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 […]

Marilyn Monroe’s Childhood Home

Dec 6th, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

One location that had been on my To-Stalk list for what seemed like ages was the Hawthorne-area home where my girl Miss Marilyn Monroe spent the first eight-and-a-half years of her life.  Fellow stalker Lavonna had texted me the address years ago, but because I so rarely find myself in that neck of the woods, I was never able to make it out there.  Until a couple of weeks ago, that is, when I realized that the residence was not too far from a hotel […]

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 […]

Henry Kyle’s Former House

Oct 22nd, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Many, many months back, my mom texted me to ask if I had ever stalked the Bel-Air mansion where Texas tycoon Henry Harrison Kyle was murdered on July 22nd, 1983.  Because the property had also once been the residence of filmdom’s first “It Girl,” Clara Bow, my mom thought it would fit in perfectly with my Haunted Hollywood posts.  That was the first that I had ever heard of the place and, of course, started chomping at the bit to stalk it, so I dragged the Grim Cheaper […]

The Former Site of Mulholland Farm

Oct 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Another locale that fellow stalker E.J., of The Movieland Directory, mentioned in Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites was the spot where Mulholland Farm – the former home of actor Errol Flynn – once stood.  And while I knew next to nothing about Flynn at the time I read the book, the blurb caught my eye due to a macabre practical joke that was allegedly played at the property involving John Barrymore (grandfather of Drew), which I thought would interest my friend Ashley, of The Drewseum […]

Ray Combs’ Former House

Oct 10th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

One Haunted Hollywood location that I learned about back in January thanks to the fabulous book Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites, which was written by fellow stalker E.J. of The Movieland Directory, was the Glendale-area home where former Family Feud host Ray Combs was taken into custody shortly before his 1996 suicide.  I was an avid watcher of the Feud during my teenage years and remember being heartbroken upon learning of Ray’s death, so I was, of course, immediately intrigued.  I ran right out to […]

Vincente Minnelli’s Former Abandoned Mansion

Oct 2nd, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Back in February 2012, a fellow stalker named Kayleigh emailed me to ask if I knew anything about the “creepy” mansion located on the southeast corner of West Sunset Boulevard and North Crescent Drive in Beverly Hills.  Her email stated, “There’s very little information on it online other than the fact that Liza Minnelli battled her former step-mother over it.  It stands out because all the houses in that area are gorgeous, but this home is unkempt, looks abandoned and is just plain scary.”  I […]

Lindsay Lohan’s Former Venice Home

Aug 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I had originally planned on writing about a different location for today’s post, but last night, when the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch Oprah Winfrey interview Lindsay Lohan on Oprah’s Next Chapter, I was reminded of a LiLo locale that I had stalked last November – the Venice Beach house where the troubled star lived for about a year in 2011 following a 90-day stint at the Betty Ford Center.  And I just have to say here that the Oprah interview (which […]

Copley’s on Palm Canyon – Cary Grant’s Former Guesthouse

Aug 8th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

One location that I had been chomping at the bit to stalk for what seemed like ages was Copley’s on Palm Canyon – a restaurant created out of what is said to be Cary Grant’s former Palm Springs guest house.  Because the eatery does not open until 6 p.m. each night, though (I am nothing if not an early bird), and because it is closed during the scorchingly hot summer months of July and August, I had never had the chance.  Until this past May, […]
