Thornton Gardens from “Funny Girl”

Dec 8th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have never been a big Barbra Streisand fan.  Sure, she’s an undeniably talented singer – and actress and director, for that matter – but I’m just not that into music.  And that whole Rosie-O’Donnell-having-to-rearrange-her-stage-to-showcase-Barbra’s-better-side thing really turned me off.  I won’t even get in to her absolutely cringe-worthy Inside the Actors Studio interview.  Nevertheless, when I came upon this 2016 Outlook Newspapers article which mentioned that the movie Funny Girl had done some filming at a house located at 1155 Oak Grove Avenue in […]



Arrowhead Pine Rose Cabins from “Veep”

Dec 6th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I often find myself thinking about how fabulous it would be if Instagram had existed back when Beverly Hills, 90210 was still on the air.  One of my most-loved down-time activities is perusing the feed of actors currently starring on shows I watch to see the various behind-the-scenes stories and photos they post.  Not only do the images provide a rare peek at the intimate goings-on of the production of a television series, but they’re an incredible source of filming location information.  Like I said, […]



“The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” House

Dec 4th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

My knowledge of the Golden Age of Television doesn’t extend much beyond I Love Lucy, which I watched regularly with my grandma as a child.  I am so out of the loop when it comes to entertainment of that era, in fact, that up until recently coming across a blurb in my friend E.J.’s book Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites, I did not realize that The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was based upon the exploits of the real life Nelson family – patriarch Ozzie, […]

The December 2017 issue of Los Angeles magazine hit newsstands last week, featuring an article by yours truly.  The blurb, which can be found on page 93, is a detailed itinerary for a tour of twenty L.A.-area film locales.  If you can’t get your hands on a copy, don’t worry – the article can also be found online here.  Enjoy!



Richard Simmons’ House

Nov 27th, 2017 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I, along with the rest of the world, became absolutely transfixed by the first season of Serial, the 2014 podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig which detailed the murder of Baltimore teenager Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed for the killing.  Not only did the Grim Cheaper and I listen to the entire thing three times through, but we also voraciously devoured Truth and Justice (née Serial Dynasty) and Undisclosed, two of Serial’s unaffiliated offshoots that further investigated the crime.  […]



Happy Thanksgiving!

Nov 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish a very happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow stalkers.  I hope everyone has a hearty, safe and blessed holiday.  Like last year, I will be cooking tonight’s meal with my mom and am really looking forward to the endeavor, as well as the festivities of the rest of week (like getting our Christmas tree tomorrow).  I will be back on Monday with a whole new post, so I’ll “see” ya then.



Lake Arrowhead’s North Shore Marina Beach from “Vanderpump Rules”

Nov 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Some television moments are so iconic they cannot be forgotten.  A few that are ingrained in my memory for the long haul – Ross and Rachel’s rain-soaked first kiss on Friends, Sam and Diane’s slapping fight on Cheers, Dylan’s epic tantrum (complete with a shattered potted plant) during his first date with Brenda on Beverly Hills, 90210, and Stassi’s discovery that ex-boyfriend Jax has gotten her name tattooed on his arm on Vanderpump Rules.  The latter event took place on a beach in Lake Arrowhead, […]



Hilton Garden Inn Arcadia from “Veep”

Nov 20th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It has been said that everyone has their own special superpower.  I don’t know if that is true or not, but if so, mine is definitely my brain’s ability to take note of small, seemingly insignificant and rather trivial details, and commit them to memory, completely of its own volition.  Case in point – I have stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Arcadia on a couple of occasions over the years.  Though I did not spend much time on the premises during either of my […]



The Many Apartments of Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City”

Nov 17th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

While it is quite common for locations to shift after the pilot episode of a television series is shot (as I’ve mentioned countless times before on this blog), changes are typically few and far between from that point forward.  The vast majority of my favorite shows tend to play fast and loose with their locales, though.  On Beverly Hills, 90210, for instance, not only did two different pads portray the residence of Dylan McKay (Luke Perry), but three exteriors were used to represent both the family […]



Carrera Café – Where Your Favorite Celebrity Can Be Turned into Latte Art

Nov 8th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

When not stalking or shopping, you can typically find me perusing fashion and beauty blogs.  There are several I frequent daily including Gal Meets Glam, Atlantic-Pacific, Merrick’s Art, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and Hello Gorgeous.  The latter was founded by Angela Lanter, wife of fave actor Matt Lanter.  I started reading her site because of the Matt connection (obvs), but it didn’t take long for Angela to seriously grow on me and become one of my favorite online personalities.  Her blog is worthy of a visit […]
