You know, here’s the thing: When you agree to let E! film a Kim Kardashian reality TV show in your neighborhood, you really should expect some problems. And that’s exactly what’s happening in South Florida, where some residents who live near where ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’ is filming are extremely unhappy. What’s going on?
Residents in the posh, gated, Miami neighborhood of San Souci gave the green light for Kim Kardashian and company to film ‘Kourtney & Kim…’ in a rented mansion in the neighborhood. The rental cost? Around $300,000. This is a pretty common practice for reality TV shows: They come in, rent some fancy digs for their stars to live in for filming purposes, and then, when the filming is over, they split. Sometimes there are issues — and that certainly seems like the case where Kim and Kourt are concerned.
The biggest issue seems to be a parking problem. One of the San Souci residents is furious that Kim Kardashian’s crew is parking in front of his house. He’s gone so far as to offer Kim’s producers a vacant lot as a parking area — for a steep price ($500/day). That’s crazy!
At least in this case, the whole fracas isn’t Kim K’s fault. Strangely enough, the crazy involves the actual neighborhood residents. In fact, according to the VP of the San Souci Home Owners Association, Richard Otero, Kim Kardashian and her sister, Kourtney, “are more than welcome” in the neighborhood. Otero went on to say that both are “considerate and very professional.”
