Rosie Vs Kelly vs Clay

Clay Aiken stepped in for Regis on Friday to co-host with Kelly Ripa. At one point during an interview, Clay puts his hands over Kelly's mouth. Kelly made it very clear she felt it was inappropriate. Rosie O'Donnell reacts and says she thought Kelly was "homophobic" and "a little odd." The women duke it out on The View and after hearing Kelly's response I have to say I can't blame her. Who wants someone's hands touching their mouth? I just think Clay was not thinking. It's not like he has ever really had hosting duties and he is a bit immature in the entertainment world anyway.

Besides, Rosie basically outs Clay anyway. She said, "To me that's a homophobic remark. 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." So what do you think?

And may I add that IF Rosie IS such a PROUD GAY WOMEN IN THE COMMUNITY then why is she making scenes in NIP/TUCK having sex with MEN?? Just curious.

I personally think that Rosie just wanted some attention. No one ever said anything about that being a homophobic remark. Not even Clay and it seems to me that out of all ppl HE would be the one to mention it if he was offended.Plus Rosie just totally said that Clay was GAY and not even Clay has admitted to that yet.. I bet Clay HATES Rosie now and cant wait to go back on her show to put his hand over her mouth. lol. I wish I could shake 10 total strangers hands and go put my hand over Rosie's mouth and see how she likes it.. Rosie, NOT everyone is against Gay People when will you realize that? Im bisexual and if someone put their hand over my mouth I dont care who you are what color you are or who you have sex with I would knock your hand off of my mouth that was disrespectful to kelly and I think it is wonderful that she took up for herself. And as for Rosie I wish she would just keep her stupid remarks to herself. She made herself look like trash on national television taking up for someone that she didnt even talk to first (clay). Go home Rosie NO ONE LIKES A LOUD MOUTH SHIT STARTER!!

I love the fact that Rosie of all people "outed" Clay, when she was the original "don't ask don't tell" of American Closeted Celebs. As a gay man, the very idea that this has gripped the American media is the silliest "news" item of recent memory! Clay is the new Paul Lind! Everyone just finds him so special and different, cannot wait for the year 2050 when he is dressed in fur and sparkles entertaining the blue rinse crowd in Vegas...or Branson

I don't think Rosie should have basically outed someone on TV who hasn't even admitted to being gay. It probably wasn't the best phrase for Kelly to use because of how it can be taken.

Good point ohilovemybabies. Love your avatar. Kelly covering Regis's mouth with her germ encrusted hand. She is constantly touching people and cutting people off, two things Clay was doing to her. Do I think it was a homophobic remark? No. I think Kelly's ego was bruised because she had her mouth covered on live tv on HER show. Hey kettle, pot's calling. And way to go Rosie for shoving little Clay out of the closet. The poor boy has obviously been trying to hang onto any tiny schnipple of heterosexuality for the last couple of years and here you are, a gay celebrity who should have a little empathy in the situation yelling about his sexuality like it is fact rather than speculation. He is probably so over Kelly now and trying to figure out what to do with your big pie hole.

I don't like her at all. I also don't like Rosie and I don't mind clay ,he seems like a nice person .. Maybe he should not have put his hand over her mouth but, maybe she should have let him speak...

Oh, give me a break! For those of you who side with Ripa ... have you ever even WATCHED the Regis & Kelly show? Kelly Ripa talks non-stop; even Regis can hardly get a word in. Thank God someone finally put a hand over her mouth. The whole germ thing is just some pathetic excuse she's using to try to cover up the fact that she was being a self-centered b****.

Everyone has the right to their personal space. I don't care who is doing it, gay, straight, guy, girl, famous or not, if you don't want them touching you anywhere, then it is okay to make it known.

It wasn't just Rosie dragging it out and making a big deal about it. Kelly was going on and on about it on her show this week as well.

i agree with the woman sitting next to rosie, clay would of never put his hand over regis's mouth like that, he was completely disrespectful to kelly. and then rosie comes from left field and says kelly is homophobic, and clay hasnt even come out of the closet! i dont even really like kelly but i am proud that she stood up for herself :JAWDROP:

Sabletron...hands pass germs all the time! Think about what you do with your hands every single day, and then think about what everyone else does with their hands. Sticking your hands across someone else's mouth is extremely un-hygenic, not to mention just plain rude. At least if you shake someone else's hand you can wash your hand afterward or use an alcohol gel, however if someone puts their dirty hand on your mouth those germs are in your system ASAP.

This is insane! I agree with all of you who think Kelly was perfectly acceptable in sayin "that's a no no- I don't know where those hands have been." I interpreted that as being her way of getting her point across while still being friendly and a little bit jokey. That would have made anyone angry! Rosie is just plain stupid and being a b!tch to accuse Kelly of homophobia. Clay and Rosie were BOTH out of line.

Clay completely disrespected Kelly. Kelly handled it professionally (I wouldn't want anyone touching my mouth either, regardless of gender or sex orientation). And Rosie took it personally and that was wrong of her to react and jump to conclusions like that. I don't like Kelly Ripa, but for once, I side with her. I think Clay Aiken needs to just give entertainment a goodbye.

Kelly got embarrassed. He was a guest on HER show and he embarrassed her. Plain and simple. It's like when people tell me to shut-up, it hurts my feelings and embarrasses me. So I totally get where Kelly is coming from.

Ellen, Melissa Etheridge, Lily Tomlin, etc. All lesbians. Notice how they spend their time living their lives, not on fanatical un-closetting and spewing homophobia accusations. Do you remember that it was Ellen who came out in real life and on her sitcom not too many years ago? Ellen is a revolutionary. She's changed A LOT on the media's portrayal of gays and lesbians. Do you see Ellen out on some crazy agenda? No. Rosie defines her self solely by her sexuality and must have major insecurities about her sexuality.
