Gazing out at the Hollywood sign on a Los Angeles afternoon, Sparkle Calhoun of Center Line was excited to reflect on the whirlwind west coast trip she won from WWJ-TV.

“The trip is wonderful, I love everything about it,” Calhoun said immediately after watching a taping of “Dr. Phil.”

Calhoun was the grand prize winner in the L.A. Getaway contest, which means she collected airfare for two from Detroit to Burbank, Calif., four nights in a hotel in Los Angeles, ground transportation, tickets to watch a “Dr. Phil” show taping and a taping of “The Insider.” She comes home this weekend.

Calhoun took her friend Regina Williams, of Detroit, and the two were having a ball. They especially had a good time hanging with Kevin Frazier of “The Insider.”

“I love everything so much, I can’t even pick out anything specific,” Calhoun said. “Everyone was really, really friendly at The Insider, it was so laid back, they were so interpersonal. It was cool.”

After visiting “The Insider” and “Dr. Phil,” she planned to stop by Universal Studios, check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Calhoun won the contest by watching Dr. Phil every day from November 14th to November 18th on WWJ-TV and answering The Insider question of the day.

“I feel so lucky and blessed,” she said.

Watch “Dr. Phil” at 5 p.m. and “The Insider” at 6 p.m. weeknights on WWJ-TV CBS Detroit.
