Six degrees of Van Patten

I was cruising IMDB last night after watching Joyce Van Patten in a Columbo episode. I never realized how broad the Van Patten reach is. Joyce was married to Martin Balsam. Their daughter is Talia Balsam, who was married to George Clooney and now to married to Mad Man's John Slattery. Joyce's brother, of course, is Dick Van Patten, whose daughters-in-law are daytime actress Eileen Davidson and Nancy Valen, whom I remember from Ryan's Hope. Her bff according to IMDB is Yasmeen Bleeth. I'm having a difficult time wrapping my head around all of this. I mean, the idea of Eileen Davidson sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner with John Slattery. I can't. I just can't.
