This past Sunday morning (which was particularly cloudy, as you can see above), the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to Santa Monica to run a couple of errands and while there we happened to walk by the Hotel Shangri-La – a historic Art Deco masterpiece that I have wanted to stalk ever since early 2010 when it was featured in an episode of fave reality series The Bachelor. So the two of us decided to pop in to take some quick pictures – and [...]

Another location that I became obsessed with tracking down thanks to the Best of The Bachelor DVD that my girl Miss Pinky Lovejoy, of the Thinking Pink blog, recently gifted me was the so-called “Ladies’ Villa” – the Mediterranean-style manse where the female contestants lived during the filming of the popular reality series’ inaugural season. And fortunately, it was quite the easy find.
In the second episode of the series, which was titled “Week Two”, not only did The Bachelor host Chris Harrison mention that the [...]
My girl Miss Pinky Lovejoy, of the Thinking Pink blog, recently gifted me with Best of The Bachelor, a DVD compilation of condensed episodes from the popular reality series’ first season as well as a slew of special features and not-shown-on-TV bonus footage. Well, because this stalker absolutely loves herself some The Bachelor, I just about died from excitement upon receiving it, especially since I had not seen any of Season 1 since it originally aired in early 2002, over a decade ago! (How in [...]
Another Beverly Hills, 90210 location that I stalked recently was the Hyatt Westlake Plaza which stood in for both Brenda’s hotel – the Desert Palm Mirage – and Dylan’s hotel – the Desert Mirage – in the Season One episode entitled “A Fling in Palm Springs” (aka “Palm Springs Weekend”). Why that particular episode has two different names I’m not entirely sure, but I digress. I found this location thanks to Geoff over at 90210 Locations who posted the address a few weeks back. The [...]
Last week, before seeing the Dirty Dancing stage show, my fiance and I grabbed a bite to eat at the historic Hollywood restaurant named the Pig N’ Whistle. I had wanted to visit the celebrated Hollywood eatery ever since it appeared on a Fourth Season episode of The Bachelor back in 2003. And, let me tell you, it was well worth the wait.
The Pig N’ Whistle first opened it doors on Hollywood Boulevard on July 22, 1927. The restaurant was part of a small chain of twelve cafes [...]
Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor was all that RealitySteve promised it would be – and more! The show played out pretty much EXACTLY as he said it would and I completely agree with him that the finale’s ”shocking twist” was a set-up from the get-go. Something about Molly’s reaction during the After the Final Rose program just didn’t ring true for me. I mean, come on, she got dumped two months ago on national TV, then Monday night she finds out that the girl she was dumped for just got dumped [...]
I just about died this past Friday afternoon when my US Magazine arrived in the mail and looming out at me was the headline “Is The Bachelor Fake?” I have been absolutely enthralled with The Bachelor this season – and not because I am a fan of Jason Mesnick. I think the guy is pretty much a tool. But there was just so much drama this season that I absolutely could not tear myself away from the TV. And from the look of things, more drama is yet [...]
