Watch Uh Huh Her's Rock-Star Guide to the Galaxy: Part 1
There was a long time when I was hatin' on L.A. I guess if you're not from here (here being San Francisco), you don't know about this invisible line somewhere just above Santa Barbara that divides Northern and Southern California. It's where people's tans start to fade, their hair gets darker, and as Northern Californians will argue, they stop wasting so many natural resources.
I grew up in the suburbs of LA and Lauren (Co-producer) grew up in San Diego, but we've lived in the bay area for some 10 years, so we were curious to ask the ladies of Uh Huh Her, both L.A. transplants (Leisha Hailey comes from Nebraska, Camila Grey from Texas), if they could dispel or confirm some myths about Los Angeles. Check out what they had to say about fact and fiction in SoCal, and watch Pt. 2 of their Rock Star Guide to the Galaxy after the jump.

Rhapsody: The weather is always perfect in Los Angeles.
Camila & Leisha (in unison): True. You turn on the news and it's suns across the screen.
True or false: Nobody walks in L.A.
Camila: [Starts singing Missing Persons.]
Leisha: True. I tried once, but then I just felt out of place.
True or false: Everyone in L.A. has had plastic surgery.
Leisha: Just Cam.
True or false: There are famous people everywhere you look.
Camila: [Looks at Leisha who stars on Showtime's The L-Word.] Umm...
Leisha: No, not really.
Camila: I mean, well, sometimes you go to the grocery store and someone looks familiar, but you're not sure who they are.
Leisha: So, you're saying it's true then.
Camila: Well, um ... maybe.
(Side note: Camila and Leisha totally freaked out when they saw Ron Jeremy at two in the morning on Hollywood Blvd. They ran over to us and asked us to unpack everything and film them together)
Fast forward one night to the green room at the Roxy. We're testing microphones or something and in walks Clea DuVall (of The Faculty) and Freddie Prinze, Jr. (of Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed). I mean, we think it was him, we're not sure. He looked familiar. Anyway, Clea walks up and introduces herself to me, then an interesting conversation ensued about the Northern/Southern California divide. "Northern California is great, the only problem is you guys hate people from Southern California." "No we don't." "Yes you do, I lived there in Marin while I was working on a movie. I know."
Now, I can't speak for the millions of people I live with North of the invisible divide, but I have to say, L.A. has grown on me. I hope you enjoy the tour.
