Is another Hollywood split imminent? Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are living separate lives and Berry was recently photographed without her wedding ring. The 47-year-old actress, who gave birth to the couple’s first child, Maceo, in October of last year, has not been seen with the French actor, 48, in months. According to The New York Daily News, it may be a geographical issue. Berry is shooting her new CBS series, Extant, in L.A.; Martinez is guest starring in ABC’s Revenge.

Classy digs

A juicy tell-all is uncovering dirty secrets at a ritzy Manhattan condo where disgraced baseball player Alex Rodriguez had a pied-à-terre in 2009, after he separated from ex-wife Cynthia. In House of Outrageous Fortune, Michael Gross talked to the Central Park West building’s residents who were willing to blab about A-Rod’s exploits, which included visits from Kate Hudson (who had to hail her own cab when leaving), Cameron Diaz and, um, others. “He got hookers all the time,” a staffer told Gross. “One time he had two go up, they came down and left, and 10 minutes later, Cameron Diaz walks in. He doesn’t care. I hate the guy. He thought he was God.” A-Rod’s reps have denied the claims.
