…is our movie girl who lives between California and India.  If they would let her sleep at the theater, she probably would.  Her diet consists of vats of popcorn and Jr. Mints… oh and Diet Dr. Pepper.  We love her anyhow.  She’s finishing up school where she is naturally majoring in film.  One day we will be writing about her on Hollywood Hiccups.


… is well… our favorite guy living in Paris! He’s here to lend us his deep thoughts when he feels the urge. (**sarcasm**) You won’t find a cooler, more chill dude on the planet. From sports, movies, and music to the latest scandal, Guy is the all around GUY…. we love him!


…is our resident music lover and another Canadian living in Montreal.  She’s got a passion for music that not only includes all the big names you’ve already heard of, but also the up and coming artists and groups.  She’s in the process of firing up her own, indie production company where we know she will rule…. but hopefully still have time for us.


Is a great gossipy gossip that we just couldn’t live without here at Hollywood Hiccups….When she isn’t spreading the news of Hollywood here, you will most likely find her on Rodeo Drive….  window shopping.  Yes, retail is her second passion.


is a former College professor in Halifax, Nova Scotia and is now retired who lives, eats and breaths celebrity news.  She enjoys traveling and genealogy and loves her granddaughter.  “I’m pretty, but I’m not beautiful. I sin, but I’m not the devil. I’m good, but I’m not an angel.” -Marilyn Monroe

Renier Palland….

Growing up in South Africa, Renier has always been inspired by the beauty of his country and the stories of his nation. A proud South African, Renier has a penchant for doing things out of the ordinary, never quite following the rules of life.  Renier is a scientific dreamer. He enjoys writing, poetry, film and art and splices it all together with a big dollop of quantum physics, quantum paradoxes and the secrets of the Universe.  Renier is quirky, awkward, vegetarian, slightly crazy, spiritual, a massive film boffin, animal lover, cat obsessed, amateur astronomer, celebrity enthusiast, reality t.v. boffin, Gleek, Zombie Apocalypse planner and an Agony Aunt for every person who meets him.
