The Hamptons Are Afraid the Kardashians Will Ruin Their Brand

khloe and kourtneyWith Memorial Day weekend behind us, the summer season in the Hamptons is officially underway. Only this year, the Hamptons crowd is afraid that their posh and glittery getaway spot is being tarnished by interlopers.

And the most notable among the interlopers are the Kardashians, two of which — Khloe and Kourtney — will be filming their reality show, Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons, out there.

According to The New York Daily News

Society publicist R. Couri Hay, who’s been summering in the Hamptons since the 1960s, laughs that “the old money are in horror about the arrival of the Kardashians. The locals are always happy that the summer business is coming in, but also terrified of losing that level of perfection that people who go to the Hamptons want.”

And it’s not just the Kardashians. Other people (gasp!) who aren’t the normal Hamptons sort are spending their days at the restaurants and beaches. In part, this is because the Jersey Shore was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. In part it’s because, like anything else, the Hamptons has a name and people want to check it out for themselves to see what all the hubbub is about.

Locals are so angry, they’ve taken to social media to post pictures of the bad behavior on Facebook and a contractor with high-end clients has created a Twitter account, @HamptonsBorn.

It’s a virtual cry for the riff raff to get off their well-manicured lawns. Only problem is that it’s making people a lot of money.

Khloe Kardashian’s Publicist Meets an Untimely End on ‘L&O’

Khloe Kardashian takes a guest turn on Law & Order: L.A. The plot: her publicist is murdered and it has something to do with the publicist’s decision to outfit Kardashian in something that makes her “ass look like a pancake.” Well then we say she deserved to be killed! Clip above.

T-Mobile Offering Free Smartphones for V-Day

On Wednesday, we tweeted about the T-Mobile special, offering free smartphones this weekend. Here’s a video to promote the promotion, starring Khloe Kardashian. There are 30 devices on T-Mobile’s freebie list, and they’ll be giving them away Saturday and Sunday to customers signing new two-year contracts.

The video doesn’t really say a whole lot about the free phones offer, but we feel the love.
