Let’s talk about my firstest, bestest, awesomest self-united husband and future best friend David Conrad. Boys might want to bloop-bloop-bloop, but the ladies might want to stick around.
1. First, readers Wayne and RuthAnn sent me a link from the Wall Street Journal showing that David’s Strip District loft is for sale.
3,300 square feet, one bedroom, two baths. Monthly charges $250/month, taxes $13,000/year.
DETAILS: David Conrad, a Pittsburgh native who stars in CBS’s drama series “Ghost Whisperer,” combined two units to create this massive brick-and-concrete space. Glassed garage doors open to reveal two balconies, which are inlaid with tile mosaics. There are no interior walls: A soaking tub sits at the back of the loft, and one of the toilets is tucked away in a corner.
My first thought was, “Look how pretty!”
My second thought was, “Wait. Is David leaving Pittsburgh?! Oh. Hell. No.”
My third thought was, “Hmm. That basement dungeon of mine might be getting some use soon. I wonder if the shackles will be too small for his ankles and I wonder if he’ll object when I offer to shave his face for him.”
My fourth thought was, “I am going get to the bottom of this shit.”
So I did.
The word from David via email is that he is not leaving Pittsburgh; he is just “downsizing” to a much smaller place.
And also he indicated that the bathrooms are actually huge, so a big fat whatever to the WSJ. Uh, that’s MY big fat whatever, not David’s. I’m sure David’s would be more like, “Forsooth. The misinformation provided by those jackals at the Journal is limitless and also, I love PittGirl.”
So in summation, David Conrad will not be forever shackled to a wall in my basement and kept guard by my two ferocious poop-eating terriers.
Bottom of shit. Gotten to.
2. In addition to not leaving the Burgh, according to the Ghost Whisperer producers, David is also NOT leaving the show.
That’s his photo from the TV Guide article.
“Surprisingly, the actor doesn’t own a place in Los Angeles, but in Pittsburgh, his hometown: “I feel like I contribute more economically if I’m still part of that community.”
4. Finally, David’s movie Tamas about his beloved Kiski teacher is opening the Three Rivers Film Festival this Friday (tickets here) and you can also catch it cheaper on November 22.
David will be at the screening this Friday. Tell him PittGirl sent you and please, remember your lines.
