Getting Carried Away!

May 31st, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Break out the cosmos and the couture because today is the big day – the day Sex and the City: The Movie opens! Let me tell you, I could not be more excited!!! Hopefully I can manage to drag my boyfriend out to see it tonight, but I have yet to even broach the subject with him. Anyway, I thought I’d do a little SATC post today in honor of the big premiere.
My family’s favorite restaurant in NYC is a little place called […]



Mansion Bel Aire

May 29th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few weeks ago, while searching for the Fresh Prince of Bel Air house, fellow stalker Kerry told me about a mansion in Glendale that she calls the “Tara House” that she thought might be the home used in Fresh Prince. So, of course I had to run right out to stalk it. It wasn’t the FP home, but I was so happy to have stalked it anyway as it is an absolutely ginormous mansion that I never would have found otherwise. Thanks, Kerry!

According to […]



Twain’s – The Pancake Restaurant from “A Lot Like Love”

May 28th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Lately I have been obsessed with finding the Chinese food restaurant from one of my fave romantic comedies, A Lot Like Love. While I have yet to find that restaurant, I did stalk two of the others featured in the movie. Towards the middle of A Lot Like Love, Ashton Kutcher shows up at Amanda Peet’s door after just breaking up with his girlfriend, and asks her “What’s your stance on pancakes?” She replies “I’m pro pancake”, and the two head out to Twain’s […]



The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

May 27th, 2008 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

One of my favorite places in all of Hollywood is the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, located right on Hollywood Boulevard. The Roosevelt has had a long and storied history in Hollywood and is even said to be haunted by a few of its former residents. Once you step inside the hotel’s beautiful Moorish lobby, you can almost feel the history coming right out of the walls. Built in 1927 and named after President Theodore Roosevelt, the hotel was the site of the very first […]



Daddy Day Care

May 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While out and about with my dad this week, I decided to stalk the home used in the Eddie Murphy movie Daddy Day Care. Since my dad just retired, he has been recruited to be my new stalking side kick! I think he loves it about just as much as my boyfriend does. Anyway, my fave stalking guide provided me with the location of Eddie Murphy’s house in the movie, so, of course, I had to run right out and stalk it.
It […]



A Cinderella Story

May 23rd, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I have said before, I am a total sucker for a good teeny bopper movie. I still cry every time I watch the Melissa Joan Hart movie Drive Me Crazy! LOL So, a few years back, I was absolutely esctatic to have stumbled upon the filming of the Hilary Duff movie A Cinderella Story while driving in Altadena. I stopped to watch them film for a bit and got to see Hil-D from afar while she was rehearsing some scenes. Very cool!

Fresh Prince House – For Real This Time!

May 22nd, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

Major Fresh Prince of Bel Air fan Bryan posted a comment on my original Fresh Prince post asking me to please, please, please find the actual location of the mansion used as the Banks’ house on the 90s show. Bryan told me he had been looking for this location for years and every tour book seemed to have gotten it wrong. Being that I know the feeling of complete desperation in not being able to find a location, I made it my mission to […]



The Pink House from “13 Going On 30”

May 21st, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I must bow down right now to Mike over at MovieShotsLA as yesterday he found a house that I have spent many unsuccessful hours over the past two years looking for – Jenna’s pink dream house from the last scene of my fave movie 13 Going On 30. Mike said he had a hunch about the area the home was in and found it by looking at aerial shots of streets in that neighborhood. I am forever grateful! Literally, as SOON as he gave […]



Scrubs!

May 20th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last week I attended an acting class in North Hollywood and I happened to get a little bit lost on my way there. I turned onto a small side street off Riverside Drive and wound up in what I thought was a parking lot. But when I saw a guard shack with a large sign saying “Gate B” and what looked to be a closed down hospital, I put two and two together and realized it was actually the Scrubs set! My buddy EJ […]



Flying the Psychic Skies

May 19th, 2008 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

This past weekend I traveled to New Mexico to attend a good friend’s college graduation. I flew out there very early Friday morning and when I got on the plane I was shocked to see Shirley MacLaine sitting there – in a coach seat no less! She didn’t even have a bulk head or emergency exit row seat! She did, however, have a seat for her dog. Anyway, I am absolutely petrified to fly, but once I saw Shirley I was immediately put at […]
