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 […]

L’Orangerie – aka Chez Quis Restaurant from "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off"

Jan 12th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in 2010, this stalker became just a wee-bit obsessed with tracking down the restaurant interior which was used as the fictional Chez Quis French eatery in the iconic 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  I knew from listening to director John Hughes’ DVD commentary that the restaurant was somewhere in the Los Angeles area, but try as I might, I just could not seem to locate it.  Because I feared that the place had most likely long since closed down and, as such, any […]

An Evening with “The Closer” at The Paley Center for Media

Sep 14th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

While perusing my Picasa photo account yesterday, I realized that I have been seriously lagging on my Celebrity Sightings posts, as there are numerous events that I have yet to blog about, most notably one that I attended well over a month ago – The Paley Center for Media’s An Evening with The Closer in Beverly Hills.  As I have mentioned several times before, this stalker absolutely loves herself The Closer, so when I got an email from The Paley Center in July announcing that […]

The Barclay Hotel from “As Good As It Gets”

Mar 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I re-watched the movie As Good As It Gets, which I had not seen since it first came out in theatres almost 15 years ago, and I am ashamed to admit that I had somehow completely forgotten what a great flick it was!  While watching, I, of course, became a bit obsessed with tracking down some of the Southern California locations featured in it and just about had a heart attack when I read on IMDB’s As Good […]

Brenda Leigh Johnson’s House from “The Closer”

Dec 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

I thought I’d take a little break from writing about my nuptials today as I figure there are more than a few stalkers out there who are not at all interested in reading about wedding planning, even when there is a filming location element tied in to it.  Anyway, a few days ago I was going through some old photographs on my computer when I came across a location that I stalked way back in November of 2008, but for whatever reason had completely forgotten to blog about – the adorable Craftsman-style house where Deputy Chief Brenda […]

Eagle Rock Plaza from “Glee” and Michael Buble’s “Crazy Love” Photoshoot

Oct 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Glee Filming Locations

This past Monday morning, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, called me up to ask if I wanted to do some stalking with him in the San Gabriel Valley.  As it turns out, Monday was a holiday – although I hadn’t realized it beforehand – and Mike had the day off from work.  So, after first loading up on some Starbucks coffee (but of course) the two of us headed right on over to Eagle Rock, where the first item on our stalking agenda – Eagle Rock Plaza […]

My Coffee With Andre – Agassi, That Is!

Nov 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

A few years back, an email entitled “You Know You’re From Los Angeles When . . . “ which was comprised of a list of “Only in L.A.” scenarios circled the World Wide Web.   My personal favorite item on the list was number 28 which stated, “The guy at 8:30 in the morning at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney actually IS George Clooney”.  LOVE IT!  Well, Thursday morning, I had my very own “Only in L.A.” moment at […]

Kyra Sedgwick’s Walk Of Fame Star Ceremony

Jun 9th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

I found out a few weeks ago that Kyra Sedgwick would be receiving the 2,384th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on the morning of Monday, June 8th.  So, I immediately called up my good friend Blaze and asked him if he wanted to join me in watching the ceremony.   He, of course, said yes, so today the two of us made our way out to Hollywood to watch Kyra receive her star.  And, even though  I had already seen the entire Closer  cast in person, I […]

The Closer Duplex

Apr 20th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I have mentioned before, I am a huge fan of TNT’s crime series The Closer.  As is my whole family, actually.  So, a few weeks ago when my mom challenged me to locate Brenda and Fritz’s duplex apartment building from the series, I accepted the challenge!    And it didn’t take me long to find it at all.  

Actually, I can’t really take credit for this one.  I happened to show my boyfriend a screen capture I had made of Brenda’s building to see if he might have an idea of […]

Just Another Day In L.A.!

Oct 16th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

On Monday, I decided to do a little stalking of the horror movie Scream 2, a movie which I am sad to say was nowhere near as good as its predecessor. But since I had found the address of the fraternity house used in the movie and since the location fit in with my Halloween theme, I had to run right out to stalk it. The fraternity house was featured in the beginning of Scream 2 as the location of the party Sidney and her […]
