In April, a fellow stalker named Ashley asked for some help in locating the Girls United group home from both the television show The Fosters and its web series spin-off, The Fosters: Girls United. I had never heard of either production before, but through a bit of Googling came across this Wikia article about the house. The stunning property immediately piqued my interest and I spent the next few minutes trying to track in down. It turned out to be an easy find, too, thanks […]
I would like to wish my fellow stalkers a very happy Memorial Day! I hope you are all enjoying a fun and safe three-day weekend and taking at least a moment to remember what today is really about – America’s fallen heroes.
Each May, my girl Miss Pinky Lovejoy, of the Thinking Pink blog, and I have a standing lunch date to celebrate her birthday. We usually hit up Sizzler (‘cause we’re fancy like that!), but this year she requested to dine at Viva Cantina in Burbank – a place I had long wanted to stalk thanks to its appearance in a Season 3 episode of The Girls Next Door. So I, of course, happily obliged.
Viva Cantina, also known as Viva Fresh, has been around since 1962. […]

During my recent Relativity location-finding fest, I also managed to track down the apartment building where Leo Roth (David Conrad) lived with his quirky roommate, Doug (Adam Goldberg) – who was actually my favorite character – on the show. I really could kick myself over this one, though, because I began searching for the property while watching the third episode of the series, which was titled “First Impressions”, and did not have many clues to help with the hunt. Had I waited until the fifth […]
I have been a The Brady Bunch fanatic since I was about three years old. Growing up, I wanted nothing more than to be Cindy Brady (Susan Olsen) and don blonde pig tails on a daily basis. Too bad my hair was brown, curly and far too short for pig tails. As an adult, I still love the show and in recent years have stalked many of its locations. Being that the vast majority of the series was shot on the Paramount backlot, though, and […]
Don’t forget to check out my latest Los Angeles magazine post today – about the Walsh house from Beverly Hills, 90210, Jason Priestley’s new book and how I got started stalking – on LAMag.com. (My columns typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.)
Back in 1996, the Bedford Falls Company, the production company behind fave show My So-Called Life, debuted a new dramedy named Relativity. I was hooked on the series from the get-go. Sadly, it suffered the same fate as My So-Called Life and was cancelled after a solitary season. Unlike MSCL, though, which prospered in syndication, Relativity was not really ever heard from again. So when I recently found some episodes online, I just about flipped my lid. The Grim Cheaper happened to be out of […]
While visiting L.A. last week, the Grim Cheaper and I stayed in Marina del Rey. One late afternoon, during a waterfront stroll, we found ourselves passing by a unique eatery that had long been on my To-Stalk List. Situated on the bustling Admiralty Way amongst upscale hotels and high-rise apartment buildings, the nautical-themed The Warehouse Restaurant is almost hidden from view. I first spotted the place years ago on another oceanside walk with the GC and was instantly intrigued as I had never before seen […]
