Freddie Fackelmayer is an ex-boyfriend of MTV reality show star and budding fashion designer Whitney Port. So who is Freddie Fackelmayer and how close to fame is he? Let’s count the degrees of separation between Freddie and fame.
1. Twitter: Freddiefackelm
Fackelmayer works in commercial real estate and could be posting candid photos of himself on Twitter, as freddiefackelm. Freddie Fackelmayer’s Top Tweets, if this is the real Freddy, will he please stand up? The freddiefackelm Twitter account appears to be valid, and if so here are some of Freddie Fackelmayer’s most revealing Tweets. (No capitalization was added or removed, this is how they were typed in by the poster). So who is Freddie?
He’s an odd duck: “sometimes i pretend to be normal but it gets boring, so i go back to being me.”
He’s deep: ” A change is as good as a rest”
He’s frustrated: “the early bird gets the worm… WHERE THE HELL IS MY WORM? Mornin to all u.”
2. Freddie Fackelmayer TwitPics
What better way to get photos of your model face out there than to post them publicly on TwitPics? You can also seem more candid and posed photos of Freddie Fackelmayer on his TwitPics account.
3. I Want (Publicity) Now! Will Standing Near an Ashley Greene Poster Help?
The photogenic Freddie Fackelmayer has also been seen with Ashley Greene, aka Alice Cullen in Twilight. Actually, the closest Freddie Fackelmayer got to Ashley Greene was posing by her magazine cover at the Maxim party on November 24, 2009.
4. Haiti Fashion Show Benefit = One Little Publicity Shot
Freddie Fackelmayer was seen recently at the I Want Now Haiti benefit fashion show on March 25, 2010 in the Big Apple. Photographers snapped pictures of Freddie Fackelmayer with Samantha Swetra, a sometimes seen secondary character on The City, an MTV spin-off show of The Hills.
Samantha Swetra has also posted some revealing (or just playful and flirty) Tweets on his Twitter page, including “don’t be cruel” and “missing you so much.marryme.”
5. Freddie’s Folly: Meet My Parent
Fackelmayer, of course, was the guy who famously brought his dad along on his second date with Whitney Port on The City. While the two dated for a time, love seems to have no been in the cards for the two.
In one of the most uncomfortable scenes ever aired on an unscripted MTV “reality” show (and, yes, there are many from which to choose), Freddie Fackelmayer invites then girlfriend Whitney Port to dinner at a post restaurant. While this sounds like a great first date, Freddie Fackelmayer showed himself to be socially inept by also inviting his father to dinner, without much warning for the unprepared Whitney Port.
The exchange between Whitney Port and Freddie Fackelmayer’s dad was a replay of the Rory Gilmore meets Logan Huntzberger’s rich, pretentious, assuming and condescending father. If Freddie Fackelmayer was trying to pull a “How to Lose a Girl in Five Dates” move, he succeeded with flying colors.
Freddy Fackelmayer did not stand much of a chance as a popular Whitney Port beau anyway, as the fan favorite was Jay Lyon.
