Brookside Park from Marilyn Monroe’s Photo Shoot with the White Sox

Mar 28th, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

Back in February, while doing research for my post about the Rainbow Bar and Grill, where my girl Miss Marilyn Monroe went on her first date with Joe DiMaggio, I came across a blurb in the book The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe which stated that the starlet had first caught Joltin’ Joe’s eye via a photo shoot she had done with the Chicago White Sox in 1951. The blurb mentioned that the shoot had taken place at none other than Brookside Park in […]



Oliver’s Palm Springs House from “The O.C.”

Feb 15th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the Grim Cheaper and I have just recently started watching fave series The O.C. over again from the beginning and one location that popped up during the first season that I have been absolutely dying to find and stalk was the supposed-Palm-Springs-area house that belonged to troublemaker Oliver Trask (Taylor Handley) in the episode titled “The Links”.  So imagine my surprise when fellow stalker Geoff, of the 90210Locations website, randomly emailed me last week, after seeing my post […]



Robert Reed’s Former Home

Feb 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

I (along with cutie Matt Lanter – sigh!) would like to start out today by wishing all of my fellow stalkers a very happy Valentine’s Day!  And now, on with the post!

A couple of weeks ago, while doing research on the Nanny and the Professor house, I happened to stumble upon an article on my friend Scott Michaels’ FindADeath website about Robert Reed, the Shakespearian-trained actor who is most famous for having portrayed architect/patriarch Mike Brady on the 1970s television sitcom The Brady Bunch. […]



Mansion Adena – The “A Haunting in Salem” House

Dec 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned back in October during my Haunted-Hollywood-themed-month, while doing research on the Strode house from Halloween I came across a post on fellow stalker Lisa’s Midnight in the Garden of Evil website about Dick Van Dyke’s annual Halloween extravaganza, which I later had the incredible good fortune to stalk. Lisa’s post also featured some information about a movie named “A Haunting in Salem” that Dick’s grandson Shane had recently directed. I was shocked to discover that the straight-to-DVD horror flick […]



The Pasadena Recovery Center from “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew”

Nov 21st, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

One location that I stalked with my good friends, fellow stalkers Lavonna, Beth, Melissa, Kim, and Sandy, while they were in town visiting from Ohio last week was the Pasadena Recovery Center from Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.  And while I had never before actually seen an episode of the VH1 reality series, which just finished up its fifth season, Beth is a MAJOR die-hard fan of it and the treatment facility was the Number One location on her Southern-California-To-Stalk list.  So after grabbing lunch […]



The “Beaches” Mansion

Sep 15th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been asked about repeatedly ever since I first started my blog almost four years ago (and I CANNOT even believe that it has been that long!!!) is the large Tudor-style mansion where Hillary Whitney Essex (aka Barbara Hershey) lived in the 1988 tearjerker Beaches.  And while it had long been noted on various websites that the property was located somewhere in the Pasadena area, try as I might, I just could not seem to track the place down.  Then this […]



Aunt Mitsy’s House from “Rumor Has It”

Sep 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been on the lookout for for what seems like ages now is the home where Aunt Mitsy (aka Kathy Bates) lived in the 2005 movie Rumor Has It.  Even though I was never a particularly big fan of the flick, I pretty much fell in love with Aunt Mitsy’s adorable little bungalow – and her huge front porch – at first sight and have wanted to stalk it ever since.  Especially being that my girl Jen Aniston had filmed a […]



“Parks and Recreation” Filming at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena

Aug 9th, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last Wednesday, while on my morning walk to Starbucks, I happened to pass by fave bookstore Vroman’s and just about fell over when I noticed an entire slew of production trucks parked out front.  I, of course, immediately sought out one of the crew members to ask what was being filmed and he told me that it was an episode of Parks and Recreation.  And even though I had never actually seen the NBC series before, I decided to stick around to watch the filming […]



Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea in Pasadena – One of Joel McHale’s Favorite Hangouts

Aug 8th, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

As I have mentioned quite a few times before on my blog, this stalker absolutely loves herself some Joel McHale.  So when I saw that the cutie The Soup host/Community star had been interviewed about some of his favorite SoCal haunts in the August 2011 “The Best of LA” issue of Los Angeles Magazine, I just about died of excitement!   And, being that this stalker also absolutely loves herself some coffee, when I discovered that the actor frequents a java spot right near where I […]



Mary See’s Former House

Jul 15th, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

Another location that I was reminded of while taking the Scott’s L.A. Audio Driving Tour of Pasadena this past week was the Craftsman-style residence where Mary See and her son Charles, founders of See’s Famous Old Time Candies, lived in the 1920s during the time when the legendary chocolate company was first established.  Because I practically grew up on See’s Candies – I can still remember my parents and grandparents taking me to the chain’s Hillsdale Mall outpost for a treat on an almost weekly […]
