New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter is opening up about his once-strong friendship with Alex Rodriguez and how it fell apart. At 48 years old, Jeter is telling all aspects of his life and talking about the 20-year Major League Baseball career he spent entirely with the Yankees.

The new ESPN documentary series called The Captain includes many of the off-putting interview statements over the years that led to the erosion of trust between the two baseball superstars.

The Captain | ESPN Documentary on Derek Jeter

Rodriguez and Jeter both came up in the major leagues at a young age–Jeter was called up in 1995 at 20, Rodriguez in 1994 at 18. They were close friends–they would crash at each other’s houses and apartments in the early ’90s.

But what caused their friendship to sour was that 2001 Esquire profile of Rodriguez, where he said Jeter was, “blessed with true talent around him and that he never had to lead.”

Okay, I don’t think Derek liked that. Jeter said those comments bothered him because he’s extremely loyal. He also said he worked hard and would never have said that about Alex. Well, of course, the media kept putting it up there and it just became noise, which frustrated the Yankees captain.

Anyway, he talks about other stuff in the documentary as well, but he says that he really feels bad about how things played out with Rodriguez. Well, now A-Rod is saying he feels bad about it too–let’s hope they kiss and make up.

In other news, Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah has pleaded guilty to federal charges of organizing a $5 million telemarketing scam and praying on hundreds of elderly people. Shah pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The second count of conspiracy to commit money laundering was dropped. 

Shah’s assistant, Stuart Smith, said he also had a part in the same scam and was due to testify against his former employer until she pleaded guilty. The U.S. Attorney’s office says that Shah faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

Good Lord. I don’t know how she’s going to take that, because she is not exactly Martha Stewart. Anyway, the reality star also agreed to forfeit $6.5 million and pay restitution up to $9.5 million. Addressing the court, Shah said she knew she was wrong and is so sorry for hurting so many people, including her husband, children, family, friends, and supporters.
