Something you've always suspected, now confirmed

Clay Aiken's fans are batshit crazy drama queens, and while the North Carolina Court of Appeals didn't say that in so many words, it can be inferred from their opinion in Holleman v. Aiken.

Case summary: Carolina woman notes that the guy who sang at her daughter's wedding is now famous, writes 500+ page hagiography (with the same title as Orel Hershiser's book). Another lady who knew Aiken really well when he was growing up endorsed it. Aiken's mom, fearful of these ladies hitching a ride on the gravy train that is rightfully hers, posts on message boards saying Wedding Mom made the whole thing up. Wedding Mom sues for libel and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Moral: Want to be like Clay and see your dreams come true? All it takes is effort, hope, and ruthlessness.
