The Pasadena House Where the Prom in “Twilight” Was Filmed

Jul 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been on the lookout for for what seems like forever now is the Pasadena-area home where part of the prom scene from the original Twilight movie was filmed.  I first found out about this location while browsing through Catherine Hardwick’s fabulous book Twilight: Director’s Notebook at my local bookstore.  According to Hardwick, after filming of the 2008 flick had been completed, it was decided that an additional conversation between Bella Swan (aka Kristen Stewart) and Jacob Black (aka Taylor Lautner) […]



David Wallace’s House from “The Office” – Part II

Jul 29th, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Another filming location from The Office that I dragged my fiance out to stalk two weekends ago was the large Colonial-style estate belonging to Dunder Mifflin Paper Company CFO David Wallace (aka Andy Buckley) on the show.  This is not the same Pasadena-area property that stood in for the Wallace residence in the Season 3 episode of the series titled “Branch Closing” that I blogged about two weeks ago, however.  For an unexplained reason, after shooting the “Branch Closing” episode, producers chose to use a […]



The Tori Spelling “uncharted terriTORI” Book Signing

Jul 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

This past Monday night, former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori Spelling made an appearance at my favorite bookstore Vroman’s to do a signing of her most recent memoir, uncharted terriTORI.  And even though I live very close to Vroman’s, I am sad to say that I almost didn’t attend the event.  The sad truth is that I have yet to catch up on all of my wedding planning duties, or even my emails for that matter, ever since returning home from the Mayo Clinic with […]



The Historic El Paseo Shopping Center from “It’s Complicated”

Jul 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another It’s Complicated location that I stalked while visiting the Santa Barbara area a few weeks back was the historic El Paseo Shopping Center located in the heart of Downtown State Street.  In the movie, the Spanish-style marketplace stood in for the “Santa Barbara Medical Building” where Jane Adler’s (aka Meryl Streep’s) therapist, Dr. Allen (aka Peter Mackenzie), worked.  In reality, El Paseo does not actually house medical offices, but is in fact California’s very first and oldest shopping center.  I found the location thanks […]



Kurt Cobain’s Former House

Jul 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

While visiting the Pacific Northwest this past May, my good friend and fellow stalker Kerry took me to stalk a location that, at first, I actually wasn’t all that interested in seeing – the Seattle-area home where Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain passed away on April 5, 1994.  I’d never really been into Kurt Cobain or Nirvana or the Grunge Movement as a whole  – let’s face it, if it’s not sung by Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, or Michael Buble, I probably haven’t heard it  😉 […]



Michael Scott’s Condo from “The Office”

Jul 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

I am very sad to report that early last week I finally watched the Season 6 finale of The Office and am at this time all caught up on new episodes of the show.  I am not quite sure what to do with myself now and am seriously considering watching the entire series over again, even though it’s only been about three weeks since I began watching it the first time.  What can I say – I am absolutely obsessed!  Unlike me, though, my fiancé […]



Wedding Planning!

Jul 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Because I was out all day yesterday doing some planning for my upcoming wedding (it’s only one month away now!!!!), I was unable to write a new post for today.  I promise to be back tomorrow, though, with a whole new stalking location.    Until then, Happy Thursday to all of my fellow stalkers! 



24/7 Restaurant from Glamour Magazine’s “Glee Gets Glam” Photo Shoot

Jul 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Glee Filming Locations

One location that I have been ABSOLUTELY DYING to stalk for what seems like forever now is the diner-style restaurant where the girls from Glee – Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Amber Riley, and Jenna Ushkowitz – posed for the May 2010 Glamour Magazine “Glee Gets Glam” photo shoot.  After months of searching for it, though, and having absolutely no luck whatsoever, I had become convinced that the shoot had taken place on a studio set somewhere in Hollywood and not at an actual restaurant.  And […]



The Very First Starbucks Store

Jul 20th, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

While this probably goes without saying, the location that I was most excited about stalking while vacationing in Seattle this past May was the very first Starbucks store at Pike Place Market.  As I’ve mentioned countless times in the past – and as anyone who knows me even slightly well can attest to – I am an absolute Starbucks fiend!  I visit my local branch at least twice a day and am on first name basis with all of the baristas who work there.  Heck, […]



The Moonlight Mile Bar from “Beautiful Girls”

Jul 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While going through my trusty stalking notebook this morning, I realized that I still have quite the backlog of Minnesota filming locations that I have yet to blog about.  Not to mention the slew of Seattle locales that I haven’t even yet begun to post!  I’m going to mix them all in with L.A. area locations over the next few weeks so that my fellow stalkers don’t get bored reading about the same city over and over again.  But for today I thought I’d write […]
