From catching stars shopping for crystals to spotting sweaty celebs on your morning hike to hearing about a Real Housewife losing her baby swan, LA is filled with "only in LA" situations. Capturing these hilarious snapshots is singer/actress/filmmaker Rory Uphold, who just launched a new web series called Only in HelLA (pronounced "Hell-Lay").
"I was born and raise in LA and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but at the same time I realize it's completely ridiculous," Uphold explains. "It's the best/worst place in the world and this is my love/hate letter to the city."
While we don't agree with her semi-disdain for the best coast, we do love ourselves an LA-inspired comedy break. (See: Sh*t People in LA Say, LA Made Me This Way and Candidly Nicole.) Catch a teaser of Episode One, showcasing the awkward moment when you're trying on clothing next to a Victoria's Secret model, and watch full episodes here.
