The Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway Tour

Jun 30th, 2017 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

My knowledge of Elvis Presley is basically limited to the fact that he was a singer (duh!), his 1957 drafting into the army served as the inspiration for the play and movie Bye Bye Birdie, he called a spectacular Tennessee mansion named Graceland home (the manse is the setting of one of my favorite plays ever, Ellen Byron’s aptly titled Graceland), and he learned his famous hip-thrusting moves from a young Forrest Gump.  (Ha, just kidding about that last one.)  So yeah, virtually everything I […]



Robert Pastorelli’s Former House

Oct 12th, 2016 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes, Haunted Hollywood, This and That

Growing up, I absolutely loved Murphy Brown. This was largely due to the antics of zany housepainter/nanny Eldin Bernecky, played by actor Robert Pastorelli.  I adored Eldin so much in fact that when Pastorelli left the show in 1994, I stopped watching.  I was heartbroken to learn of his death a decade later and was even more heartbroken when news came to light that he was being investigated as a suspect in the 1999 killing of his then girlfriend, Charemon Jonovich, at the time.  […]



Hacienda Palomino – Michael Jackson’s Former Las Vegas House

Mar 31st, 2015 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I am not really that into stalking celebrity homes (though I have quite a few of them on my site), the main reason being that typically little else besides a gate can be seen from the road.  There are some exceptions, though.  If there is a star I really like, or if I read about a residence in a book, or if a significant event happened there, or if the look of a place piques my interest, I am most definitely going to want to […]



Nat King Cole’s Former House

Dec 17th, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

My good friend Lavonna is all about Christmas.  So when she came out to SoCal for a visit, along with Kim, Melissa and Maria, last month, she had a few suggestions of holiday-themed locations for me to stalk.  One of the locales was the former Hancock Park home of Nat King Cole, the African American crooner who was the very first artist to record Bob Wells and Mel Tormé’s immensely popular carol “The Christmas Song” in 1946.   So we ran right over to stalk the […]



Pete Duel’s Former House

Oct 27th, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes, Haunted Hollywood

Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.  That adage rings true for today’s story, about actor Pete Duel who shot and killed himself at his Hollywood Hills home in the early morning hours of New Year’s Eve 1971.  I had Duel’s address written down in the Haunted Hollywood portion of my To-Stalk list, though I cannot for the life of me recall how or where I obtained it.  I am unsure if a fellow stalker gave me the information or if […]



William Desmond Taylor’s Former House

Oct 24th, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes, Haunted Hollywood

Last Saturday, my mom, the Grim Cheaper and I attended a book signing for William J. Mann’s latest tome, Tinseltown: Murder, Morphine and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood.  My mom had heard about the event on our favorite desert radio show, The Bill Feingold Show Featuring Kevin Holmes, and thought I would be interested in the book as it is about the 1922 murder of silent film director William Desmond Taylor, which remains unsolved.  Ironically enough, I had just stalked Taylor’s former home two […]



Yvette Vickers’ Former Home

Oct 17th, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes, Haunted Hollywood

Boulevard of broken dreams – that phrase pops into my head every time I venture down Hollywood Boulevard and see the men and woman costumed as super heroes or movie stars charging tourists to take a photograph with them.  I can’t imagine it is what anyone who sets out for Los Angeles hopes to do and is a reminder of the sad turn a life in show business can take.  Even those who gain notoriety at some point in their career are not immune to […]



Marilyn Monroe’s Former Burbank Apartment Building

Jul 1st, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Shortly before I headed to Los Angeles for my weeklong birthday celebration with out-of-town friends Kim, Lavonna, Katie and Kaylee (that’s Katie and Kaylee in the above pic), I came across a Curbed post that mapped 43 properties where my girl Marilyn Monroe once lived.  The blurb practically had me foaming at the mouth, obvs.  I immediately sent the link to Lavonna and she added several of the addresses to her To-Stalk list, one of which was an apartment building located directly across the street […]



Jason Priestley’s Former Apartment

Jun 3rd, 2014 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I haven’t been getting much sleep the past few nights and it’s all Jason Priestley’s fault.  His new book, Jason Priestley: A Memoir, has me burning the midnight oil.  The chapters are brief (most only a page or two) and begging to be perused.  I find myself repeatedly thinking ‘I’ll just read one more,’ and the next thing I know it’s midnight.  Ah, well, the fatigue has been worth it.  The tome is fabulous and enthralling.  I cannot more highly recommend it – especially since […]



Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle’s Former West Adams Houses

Nov 21st, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I just finished reading a fabulous book about one of Hollywood’s first and biggest controversies titled Room 1219:  The Life of Fatty Arbuckle, the Mysterious Death of Virginia Rappe, and the Scandal That Changed Hollywood by Greg Merritt.  Prior to reading the tome, I knew little about actor/comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, but had always been fascinated by his rape and murder trial, which rocked Tinseltown to its core.  I had actually previously stalked two of Fatty’s former West Adams homes after finding their addresses thanks […]
