Happy Holidays on Rodeo Drive

Happy Holidays on Rodeo Drive

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ... on Rodeo Drive. This iconic shopping stretch in Beverly Hills is always a top destination for tourists, but LA locals like me can't resist the festive scene during the holidays. I recently spent a Saturday afternoon strolling this famed street to get into the holiday spirit in true 90210 style.

An Encore Performance for the Holidays

An Encore Performance for the Holidays

It’s not always easy to avoid stress this time of year. (There’s a reason it’s called the holidaze!) Amid all the shopping and celebrations, deadlines and meetings, events and appointments, end-of-the-year wrap-ups and New Year planning, it’s more important than ever to be thoughtful, stay centered and not lose sight of the real reason for the season -- faith, family, friends and helping those in need.

Brazilian Beauty Buys on Extra!

Brazilian Beauty Buys on Extra!

I'm baaaack! I stopped by Extra to showcase deals from Sol De Janeiro, a new beauty line that captures the spirit of Brazil with products to help you shake your bum bum! It was a great time meeting Tracy Edmonds, who was so uber-glam I never would've guessed she's originally from Carson, CA! #Homegirls unite!

Good Times with Vaud & the Villains

Good Times with Vaud & the Villains

My favorite 19-piece, 1930s-style New Orleans orchestra and cabaret are back to sashay, shimmy, swagger, swing and sing ... and I'm joining the band! (Well, at least as a distant background dancer.) Vaud and the Villains are a melting pot of Moulin Rouge sultriness and American noir grit and glam, so believe me when I say it's a visual and aural feast you won't soon forget!

Ballin’ with “The Professor” & Wild Animals!

Ballin’ with “The Professor” & Wild Animals!

It was a fun time hanging with YouTube basketball superstar "The Professor" to talk about the game (and how he got 100+ million followers!) but even he couldn't compete with Kingston the squirrel monkey, my favorite little primate. With the recent tragic killing of Cecil the lion, I think we're all more aware about the importance of wildlife conservation and treating animals with dignity and respect.

Syncopated Ladies & the Nail Truck

Syncopated Ladies & the Nail Truck

Hey, ladiesssss!!! It's time to get tappy because the Syncopated Ladies, my favorite all-female tap crew (and last year's winners from “So You Think You Can Dance") are part of the new movie Tap World, an inspiring documentary that shows how dance changes lives for people around the world. The movie opens on Friday, August 7 at the Nuart Theatre in LA.

Collabro Makes it to LA!

Collabro Makes it to LA!

What do you get when you put five British boys in skinny suits and ask them sing live without any help from instruments? An AMAZE performance if it's Collabro! The winners of "Britain's Got Talent" were in the States for the very first time, so of course I had to get them on Good Day LA. Although we were all mesmerized by their voices, they were just excited to see the Walk of Fame in LA. Who knows? Maybe they'll end up with their own star one day.

French Kisses & Cool Cars with Gilles Marini!

French Kisses & Cool Cars with Gilles Marini!

I didn't even have to ask Gilles Marini to pucker up for the camera. This guy knows what ladies like and he also knows what men like--cars! He's a bit of a collector, so he and Barry Weiss from “Storage Wars" talked with me about cars including the 1955 Ford “Beatnik Bubbletop" which looks like it's straight out of the Jetsons!

Catching Up with Eddie Gomez

Catching Up with Eddie Gomez

LA based musician Eddie Gomez is an emerging Latino singer & songwriter known for his thoughtful lyrics and catchy songs like his new single “Catch Me If You Can (Bad Man)." As soon as I heard this song, I knew I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. It has such a fun throwback sensibility that you can't help but tap your feet and rock out like some teeny bopper from another era.

Dinosaur Encounters & LA Street Food Fest

Dinosaur Encounters & LA Street Food Fest

Forget going to the movies ... you can get up close and personal with a Jurassic world of your own at the Natural History Museum of LA. It doesn't matter how old you are, everyone loves (or is at least intrigued by) dinosaurs. I was absolutely amazed at how realistic these life-size puppets look and sound, although it seemed all T Rex and Triceratops wanted to do was eat donuts. That's something you wouldn't have seen 65 million years ago!

French Kiss with Tyler Ritter

French Kiss with Tyler Ritter

A stunning sunset with remarkable rooftop views, camera lights flashing amid a sea of people, and a certain je ne sais quoi wafting through the air…. Who needs Cannes when you have Marina Del Rey? I had no idea what a scene it would be when I attended the world premiere of “French Kiss." What I did know was that the movie stars Tyler Ritter, son of the late great actor John Ritter, from my all-time favorite show "Three's Company." #Bucketlist!

Coachella, Who?? It’s All About Brokechella!

Love music but can't stand the overpriced, overhyped, overcrowded clustermuck that has become Coachella? Well, thank the indie music gods at Brokechella, a day-long festival featuring four stages of live music. To kick things off, I had LA pop band Dutch Party perform and they even let me join in with a little tambourine action. I always wanted to go on the road ...
