Aw, poor Clay Aiken.
After taking second place on American Idol and later losing to Arsenio Hall on Celebrity Apprentice, the singer is a runner-up once again.
After a hard-fought race to represent North Carolina's second district, Clay has failed to unseat Renee Elmers.

With roughly 44 percent of the vote compared to the incumbent's 56 percent, Clay could never quite build up the momentum he needed in the largely Republican state.
And to add ignominy to injury, Clay's campaign bus even broke down on Tuesday morning!
We can't think of anything more heartbreakingly symbolic than that!
Oh well! We're proud of you for running a courageous race and trying to make a positive change! For that we say congratulations, Clay.

Money, money, money!
Anni-Frid Reuss, better known as Frida of ABBA, has lost a legal battle against a Swedish resort, in which the singer claimed she invested in the Yantorp Qigong facility by giving them a loan in the amount of $6.9 million.
The owners however, are saying that she did not lend them any money, but actually gave them a very generous donation!!
Reuss insists that it was a loan to help fund the construction of a Buddhist temple at the site.
Unfortunately for her, a judge has sided with the health resort and has also ordered Reuss and her partner Henry Smith to pay $22,500 in legal costs.
Reuss' lawyers plan to continue fighting the case.
Wow. That is one expensive donation if the health resort is telling the truth!!
