“The ‘Rush & Molloy’ column scared the rich, famous and celebrated in the city for 15 years,” the New York Daily News wrote of its longtime column. “They never knew what dirt George Rush and Joanna Molloy, famously the only married gossipeuses around, would spill on them.”
Oh how the tables have turned! The authors of “Scandal: A Manual,” have slapped their third-floor Tribeca loft on the market for $3.2 million, our sources says — okay, by sources we mean Streeteasy, public records and a broker. And they stand to make quite a bundle on the deal. According to Streeteasy, the couple paid just $431,000 for the loft in 1995. More proof that in NYC, patience pays.
Photos of the apartment in the boutique condo building at 68 Thomas Street reveal amenities fit for the celebrities the couple became famous for stalking. Think, three oversized north facing windows, two bedrooms, “a grand living room and dining room,” a wood-burning fireplace,” a floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcase, exposed brick and 13-foot ceilings throughout, according to the listing. We also spy quite a lot of music equipment. Could someone be plotting a career change?
And for anyone interested in keeping the couple’s gossip legacy alive, the apartment in the a-lister-filled downtown neighborhood is just steps from the Odeon — a longtime celebrity hangout.
“Nightlife, and luxury shopping right up the street in Soho,” the listing states. Just think of the potential for scandal and celebrity sightings!
Here’s a look inside their love nest.
