Johnny Depp finds a nice, quiet place to sleep in Dark Shadows.

Dark Shadows: Angelique Diabolique

The supernatural TV soap gets revamped by Tim Burton.

No Mom Like a Hot Mom

Jimmy Fowler
This makes me giggle: Online voting has just begun for the 2012 Hottest Moms Under 34 and Over 35 contest, sponsored by the Fort Worth-Dallas classic rock station Lone Star 92.5 FM. Do yourself a favor and peruse the photos of ...
