Triada Palm Springs

Sep 18th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

For those who are unfamiliar with the area, Palm Springs is HOT in the summer.  Well, it’s hot year-round, but in the summer it’s hot hot – like 115 most days.  One nice consequence of that fact is that hotels drop their prices during the inclement months.  My family loves to partake of the low rates with short staycations in various area hotels.  Last week, we had the pleasure of checking into Triada Palm Springs.  Though not a filming location, the place does have quite […]



The Colony Palms Hotel

May 23rd, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

Upon first moving to the Desert back in January, the Grim Cheaper’s boss, who also resides in the Coachella Valley, told me about a small Palm Springs-area inn named the Colony Palms Hotel that she thought I might be interested in stalking due to its vast Hollywood history.  For whatever reason, though, I completely forgot about the place until the GC and I happened to drive by it a couple of weeks ago.  So, since we were right there and since it was almost 5 […]



The Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells

Aug 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

One Palm-Springs-area hotel that I have long wanted to vacation at – not because it is a filming location, but because it is just simply beautiful – is the Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells.  The Grim Cheaper and I ate dinner at the resort once upon a time many years back and I have been enamored of the place ever since.  So for our recent Coachella Valley getaway two weekends ago, I begged the GC to book us a room there.  And even […]



Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s Honeymoon Suite at the Ingleside Inn

Jun 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, This and That

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I spent my recent birthday weekend in Room 148 of the Ingleside Inn in Palm Springs – the very room where Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston stayed during their mini-honeymoon shortly following their July 29th, 2000 wedding.  I first found out about the Ingleside Inn back in April of 2009 thanks to this Jetsetters Magazine article and, as you can imagine, just about died upon hearing that my girl Jen had honeymooned there.   Then, shortly thereafter, the Grim Cheaper […]



Caliente Tropics Resort from “Alpha Dog”

Jun 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location that I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk while visiting the Palm Springs area two weekends ago was the Caliente Tropics Resort which appeared in the ultra-disturbing 2006 movie Alpha Dog. I found this location thanks to fave stalking book Hollywood Escapes: The Moviegoer’s Guide to Exploring Southern California’s Great Outdoors, which was written by stalking god Harry Medved (who, as it just so happens, will be signing books at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena on Sunday, June 19th at 2 p.m., […]



La Quinta Resort & Club

Dec 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Brace yourselves, my fellow stalkers, ‘cause today’s post is going to be a long one!  As I mentioned yesterday, the Grim Cheaper and I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs and we came to do so thanks to an extremely serendipitous course of events.  Last Wednesday night, I was curled up on my couch reading the December issue of fave publication Los Angeles Magazine when I came across an advertisement for La Quinta Resort & Club which stated that Frank Capra had written the […]



Brad and Jen’s Honeymoon Hotel

May 12th, 2009 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, This and That

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this weekend was a big one for me.  The biggest perhaps!   My boyfriend (of over eight and a half years!!) finally popped the question!!!!!!!!!!!     And I, of course, said yes!  This changes things quite a bit for me, as from now on I will no longer be dragging my boyfriend to filming locations all across L.A.  I will now be dragging my fiance!!    LOL  My boyfriend realized long ago that if he was going to propose to me it had […]



Halloween 2008

Nov 3rd, 2008 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

For Halloween this year, I desperately wanted my boyfriend and I to dress up like Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio. I know, total shocker. It all ended up coming together quite perfectly, too, as earlier this summer I found a white dress a la Marilyn’s subway grate ensemble, that was super inexpensive. I also happened to have an appointment to get my hair cut on Halloween morning, so I asked my amazing hair stylist, Martina, if she could do me up Marilyn style. She […]



P.S. I Love You

Sep 4th, 2008 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

In honor of the big 90210 v. 2.0 premiere that took place on Tuesday night, I just had to do a little 90210 v. 1.0 stalking this past weekend. Since my boyfriend and I were out in Palm Springs for a little Labor Day vacay, I dragged him to the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa which was featured in the series’ Season 5 finale. In the episode, entitled “P.S. I Love You”, Brandon, Valerie and the gang head out to Palm Springs for an […]
