    Johnny Closes on 1.1 Million Dollar Condo

    http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2011/02..._to_manha.html


    Had no idea he had that kind of money. Wonder how long it will take for him to run through it.

    A wonderful place to house his Faberge collection (and the USFS Readers Choice Trophy that could not be mentioned in the NBC Nationals telecasts). Way to go, Johnny!

    So much for his claims of poverty... Gues all those shows in Japan pay pretty well...
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    This is just about the stupidest purchase ever for somebody with his career trajectory.

    His career trajectory? Do you know what that is?

    Has the USFS Readers Choice Trophy winner *ever* been mentioned in the NBC Nationals telecasts? Aren't there more important things to give air time to - like, you know, the people who are actually competing? Please. I don't think the USFS specifically told NBC not to mention it this year just because Johnny won it.

    I was legitimately asking if you know what his career plans are out of interest. Your stupid, snarky remarks are not necessary (plus I'm not sure what Canada has to do with this).

    i am sorry, i am not nice, but now hopefully he can stop complaining about needing money.
    if he needs it now he can just sell his condo.
    i know petty. but i think he had money before just not what he wanted, now he got want he wanted.

    It's Johnny's money and he will have to deal with the consequences if he can't afford the condo in the future.

    For all we know Bravo could have arranged the condo so they can add him to the cast of RHoNY (isn't he friendly with one of the women there?)

    He's actually getting a pretty good deal for a condo in that neighborhood.

    Agree, the price sounds pretty good and it's pretty consistent with what other "almost rich" people pay. It's all relative. You have to remember that a small 2br on the Prospect Park side of Brooklyn goes for $500k or more.

    Johnny was selected by, uhhhhh, the majority of USFS Skating Magazine readers. Would've made a lot of viewers happy. Just like Evan fans were happy to see their man sitting behind the bullet-proof skybox, via NBC's telephoto zoom lens, more than once.

    From the little article, it appears that Johnny's move into the $1.1million condo will be filmed for the next installment of his reality show. Quite a step up from last year's move to a smaller, ground-floor flat in New Jersey. It could be that the cable network is pitching in $$$ and/or Johnny's Angels assisting? And the $1.1 mill doesn't include the furnishings and decor that this sort of abode requires. He could easily spend $100,000s on top-flight furniture, artwork beside the Faberges, etc.

    Are you on crack?
    Everyone knows how the award winner is selected, although BTW that would be by the majority of *voters*, not the majority of *readers*. Nevertheless, AFAIK the Readers Choice Award winner has never been shown on the NBC broadcast. The fact that Evan was shown on this particular broadcast has nothing to do with Johnny or any previous Readers Choice Award winner not being shown. Unless you're a paranoid conspiracy theorist.

    No, I'm on "Johnny"!!! Johnny is such a celebrity-character. He's not just "another former national champ" or Olympian sitting in the audience. C'mon, let us have our fun.

    Congrats Johnny! I believe this is his first purchase of a home.

    In the skating world, that's exactly what he is.

    He's chosen to take his career in a different direction, which is fine, but I don't see why his non-skating exploits would make his presentation a higher priority on the Nationals broadcast than seeing the skating, especially when the precedent has been that the Reader's choice award isn't shown.

    Personally, I was happy that we got to see it on IN.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    One would have to assume that a bank has given him a loan so there is some evidence of the ability to pay his mortgage. Best of luck and congrats on the home ownership to Johnny.
