Clay Aiken Discusses Interviewing Trump Supporters for ‘The View’ – “I played the same arena he was in when I toured with Kelly. They were playing video before he came out, and they had announcements and people cheering and chanting. I remember how fun it is to have that many people cheering for you, and have an arena full of noise shouting for you,” Aiken tells Billboard. “That’s all this is for him. He just loves having throngs of people. He actually said that night, ‘We broke all records for attendance at this arena,’ and while he was saying it, right above his head was a second tier full of empty seats.” – Read more at Billboard

Carrie Underwood gets real about motherhood: ‘I love that our house is a mess’ – Throughout the tour, Underwood also had the honor of meeting a number of military families and as a way to cap it all off, she will be performing for over 700 military families aboard the new Carnival Vista in New York on Nov. 4 in a private concert for Operation Homefront. “It’s so great to honor these military families because they’re often far away from each other for a long period of time,” said the songstress. “To give them this time together is just so special. I’m very lucky.” The Season 4 “American Idol” winner admitted she’s lucky to be able to bring her son, 1-year-old Isaiah Michael Fisher, on the road with her. “I’m fortunate because I get to have my little guy with me,” she said. “I was so concerned about going on tour and how it was all going to work. How am I going to be a mom? How am I going to do what I do? He’s learned how to hang with us and keep up. It’s been really wonderful having him out on the road.” – Read more at Today

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Says He Has ‘Zero Interest’ in Returning to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Next Season – “I’m going to have a newborn baby. I have zero want to do this. I promise you that,” he explains. “It’s been it for me two years ago. I never thought I’d be back here in this position. I’m glad I am. I promise, I’m so glad that I made this decision.” “The baby comes in January and then a month-and-a-half later I would have to be in L.A. to start training with somebody else,” he continues. “Trust me, I really don’t care how this comes across, but there’s no money on the planet that can replace me missing out the three, four, five months of my baby’s life. Zero chance. I can’t wait for all of this, diapers, and all of this stuff. I can’t wait for Peta to pursue her goals and whatever and I just want to be a stay-at-home dad.” – Read more at ETOnline.com
