Glee’s Damian McGinty on His “Girlfriend”: 5AM Phone Calls, Skype, and Missing Sleep
Damian McGinty (Rory) has been on our radar since we first heard his Irish lilt on The Glee Project’s first season. And while his dating life has unfurled in front of our eyes on Glee, we are so curious about who he’s seeing in real life.
Last we heard, he was too busy to date. He told Wetpaint Entertainment last year, “There's always been a girl in my life who is an incredible person, and who I absolutely love” but that things were “a little crazy” in his life and he hadn’t been able to connect at the time.
So, when he told the Derry Journal recently that he had a “girlfriend” that was causing him to miss sleep over early phone calls and skype dates, we were excited... especially considering he is flying home to Ireland from LA soon.
But before you celebrate or cry, we have to clarify: he’s not talking about his love life. Nope, rather Damian has started a couple of businesses in Ireland with his friend Oran O’Carroll. “These businesses have somehow turned into a girlfriend in a weird way,” the actor reports. “Getting calls from Oran at 5am Los Angeles time to be on a Skype meeting in 30 minutes, my sleep schedule is slightly mad.”
With a new EP already topping the charts and his return to Gleeon the horizon, we doubt he’ll be changing his Facebook relationship status anytime soon. Shucks.
