KAT & Lynnelle: The Age of The Hook Up When All You Want To Do Is Date

I don't get the hooking up, texting, immature culture fad that has been taking over. So I discuss my frustration over the dating situation with Lynnelle.

The Return of The Lynnelle & KAT Show: The Stress of Caring For An Elderly Parent

Those of you who are familiar with my friend Lynnelle know that she has a full time job and also is the primary caregiver to her 99 year of age mother. Caring for an aging parent is extremely challenging especially if you are the only one stepping up to the plate. Lynnelle feels that her family has abandoned her and has neglected their responsibilities of being there as her mother gets closer to making the transition.

Hotel Cecil Haunted By The Death Of Elisa Lam

I was in downtown shopping and taking photos earlier today.  The parking garage where I parked was adjacent to the Hotel Cecil. I've walked by the hotel numerous times but today was odd because I had just heard about the mysterious death of Elisa Lam and watched the eerie video of her in the hotel elevator.
So I did a little story. It is an unfortunate reality that being a women and traveling alone is a calculated risk. Elisa Lam said that she was being stalked. She ended up in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil. How she ended up on the roof top and dead inside the tank without SURVEILLANCE footage is beyond me. Considering there are video cameras everywhere and Google Maps has satellites all over the place. But that is another story. Some say she was murdered. I find it hard to believe that she would have opened up a water tank which you can see partially in the video and climb in. Also highly bizarre that no one saw anything or her acting strangely in the halls. Days passed while her decomposing body lay in the water tank and hotel guests complained of foul smelling water and low water pressure. Shortly thereafter, an outbreak of tuberculosis hit Skid Row in the vicinity where Lam was found. Who knows if the truth will ever be told. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. May Elisa rest in peace.

KAT Explains The Reason Why Her Covering DWTS Season 17 Stopped

For the past 4 or so years I've covered DWTS comings and goings at rehearsals the entire season. Day in and day out from cold to rain to blistering sun. I loved the show so it was a pleasure. To be more specific I feel in love with the kindness of one particular person by the name of Tristan MacManus. So I will make this story short. I was accused of "attacking/assaulting" a 300lb paparazzi who lied to the LAPD and filed a false report. He forgot to mention that he attacked me from behind and shoved me. I raised my arms to protect myself. He also forgot to mention that he blocked and chased me around while we were shooting. The idea that a bully can get away with not only assault but lying to the LAPD and to some of the people that I care for more than you will ever know has caused me much pain. I don't have to push to get a shot. Look over my 3,000+ videos and see the number of people that I have interacted with and shared their stories. I will defend myself physically if anyone attacks me and by law I have the right to. So for those of you wondering why I haven't been shooting DWTS Season 17 everyday like I have in the past here is the answer. In previous videos, tweets and conversations, the harassment that I've dealt with has been documented. Being assaulted, battered and bullied is no joke and has serious consequences.  These aren't the kind of people I want to work around.

99 Problems vs LAPD

99 Problems is the name of the dancer in the red shirt. He and his dance crew have been entertaining and busking on Hollywood Blvd for years much to the delight of most. LA City Council and the new mayor Eric Garcetti have made up new laws governing Hollywood Blvd. There is some confusion and some conflict on the new rules and what it means to performers and characters. So the age old feud between Civil Liberties, Busking and Business protected by the LAPD continues.

The Fight For Veterans (Filipino & Otherwise) Marches On

I had a backlog of videos. It has been a busy month but I wanted to post a little about Veteran's Day. A March took place on the holiday on Hollywood Blvd which caused some people to be annoyed that it was happening. The last video is one with an Elvis Impersonator (who didn't want to be identified so I shot his waist) a news reporter and myself discussing the right to protest for Filipino Veterans.

Snake Man VS LAPD

I love Hollywood Blvd and all the real life strange stories. This is one of them. Long story short, the LA City Council has put up some new "handwritten" laws regarding street performances, street performing, amplification on the blvd, posting up in a particular spot etc., all in an effort to clean up Hollywood. Because the law is vague and also there was a previous lawsuit to end the harassment that the LAPD was doing to the performers and street characters, there is a little anger regarding Civil Liberties. Here is just one interaction from the Snake Man.

Pick Pocket Caught Stealing Wallets In Beverly Hills Arrested

This was one of the most fascinating things in Beverly Hills. A lady who looked like she received the plastic surgery on her face from the same medical offices she was accused of stealing from, was apprehended by police detectives after several designer wallets were stolen and found in her belongings. It was an interesting scenario because who would suspect a "white older woman" stealing wallets from doctor's offices when she looked like so many of the ladies getting work done.

Mel Brooks Is KAT's Boyfriend

There are few men that I adore more than the humongously talented MEL BROOKS. Here is the legendary funny genius being gracious enough to sign for fans.

DWTS Semi Finals Elimination: Leah Remini Is A Suppressed Person

The title is a little insider joke. Leah Remini was voted off DWTS tonight along with partner Tony Dovolani. Now that Remini will have more free time on her hands, will she write that tell all book about Scientology that everyone has been clamoring for? Or will it be written by Lisa Marie Presley who has been rumored to have cut her ties also with the powerful organization.

Is Rocky A Racist? Mickey Rourke Responds To Stallone Being A Racist

By the way the TMZ guy jumped in front while I was shooting Mickey Rourke so that is why his camera is in my frame. Anyway, Mickey Rourke responds to his best buddy Sylvester Stallone being accused of using the N-word yesterday.

After a long hot day of shooting, I found out one of my favorite bands were on JKL. So instead of eating food and drinking water like a sane person (forgot to eat lunch and dinner), I decided to listen and shoot one of my favorite bands THE KILLERS. Who knew it was also Jimmy Kimmel's birthday. A fellow Scorpion.
Anyway, the Killers sounded great. The bass player Mark Stoermer  killed it. For the record, the only "KILLING" Jimmy Kimmel should talk about is The KILLERS. LOL!

Brian Pumper Talks Porn, Sex & More On Hollywood Blvd

I actually didn't know who Brian Pumper was when I walked by. I thought it was Jennifer Hudson's boyfriend but it turns out it was not. We ended up having an interesting conversation about safe sex, porn and the use of condoms.

Illegal Hot Dog Vendors Don't Care About The Cops Or Making You Sick

Let me make it clear I have no problem with people making an honest living however selling EXPIRED Hot Dogs, cooking them in unsanitary ways and selling them to unsuspecting or unthinking tourists and citizens who can get food poisoning makes my skin crawl. I've watched these people for several years use every trick in the book to keep selling their poison. Yes it is poison. Expired meat that shouldn't be sold and is also not refrigerated or cooked properly is POISON. So I hope the LAPD gets them off the street before someone dies from eating a cheap hot dog. Not only do these vendors have look outs but they return repeatedly after the police warn them to leave. They are like cock roaches fleeing the scene when the light comes on only to return moments later.

Director Feng Xiaogang Big Hit In Hollywood

One of China's most beloved directors Feng Xiaogang was seen last night attending The Chinese Film Festival at TCL. I saw him getting out of his SUV and I knew I seen him before. He was in one of my favorite movies "KUNG FU HUSTLE" so it was very nice to see him. His new movie "Back To 1942" has been well received by audiences. Feng was immortalized by a hand and foot ceremony at the Chinese Theater on Friday morning.
