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.

This and That
“The next time you check into a deserted hotel on the dark side of Hollywood, make sure you know just what kind of vacancy you’re filling. Or you may find yourself a permanent resident… of The Twilight Zone.” So says Rod Serling at the end of Disney World’s popular The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction. The design of the ride, located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, was inspired by several California locales, one of which was Hollywood Tower, a luxury apartment building situated alongside the […]
It is finally that time again, my fellow stalkers – time for my annual Haunted Hollywood postings! I, for one, could not be more excited! Though I should mention here that postings this year will be rather light as I have two trips planned this month (as I mentioned last week, I’ve traveled more as of late than I ever have before) and my best friend Robin and his girlfriend Steffi are also coming for a visit in mid-October. I do have some great locations […]
The Grim Cheaper and I are currently back east for the next week and a half, which, unfortunately, means I will not have any new posts until (most likely) September 23rd. Our trip is not under the best of circumstances (we are attending a funeral), but we have planned a couple of side trips and stalking stops while on the East Coast, so there will hopefully be some light times, as well. (One of the places we’re planning to see is pictured above. Can anyone […]
I would like to wish a very happy Labor Day to all of my fellow stalkers. I am taking today off, but will be back on Wednesday with a whole new post. Sorry to have been a bit MIA lately, but the Grim Cheaper and I have been traveling a lot and I have also been working on a huge Halloween-themed post for Discover L.A. that I am super excited about. The GC and I have two more upcoming trips planned for the near future, […]
There is pretty much nothing I love more than re-creating famous movie/television scenes and iconic photographs – as most of you well know! Though I had long been obsessed with the notable series of images of Marilyn Monroe taken in front of The Actors Studio in New York in the ‘50s, due to the fact that the legendary school moved no less than five times during its early days, I could never figure out exactly where the shoot had occurred. I poked around the facility’s […]
