THE BEST THING ABOUT L.A.
"The people and the nightlife. The people are always polite and very friendly. That's probably because the sun is shining all the time. The nightlife is very different from what's in Orlando. The nightlife is different, the people are different, the atmosphere is different. In Orlando, something happens only once a week. In L.A., there's something going on every day and night, even on Sunday. I don't go out every night, but I like knowing there's something to do."
"I like the Four Seasons on Doheny Drive. They've got a bar where I hang out. Everybody hangs out there, and people say it's one of the best hotels in L.A. because of its rooms and its pool. I never actually stay at the Four Seasons because I've got a house not far away. But the Four Seasons is the hotel, right in the middle of everything. Sometimes I go to the bar, eat club sandwiches, and enjoy the live jazz. The Beverly Hills Hotel is nice, too. It's the famous hotel with the bungalows and the Polo Lounge, where a lot of celebrities hang out."
"Go to a Lakers game at the Staples Center. People say a Lakers game is a total entertainment experience - from the game, to the celebrities, to the Laker Girls, which is how Paula Abdul got her start. The floor seats [$1,160 apiece] are where everybody wants to sit. Denzel Washington, Penny Marshall, Dyan Cannon, and all the studio heads and agents sit on the floor. But what's most incredible about the Staples Center is the way the fans cheer us on. That place just gets loud."
"Spago in Beverly Hills is a favorite because of my main man, chef Lee Hefter. Man, can he cook. I stop in after the game, late, like 10 or 11. I'll start with pizza or crab cakes. Then, I love his big filet mignon steak and scampi-style shrimp with garlic and lemon. I also like his fish, especially the bass. I like to sneak in and sneak out."
