LENNY DYKSTRA may no longer be playing baseball, but he still likes to take his bat out of the rack.

In December, Lenny was accused of bouncing a $1,000 check to a female escort. In January, he was accused of sexual assault by his housekeeper, who claimed that Lenny had forced her to provide weekly oral sexual favors. The Los Angeles Times quoted her as saying she "needed the job and the money" so she went along with Lenny's requests.

Lenny always could get to third base.

Earlier this month, Lenny sought to hire a new housekeeper. TMZ.com says that when one of the women answered his Craigslist ad, Lenny stripped naked and requested a massage as part of the interview process.

The woman told police that when she arrived at the home, Lenny told her that in addition to cleaning, she would also need to be proficient in massage and he needed to sample her magic fingers.

Alas, the story has no happy ending.

The woman turned down the massage request, left the house, waved down a policeman and hired a lawyer.

Be a fraud, be very a fraud

* Eminem and Royce da 5'9" are back recording together more than a decade after they first joined forces.

The pair, who met in Detroit in 1997 and worked together under the name Bad Meets Evil, announced yesterday that they're coming out with an EP of new material due to drop June 14.

The perfect gift for Flag Day.

One of the songs they recorded in the late 1990s, called "Bad Meets Evil," appeared on Eminem's major label debut, "The Slim Shady LP."

Each of the rappers pursued a solo career after their initial work together and became embroiled in a feud.

Rappers? Feud? Come on.

They patched things up after the shooting death of their mutual friend and fellow rapper Proof in 2006.

"Royce and I started hanging out again and inevitably that led us back into the studio," Eminem said in a statement. "At first we were just seeing where it went without any real goal in mind, but the songs started to come together crazy, so here we are."

* Billboard.com reports that "Weird Al" Yankovic will return to the nation's few remaining music stores with "Alpocalypse," set for release June 21.

Billboard.com says the album will feature the single "Perform This Way," a send-up of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" that was originally rejected by the pop star's management.

Really? We think it was all a publicity stunt.

The album announcement follows a tumultuous last week for Weird Al. He released "Perform This Way" on YouTube and blogged that Gaga rejected his parody after making him present a fully recorded version of the song. After Gaga denied ever hearing or shooting down the parody, Weird Al blogged that Gaga's manager had never presented it to her, and that Gaga had given it the thumb's up.

"I'm thrilled on many levels to hear this," wrote Weird Al, who says that all proceeds from "Perform This Way" and its forthcoming music video will go to charity. "Because 1) I truly respect and admire Gaga as an artist and it pained me to think of her as having less than a great sense of humor, and 2) it means I GET TO PUT OUT MY ALBUM!"


* The latest

Sarah Palin tell-all will come from Levi Johnston - who knew he could read a book, let alone write one? - who is promising to set the record straight about the Palin family.

The title: Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs.

Yikes. That's going to make Thanksgiving awkward.

Levi, as the world unfortunately knows, fathered a child with Sarah's daughter Bristol when they were teenagers - in what became the first and foremost episode of "Teen Mom."

The couple broke up after the birth of their son, Tripp, then reconciled briefly.

Levi says the book will "tell the truth" about their relationship, including his "sense of Sarah and my perplexing fall from grace." He says he's doing it "for me, for my boy Tripp and the country."

Hasn't the country suffered enough?

* An email shows that D.C. police Commander Hilton Burton was unaware that officers provided Charlie Sheen with an escort last week.

In the email to other department officials, obtained yesterday by the Associated Press, Burton demands details about the escort given to Sheen on the way to his performance at DAR Constitution Hall.

Burton wrote that the Sheen incident is an example of why police should be careful about who is given escorts. He also demands to know how it was approved.

Now they're worried about Charlie Sheen getting an escort? He's been getting escorts for years.
