How I Met Your Mother and Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Alyson Hannigan hadn't long moved into a new house in Los Angeles with her husband when a visiting friend first informed her that a man had just followed them out of the house. Since that initial sighting, Hannigan took to keeping a chalkboard where she thought he dwelt the most in hopes that he might leave her a message.

Actress Kate Hudson once related the story of seeing a woman with no face in a London home she and her mother, Goldie Hawn, had rented.

Designer Cynthia Rowley and her husband were living in a charming country home in Greenwich, Connecticut with the spectre of a woman whose face was always obscured by a gray scarf. The couple had encountered the manifestation several times. One Christmas, the designer had hung a large wreath above her fireplace, but was warned by her husband not to light the candles on the mantle. A sensible statement--and one with which Rowley would normally agree--but some sinister compulsion forced her hand nonetheless, as if she had no control over her actions. No sooner had she lit the candles, than the the wreath erupted in flames. The couple managed to escape but when the local firefighters put out the conflagration they were a bit unnerved. One quietly asked Rowly if she knew who had built the home. Rowley confessed she did not. She then learned from the firefighter that the woman who haunts the home was the heiress to the Diamond Match estate. She was burned and scarred from a fire in her father's factory when she was only a teenager.

Singer/Actress Demi Lovato recalls an incident from her childhood when she attempted to close her closet door when she was arrested by the sight of a young girl dressed in 19th century attire standing inside. When she told her mother what she saw, he mother recalled an incident when Demi was five. She was playing in her room alone and talking to herself. On the floor was a picture of a little girl dressed just as Demi described. Her mother asked Demi whom she was talking to. "My best friend, Victoria."

Months prior to his body having been found hanging in the closet of a Bangkok hotel, actor David Carradine had taped a segment for a program called Celebrity Ghost Stories on the Biography channel. Carradine explained that he had been tormented by the notion that his late wife's deceased husband was residing within the closet of their bedroom.

Cultural icon Cher has stated on several occasions she believes that her Malibu home is haunted--in a friendly fashion--by her late husband, Sonny Bono. Lights flickering even when they are turned off have been a sure indication that Bono is present.
