On the podcast this week: the BeyoncÃ©-Jay-Z wedding, Mariah Carey’s chart-topper, and Denzel’s next movie.

Why would a celebrity choose North Salem as a place to live and open a restaurant? What’s a downside to living with Clay Aiken? And what does it feel like to know you’ll be singing your new song on the “American Idol” stage during this week’s results show?
These questions in an exclusive Suburbarazzi interview with “Idol” contestant Kimberley Locke were the ones to make the cut for tonight’s extra-special segment on RNN. Later this week, we’ll post my uncut interview, including a reference to Kim’s stint on “Celebrity Fit Club.” (Although that version will be uncut, don’t exactly expect a Jerry Springer routine from Kim and me, though. We’re not like that. On camera, anyway.)
It’s hard to believe that the Clay-vs-Kelly-vs-Rosie feud has a longer shelf life than my Thanksgiving turkey, but, lo and behold, there’s more news to report:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ In case you missed the whole controversy — over whether Kelly was being germophobic or homophobic or Commerce Bankophobic when she bitched about Clay Aiken covering her mouth on air — you can watch a tidy recap of last week’s on-air events courtesy of this Gawker YouTube video.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ A Kelly Ripa fan site (which also doubles as a litmus test for the mentally unstable) posted a YouTube video of good ol’ Reeg sticking his filthy digits all over Kelly’s face, and her repaying the favor. Now, I’ve seen Regis slopplily eating hotdogs at Costco in Port Chester and can tell you this much: If you don’t like where Clay’s hands have been, Philbin’s mustard covered digits aren’t any better.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ While South Nyack’s Rosie O’D has since been forced by Barbara Walters to shut the hell up about Kelly and stop accusing her of being homophobic (Babs declared the feud “over” to People), Aiken went on the offensive, grabbing Tori Spelling’s boobages at the AMA awards. Which would have been an effective message … if the AMAs weren’t so overly gay.
