Jesse James and Sandra Bullock’s Former House

Mar 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Another Orange County location that the Grim Cheaper and I stalked this past weekend while spending time in Huntington Beach was the former home of actress Sandra Bullock and her ex-husband, West Coast Choppers CEO and reality television star Jesse James.  As it was the GC’s birthday weekend, I was not actually planning on doing any stalking – outside of the 90210 Beach Club, of course, which I blogged about yesterday – during our time in the South Bay, but while we were checking out, […]



The Hyatt Huntington Beach from “90210”

Mar 30th, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

One location that I have been absolutely DYING to stalk for over a year and a half now is the Hyatt Huntington Beach Hotel, the spot which stands in for the Beverly Hills Beach Club, the regular hangout of Liam Court (aka cutie Matt Lanter – sigh!), Annie Wilson (aka Shenae Grimes), Naomi Clark (aka AnnaLynne McCord) and the rest of the West Bev gang, each week on fave show 90210.  So when the Grim Cheaper and I were discussing where to spend his upcoming […]



The “Crossroads” Motel

Mar 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
 
One location that I have been trying to track down for what seems like ages now is the supposed Tucson, Arizona-area motel where Ben (aka Anson Mount) played the song “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” for Lucy (aka Britney Spears) in the 2002 movie Crossroads.  In the flick, Ben takes Lucy into a large, very unique-looking, surfboard-shaped glass room and proceeds to play the song for her on a piano that is stationed there.  Well, let me tell you, I became absolutely […]



Taking the Day Off

Mar 28th, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

 
Because I spent all day Friday taking care of my dad, who was not feeling well, and the rest of the weekend at the Hyatt Huntington Beach (pictured above), the spot which stands in for the new Beverly Hills Beach Club on fave show 90210, I was unfortunately not able to write a new post for today.  But I promise that I will be back tomorrow with a brand new location for your stalking pleasure!   
So until next time, Happy Stalking! 



Paty’s Restaurant from “Desperate Housewives”

Mar 25th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

 
 
To continue on with this week’s restaurant theme, today I thought I would write a post about an eatery that the Grim Cheaper and I stalked back in January – the historic Paty’s Restaurant in Toluca Lake, which first opened for business just a little over a half century ago in 1960.  I had become a wee bit obsessed with tracking down the restaurant a few weeks beforehand while watching the Season 7 episode of Desperate Housewives titled “Assassins”.  At the very beginning of that […]



Watching “The Mentalist” Being Filmed – A Second Time!

Mar 24th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

This past Tuesday morning I was interviewed about my website for an article on filming locations that will be published sometime in early April in a few local, San Gabriel Valley-area newspapers.  While we were talking, the reporter happened to mention that she had just spoken with the City of Monrovia’s Film Liaison who had told her that fave show The Mentalist would be filming that very day on Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Monrovia.  So, I immediately headed right on over there to do a […]



The Original Pantry Cafe

Mar 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Well, it is shaping up to be restaurant week at iamnotastalker.com because for the third day in a row now here I am with yet another eatery to blog about – this time Downtown Los Angeles’ historic Original Pantry Café which first opened almost nine decades ago in 1924.  While I had actually known about the landmark restaurant for many years due to the fact that it has long been one of the Grim Cheaper’s boss’ favorite breakfast joints, it wasn’t until fellow stalker Lavonna […]



The HMS Bounty Bar and Restaurant from “Mad Men”

Mar 22nd, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

Another stalking stop on the Grim Cheaper’s Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt around Los Angeles that we embarked upon this past February was the historic Koreatown eatery known as the HMS Bounty Bar and Restaurant.  And while I had known about the watering hole’s vast history and longtime celebrity clientele before we dined there, up until this past Friday afternoon I had no idea whatsoever that the place was also a filming location.  I first read about the bar, which was founded over six decades ago […]



The Quality Café

Mar 21st, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While stalking in Downtown Los Angeles a couple of weekends ago, the Grim Cheaper and I found ourselves hungry so I suggested grabbing some lunch at the Quality Café on West 7th Street – a diner that has appeared in countless productions over the years.  When we showed up to stalk the place, though, we were shocked to discover that it was completely boarded up.  I was even further shocked to discover, once I returned home, that, aside from some brief blurbs about its filming […]



Alicia Silverstone’s “The Kind Diet” Book Signing

Mar 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

 
This past Wednesday night I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to my favorite local bookstore, Vroman’s (which coincidentally just appeared in the most recent episode of Modern Family, but more on that later), to attend the book signing and discussion for Alicia Silverstone’s new lifestyle tome The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet.  Even though I am not in any way, shape, or form a vegan, I was absolutely DYING to attend the book signing because, as […]
