We slept with the light on for most of the ’90s, and we blame Are You Afraid of the Dark. Allegedly aimed at kids, the classic Nickelodeon show featured some of the most genuinely terrifying on-screen moments that we’ve ever seen to this day! Our impressionable young minds were probably permanently warped by the nightmare inducing scenes…but we loved every single minute of it and never missed an episode. With Halloween just around the corner, we’d decided that enough time has passed and we’re finally ready to revisit some favorite spooky episodes that have haunted our psyche for two decades. Our therapist says it’ll be good for us!
So now, submitted for the approval of the VH1 Celebrity Society, are our picks for the ten most frightening episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark. Head down below to check ‘em out! You’ll laugh at the goofy ’90s style, and you’ll cry at the horror-filled memories you’ve been repressing all this time. Go on. You didn’t want to sleep tonight, anyway…
Jocks like Shaun White, Terrell Owens, and Reggie Bush were treated to a plethora of eye candy on the red carpet of the ESPY Awards last night. There was a lady of every flavor worthy of walking hand-in-hand with a world-class athlete.
Fancy married swimsuit models? Marisa Miller was in full bombshell mode in a slinky black dress. Prefer rising actresses unafraid of wearing nothing but body paint? Twilight‘s Ashley Greene had her toned thighs ablazin’ in all red. What about that crazy outfit-wearing ex-girlfriend of Kanye West? Amber Rose was at her most elegant in a canary yellow gown. Do none of these ladies fit the future wifey bill? We’ve got Emmanuelle Chriqui, January Jones (Adrien who?) and Erin Andrews in the gallery below.
We’ve always been critical of Kara DioGuardi on American Idol because she tends to mug for the camera and flirt obnoxiously and basically act like an unpleasant person, despite her knack for writing catchy pop songs. Basically she rubs us the wrong way, which is why it grosses us out to see her pose for Maxim wearing next to nothing and now, posing for Allure in literally nothing. Perhaps what freaks us out most about this shot is that to us it looks like she’s in diaper-changing pose, her bare, waxed butt is just so IN OUR FACE. DioGuardi explained that her photo session “was less about beauty than about taking a risk and showing people a side of me they have never seen.” Indeed.
And we’re all for tastefully done nude shots, by the way – the accompanying photos, seen here on the Allure site, of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jessica Capshaw, Regina Hall and Colbie Caillat don’t bother us one bit. We might have to address our DioGuardi issues with a therapist soon, it’s becoming a problem.
Claire Danes‘ titular performance in the HBO biopic of ausitic author/professor Temple Grandin marks her first TV credit since the classic ’90s teen drama My So-Called Life—not that the actress looks anything like sweater-crazed high school sophomore Angela Chase today. Wearing a short black strapless dress and a bright red belt, Danes was joined at the film’s premiere by co-stars Julia Ormond and Catherine O’Hara, as well as Hayden Panettiere, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Cynthia Nixon and Grandin herself. Check out their red carpet fashions in the gallery below.

The couple, who got engaged in 2008 in Hawaii, celebrated their first dance together to the Hawaiian artist Israel Ka’ano’i Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” No dance-offs were reported during the reception. [Source: E! Online; Photo (not of the ceremony): Getty Images]
