Esther coming in hot!
Esther Wojcicki admitted she always knew the fling wouldn’t last – because she didn’t think A. Rod was smart enough for her bb girl.
“I liked A-Rod, he was a very nice man. He seemed to be genuinely in love with Anne. But I right away figured out this was a mismatch. He had no academic background. We couldn’t have an intellectual conversation about anything. His main interest in life was something that none of us had ever focused on, which was baseball. He could park himself in front of a TV and watch baseball for 10 hours a day. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to go on the yacht with Anne because the TV might not be working.”
“I wish J-Lo all the luck in the world. We couldn’t go anywhere with [Alex]. If we went to Target to look for clothes for the kids, all of a sudden we’d be looking around, and people would be saying, ‘We just want a selfie with A-Rod.’ He can’t walk across Central Park. He has to take a cab. That will work better with J-Lo because she’s like, ‘Take a picture of me anytime.'”
As for Anne, she had nothing but good things to say about dating the athlete — aside from her mom’s opinion of him:
“When I started dating Alex, my mom was like, ‘What’s an A-Rod?’ I was like, ‘Mom, that’s his name.’ … Alex is a really sweet guy. He’s a smart guy. He’s a good person. Alex lives in this world of cash-flow businesses, and Silicon Valley lives in this world of the potential of the future. So it was actually kind of a really fun conversation.”
Alex, care to comment??
