I just returned from my dream vacation in Los Angeles. I have a serious celebrity entertainment (gossip) addiction that involves watching shows like E! News, Chelsea Lately and TMZ every night.
It’s one of the reasons I picked Los Angeles to celebrate my 40th birthday and check out the sights in Hollywood. My first stop was a taping of Chelsea Lately at Universal Studios. Tickets are free by the way and you can request them live on the Chelsea Lately website. It was one mile from the “b and b” where I stayed in Studio City. The show was fun, but I was a little disappointed because irony slapped me in the face. Here’s why:
Stay tuned. All this week, I’ll share videos from my vacation including an exclusive interview with my favorite TMZ Tour guide on the best celebrity moms, visits to The Grove and CBS studios where major TV shows are taped, along with how I coped with mommy guilt while I was three times zones away in Los Angeles.
I’ve shared some of the photos on the Mommy Talk Show Instagram feed. You can also search for #FiguringOut40LA.
In case you’re wondering, this wasn’t a sponsored trip. I paid for my own travel, accomodations, transportation, meals and entertainment. You can always check Groupon Getaways for special offers to travel at more than 50% off.
But none of it would have been possible without my loving husband who took off from work and handled daddy-duty 24/7 for six days straight.
