Kim Kardashian’s Reality Show with Kourtney is Causing Big Headaches


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.”

  1. When the residents of DiLido Isle, the Sunset Islands, and North Bay Road refused to allow Kim and Kourtney Kardashian to move into their neighborhoods to film their upcoming reality show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, we kinda figured they were just being, well, uppity snobs.

  2. The ANC asked DDOT representative, Damon Harvey, questions about adding more Residential Parking Permit (RPP) zones and extending the hours for restrictions on parking. Harvey told the ANC and neighbors that residents have the right to set the hours of the parking restrictions anywhere between the hours of 7 a.m. and midnight. Harvey intimated that there is an effort to have the District Council consider extending that limit to 2 a.m.

  3. This morning, Ward 6 Councilmember and mayoral candidate Tommy Wells introduced a bill that aims to fix the enforcement issue. “The feedback from [the District Department of Transportation] has been that they cannot honor the agreements made by the neighborhoods that support higher-density infill development,” Wells said in introducing the measure. The Neighborhood Parking Protection Act of 2013 “gives the mayor, through DDOT, the authority needed to grant a property owner’s request to make the property ineligible for residential parking permits when they’ve negotiated an agreement with their neighbors to let the project move forward,” Wells said.
