Dick Clark is one of the most beloved icons of American television. But was his American Bandstand a hotbed of sexual and racial discrimination?
That's the claim made some inside sources, including stars of the show!
According to a new report, Mr. Clark made a point of ferreting out any gay regulars and throwing them off the show!
Bandstand regular Eddie Kelly tells a similar story of quiet oppression. He says:

We’re not sure which sparkled brighter — the Times Square ball drop or Miley Cyrus’ outfit!
The Adore You singer hit the stage at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in NYC on Tuesday night, looking ready to end the year with a bang!
Mileybird was ab-solutely fabulous in her sequined gold crop top and skinnies by The Blonds, which she accessorized with an enormous fur coat!! Now that's taking it to the next level (though we do hope it's faux)!!
And for her final touch, she even threw on a pair of white Versace heels.
With an outfit this fierce, we bet new boo Kellan Lutz approved!!
P.S. CLICK HERE to check out her killer performance!!!

Fergie has been looking preggers since September, and while the speculations keep flying around the Twitterverse, she kind of does look PREGNANT.
The Black Eyed Peas singer hosted Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve '13 show on Monday, and even though she didn't look like she was with child in the yellow dress she wore… she did seem to have a bump once she changed into her bronze metallic frock!
Hmmm. We're thinking she's holding out on the HUGE news, but until she reveals that her little tummy is a BABY, then we're just gonna have to keep on
stalking checking her out!! LOLz
Take a look-see at the video (above)! Do U think she's preggers?!?

To say New Year's Eve was rocking with stars is an understatement to say the least!
That's why it's called New Year's Rockin Eve, silly! LOLz!
In the first celebration without the beloved Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy hosted the annual event in Times Square.
And the list of performers was PHENOMENAL!!!!
Led by Taylor Swift (when she wasn't kissing Harry Styles!), PSY (with new bestie MC Hammer), and Carly Rae Jepsen, stars came out from all over to help celebrate the new year as well pay tribute to the late Clark.
Even Mayor Bloomberg got into the action with Rockettes!!!!!!!
Check out the AHMAZING pics from last night's celebration and Happy New Year, everyone!

10, 9, 8, 7…. Aww, New Year's Eve just isn't the same without him!
Only hours away from ushering in 2013 without Dick Clark as his wingman, Ryan Seacrest doesn't know precisely how to feel.
Speaking candidly with Good Morning America, Ryan explored his thoughts on tackling the Times Square ball drop all by his lonesome!

Death is a sad fact of life.

Rest in peace and THANK YOU ALL for the countless hours of entertainment you've provided for us over the years!

There are very few people in the industry that didn't feel the loss of Dick Clark last week. However, those who knew him best were hit that much harder, and Dolly Parton is one of the celebs to really feel his passing.
Upon hearing of his death, Dolly release a poignant statement about the icon. She not only reflected on the impact Dick had on the world, but also the influence he had on her life — and her heart!
Dolly reminisces about Dick, saying
No one could have been nicer, classier nor better looking than Dick Clark. I've had a crush on him since I was a teenager. But much more than that, who in this world has done more for the music industry? He will always stay young and special in the minds of all of us. May you rest in peace.
Aww! That's touching!
We bet he was sweet on you too, Dolly. Who wouldn't be, really!
