A-Rod Givin' It to Madge

8/11/2008 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna is getting paid by Alex Rodriguez –- and the timing couldn't be any more, ahem, convenient.

The stray-Rod is actually making a donation to Madge's charity, Raising Malawi, reports Rush & Molloy, to the tune of "at least $500,000." Even though he's going to be shelling out big time to wife Cynthia in their divorce case, he's apparently in a giving mood. Of course, the charity's director says it's a "private thing."

Reps didn't comment.

Bernie -- Intensive for Days


Bernie Mac's condition was much more serious – and he was in the ICU – for much longer than anyone was letting on.

The late comedian, who died early Saturday morning, was admitted to the hospital July 24, a week before his admittance actually was announced. People reports that he had to be put on a ventilator as soon as he got there, and he contracted a second strain of pneumonia while he was there.

Though what eventually felled him wasn't directly related to his chronic sarcoidosis, the condition severely compromised his immune system.

Other Woman Slams Edwards' Wife


John Edwards' mistress Rielle Hunter didn't like the look of Elizabeth Edwards from the very beginning -- or her energy.

She told a Newsweek reporter that Elizabeth didn't "give off good energy" and that she "didn't make eye contact with me" when they met. (Ya think?) Hunter and Edwards already were involved when the two met, but it's unclear whether Elizabeth knew anything.

Hunter apparently thought that John Edwards was a leader on the order of Gandhi.

Any thoughts John Edwards had of ever holding office again, are now in the toilet. What a pig, his wife has incurable cancer and he's out there dipping his wick in some slut he met at a bar?! Then the bitch says, she didn't like the wife, give me a break!

Ms. Hunter doesn't seem to be a good judge of character...John is Ghandi, she is a king maker and Elizabeth is a lump of clay with no energy or eye contact.

Please, next time Ms. Hunter has something to say, ask her to ssshhhhh.

Rielle Hunter needs to shut up and go away. As sordid as this whole thing is, her speaking up is only making it worse. She didn't like Elizabeth right away - could it be because you are a cheating. lying bitch, and Ms. Edwards didn't like your vibe?

GO back to the trailer park....

In pictures when she is pregnant with a black tee-shirt with a heart with a peace symbol in it - she looks just like Camilla Parker-Bowles. If he was going to stray in his marriage - you would think (with his hair) he could get someone a little better than a Camilla look-a-like. Gross!
