Taking the Week Off!

Feb 27th, 2012 | By | Category: This and That

I will be spending the upcoming week in the Desert visiting my parents, so I will be taking the next five days off from blogging.  But I did have a fabulous pre-Oscar week during which I finally got a picture with my “unicorn”, Miss Kristin Cavallari, who, I am very happy to report, was a complete and total sweetheart!  Sigh!  LOVE her!!!  Anyway, I promise to be back next Monday (March 5th) with a whole new location.
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 



Barb’s Quickie Grill from “Pretty Woman”

Feb 24th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Pretty Woman location that I spent countless hours trying to track down recently was the tiny café where Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) and Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) had dinner towards the end of the classic 1990 flick.  And while the name of the establishment – “Barb’s Quickie Grill” – and a street number – “7006” – were clearly visible in the scene, and a quick Google search had provided me with an address – 7006 Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood – this particular locale […]



The Milbank Mansion – aka Chapman Academy Preschool from “Daddy Day Care”

Feb 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, Tony, my friend and fellow stalker who has the fabulous On Location in Los Angeles Flickr photostream (seriously, it’s amazing – go check it out!), asked me for some help in tracking down the ginormous Mediterranean mansion that stood in for the prestigious Chapman Academy Preschool in the 2003 comedy Daddy Day Care.  Tony had informed me that the residence was used regularly for filming and that it had also been featured recently in the Season 10 episode of fave […]



The Interior of the “Bruce Almighty” Party House

Feb 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

In honor of my girl Jen Aniston receiving the 2,642nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today (a ceremony that I will actually not be attending because, after the debacle that was the Horrible Bosses premiere this past summer, I have a severe aversion to any event that has the potential of being too crowded or too chaotic), I thought that I would blog about a location from her 2003 romantic comedy Bruce Almighty.  As I mentioned this past July in my post about […]



The “You, Me and Dupree” House – Revisited

Feb 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s location is one that I have actually already once blogged about – way back in April of 2008 – but because it was a fairly short write-up and because I somehow missed one very pertinent detail when reporting on the place, I decided that it was most-definitely worthy of a re-post.  The location?  The adorable Craftsman-style bungalow where newlyweds Carl (Matt Dillon) and Molly (Kate Hudson) lived in the 2006 romantic comedy You, Me and Dupree.  Fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, took me by […]



Happy Presidents’ Day!

Feb 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Uncategorized

I will be taking today off in honor of Presidents’ Day, but will be back tomorrow with a whole new post.  I hope all of my fellow stalkers had a fabulous three-day weekend! 
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 



The Alleyway and The Blue Banana Club from “Pretty Woman”

Feb 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in my post about the Pretty Woman party house, fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I have recently been on the hunt for a few of the flick’s more elusive locations – the two most important of which being the alleyway where the body of “Skinny Marie” was found and, across the street from it, The Blue Banana Club where Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) and Kit De Luca (Laura San Giacomo) hung out in the film.  And, […]



The Redbury Hotel from “Entourage”

Feb 16th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last July, while doing some cyber-stalking, I came across an article on the USA TODAY Travel website about the numerous Southern California hotels and restaurants featured in the eighth and final season of the hit television series Entourage.  One of the spots mentioned in the blurb was Tinseltown’s newly-opened The Redbury Hotel, which appeared in the episode titled “The Big Bang”, and, thanks to its dark crimson walls, unique architecture and old Hollywood vibe, I immediately became enamored of the place.  I, of course, added […]



Oliver’s Palm Springs House from “The O.C.”

Feb 15th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the Grim Cheaper and I have just recently started watching fave series The O.C. over again from the beginning and one location that popped up during the first season that I have been absolutely dying to find and stalk was the supposed-Palm-Springs-area house that belonged to troublemaker Oliver Trask (Taylor Handley) in the episode titled “The Links”.  So imagine my surprise when fellow stalker Geoff, of the 90210Locations website, randomly emailed me last week, after seeing my post […]



Robert Reed’s Former Home

Feb 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I (along with cutie Matt Lanter – sigh!) would like to start out today by wishing all of my fellow stalkers a very happy Valentine’s Day!  And now, on with the post!

A couple of weeks ago, while doing research on the Nanny and the Professor house, I happened to stumble upon an article on my friend Scott Michaels’ FindADeath website about Robert Reed, the Shakespearian-trained actor who is most famous for having portrayed architect/patriarch Mike Brady on the 1970s television sitcom The Brady Bunch.
