Hey Venditto, why don't you suggest a small movie studio instead of a mall at the Cerro Wire site?
Nobody should actually ever live on top of that toxic dump, so stop suggesting condos!

Bring back the Fokker's to Oyster Bay and they will come to see the film. Who cares about Jolie or Brad or this film or the stuck up Oyster Bay Town Hall.

I live part-time in the Hamptons and saw the coming attractions for the show and laughed because it looks nothing like the Hamptons. Most of it looked like California to me.

The "Hamptons elite" go to Southampton Hospital or to a walk-in clinic when they have an emergency, just like everybody else.

And the only time I ever see any of those sleazy, glitzy-looking girls who are supposed to be "Hamptons elite" is on a reality show, where they get trucked in by the producers. Things are laid-back here. I've seen tons of celebs and moguls. They're all dressed casually and behave quietly, not at all "elite." The only "elites" are the wannabes who are nobodies, or the brat children of people who are connected to show biz but aren't famous (I'm thinking of a certain SUV-driving daughter of an entertainment lawyer, and the children of some rock stars). By and large everyone gets along out here except for the contractors and workmen who try to rip everybody off because they assume everyone's rich. If you tried to have a medical practice devoted to housecalls for the rich and famous you'd go out of business. Most rich people have friends who are doctors and there are probably 3 doctors living on their block.

What "Hamptons" are you refering to?
South, East, Hampton Bays...? They're all different.

While I do hear what you "locals" are saying and agree with most, try to remember this is not a documentary but a television show that's not meant to be anymore real than "Hampton Heritage Hospital". I saw the first and second episodes and thought it was original, unique and refreshing. I don't know about you but if I see another reality show I might vomit.

Open your mind a little and enjoy some fictional entertainment.
