The Kardashians’ new neighbors in North Miami are as unhappy about the reality TV stars’ presence in their midst as the sisters’ previous neighbors in Miami Beach!
"I'm already at war with the producers,” said Jeff Tomlinson, a Realtor who lives next door to the Northeast 120th Road mansion that Kim and Kourtney Kardashian will call home for the next three months.
“They have dozens of cars parked all over the place. I'm trying to sell a lot next door, and I can't get buyers on the property. There are paparazzi all over the place!”
The sisters are in town to film a new series for E!, Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. With just a couple days’ worth of scenes in the can, however, the cast and crew were driven out of not just one, but two, neighborhoods before landing in North Miami’s San Souci area.
The production company was denied a permit in Miami Beach under pressure of would-be neighbors in the Sunset Islands area.
Then, there was an attempt to settle down in North Miami Beach’s Eastern Shores, but that fell apart, too.
Finally, they found a brand spanking new six-bedroom mansion that, while not quite on the beach, has a great view on the area's condo high rises on the Intracoastal.
The 17,000-square-foot house is construction company owner Emilio Vega's, according to records. He didn't return calls for comment.
The community has a manned gate, but the guards don’t have the power to stop anyone from driving through because it is a public road.
“We did get a notice from the city about filming,” said another resident who asked to remain anonymous. “But I don’t think anyone paid attention. Now, everybody’s ticked off.”
It's going to be an expensive fall for out-of-work Broward football star Plaxico Burress: He just received a $1,000 traffic ticket, and he has to come up with $100,000 in back federal taxes.
The 35-year-old receiver allegedly was clocked by Broward County Sheriff's deputies at 50 mph over the 55 mph speed limit, according to court records.
If convicted, Burress will have to pay a $1,000 fine.
“He was not arrested or anything,” said Brad Cohen, Burress' Fort Lauderdale attorney. “It was filed as a traffic violation, which won't be a problem when it comes to his supervised release.”
Burress is still on supervised release after his New York gun conviction sent him to prison for two years.
And then, the former New York Giants Super Bowl hero will need to address his tax issues: The IRS just placed a lien on his $2 million Lighthouse Point home for failure to pay $98,064.76 in income taxes.
