CLAY AIKEN: LET'S FORGET ABOUT IT
How come no one is talking about the fact that Rosie O”Donnell blatantly OUTED Clay Aiken? Poor Kelly Ripa is being chastized for her perfectly normal reaction to Clay clamping his hand over her mouth to jokingly “shut her up” on her own TV show. No female TV host WE know of would be okay having a guest clamp his paw over her mouth and having her lipstick smeared on live TV. Granted, Aiken meant no harm – it was just rather tasteless, and Kelly’s gripes about “where his hands have been ” are perfectly normal. But Rosie’s take on the incident – that Kelly’s protest was homophobic – is laughable. In calling the incident “homophobic,” Rosie carelessly (or deliberately?) OUTED Clay Aiken, who has made it clear he wants to keep his sexuality private. WE bet Clay is VERY upset with Rosie for making an issue of this, and wishes it would go away.
