are Clay and Carmen an item?
Are American Idol 2 finalists Clay Aiken and Carmen Rasmusen interested in one another in that special sort of way? According to family friends of Clay’s, he “and fellow contestant Carmen Rasmusen aren’t an item. He likes her—in a protective, older-brother sort of way.” If that’s true, barely legal Carmen and Clay may have a different definition of older-brother sort of ways, at least if you believe these photos: from Wednesday’s episode, there’s an image of them dancing (?), and from an earlier episode, there’s this “hug”.
