Morning Television Makes For Strange Bedfellows
Clay Aiken, Kelly Rippa and Rosie O'Donnell. Not exactly the first names that come to mind when you think of a threesome, yet these three are indeed linked this week to some tawdry gossip. It appears that Clay filled in for Regis as co-host this week on his show with Kelly Ripa. Clay, in an attempt to stifle Ms. Ripa, playfully put a hand over her mouth. She snapped back to put that hand away as she had no idea where it had been (it is flu and cold season afterall). Enter ABC's resident big mouth, Rosie O'Donnell, who quickly accused Kelly of being homophobic. Kelly, called her on it stating that it didn't matter whose hand it was, it contained the germs of audience members whose hands had touched his (Clay's). It's more likely that Kelly is germaphobic than homophobic, but one thing's for sure; the person who needs to be shushed is Rosie, not Kelly!
