Clarkson was talking about riding a Vespa under the Tuscan sun when Mandel interrupted him by saying, “But you shouldn’t be doing that – it all goes together. It’s Vespa, it’s not Vespa. It’s a Vespa.”
The America’s Got Talent judge” insisted Clarkson made way too much of the second syllable, leading her to reply, “I think what we found out is that we would never date in any area. “
Mandel gave a quick, surprised look with a confused smile and said, “No, I like you. Are you serious?” The former Deal or No Deal host seemed genuinely concerned that he had offended Clarkson.
The “Breakaway” singer laughed and said: “Oh my god no. I would hug you, but I know you don’t like being hugged.” Clarkson was referring to the fact that Mandel is a self-proclaimed germ phobia. He refuses to shake people’s hands and instead punches them. According to Yahoo! newsHe’s even been known to wash his hands for hours at a time due to his obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It’s been like this for most of his life, Yahoo! reports.
Mandel clapped back, “No, I don’t want a hug,” which made Clarkson laugh even more. Mandel, seated on a couch, then suggested they could spoon and turned his back on her. Clarkson slid behind him, sat there for a second, then walked back to her chair, suddenly realizing, “I was just pressing my boobs against you.” Mandel quipped back, “Don’t worry about it. I wear protection,” which got the audience roaring.
Fans appeared to be enjoying the banter and responded positively to Clarkson’s posting of the clip on Instagram (above). A user wrote“The whole thing was so funny I’m still cackling.” Another agreed, Post, “That was hilarious!!! I think I’ve just watched it 10 times.”
one shouted the spectator“Like I couldn’t love Kelly more than I already did 😂.” Another joked, “Moral to the story: wear protection!”
