Sightings and Celeb Scoop

This was a really shocking one to me. I was parking my car on my street and practically ran into Hilarie Burton from One Tree Hill. Now, I do live really close to Sunset Blvd. but it seemed weird to me that a star of this caliber would park on my street and not valet her car anywhere. I do know that there is an agency in the 9000 building, so maybe she was visiting her agent? OR maybe she was just visiting The Hustler Store. Yep, that must be it.


Hil, you might have avoided US Weekly, but you can't hide from me. Have fun with your Rabbit.

Yosemite Article

As promised, here is my article on Yosemite. My editor really liked it, and I must say, that I think it's one of my best so far. Maybe I should focus on just being a travel writer??? I could only dream of a job like that!

Chris and Thomas

This is a cool CD to check out if you like Indie Bands. I'll be curious to see how popular they get after the release of this album. Here is the link to my review:

Let's Take a Moment for The Hills

OK, so the 3rd season of The Hills started up this week, and I have to ask - What does everyone think so far? The engagement? The sex tape rumors? Jason's return? And seriously, can Audrina's teeth get any whiter?? I can already tell that this season has me locked in for the long run. I love this show mostly because they tape everything in West Hollywood, and it's pretty cool to see my neighborhood on TV. It looks like Les Deux is going to be the new Area, huh?

On another note, did you know that Heidi and Spencer are releasing a new song together? I'm serious. Ryan Seacrest debuted it (via special permission) on his radio show this morning. I'm pretty sure that we are all going to WANT to hate it... but guess what? It's really good. I can picture myself dancing like crazy two months from now when this song comes on in a bar. They must have had really good producers. The song is Heidi's but at the end, Spencer comes in and does this little 'rap' thing. This was unnecessary in my opinion. But, they have figured out how to work the public, and are going to cross-sell like crazy - so, I say, good for them.

Alamo Race Track

This CD was tight. I would recommend it to those people interested in checking out a new sound - the songs all sound completely different though, so maybe it would be better to download the ones that you like from iTunes:

Destination: Palm Springs

110 degree weather. Sand. Palm Trees. Pools. Margaritas. There is no better way to spend a birthday, that's for sure.

Sightings and Celeb Scoop

Well, we hung out with Willie Garson (aka Stanford from Sex in the City) Saturday night at a Hollywood house party, and he was a complete asshole. Way too full of himself we all decided. When someone let him know that it was my birthday, he looked at me and tried to be as rude as possible when saying "Really? Well, you don't look a day over 27." He meant it as an insult because I think he thought I was 21... but little does he know I'm actually 28, so I could have cared less about the comment. But, moral of the story is- get over yourself dude, because you aren't that big and I realized that I'm so much luckier than gay guy friends are so much cooler than you.

The Doorway! The Doorway!

Well, I have officially survived my first major earthquake. There have been times before when I have felt my building shake a bit, but I always figured no big deal. They say that at least one small earthquake happens every single day in Southern California. Last night though was a different story! Just before 1am, I was woken up and felt like I was being shaken all around in my bed. I couldn't figure out if I was dreaming or what was going on because I was in such a deep slumber. But when I saw that a bottle of perfume had gone down on my dresser, I knew that it was for real. Just as I thought "get in the freaking doorway you idiot, this is actually happening" the shakes actually started to subside. I found the whole experience to be pretty exciting actually. I guess only because it was a 4.5, I can say this, but it's one more thing that I have survived!

Thank god it wasn't bigger, because I definitely don't have earthquake insurance! Here is a report of what happened, and a funny story about people who went to see a late night showing of Transformers:

Letter of Complaint

Dear Lindsay,

I'm writing this letter to ask that you please stay in Long Island with your mother for as long as possible. You see, I'm a resident of West Hollywood, and I'm sick of having to dodge paparazzi on my way to Trader Joe's and Rite Aid. It's pretty dangerous. Quite frankly, I wish that I didn't have to take Sunset past the Chateau Marmont to run errands, but it's my only choice. I know that as a hip, busy girl, that you know what a pain in the ass this can be...There are so few hours in the day and it's a breath of fresh air not having to worry about traffic being backed up by your presence in our 'hood.

Respectfully Yours,
Christina Morgan

PS - If you could spread the word to Brit too, that would be sweet.

El Cantante

The greatest thing about doing this movie review was my choice of a date to take to the screening. My good friend AP did not even mention to me until afterwards that her father was good friends with Hector Lavoe. She knew half of the people from the movie in real life from her childhood. I had no idea when I asked her to see the film with me. We called up her dad afterwards and she was like "Dad, seriously, I did not know that Eddie used drugs back in the day!!" This made the whole experience so much more fun, because she and her dad were able to tell me what the characters were like in real life, off-screen.
