Clay Aiken Has Nothing To Say To Kathy Griffin
It's probably a safe bet to say that Clay Aiken won't be one of the celebrities who pops up on the upcoming season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.
That's because Clay apparently doesn't want to have anything to do with Kathy, E! Online's Marc Malkin reports.
Kathy, who famously referred to Clay as "the Gayken" in her standup act long before he came out, tells Marc that she wanted to make good with Clay and decided to go for it when they were both backstage during the broadcast of Rosie Live! "I held up one of those ghetto blasters playing one of Clay's songs, and I begged him to take me back and he said no," Griffin says. "And then I walked out of the room, and Gloria Estefan said to me, 'I told ya. You shouldn't have gone in there alone.' "
Kathy expected Clay would be grateful to her for helping to push him out of the closet that he had been cowering in for so many years. But Clay was clearly not on the same page. "There were no words of thanks or even really any words at all for that matter," Kathy shares. "I would have to say he was not very nice."
Oh, Clay. Have a sense of humor. It wasn't like Kathy was the only person stating the obvious all of these years. Did you really think you were fooling anyone but the most in-denial Claymates? Meanwhile, there are plenty of gay people who are mad at you for making being gay seem like something to be ashamed of in this day and age.
So loosen up, buddy, and embrace Kathy. She is probably one of the few people involved in the gay community who wants to be friends with you these days!
That's my two cents.
What do you think of Clay's decision to snub Kathy?
