'The View': Clay Aiken, Bret Michaels and 'American Idol'

clay-aiken-the-view.jpg "The View" was chock full of extra goodness on Tuesday, July 13. "American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken was a host and Bret Michaels was a guest.

The highlight of the episode is when Clay Aiken engages in a discussion of children being self-centered and selfish and his observation is, "Some kids are a**holes." The reactions of the other ladies is priceless, particularly Whoopi.

Later on, the ladies and Clay welcome Bret Michaels. After talking about his brain hemorrhage, the talks naturally turn to "American Idol." Bret says he thinks the person who replaces Simon Cowell needs to "be in there for the right reasons." What is this, "The Bachelor?"

Just kidding, Bret! While we think he seems like a great guy, Zap2it is still backing Harry Connick Jr. for Simon's replacement.
