The Borrowed Blog: Sex, Sales & Saviors

Sex and the City 2 films at Coopers BeachThe Sex and the City 2 crew bused in a bevy of extras and parking lot full of Mercedes to Coopers Beach this week to film scenes for the franchises upcoming sequel. Even though Southampton won't be the town getting the big screen mention, the village is surely content with the revenue generated from the three day film shoot.  [EH Press]

While it's definitely a buyers marker, with Matt Lauer purchasing a cozy cottage in Southampton and Tuesday Weld's Surfside Avenue listing finally closing, it seems some people still prefer to pilfer from famous listings than actually purchase them.  [Curbed Hamptons]

Alec Baldwin, Joy Behar, Jonathan Tisch, U.S. Rep Tim Bishop, Steven Gaines and photographer Peter Beard are just a few of the notable local supporters fighting to save WLIU-FM. Here's to hoping they can pull a rabbit out of their hat before Wednesday!  [AP]

Jessica Seinfeld Is No CopycatOn the upside, a New York Federal Judge has ruled that Jessica Seinfeld is no culinary copycat and that consumers are not confused. On the downside, my niece still won't eat broccoli no matter what we stuff it in.  [Newsday]

After being pulled over by Westhampton Beach Village Police for crossing a double yellow line at 12:55 AM, Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot failed field sobriety tests, refused a breathalyzer, and was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated. Now the Supervisor is fighting back and claiming the arresting officers were “overzealous.”  And, in a statement sure to make M.A.D.D. mad, she also insinuates that her arrest may have been political “payback.”  [LI Press]

The Montauk Yacht Club is looking to add 48,000 square feet of condos to their recently renovated Star Island property. One concerned citizen stepped forward at a recent East Hampton Town planning board meeting to say they don't want the proposed expansion “to look like a Wal-Mart.”  To which we can only imagine M.Y.C. owner and real estate tycoon Andrew Farkas responding with, “What’s a Wal-Mart?”  [Curbed Hamptons]
