Clay Aiken: On Kelly!
The kitchen! The dining room! The private screening room! On tonight's "Insider," we go inside CLAY AIKEN's brand new 9,000-square-foot North Carolina mansion! But the cute crooner not only opens the door to his home -- he also opens up about the now infamous KELLY RIPA incident with WRAL-TV anchor LYNDA LOVELAND.
"I've talked to Kelly since and we've both come to terms with each other," Clay tells Lynda, referring to the scene that recently played out on "Live with Regis and Kelly" when Clay put his hand over Kelly's mouth. "I've apologized to her and she's apologized for any drama that was caused. So we're on perfectly good terms now."
As for the singing sensation's private retreat, Clay admits his biggest obsession seems to be the kitchen.
"Everything has to be ordered and lined up. I'm really very OCD about the kitchen, which is strange because I really can't cook," jokes Clay. "So I don't know how to do anything in here, but everything must be blue or silver."
Meanwhile, his African-themed guest bedroom is filled with souvenirs from his UNICEF tours.
"We've got the mosquito net," says Clay about the netting that serves as a canopy over the bed.
Speaking of guests, Clay has already hosted fellow "American Idol" alumni KELLY CLARKSON and RUBEN STUDDARD.
"They both came over and everyone competed," says Clay. "We had an 'Idol' night. Ruben and Kelly played a pool tournament."
