Critics Choice Movie Awards

2015 Critics Choice Awards are Better Than Ever!

This year A&E is broadcasting the Critics Choice Awards, and they are going all out–they hired Michael Strahan as the host, all the stars and filmmakers will be there front and center, and I’ll be right their in the middle of them, seated snuggly at a table with Lana Del Rey (YES!). “What are the Critics…

Dennis Miller Lists Beach House Exterior

Dennis Miller Asks $22.5 Million For His Beautiful Beach House in Carpinteria

If it were in Malibu, maybe, but we think comedian/talk show host Dennis Miller is shooting a little high by listing his Carpinteria beach house for a whopping $22.5 million. As gorgeous as the home may be, it’s in south Santa Barbara County, not trendy, Oprah-infested Montecito, and it boasts 63 feet of sandy beach…

Home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras Living Room

Former Home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras and Jon Peters for Sale

Some homes just seem to have star appeal. Take this 1.5 acre Beverly Hills estate, for example: not only is it the former home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras and Jon Peters, but Kate Jackson also held the title, and she bought it from famous TV producer/director William Asher (Bewitched, The Patty Duke Show, Gidget). Who knows…

Enjoy!    Top Picks Interstellar Stellar indeed, this is some dense story-telling, requiring leaps of quantum faith, but once accomplished, it’s a geek’s play land of possibilities, reminiscent of 2001 but more exciting and…

Kim and Kanye's $3 Million Fixer Street View

Why Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Buy This $3 Million Shack?

This run down ranch house is hardly a star quality property. As a matter of fact, in any other market, they’d be hard pressed to get $300,000 for it, let alone $3 million. So why did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West buy this $3 million tear down? Location, my dears. It’s all about location. It seems…

Celebrity House Hunters: New Home for New Family

When it comes to mixing work with play, about the only thing I like better than watching House Hunters on HGTV is hanging out with real life house hunters attempting to find their dream home. And since this is Los Angeles, many of the house hunters I’m involved with are of the upscale, celebrity variety. Yes, it’s true, most…

Into the Woods Review

Into the Woods Review

The perfect movie to see with the family on Christmas day, if the all-star cast of Into the Woods doesn’t charm you, Stephen Sondheim’s extraordinary music will. Even the most committed musical phobe will find something to enjoy in this spectacular musical fantasy. Filmmakers spared no expense when it came to casting this dark, fairy tale mashup, with…

The Interview Review

Heaven help me, I’ll probably get hacked and attacked by terrorists for writing a positive review, but I found The Interview absolutely hysterical, and I would have given it my vote for best comedy of the year had Sony not pulled it from theaters. I’m really hoping they release it on a pay per view basis online, or it…

American Sniper Review

American Sniper Review

At last, Clint Eastwood is back in fine form with American Sniper, a gripping, must-see movie based on the true experiences of U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in the country’s military history. Even if you don’t like war movies (I find them particularly hard to watch), this riveting, harrowing and important film will make you…
