I bet JC Chasez could give Clay Aiken some ideas about how to use an oversized turnip. [Celebslam]

Ivanka Trump reminds us that she is nothing like Paris Hilton. Which is true, because Paris Hilton doesn’t need to name-drop Ivanka Trump in order to get people writing about her. [A Socialite’s Life]

You don’t need photographic evidence to assure yourself that Britney’s a dirty whore. But, admit it, you want it anyway. [Cele|bitchy]

The Ruse is Up, Clay

January 27, 2007

Not that most of us were buying into it to begin with, but one of Perez Hilton’s spies caught Clay Aiken red-handed (and with four fingers up) in the act of soliciting sex on a gay hook-up site. Check out a copy of the chat and the pictures.

While I’ve never been a huge supporter of Perez’s decision to out celebs, the case on Clay has been pretty clear for awhile. It must be horrible to have to hide your sexual identity like this — I mean, if you’ve convinced yourself it’s reasonable to trust random dudes on some Internet hook-up site with your fame and sexuality, you’re really desperate for some lovin’. Just come out of the closet, Clay! Score the cover of People magazine. Hit up some gay bars! Get laid!! You deserve it!!

Rosie, Ripa, Aiken All Non-Sexually Kiss and Makeup

November 22, 2006

That’s a weird math equation. Clay wouldn’t do either Ripa or Rosie, Rosie would probably put the hammer down on Ripa, but I’m guessing Ripa would pass on Mr. “McUseMyHandsBecauseICan’tThink” (that may be the longest McFakeLastName joke ever, EvilB let’s put an intern on researching that).

Anyway, the news from The View is that everything is fine and could we please move on to talking about Babwa Wa-Wa’s wisp again?

Walters said:

“This is what I want to say. Rosie O’Donnell is one of the kindest, most sensitive people I know. And so is our friend Kelly Ripa. And Rosie and Kelly talked yesterday after the show. Rosie and Clay Aiken have talked. And all is well with the world, and all is well with them. So let’s move on.”

Hmm. Rosie may indeed be kind, in fact I fondly I remember that one day she brought me lunch without my even asking, but I’d take a bit of umbrage at that “sensitive” label. Unless sensitive means butting your nose into other people’s affairs and then totally screwing someone over whom you’re professing to defend. Then, by all means, she’s as sensitive as all get-out.

Clay Aiken vs. Kelly Ripa: ROSIE WEIGHS IN

November 21, 2006

Check out the footage. Says Rosie: “If that was a straight man, if that was a cute man, if that was a guy that she didn’t question his sexuality, she would have said a different thing. To me that’s a homophobic remark.” (This is based on Ripa telling Aiken that she didn’t know where his hands had been — after he suddenly put his hand on her mouth). See, I agree with Rosie about the cute man part — Brad Pitt can put his hands inside my mouth, or really wherever he wants, no need to ask permission — but anyone else — gay, straight or Clay Aiken — is going to take some heat from me if they stick their hand on my mouth. Ripa phones in to say just that.

Many are saying that Rosie — intentionally or unintentionally — “lanced” Clay Aiken (meaning she outed him — the term comes from Lance Bass being outed by comments his boyfriend made). I mean, I think we’re all aware that Aiken’s gay, but he seems dead set on staying in the closet, and if anyone crossed the line o’ respect in all this, I think it was Rosie.

Midday Mess: Kate & Owen Sittin’ in a Tree

September 20, 2006

  • For the eight of you who are still watching the actual SNL rather than the newer, hipper, Sorkin’d-out Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, you’ll be sorry (or perhaps not) to hear that the annual bloodletting at the Lorne Michaels antiquity means the show will say goodbye to Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz and Finesse Mitchell.
  • In honor of what would have been Jerry Orbach’s 71st birthday, TNT will spend October paying tribute to the late actor by airing every Law & Order episode graced by his unique brand of utter awesomeness.
  • American Idol‘s Clay Aiken talks to Good Morning America about how he reluctantly decided to begin taking anti-depressants, because that discomfort and fear he feels in his own skin is, obviously, the result of a chemical imbalance, and not at all related to a huge part of his identity he plans to hide from everyone at any price.
  • After an ear-whisperin’ evening at Chateau Marmont and Les Deux, Kate and Owen must be official now. Us Weekly is asking you to name them, so you know it’s for real.
  • Whatever The View is paying Rosie O’Donnell, she should demand they double it. Today, Rosie keeps the whinefest on our radar by honing her gaydar on Oprah & Gayle King.
  • Don’t feel too bad about your crazy-ass, shoe-assaultin’, cartoon-drawin’ pops, Lindsay Lohan — Jessica and Ashlee’s dad is a total headcase, too.

Putting It All in Perspective

August 23, 2006

Notable album rankings from today:

1. Christina Aguilera, Back to Basics [I LOVE YOU XTINA!]
2. Danity Kane, Danity Kane [Yup, that’s Diddy’s all-girl group from yet another interminable cycle of Making the Band. Today, as the title says, we are putting things in perpective.]

7. Dixie Chicks, Taking the Long Way [Didn’t that one lead singer chick say something mean about Texas? Or the Pope? It was something like that.]

10. Clay Aiken, A Thousand Different Ways [insert multiple-penetration joke here]

12. Justin Timberlake, FutureSex/LoveSounds [tell us again about those talentless AmIdol hacks, JT, and do it without using any spaces!]

24. Kidz Bop, Vol. 10

28. High School Musical [Amazon has Ashley Tisdale listed as the artist, but I refuse to condone that here.]

32. Cheetah Girls 2 Original Soundtrack [even better than the first Cheetah Girls soundtrack!]

and at #33:
Paris Hilton, Paris.

To her credit, she’s been climbing this chart all day, but when your album’s stalling out three times as far down as Clay Aiken on pre-order, something didn’t go exactly to plan.

If it makes you feel any better, Paris, Jessica Simpson’s A Public Affair promises to remain comparatively private, hanging out at the #75 position this afternoon.
