"Not one word of those stories is true. I never before in all my married life together ever went away without my husband or family. Not once in 13 years. I did not spend one dollar shopping in Paris. I did not go to super-fancy expensive restaurants. I did not go to any spa. I didn't do one thing. I spent the most innocent four days with my children's godparents, who are as close to us as family. My husband and I were already into our problems and I didn't know where to go, what to do. I needed to think. To clear my head. Mine's a close-knit family. Never one divorce on my side. My parents, aunts, uncles are devastated." Cynthia Rodriguez 7/10/2008
"Times are a bit difficult. But I've been through tougher times. I'll get through them. And the support of the New York fans is incredible." Alex Rodriguez 7/14/2008

[We should share] wealth, health, education and religious upbringing [for the children]...[She is a] loving and nurturing mother." Alex Rodriguez 7/31/2008
