Two Bunch Palms from “The Bachelor”

Mar 18th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

This past weekend, I was finally able to visit a place that has been on my To-Stalk list for eons!  I first learned about Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs, which was featured in a Season 1 episode of The Bachelor, about a decade ago, but, because the exclusive wellness resort was only accessible to hotel guests and spa-goers at the time, was never able to see it in person.  Though the Grim Cheaper and I were tempted to book a stay there many […]



ARIA Resort & Casino “The Bachelor”

Apr 20th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Each season, The Bachelor reality series whisks its stars and contestants to various exotic, high-end locales.  During Brad Womack’s second stint as The Bachelor, he and the ladies (including my girl Emily Maynard) headed to the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.  Prior to last month, I had not been to Sin City in over a decade (that’s like a lifetime in Vegas years!), long before the ARIA had been built, and I was absolutely itching to stalk the place.  So I dragged the […]



The Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar from "The Bachelor"

Feb 23rd, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

This season of The Bachelor has been one for the record books!  I don’t think there has ever been a prior season featuring so many crazy contestants – and for The Bachelor, that’s really saying something.  Sure there are a few sane women in the bunch (Whitney, Carly and Becca), but for the most part each episode is like a parade of crazy – and I am loving every minute of it!   The Grim Cheaper and I just visited a location from a past season […]



The Colorado Street Bridge from “The Bachelor”

Feb 12th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

When Juan Pablo Galavis and Chelsie Webster went bungee jumping off of Pasadena’s Colorado Street Bridge in the recently-aired Season 18 episode of The Bachelor titled “Soccer Date,” I found myself wondering, “How did I miss the filming?”  Although it has been over a year now, I still have to remind myself that the Crown City is no longer home.  (The Grim Cheaper is convinced that all the blonde hair dye I use has finally started to affect my brain.  )  I happened to drive […]



Teri Hatcher’s Red Carpet Charity Yard Sale

May 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

This past Sunday morning, Miss Pinky Lovejoy, from the Thinking Pink blog, called me up to let me know that she had just found out about a celebrity fundraising event in Santa Monica that was being hosted by actress Teri Hatcher.  So, much to the Grim Cheaper’s chagrin, I immediately hopped right out of bed, ran a brush through my hair, threw on some make-up, grabbed my car keys, and dragged him right on over to the West Side to stalk it.  To say that […]



Our Rehearsal Dinner at POP Champagne & Dessert Bar

Dec 10th, 2010 | By | Category: My Movie-Themed Wedding, This and That

As I’ve mentioned many times before on this blog, POP Champagne & Dessert Bar in Old Town Pasadena is my very favorite restaurant and, even though I wasn’t even engaged at the time, when I first walked through its front doors over a year and a half ago, I immediately knew it was the place where I wanted to hold the rehearsal dinner for my wedding.  The only problem was that the Grim Cheaper and I had long been planning on getting married in Malibu […]



Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Resort & Spa

Sep 10th, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

During our recent Cabo San Lucas honeymoon, the Grim Cheaper and I stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Resort & Spa.  And while I knew from looking at the property’s website that it was a beautiful place, at the time I made our reservation I had absolutely NO idea that it was also a celebrity destination AND a filming location!  They say that you attract those things to you that you think about the most, and in this case, that was most definitely true!   […]



Brenda and Dylan’s Palm Springs Hotel from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Feb 4th, 2010 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

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 […]



Pig N’ Whistle Restaurant

Jun 15th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

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 that dotted […]



POP Champagne Bar

Mar 17th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

This past weekend I dragged my boyfriend out to stalk Pasadena’s newest hot spot – a little place called POP Champagne & Dessert Bar which opened its doors about three months ago.  Being that champagne is my (and my girl Marilyn’s) fave cocktail, I have been dying to stalk this place ever since it opened back in December.  Sadly I didn’t get around to it until this past Friday night.  But let me tell you, it was worth the wait.  I think POP might just be […]
