The Hamptons are not ready to be taken over by Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian. Within hours of the news breaking that the reality stars will be shooting Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons this summer in the upper crust Long Island, New York Summer paradise, the locals took to Twitter to share their feelings about the coming Kardashian invasion.
The reality sisters often shoot a Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off during the summer, with previous seasons following them living it up and opening a new DASH store in Miami and one with Kim Kardashian in New York City. Remember that one?? It had the awkward addition of Kris Humphries?!?! E! doesn't seem to play that season over and over in re-runs. Wonder why?

Kourtney and Khloe probably need to hold on tight, because I think it is going to be a bumpy ride. After the announcement yesterday, the locals took to Twitter with one resounding message — 'there goes the neighborhood'!
Radar Online even spoke to Deputy Editor Nicole Barylski and Executive Editor & Publisher Nicole B. Brewer of the area’s leading local website, Hamptons.com, who alluded to the fact that the reality powerhouses may affect their economy and not necessarily for the better.
“Having the Kardashian family spotted out and about in the Hamptons is not new news. They also aren’t the first reality stars to film out here. We’ve had the Real Housewives franchise film out here for years,” they said in a joint statement.
“The fact that they’re going to put down roots out here is a big deal because it’s going to impact the economy somehow. People will either decide to avoid the Kardashian store completely, which could affect the surrounding stores or on the flip side you could have the place so completely and utterly mobbed that hopefully the businesses around it will benefit from the overflow.”
“Filming when it happens will most likely bring a lot of attention to the locations, but seeing as though the spots won’t be known in advance you can’t plan for it or around it.You just have to deal with it when it happens.”
I think that Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian may have found a filming locale that is a little above their pay grade. The Hamptons is home to A-listers, Wall-Street-types and the Barefoot Contessa. It just doesn't seem like a good fit to me. And I believe the locals agree!
