Derek Jeter needs to validate parking if he wants to keep his dalliances on the down-low. Such a policy would’ve spared the New York Yankees captain an embarrassing morning-after at Miami’s Shore Club, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
According to the paper, a Page Six source posted in the hotel’s lobby recently spied “two scantily clad women screaming at the front desk because they had spent the night at Jeter's penthouse and were then charged for parking.”
“The girls were wearing what looked like the same clothes they wore the night before — a tight cocktail dress and a miniskirt,” the insider added. “They were making a huge scene because they were asked to pay for parking.”
Apparently, the women didn’t think a night with the infamous ladies’ man was worth forking out the extra dough. The insider overheard Derek’s gal pals yelling on a phone, “After last night, he'd better [bleep]ing take care of it!” Ouch.
It all worked out for the frugal females in the end. “They eventually left happy. I assume (Derek) paid for their parking after all.”
Tara Reid on Paris and LiLo: “Party smart!”
Professional party-girl Tara Reid’s been around the block few (hundred) times, dated Carson Daly, “accidentally” exposed a breast at Diddy’s party and what not. But as she bragged to FHM, she’s never been to jail.
“I had fun, but in America it's bad to have fun, and you get punished for it,” she said in a recent interview with the magazine. “But now there are girls in America like Paris [Hilton] and I start thinking, wait, what made me a bad girl? I've never been arrested.”
In fact, Tara considers her social life tame compared to the current crop of club hoppin’ starlets. “I like to have fun and have people around me,” she said. “I think the reason I never ended up in as much trouble as Paris or Lindsay [Lohan] is that I'm not stupid, so I'd never do a lot of the things those girls do, and I've always had good friends around me.”
According to Tara, these women lack quality companions as well as good old-fashioned common sense “Like, Lindsay makes $15 million a movie, so why doesn't she have a driver?” Tara pointed out. “I don't get it. If you get drunk, that's fine, but don't drive.”
Tara’s tips to Party Girls 2.0? “They need to straighten up a little bit and make better investments. And they should surround themselves with better people who don't let them get themselves in trouble.” Now that’s advice you can take to the bank!

According to the UK Daily Mail, ex-husband Paul McCartney “insisted on a strict confidentiality clause” when negotiations began, but Heather could agree to a smaller multi-million dollar lump sum if she’s allowed to spill the beans on their four-year marriage.
