I returned home from Hawaii earlier this week and was absolutely floored to find three episodes of The Two Coreys waiting for me on my TiVo. 🙂 The Two Coreys is so my new favorite show. While I find Corey Feldman to be a complete and total douchebag – the Valentine’s Day song, anyone??? – I absolutely LOVE Corey Haim. I feel so bad for the guy and it breaks my heart everytime he falters on the show. Growing up my favorite movie of all time was License to Drive and I wanted nothing more than to be Mercedes Lane driving around in her white Cabriolet Convertible with Corey Haim for a boyfriend. 🙂 So Mr. Haim will always hold a special place in my heart.
So when I found the address of Corey Haim’s house from the show on fave website Virtual Globetrotting , I just had to run right out and stalk it. I am sad to say that my mom and dad both refused to go out stalking with me on this one – I think they have had just about enough stalking for both of their lifetimes – and since my boyfriend was at work, for Corey’s house I had to go it alone. 😦
Before arriving at Corey’s house, I was convinced that like in most reality shows (ie. Scott Baio is 46 . . and Pregnant), his home was rented solely for filming purposes and was not the “Haimster’s” actual residence. When I got to the house, though, the current (and super nice) owner was standing outside and gave me the scoop. She told me that while Corey does not live in the house anymore, that he actually did live there during the filming of the show. She even got to meet him a few times and said he was very nice. I knew it! 🙂
I am actually surprised they used the house for filming, though, as it is located waaaaaay up in the West Hollywood hills on a very narrow street. I have no idea how they had the room to film anything out in front of the house. I couldn’t even get a very good photo of the house, as the street was so narrow I could not back up far enough to get the whole house in the camera lens. I had to walk halfway down the block to get a pic. The house is a very cool place, though, and is located in a gorgeous neighborhood! I couldn’t believe the size of some of the houses I drove by en route to Corey’s. I highly recommend stalking it if you are a fan of the show.
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: Corey Haim’s house can be found at 1657 Viewsite Drive in West Hollywood. Keep your eyes peeled for all of the gorgeous houses on the up way to Corey’s.
