Waaay back in 2014, American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken ran for Congress in his native North Carolina. Despite votes from 85,479 horned up Claymates, Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers whooped Clay’s ass with 58.8% of the vote and continued to represent North Carolina’s 2nd district in the House of Representatives. Seven years later, and Clay is once again trying his (“disgusting,” according to Kelly Ripa) hand at politics!
Yesterday CBS announced the long-awaited third season of Celebrity Big Brother U.S., and die-hard BB fans are already gossiping about which “celebrities” will join the cast. Guesses include Kellyanne Conway, Clay Aiken, Tiffany Pollard, Boston Rob from Survivor, and recently fired Vanderpump Rules cast member Jax Taylor. A bunch of reality TV has-beens, Tiffany Pollard, and a member of the Trump administration? Sounds completely correct.
Meghan McCain Is Still Mad At Kathy Griffin For Making Jokes About Clay Aiken, But Clay Aiken Seems To Be Good
Every once in a while Meghan McCain does something that reminds me she does actually have a friend who could ask her, “Do you really want to do that with your hair?“, and this time she’s dragged her friend Clay Aiken into a situation he didn’t ask to be dragged into. On The View this week, Meghan took a swipe at Kathy Griffin, in response to Kathy’s recent lung cancer diagnosis reveal. Meghan is still very mad that Kathy made jokes about Clay’s sexuality years ago. Well, Meghan maybe should have run that all by Clay first, because Clay himself sent a message of love to Kathy.
Rosie O’Donnell And Clay Aiken Have Different Recollections Of The Kelly Ripa “Homophobic Hand” Incident
Ramin Seetoodeh, author of the upcoming Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of “The View” is going to land a Lipton Tea sponsorship in 3, 2, 1, because dude is spilling piping hot, lemon-tinged, sweet tea all over. In his upcoming tell-all about ABC’s morning harridan factory, he gets into the time Live with Regis and Kelly’s Kelly Ripa questioned where her guest co-host Clay Aiken’s hand had been when he jokingly put it over her mouth. Afterward, and back over at The View, Rosie O’Donnell labeled Kelly Ripa’s remark as “homophobic” while inadvertently outing Clay. In Us Weekly’s excerpt, Rosie and Clay have some story straightening to do because they both recall what happened before and after somewhat differently.
Those poor White House staffers. First, they have to deal with all the email fall-out from Donald Trump Jr. this week, and now they’re sitting around knowing a “The only thing ‘Invisible’ about FAILING Clay Aiken is his career. I was always team Velvet Teddy Bear. #RubenStuddard” tweet is probably brewing from the West Wing.
The beginning of the end of American Idol happened last night and I completely forgot it was on (so did everybody else), but Clay Aiken didn’t. America’s second most famous ginger power lesbian (Rojo Caliente being the first, duh) and the almost-congressman delivered brand new information when he said on Twitter that the show is now a lifeless puddle of boring and he now knows why the ratings have fallen like early-aughts Paula Abdul after drinking too much Vicodin and Valium tea.
Some of us old, wrinkly, white pubes-having whores who watched American Idol in the olden days miss the train wreck singers, the cunty-wrapped nuggets that flew out of Simon Cowell’s mouth and Paula Abdul being a pilled-up mess. Clay misses those days too and while watching the three drips, JLo, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban, judge the singers last night, he let out a huge yawn on Twitter.
