Today´s PostA Visit with My BFF
My best friend, Robin, who lives in Switzerland, just arrived in California for a surprise, last-minute visit. I am so BEYOND excited, you don’t even understand! I will be taking the next two weeks off to spend time with him, but will be back on Monday, March 24th with a new post. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out Scene It Before, my weekly L.A. magazine column, here.[continue reading...]

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.
Last Friday, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I set out to do a little Pasadena stalking. Who knew that our day would hold the stalking adventure to end all stalking adventures! ...
Well, it finally happened! Yesterday was the big day! The reality TV event of the season! What I'm sure was for some fans the wedding of the century! I, of ...
My dad is not a big fan of Hollywood. And by Hollywood I mean the industry, not the town. He can't stand all of the overindulged, self-absorbed actors, even though ...
Got one of the most exciting phone calls of my life on Tuesday! A good friend who has an in at the Project Beach House in Malibu called to invite ...
While getting my hair blown out at the Pasadena Blo-Out Lounge (one of my very favorite places) a couple of weeks ago, I caught a portion of the 2011 romantic comedy L!fe Happens, which I had never previously heard of. Thanks to its obvious L.A. locales, the flick piqued my interest. A rom-com filmed in Los Angeles that I didn’t know about? How is that possible? I quickly amended the situation by forcing the Grim Cheaper to watch it on Netflix a few nights later. [...]
My favorite episode of The Wonder Years is Season 5’s “Frank and Denise.” I absolutely love everything about it – the characters of Frank ‘The Stank’ Stanavukovic (Noah Blake) and Denise “The Grease” Lavelle (Amy Hathaway), their relationship, the poetry, and the fact that Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) starts referring to himself as “Calvin Arnold.” All in all, it’s just a perfectly-crafted episode and storyline. So when I saw that the MyTWYYearbook website had tracked down the location of Fatso’s, one of the main locations [...]
As I mentioned in my April post about the Hideaway Saloon (which you can read here), I have been a longtime follower of 90210’s former costume designer Kime Buzzelli on both Twitter and Instagram. Kime is BEYOND sweet and is always happy to answer questions from fans, whether it be about what a character wore in an episode or where a scene was shot. She was even nice enough to share a photograph of a typo that she had taken with fellow stalker Owen for [...]
I just finished reading a fabulous book about one of Hollywood’s first and biggest controversies titled Room 1219: The Life of Fatty Arbuckle, the Mysterious Death of Virginia Rappe, and the Scandal That Changed Hollywood by Greg Merritt. Prior to reading the tome, I knew little about actor/comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, but had always been fascinated by his rape and murder trial, which rocked Tinseltown to its core. I had actually previously stalked two of Fatty’s former West Adams homes after finding their addresses thanks [...]
I have been burning the candle at both ends lately and am finding that between taking care of my dad (which is a full-time job in and of itself), keeping up with my blog and writing for Los Angeles magazine, that there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. So I will be taking Thursdays “off” from now on – well, sort of. My Scene It Before column for L.A. magazine runs each Thursday, so I’ll be writing that in [...]
