GUESS girl Amber Heard is back for another season!
For spring, the saloon girl and cowboy headed west to romp around the sand and sea.

Hollywood has lost another legend today.
Sherwood Schwartz, the creative mind behind such iconic shows as The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island, has passed away at the age of 94.
He apparently died from natural causes at home in his sleep, surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Such an amazing man.
Our thoughts go out to all of his relatives, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time. We imagine his legacy will live on for years to come.
May he R.I.P.
