Q: We might not be traveling in the near future but my girlfriend is a real celebrity fanatic. I was wondering if there was a web site you could recommend that’ll help us plan our next trip. She’s a big Desperate Housewives fan and is also interested in visiting other places known to be celebrity hangouts.

A: For anything celebrity-related I point my mouse to the new web site, Microsoft just launched this portal packed with all the trivia fit for any celebrity watcher. Included in the list are celebrity favourite restaurants, hotels, dance clubs, shopping, and family hang-outs from their hometowns.

For instance, according to the web site, tennis star Anna Kournikova who calls Miami home since 1997 has a list of favourite hang-outs. For pedicures she frequents Lace Nail Lab, and for clubbing she hangs at the Vegas-style club-at-the-moment Mansion, the upscale Red Room and Rokbar.

For tennis, try the courts at Flamingo Park, located in the hub of South Beach. When you click on the celebrity name of Desperate Housewive’s diva, Eva Longoria, you’ll find she dines at Mi Tierra Café and Bakery, a restaurant in San Antonio, loves visiting the Guadalupe River State Park with family, and shops at the River Center Mall, five blocks from the historic Alamo.

The web site is constantly being updated and makes it interesting fodder for any celebrity watcher who wants to know the latest on their favourite stars.
