Reality TV stars Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have lush green lawns even though Californians are supposed to be conserving water in the fourth year of a devastating drought.
According to the Daily Mail, photographer John Chapple recently flew over and took pictures of the houses and beautiful lawns of the Kardashians, Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Lopez, Hugh Hefner and Jessica Simpson.
California passed an emergency law last week that will force cities to cut back on water. However, the only penalty for violating the new water rule is a $100 fine.
“The [Kim] Kardashian flowers and hedges are right in our face,” an unidentified resident told The New York Post. “It’s disgusting. You walk by and you can smell the freshness."
Kardashian spokesman Ina Treciokas told the New York Post, "Kim takes this drought seriously and has made some amendments to the property. She has no problem letting her grass go brown."
However, aerial photos show it to be nice and green.
Streisand's spokesman Ken Sunshine stated, “She has cut down her water usage by over 50 percent in the last several months and she is going to take further steps to conserve water."
An unidentified source said, “[Lopez] has been pretty dismissive. She has said, 'Oh, so I’ll just pay some fines, what are they going to do?'"
