Say the name Andy Griffith, and you've said something about America.
Griffith, who as Sheriff Andy Taylor on the actor's namesake 1960s TV comedy kept the peace and represented a heartland ideal, died Tuesday, the actor's friend Bill Friday told WITN News. He was 86.
In addition to The Andy Griffith Show, Griffith created a darkly iconic character in the 1957 film A Face in the Crowd and won fans in the long-running whodunit series Matlock. But in the end, it was Mayberry that put him on the map.
From 1960 to 1968, Griffith's kindly sheriff raised a son, Opie, played by Ron Howard, and a hi
What's hot for August? How about our gal-pal Kim Kardashian on the cover of InStyle UK for their August 2012 issue!
The 31-year-old has been all over the place lately, from the BET Awards with her beau Kanye West to being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey.

It looks like Sean Bean is in the clear.
E! News confirms that the 53-year-old Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings star will not face any charges stemming from his arrest in May for allegedly harassing his ex-wife through abusive text messages and calls.
A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police tells E! News that a "53-year-old man attended a Central London police station by appointment on May 9, 2012, where he was arrested on suspicion of harassment and bailed pending further enquiries. He has since been released with no further action."
The law-enforcement official also added that t
We always think of Kate Middleton as a down-to-earth duchess, but in a recent taxi commercial from China, she's portrayed as anything but!
In the satirical clip, a Kate lookalike stands outside with two actors resembling Prince William and Queen Elizabeth. As the trio wait in the rain for a cab, Kate complains, "I just don't understand why we can't take the royal limo. I didn't marry royalty to schlep around in a taxi."
The William impersonator explains, "But darling, Granny is right. The commoners want to see us tightening our belts and all that."
"Rubbish, people want to see that they can
Call her naked?
The Internet was all abuzz on Monday when topless photos rumored to be "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen began making the rounds. But were the pics really of Justin Bieber's 26-year-old protégé?
Well, the young woman in the shots kinda, sorta, maybe resembles the Canadian singer-songwriter.
Hang on to your tops, folks, because this rumor is...
It turns out the lady in question is actually a 21-year-old model named Destiny Benedict.
"Well I just want to say this Carly Rae is a beautiful girl and i'm honored to have been mistaken as her," Bened
When it comes to Tom Cruise's family, the ties that bind seem to be tight ones.
The star's two children with ex Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella Cruise, have so far remained mum following the bombshell news of their father's divorce from Katie Holmes.
Now, Connor seems to be weighing in, taking to Twitter to allude to the news.
But has he taken a side?
"#LaFamilia Always. Friends Come And Go, But Family Is Forever," the 17-year-old implied in a post that he retweeted on Sunday.
Connor has been especially tight with his father—who turns 50 today—these last few weeks, recently
