A new reality show has run into opposition in the town where it has been trying to film. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the East Hampton hamlet of Montauk appears to be shutting down Bravo’s “Summer House.”
“The Town of East Hampton has denied the show’s permit application to film outdoors on town property,” the story reports, quoting local surfer/photographer James Katsipis saying: “They can’t shoot on the beach. They can’t shoot on the street. They have to be on private property, and pretty much everyone has told them, ‘No way!’”
“Other Montauk residents have vowed to disrupt Bravo’s camera crew with foghorns and mirrors, and one even suggests the townfolk wear outlandish costumes to ruin scenes,” The Post adds.
A source at Bravo downplayed the problem, saying: “This show is not about Montauk and never was — it’s about the people in this house. We are shooting all over the Hamptons. So we have plenty of options.”
