When Dick Clark died last week at age 82, several stars shared personal memories of the man called "America's Oldest Teenager."
In the 1980s, Clark worked closely with the then-teenaged Debbie Gibson, asking her to appear on American Bandstand multiple times, and even having her host the American Music Awards in 1989. And after Gibson's teen pop star days were over, Clark remained close to Gibson, tapping her to co-host Dick Clark's American Bandstand 50th Anniversary Collection in 2007.
In an exclusive to PEOPLE, Gibson recalls her bond with Clark.

Deborah Gibson has a secret weapon in her battle to stay fit: her boyfriend.
For a year and a half, Gibson has been dating Rutledge Taylor, a medical doctor specializing in preventative medicine. To help Gibson keep in shape for her busy schedule, he developed a strict diet and exercise program. "I won't say it was easy," Gibson tells PEOPLE, "but it was really effective. He really came up with something that worked for me."
"I thought I had just 5 lbs. to lose," she continues, "But as it went on, I realized that I needed to drop a few more."
The final tally: 17 lbs. "It really gives me a lot more energy to be fit," she says, "and it's also empowering. I'll be 39 soon, and I'm in the best shape of my life."

Deborah Gibson is speaking out about the man who allegedly stalked her earlier this April.
In her restraining order application filed on Tuesday, Gibson, 37, alleges that Bassas Jorge Puigdollers has continually shown up at Gibson's hotel and house. The last straw was when Puigdollers came to her home and knocked on her door.
"That was crossing a line, so that was really scary," she tells PEOPLE. "I am a single female, so I reacted like anyone would and called 911. I'm very good at reacting calmly in the moment, but then I fall apart later."
