Cincinnati is the new Hollywood.


I used to live in LA where craft service trailers and paparazzi clogging the streets were pretty much an every day occurrence for TV and movie location shooting.  When I moved to the Midwest, far away from the entertainment industry, I figured those days were over -- even if Nick Lachey is from my hometown and sometimes graces a Bengals game with his presence.  Well, not so fast -- Cincinnati is apparently the center of entertainment hub-bub these days!  First, our queen city is featured on The Real Police Women of Cincinnati, which I admit makes us look a tad bit ghetto, but it still puts us in the national spot light (at least on TLC).  Then, we have George Clooney's upcoming movie, Ides of March filming right here in town!  The square in my neighborhood was a mess with movie trailers one day AND George's co-stars, Ryan Gosling and Evan Rachel Wood made a visit to the world famous Cincinnati Zoo on a day off from filming!  Uhhh, why wasn't I invited?  I can't wait to see this movie, if only to eagle eye Cincinnati locations in the background.  Other movies that were filmed in Cincinnati include: Milk Money, Little Man Tate, and Traffic.  And last, but not least, our own Mayor Mallory will be in disguise on Undercover Boss this Sunday night!  Granted, his appearance on this show may again expose some of Cincinnati's weaknesses, but nevertheless, Cincinnati is the apparently the place for reality TV!

I also heard that Nick Lachey is moving back to town...I'm sure that it will be like a 2nd or 3rd home to visit for him, but still -- maybe he and I will share a beer a block party someday.  Maybe his and Vanessa's spawn will attend preschool with mine...you never know!
