    The Knickerbocker Hotel

    I don’t think there is any property in Los Angeles, perhaps the world, that has seen as much glamour and as much tragedy as the former Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood.  Today, the Renaissance Revival/Beau Arts-style structure, which was once dubbed “The Hotel to the Stars,” serves as a retirement home.  And oh, if those walls could talk!

    The Knickerbocker was constructed from 1923 to 1925 and was designed by architect E.M. Frasier.  The 11-story property was the definition of grandeur, featuring wood-beamed ceilings, arched entryways, marble [...]

    About Me

    I am a struggling actress, who like most of America, is completely obsessed with all things celebrity! During my down time, I love finding movie filming locations and my favorite celebs’ homes. Everyone kept telling me I needed to either start a Hollywood tour company or a blog, so here I am. :) I have lived in LaLaLand for over a decade now, during which time I have accumulated a vast knowledge of filming locations from TV shows, movies and reality shows. It’s time I shared that knowledge with the world!

    I am just slightly obsessed with Kristin Cavallari, Michael Buble, and Matt Lanter and I cannot live without a few daily Starbucks’ Iced Lattes and US Magazine.

Santa Fe Depot from “The Trouble with Angels”

It is no secret that I love abandoned places, especially during this time of year.  (What I wouldn’t give to be able to see this in person!)  Recently I stalked Monrovia’s former Santa Fe Railroad Depot and it had my heart going pitter-patter.  The now defunct train station is also a filming location and, while it appeared in a comedy and not a horror movie, due to its current dilapidated state I figured it would fit in perfectly with my Haunted Hollywood postings.

Griffith Park from the “Full House” Opening Credits

Growing up, I was obsessed with ABC’s TGIF series Full House.  Like obsessed!  Because my Uncle Tim lived with my family during my younger years, I related closely to the show – and thought it was insanely cool that I had my very own “Uncle Jesse.”  So I was thrilled when fellow stalker Michael contacted me recently to let me know that he was in the process of hunting down the park used in the opening credits of Full House’s first three seasons.  I had [...]

Sur from “Vanderpump Rules”

Last November, the Grim Cheaper and I became obsessed with the Bravo reality series Vanderpump Rules.  Like obsessed.  We binge-watched the entire first season in about two days.  For those who have not seen the show, it centers around West Hollywood eatery Sur (which is co-owned by The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump) and its drama-fueled staff.  And yes, as strange as it may seem, said staff does actually work onsite at the restaurant.  If you stalk the place, you will see [...]

Pete Duel’s Former House

Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.  That adage rings true for today’s story, about actor Pete Duel who shot and killed himself at his Hollywood Hills home in the early morning hours of New Year’s Eve 1971.  I had Duel’s address written down in the Haunted Hollywood portion of my To-Stalk list, though I cannot for the life of me recall how or where I obtained it.  I am unsure if a fellow stalker gave me the information or if [...]

Be sure to check out today’s Los Angeles magazine post – about the house from Michael Jackson’s Thriller – which is, sadly, my last Haunted Hollywood column for CityThink until next October.  My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.  And you can also check out my friend Owen’s post about a rather hilarious typo on the Thriller house’s Zillow page here.
