibovitz photo that appears in the June issue of Vanity Fair. Perhaps Miley should be embarrassed about acting the victim, blaming VF, for her own choices. Miley is still smarting from the release of private MySpace pictures that showed her playing peek-a-boo with her blouse (nice green bra underneath) and cozy with a boy. I thought the "scandal" over that was ridiculous.

Which came first, Madonna's image or her music? In her 25-year career, the pop superstar's ever-changing look and provocations garnered more critical attention than her musical output. Yet in that time, she managed to score major hits and sell 200 million albums around the world. There's no question that her morphing image, which used to be surprising and daring, helped sell her music. Although her albums were often calculated appropriations of musical sub-genres, they used to offer thrills.

Once upon a time, there was a pop goddess named Madonna who ruled the radio airwaves and Billboard charts with her beyond-the-curve music. She often thrilled and sometimes shocked millions with a sound and image that drastically morphed with each album release. But the inevitable happened: Madonna grew older. She became a mother, got married, acquired a British accent and wrote children's books. Meanwhile, younger, edgier pop tarts (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce) rose triumphant in Madonna's wake.

On April 28, Madonna's final album for Warner Records - her home base for 25 years - debuts. The first single, a duet with Justin Timberlake titled "4 Minutes," has rocketed up the Top 40 Countdown meter faster than any song in the chart's 38-year history. It is No. 1 on iTunes. Perhaps most significantly, Ellen DeGeneres shimmies to it every day on her TV show. (Ellen now equals Oprah in shaping cultural cravings. If either of these women says, "Buy it! Love it!" - millions do.) So Madonna's swan song for Warner might be her biggest hit ever.
