The secret of Madonna’s split with Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie struck out, but A-Rod is just stepping up to the plate.

Madonna’s fairy-tale marriage with the British filmmaker came to a disastrous end because she got way too cozy with the Yankee superstar, sources told The Post yesterday.

Alex Rodriguez was so smitten with the pop queen that they discussed opening a chain of gyms together. He even attended Yom Kippur services with her and her three children in Times Square last week – sans “Snatch” director Ritchie.

“Things got to a breaking point about a month ago,” an insider told The Post. “And they [Madonna and Ritchie] did an intensive, two-week kabbalah course. That didn’t work.”

Denis Leary says autism criticism “taken out of context”

Denis Leary tells that controversial comments about autism from his new book were taken out of context.

In the tome, Why We Suck: A Feel-Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid, the comic blames the disorder on “inattentive mothers and competitive dads who want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can’t compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks . . . to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons.”

Leary says in a statement:

The people who are criticizing the “Autism Schmautism” chapter in my new book Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid clearly have not read it.

Or if they have, they missed the sections I thought made my feelings about autism very clear: that I not only support the current rational approaches to the diagnoses and treatment of real autism but have witnessed it firsthand while watching very dear old friends raise a functioning autistic child.

The point of the chapter is not that autism doesn’t exist – it obviously does – and I have nothing but admiration and respect for parents dealing with the issue, including the ones I know.

The bulk of the chapter deals with grown men who are either self-diagnosing themselves with low-level offshoots of the disease or wishing they could as a way to explain their failed careers and troublesome progeny.

Of course, this entire misunderstanding can be easily avoided simply by doing one thing-reading the book.

Taking one or two sentences out of context – especially when it involves an entire chapter devoted to the subject – is unfair and ill-advised.

Too often in this country, everything gets reduced to simple sound bites and very very often those sound bites are not truly representative of an author or artist’s point of view.

Please give me the benefit of the doubt by reading all of what I wrote before attacking me.

Samantha Ronson seeks privacy in her upcoming deposition

Samantha Ronson spins recordings—she doesn’t sit for them.

Lindsay Lohan’s shadow is following in LiLo’s legal footsteps, seeking a court order to prevent her upcoming deposition from being recorded for fear of the footage getting leaked to the media.

Ronson filed a declaration requesting the confidentiality order in her ongoing negligence suit against her former attorney.

“As a result of my friendship with Ms. Lohan, I am constantly followed by reporters, photographers and paparazzi whenever I go out in public,” she said.

“Because of the media’s significant coverage of my activities, I am very worried that anything I say during the course of my deposition in this action will be published by someone in the media and made available to the public to read.”

The celebrity DJ is set to be deposed in her lawsuit against former attorney Martin Garbus, who unsuccessfully represented her in her defamation suit against blogger Perez Hilton. Ronson accuses Garbus of failing to properly represent her throughout the case due to a conflict of interest over payment.

She said in her declaration to the court that she expects to be quizzed by Garbus’ lawyers on her relationship and communications with Lohan, whether she has ever been treated for alcohol or substance abuse, if she has undergone counseling or therapy, her connection to police and her income—all topics she fears would make for a field day for the media.

“These subjects involve extremely private and confidential matters,” she said. “I should not have to worry that anything I say about these subjects during the course of my deposition will be publicized for the world to know.”

Like Lohan’s lawyers requested last week, Ronson is seeking a ban on any video or audio recordings of the deposition and wants the transcript to be kept sealed.

A hearing on the duo’s motions has been set for Nov. 6.

There’s a Peter Cook sex tape

Peter Cook

Diana Bianchi, the other woman in the Christie Brinkley divorce scandal, is speaking out against the reports that there is an alleged sex tape of her and Brinkley’s ex husband Peter Cook.

In an exclusive statement from her attorney, Diana says she was “unaware that he was videotaping their sexual encounters.”

Peter and Christie’s divorce became final in July, amid accusations that he spent thousands of dollars a month on internet pornography and had an affair with a then 18-year-old Bianchi.

The young woman’s attorney, Rosemarie Arnold, tells ET exclusively: “Diana was in a relationship with Peter Cook. It does not surprise her that there are photos of her in his possession. However, she was unaware that he was videotaping their sexual encounters. In my opinion, Peter Cook is a wolf. He went on Barbara Walters in a tie and claimed he was a lamb. But you can put a tie on a wolf, he’s still a wolf. We are weighing our legal options concerning this matter.”

Meanwhile, Christie’s lawyer says “Nothing about Peter Cook’s behavior shocks us. We don’t know anything about this tape. We never saw it and we never heard about it. Christie’s concern is for the sake of her children and she hopes this video is kept private.”
