Carrie Fisher’s House

Jan 3rd, 2012 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I would like to start off by wishing all of my fellow stalkers a very happy New Year!  I hope that 2012 brings each of you joy, laughter, fulfillment, and much good stalking.  And now, on with the post!  When my good friend, fellow stalker Lavonna, visited Los Angeles back in mid-November, she, along with her daughter Melissa and friends Beth, Kim, and Sandy, attended a taping of The Talk (during which she got a hug from none other than Henry Winkler himself, aka The […]

Lana Turner’s Former House -The Johnny Stompanato Murder Site

Oct 14th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

My grandma, who loves reading Hollywood biographies just as much as I do, recently gifted me with a book about the life of legendary film idol Lana Turner, authored by the star’s only daughter, Cheryl Crane.  The ginormous tome, which must weigh at least twenty pounds (not kidding!), is named LANA: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies and, prior to reading it, I knew virtually nothing about the 1950s screen siren.  Well, aside, of course, from the fact that she had been embroiled in one […]

Bob Hope’s Former House – A Trick-or-Treating Mecca

Oct 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

As I have mentioned a couple of times before on this blog, this stalker absolutely loves herself some Los Angeles Magazine – especially the ever-witty and always-informative “Ask Chris – The City Explained” write-in column, in which Associate Editor/author Chris Nichols answers Angelenos’ random questions about life in the City of Angels.  This month’s column featured a letter from a Valley-area reader with a tidbit of Halloween information that I had never before heard.  She wrote, “When I was a kid, we always went trick-or-treating […]

Cary Grant’s Former Palm Springs Estate

Jul 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Another Cary Grant location (and I promise that this is the last of them for a while for those who are hoping for a change of pace) that the Grim Cheaper and I stalked while vacationing in the Palm Springs area two weekends ago was the “Cary Grant Estate”, aka “Las Palomas”, the Andalusian-style, U-shaped farmhouse that the actor called his desert home for nearly two decades.  I came across information about the property, which is currently for sale for a cool $2,995,000, when doing […]

Charlie Rich’s Former Palm Springs Estate

Jul 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Another location that Jennifer Grant spoke fondly of in Good Stuff, the memoir about her late father, actor Cary Grant, was the Palm Springs estate belonging to Cary’s good friend, Las Vegas Dunes Hotel owner Charlie “Kewpie” Rich.  Many weekends of Jennifer’s childhood were spent at “Uncle Charlie’s” lush, four-acre Coachella Valley oasis, which the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress described as “my adolescent wonderland” and a “desert Disneyland”.  In the book, Jennifer writes, “Our number-one weekend getaway was to Uncle Charlie’s Palm Springs estate. Uncle […]

Cary and Jennifer Grant’s Former House

Jul 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

As I mentioned last month, back on May 28th I attended the Jennifer Grant book signing for Good Stuff, the actress’ newly-penned memoir about her late father, movie star Cary Grant.  Well, I finally finished reading the tome last weekend and I can honestly say that it is one of the best books I have ever read.  What an incredibly touching gift Jennifer has created for her father – and for her father’s countless legions of fans.  If you have not yet read Good Stuff, […]

Falcon Lair – The Former Estate of Rudolph Valentino

Jul 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Way back in December of 2009, I got an email from a fellow stalker named Todd who wanted to know if I had any information on Falcon Lair, the former Rudolph Valentino estate which he had heard was in the process of being torn down.  Amazingly enough, before receiving Todd’s email I had never before heard of Falcon Lair, nor did I know much about its legendary owner.  Rudolph Valentino, as it turns out, was the Brad Pitt/Johnny Depp – or, if you ask me, […]
