Arsenio Hall and Clay Aiken Vie For Victory With Help From Old Frenemies

By Dan Hyman

… For Aiken, who came in second to Ruben Studdard on American Idol back in 2003, there’s a sense of unfinished business. “This time I ain’t gonna lose,” he says. “I will sleep when it’s all over. Until then, game on!”

… The teams break off and hit the ground running. Team Clay, stocked with music-minded members, is going to put on a music-centric event. Aiken’s charity is the National Inclusion Project, a foundation he helped create that aims to help include disabled children with their non-handicapped peers. The team’s motto for their carnival-themed event is “Let’s ALL Play.” O’Day, having been picked last and snubbed by Hall, is out for revenge. “I really think Arsenio is dirt,” she says with a vindictive glimmer in her eye. “I hope Clay wins.”

… With so many contestants now back in the fold, it’d be safe to assume there would be boatloads of crazy drama. Ironically though, there’s almost none. Each former contestant, from O’Day and Giudice planning the respective events to Gibson arranging the music, appears happy to help out. Tempers do flare, however, when Aiken and Gibson go at it regarding a mural for the event that is to be painted by Gibson’s cousin. Aiken says he doesn’t want this to happen unless he can see a sketch of what it will look like. And Gibson? Well, she thinks Aiken is being a micromanaging nutjob. Tears nearly flow.

CBS NEWS – Celebrity CircuitTransparency leaves another contestant behind

By Lauren Moraski

… Making it to the final three wasn’t easy. Aubrey O’Day surprised naysayers by staying in the game as long as she did. The pop singer stayed strong until the end, but on Sunday night, she fell short, leaving it to former late night host Arsenio Hall and singer Clay Aiken to duke it out.

… Both teams hustled to prepare for the final event, with Aiken tapping Gibson to arrange music, and Hall suggesting that Magic Johnson appear in his PSA.

US WeeklyClay Aiken, Arsenio Hall Advance to Finale

By Allison Corneau

… Here’s hoping history doesn’t repeat itself for Clay Aiken.

Earning a spot in Donald Trump‘s final two on The Celebrity Apprentice Sunday, Aiken, 33, will face off against pal Arsenio Hall, 56, for bragging rights on next week’s live finale show.

… “I am not that heavy!” Hall joked, referring to Aiken’s 2003 Idol competitor Ruben Studdard.

… Later, O’Day channeled her anger to help Aiken plan a carnival-themed variety show and 30-second charity PSA, along with Penn Jillette, Debbie Gibson, and Dee Snider.

OMG from YahooCelebrity Apprentice Shocker- Aubrey O’Day Is Fired

By Kim Jacobs Walker

… Donald Trump took a stand for professional behavior this week on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” and shocked a lot of viewers who expected Aubrey O’Day to advance to the finale. The Donald fired her.

… Aubrey, like Narcissus, was too busy admiring her own reflection in the pool of creative ideas she contributed to recognize that others shared in the successes of each project. Aubrey was all about Aubrey. Matlin and Rich found her motivations “transparent,” and her behavior immature.

… Surprisingly, Clay seems to be having a harder time managing his team. Trying to rein in Aubrey’s copious ideas for decorating the venue got him into a lather, which carried over to his interactions with Debbie. Aubrey wanted to paint the walls, which Clay thought was overkill. Debbie tried to help by offering to get her cousin, a professional mural painter, to do the job for them.

  1. I am so glad and appreciative that we can come here and find all the articles about TCA. I will so miss it when the final show airs next week. I am hoping for a Clay win as I think he has for the most part remained civil to each fellow contestant and has worked extremely hard whether he was the team leader or not. I am pulling for him! Go Clay!

  2. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed. Kicking myself 4missing the clay Ruben tour. Didn't know about it. So glad I saw him flipping channels this spring and started tracking him again. Love the YouTube footage. They reminded me of Harvey Korman and Tim Conway or the smothers brothers. Too bad tv could nt televise that show. It would have been great! Clay has raised awareness and funds for so many that I hope many will return the favor. Clay built bridges all along so they might come through. Aubry seems to burn bridges behind her and to some degree so has arsenioover the years.

  3. Thank you for all your articles and photos, they were great and so informative, nervously looking forward to next Sunday's show, I want Clay to win so badly, he's worked so hard to try to win for his charity and he's truly such a great guy in every way, way to go clay!

  4. My favorite happening this whole season was when Clay kissed Audrey and she called herself a CLAYMATE!!! I thought that was to funny. I am so happy that many have been able to see in Clay what we have seem all along…..good luck Clay! COOKIE

  5. Thank you for the articles and photos. I know it's great Clay got this far, but I so want him to win Sunday night.
