To hear Chace Crawford talk to Interview about his apartment search, it doesn't really seem like he's moving out of his two-year apartment with Gossip Girl co-star Ed Westwick because one or the other of them is a slob. "I'm obsessive-compulsive about the placement and cleanliness of my things. But I'm not always the best, so I had a housekeeper come every two weeks," he told writer Chris Bollen. "It was pretty immaculate, I have to say. It had its down points, but Ed and I ran a good ship there for a while." Also, from his description of his last move, Chace's real-estate outlook seems pretty down-to-earth:
They give you, like, a $7,000 relocation fee, which goes a long way if you're like my buddy shooting Friday Night Lights in Austin, Texas, but in New York you have to deal with a $7,000 broker's fee. It takes more than double that to move and set everything up ... So I called up Ed and was like, "Hey, man, I'm going to New York tomorrow. Do you want to room with me?" He's like [faking British accent], "Yeah, why not?" So I looked around and sent him a few pics of the place I found, and he said [faking British accent], "Is there any extra room for guest bedrooms?" I was like, "What are you talking about? This is New York. What do you want, a game room? Let's just make space for a Ping-Pong room as well."
Scratch that. This isn't down-to-earth, it's downright terrifying. If Chace Crawford can barely afford to move, we're all motherchucked.
