A Las Vegas stripper has been identified as the mystery blonde photographed with New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.
The New York Post reported Friday that Joslyn Noel Morse, 30, who most recently performed at Scores, 3355 Procyon St., was with Rodriguez last week when the two were photographed on their way to a strip club.
Morse worked at Scores from May 2005 to last October, a source told me.
The Post ran a Page 1 photo of Morse from her topless shoot that appeared in Playboy's October 2001 edition of "Casting Calls."
Rodriguez is married and was seen with his wife on Thursday night in Boston.
FLOWERS: 'SO MUCH JEALOUSY'
Brandon Flowers, frontman for The Killers, says it's "pathetic" that some of the group's early local followers have turned on them.
The indie crowd that once packed small clubs like Tramps to embrace The Killers has moved on, he said.
"There's so much jealousy that goes on in Las Vegas about what we've done. And it's kind of a shame," he told free-lance writer Steve Friess, who co-hosts thestrippodcast.com with Miles Smith.
"We'll sell out the show, but a lot of the people are going to be from L.A. It's pretty pathetic," Flowers said in an interview before The Killers' concert at the Hard Rock Hotel on Friday. "It's a common thing for people in your hometown to kind of shy away.
"The people who filled Tramps up, those people aren't going to be in the front as they were before we sold any records. They're going to be bitching about it on blogs."
