A sharp-eyed tipster directed us to this Kelly Ripa fan site (yes, such things exist) in the wake of Kelly's recent outburst. As the photos above show, Ms. Professional has been known to put her own hands over people's mouths, and receive the same. Maybe Regis is ultra-hygienic, or maybe Kelly isn't bothered by the aroma of Joy Philbin's twat, but our money's on the fact that, yeah, she was afraid of catching Clay. Shame, shame, shame. Also, can we end this scandal now? We wouldn't want Clay Aiken's hand in our mouths either, but only because it's probably touched Simon Cowell at some point.

Update: And here's the inevitable video montage.
