    A-Rod fans are few and far between these days.

    Chelsea Handler certainly isn’t one of them.

    The comedian and talk-show host held nothing back when offering her thoughts on the embattled Yankees third baseman on Wednesday.

    Handler said on “The Howard Stern Show” on Wednesday that Rodriguez recently approached the actress and asked, “Chelsea, why are you gonna make fun of me all the time?”

    Handler, as expected, wasn’t shy about telling the truth.

    “Get away from me, I think you’re disgusting,” the author told A-Rod.

    She also told the slugger that he’s “gross.” And it didn’t end there.

    The three-time American League MVP said, “Why am I gross?” Handler told Stern. ”We got off on the wrong foot. Why am I gross? I read all your books. I’m a big fan.”

    She wasn’t flattered by the compliment. Her response?

    “I go, ‘Well I don’t know why you’re a big fan,’” Handler told Stern. ”‘I think you’re a f—ing a–hole.’”

    When asked by Stern why the writer and producer despises the 38-year-old so much, her answer was simple.

    “Just the way he conducts himself,” Handler said. “He’s got a centaur of himself in his bedroom. Yeah, him and a horse, combined as one person … Plus he dates all these girls, he just sleeps around. I don’t like guys who cheat on their girlfriends, you know? I’m not into that.”

    She also called the 2009 World Series champion “a buffoon” and revealed that his assistant emailed her assistant on Tuesday, writing “Alex Rodriguez would really like to meet you in person.”

    Handler told Stern that she declined the invitation.

    “That will just make him email me again, because guys like that love to be rejected,” Handler told Stern. “He’s gonna act like, ‘Oh come on, you’re so funny. You’re so funny.’ No, I’m not being funny. I really don’t want to ever see you.”

    Why would anyone care what Chelsea Handler thinks of them? Only A-Rod…

      When you’re as conceited as A-Rod is, the answer is simple: he just can’t imagine anyone not liking him.

      Alex Rodriguez can imagine someone not liking him, the problem seems to be that he has issues with it that most people don’t…

      A young man who I’m well-acquainted with used to participate in a regular card game with Rodriguez in NYC, and has spent some time talking with him… His impression of Rodriguez is that he’s an individual who is very uncomfortable with the thought of someone – anyone – not liking him on a personal level… That observation seems to be consistent with a lot of things you read about him, such as this piece – in fact, Kim Jones said the same thing about Rodriguez on the radio just the other day.

      Some of Rodriguez’s character issues might have a lot to do with the absence of, or abandonment by, his father… Brian Cashman’s father seemed like a pretty decent guy – a longtime friend of George Steinbrenner and Whitey Ford, among others… what’s Cashman’s excuse?
