Dick Clark

I can find no evidence that Dick Clark ever met the Holy Father, but he sure does rub elbows with people who are close to the pontiff.  Let's take a "Rockin' New Year's Eve" look at celebrities who Dick knows who know the pope or are close to someone who knew the pope.

Dick Clark and First Degree, Michael Jackson
This post is in the spirit of Janus, the Roman god of the new year.  This god has two faces, one looking back and the other looking ahead.  Let's see who Dick Clark knows who has already been mentioned in the blog or who may be mentioned in 2011.

Dick Clark and Bono: 2 Degrees
As mentioned in a previous post, Bono met Pope John Paul II and gave him so rad shades.

Dick Clark and Nicole Scherzinger: 4 Degrees
A member of The Pussycat Dolls, Scherzinger met Dick as we see her performing at last year's show below.  She also appeared in "Dancing With the Stars" with second degreer, Buzz Aldren as see in this post from October.  

Dick Clark and Betty White: 5 Degrees
Betty White appeared on $25,000 Pyramid, a game show hosted by Dick Clark.  She also appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.  Johnny Carson filled in for Red Skelton when Red was in Europe with his family, see that post here.  Red Skelton and his family met and were blessed by Pope Pius XII.

Dick Clark to Ralph Edwards: 5 Degrees
Dick Clark was on "This is your life" hosted by TV giant, Ralph Edwards in 1959.

Marilyn Monroe
Lovely Marilyn was the girlfriend of President John F. Kennedy.  The Jerry Lewis post in which President Kennedy and Miss Monroe are degrees is here.  President Kennedy met Pope Paul VI, the pope who elevated John Paul II to cardinal.
