Former “Danity Kane” diva Aubrey Oâ€™Day wasn’t skilled enough for Diddy, but it seems she has become pretty skilled at sneaking her friends inside hot Hollywood parties.
Aubrey Oâ€™Day attended the Zen Green Tea Liqueur launch in Hollywood on Wednesday night, where she drank and danced the night away before suddenly pulling out a puppy from her purse. But little Ginger wasnâ€™t the only date Aubrey brought to the bash, she was also accompanied by what weâ€™re told is her girlfriend. Yes, girlfriend.
“Thatâ€™s right,” a pal told Tarts. “Aubrey is out and proud.”

According to other another partygoer, Oâ€™Day was heard happily telling pals about her new girl-on-girl romance. Earlier this week the “Hairspray” starlet showed up to SKY Group’s launch of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip at Highbar and later at NASCAR’s party at Marquee with a woman she introduced as her girlfriend.
Aubrey Oâ€™Day was also pap-snapped locking lips with New York socialite/heiress, Lydia Hearst back in August. Is this the new girlfriend?
I was always under the impression Prince swung both ways, now I guess I am wrong. The singer who has a huge gay following has just told The New Yorker that god doesn’t approve of gay people.
When he was asked about his thoughts on gay marriage and abortion, he “tapped his bible” and said, â€œGod came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, â€˜Enough.â€™ â€
I wonder what that will do for his sales and love from the gay crowd.
Speaking at a gay rights rally in Las Vegas over the weekend she said, “you know, I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn’t feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life.
Everybody that knows me personally they know I’m gay. But that’s the way people should be able to live their lives”
She then went on to speak about California’s Proposition 8 saying, “now, I gotta get in their face. I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay.”
One day after Clay Aiken came out of the closet and told People that he is indeed gay, some celebrities are reacting to the news.
Simon Cowell, who judged Aiken on American Idol tells Extra “wow, that’s a shock. It’s like being told Santa Clause isn’t real — unbelievable.”
Cowell then softened and encouraged Aiken with “Good for him. If he said it, it’s the right thing for him. Good for him.” As for how Aiken’s fans will react, Cowell opined, “I don’t think anyone cares. Let’s face it. It’s 2008. You know, who cares?” Did Aiken really ask Cowell to be the godfather of Parker? “No,” Simon dishes, “I don’t know him well enough, and I think I’d be the last person on Earth he’d call.”
Lance Bass who came out to People back in 2006 is also speaking about the singers coming out.
He tells OK! that “it’s great! I’m so happy he’s finally going to be happy with himself and share that with the world.” He adds “I think that’s so necessary for people to see,” he explained. “It’s good for the world.”

Here’s an exclusive look at the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine, which features Clay Aiken, the former ‘American Idol’ runner-up and his Ellen-inspired admission ‘Yes, I’m Gay.’
For years, the singer has dodged questions about his sexuality, but has now come out for the sake of his newborn son.
Aiken isn’t the first celebrity to come out today. After months of speculation, actress Lindsay Lohan finally divulged that she is datingDJ Samantha Ronson.
Aiken had lashed out at Diane Sawyer during an interview just over two years ago when she asked about rumors of his sexuality. “At some point it becomes really rude,” he said to Sawyer. “I don’t understand why you want to know. I don’t know why it’s any of your business.”
Aiken had also said constant questioning of his sexuality in the tabloids had affected him deeply.
“Even though stuff about me that I read in the magazines isn’t true, it still makes me lose sleep,” he said. “I hurt, not just for my mother who has to watch it happen and who hurts for me. At least when I was in middle school â€¦ I understand why they picked on me.”
Aiken had also refused to come out of the closet to PEOPLE magazine in an interview done the same week as his sit-down with Sawyer.
“What do you say? It’s like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, ‘Did you do this?’ Well, it didn’t matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. People are going to believe what they want.”
Can’t you just hear the “Claymates” now? They became irate at the mere suggestion that Clay was gay… they must be suicidal.
