Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. McDreamy of “Grey’s Anatomy” fame, reportedly bought a home on Lake Jacksonville several years ago, and he’s been splitting his time between Texas and California ever since. And he’s not immune to Texas’ charms: He’s fallen in love with a little restaurant in Jacksonville called Sadler’s Kitchen. In particular, he’s fallen in love with their pies.

He posted a photo on his Facebook page on Monday with Jan Godwin, the woman who bakes the pies at the East Texas restaurant, writing that Godwin’s creations were “the best pies in Texas.” 

While we’re talking McDreamy, let’s talk about another “news” story you may have seen about him lately: a post claiming that he’s moving to New Braunfels. It’s been posted online by a satire website masquerading as a local news site and shared widely on Facebook. It says Dempsey told an unnamed magazine that he’s “tired of the L.A. lifestyle” and has decided to move to New Braunfels because the people are “genuine for one and… real. They’ll tell you what they think and I honestly find that refreshing.”

Sorry, folks, Dempsey never said that, and he’s not moving to New Braunfels. But he still loves Texas, and isn’t that all that really matters anyway?
