These days everything's all Scotty McCreery, but we haven't forgotten the original local 'American Idol' golden boy, one Mr. Clayton Aiken.
So here's a little scoop for the Claymates out there: Clay will be a guest star in the third season premiere episode of 'Drop Dead Diva,' a great little drama that airs on Lifetime.
The 'Drop Dead Diva' episode rips a story from the headlines by having the show's heroine, Jane (Brooke Elliott), defend a girl who was banned from her high school prom because she wanted to take her girlfriend. Clay will be in a different storyline, though, playing a witness in a case about a mail order bride scam.
The episode also features actors Lance Bass and Amanda Bearse.

The season premiere of 'Drop Dead Diva' is scheduled for June. We'll keep you posted on that and on Clay's appearance.
