The Belasco Theatre

Mar 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
During my three day stint as an extra in the Britney Spears movie Crossroads, I happened to make friends with a few of the crew members.  The entire cast and crew of the movie was EXTREMELY nice and, as tends to happen on long shoots, I got to know the people I was working with quite well.  As I was saying goodbye to my new friends on my last day of being a Crossroads  extra, one of the cameramen invited me to watch the following day’s […]



Cafe-Club Fais Do-Do

Mar 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back before she was going shoeless in public restrooms and flashing her privates to anyone with a camera, I was majorly obsessed with pop princess Britney Spears.  The hair, the cute little outfits, her music – I absolutely loved everything about the girl!    I attended her 2001 Live From Las Vegas  concert event, I learned the steps to “Oops! . . . I Did It Again“ and performed a mini-Britney concert with some of my sixth grade students back when I was a substitute teacher, and I […]



Hilton Checkers Hotel

Mar 27th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few months ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA,  scored the two of us invites to a party and silent auction being held by the Location Managers Guild of America.  We had a fab time at the party and got to meet many location scouts, none of whom had any idea that there were people like us out there obsessed with movie and television locations.  LOL  Anyway, the highlight of that evening was when I placed the winning bid on a one night stay in the Penthouse Suite of the Hilton Checkers […]



George Clooney’s Former Digs

Mar 26th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

This past weekend, thanks to my new favorite book Movie Star Homes: The Famous to the Forgotten, I was able to stalk George Clooney’s former Studio City house.  Now, to be completely honest, I am not a big fan of George Clooney.  I’ll admit that he’s OK-looking, but for some reason he just doesn’t do it for me.  No, this stalker’s heart will forever and always belong to Josh Duhamel.    But, being that pretty much every woman on earth is absolutely gaga for GC, I know that I am in the vast […]



Olvera Street

Mar 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This weekend I dragged my boyfriend and my parents out to stalk a street that is known as the “birthplace of Los Angeles”.  The historic Olvera Street outdoor marketplace has long been a popular tourist attraction and filming location.  But its history began over 200 years ago when the area was built by early Spanish settlers.  At that time it was the center of Hispanic life in Southern California and consisted of a church, a town plaza, and several adobe homes all surrounding a tiny lane known as Wine Street.  […]



On Location With The Mentalist!

Mar 24th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Yesterday morning while doing some Downtown Los Angeles stalking, I happened to stumble upon a large film crew outside of Union Station.  I, of course, asked one of the background actors what was being filmed and almost fell over when she told me it was my new favorite show, The Mentalist!!!!   I asked if Simon Baker was on set and she laughed and said “Everyone’s been asking for him all morning!  It’s cause he’s such a cutie.”  LOL  Sadly, SB had already been wrapped for the day, as had actress Robin Tunney.     Such a bummer!!

But I […]



Where The American Idol Contestants Live

Mar 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Even though American Idol  is not a show I regularly watch, I was completely floored to find a two page article in this week’s US Magazine  featuring the mansion the current Idol contestants are calling home.  I love me some celebrity real estate!   And while US  didn’t give the exact location of the Idol  pad, it did publish several photos of the 35,000 square foot manse and stated that it was located somewhere in Bel Air.  Well I, of course, got to cyberstalking and it wasn’t long before I had located the Mediterranean style home.  And I immediately dragged […]



The Mentalist’s CBI Headquarters

Mar 20th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

My location obsession as of late has been the CBI Headquarters building where Patrick Jane and the gang report to work each week on my new fave show The Mentalist. I do love me some Simon Baker!  He’s such a cutie!     Being that it is quite unique in appearance, I had an inkling that Mike, from MovieShotsLA, might recognize the building used on the show, but since he had never watched The Mentalist I was out of luck there – until this past Tuesday night when the episode entitled “Bloodshot” aired.  For the […]



Helen Twelvetrees’ House

Mar 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a book that is quickly shaping up to be my new stalking tome.  It’s called Movie Star Homes: The Famous to the Forgotten and it features photographs and addresses of over 350 celebrity homes, most of them from the Golden Age of Hollywood.  I have never really been much into the celebs of yesteryear (except for my girl Marilyn), but once I picked up this book I really couldn’t put it down.  It wasn’t long before I had about thirty pages dog-eared […]



Tad Hamilton’s House

Mar 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

  
Another day, another Tad Hamilton  location!  Last week while searching for the Sex and the City  honeymoon house I ran across aerial views of a Malibu home that looked very familiar to me (pictured above).  It didn’t take long before I realized the house was used as Tad Hamilton’s ultra-modern white mansion in fave movie Win A Date With Tad Hamilton.  So, of course, I dragged my boyfriend right out to stalk it! 

When I first saw Win A Date back in 2004, I assumed Tad’s house was just a set.  I knew the […]
