California in the midst of a historic
drought emergency, tonight some of the biggest names in hollywood find themselves in hot
water the kardashians dwyane wade sylvester stallone and kevin hart are among more than 2,000 customers who have been
water use, according to exceedance notices received from la Times NBC has not seen the documents, but a spokesman for the Los Virginias
Water District confirmed the contents of which our reservoirs are severely depleted the land is incredibly dry there is not much
water in June the district which supplies a large part of the Los Angeles district sets strict usage guidelines, including limiting residents to just eight minutes of outdoor
watering per week.
All right, so we're in my backyard now, but some
celebrities can't play their part in Kim and Kourtney Kardashian's properties with a combined surplus of 333,000 gallons of
water, enough to fill half an Olympic-size swimming pool at a home in Calabasas The Actor Kevin Hart exceeded his monthly budget by 519 percent in June. Sylvester Stallone's $18 million home gobbled up more than 533 percent more than his allotment and former NBA star Dwayne Wade and actress Gabrielle Union used a whopping 1,400 of the
water budget in their Hidden Hill Homes The couple told La Times in a statement stating that a pool issue, which has since been fixed, was to blame, adding that they will continue to make great efforts to fix the issue.
A rep for Stallone told NBC News the Rocky Star has more than 500 mature trees on the property that need
watering, adding that he is handling the situation responsibly and proactively. Herz and Kardashians representatives did not respond to NBC's request for comment. It doesn't matter if it's a celebrity, it doesn't matter if it's someone who doesn't have the same resources, everyone is treated exactly the same in solving it all right gotti schwartz is now live from los angeles scotty this is so strange because
celebrities claim to be environmentalists and these are big name
celebrities who are taking steps to curb their consumption. i guess they aren't but for those who aren't cutting back what can the city do money is clearly no object to some of these people with these huge houses yeah tommy you hit it right on the head how do you get someone to be themselves sticking to it when you have millions and millions of dollars and even huge fines are just a nuisance.
Well, you have to imagine good old fashioned grounding when we were kids. First come some warnings, then fines, then
water districts will slam a regulator on your
water main. I think we have a picture of one that will slow these down the river to your house to be basically a trickle so high
water pressure for these fancy villas forget it they leave them on for two weeks or until the owner promises to abide by it, if they don't rage then you're in for a m
water bottom As far as we know about 20 homes with the most egregious infractions have ones installed in salt, but no
celebrities we know of have made this list, so let's keep you posted real quick while I have you there are a few
celebrities bigger than Gotti Schwartz the Schwartz family was quoted as saying but me you're looking I understand that's my magic green tree It takes as long as we stick to it so that means stealing from the other plants in my garden and if I like having to take bath
water that tree I just don't want my grapefruits lose, they are so delicious, you know papa Schwartz had a green thumb who knew everything right.
