The Rich Acting Like Children

This just goes to show that even the rich are childish and petty at times. Or maybe we should say, especially the rich are childish and petty!

There's a recent battle between two ritzy neighborhoods near Beverly Hills that's made it's way into the legal system.

The problem involves those that live in North Beverly Park, which includes people like Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy and Reba McEntire as residents among its 64 mansions.

The other part of the court battle deals with those living in the smaller 16-home South Beverly Park community, which includes names like Samuel L. Jackson, Magic Johnson, and movie producer Richard Zanuck.

So what's the problem between the North and the South?

It began when the NBP Homeowners association started to restrict access to a road that residents of SBP had been using freely for over 20 years.

Under the new restrictions, the SBP residents could enter through the northern gates at Mulholland Drive. However, their relatives, staff, vendors, guests, nannies, gardners, contractors, etc would need to take detours as long as seven miles on Benedict Canyon or Coldwater Canyon drives to get in.

So back in March 2006, the NBP homeowners group sent the SBP group a letter demanding they "pay their fair share of costs we [the north association] are incurring for maintenance of the roads, gates and security" in the amount of $121,000 a year.

However, the South complains that documents "made clear that all of the residents of both . . . were to have free and full access through the north gates."

Attorneys for both side, which did not comment on the case, are to make their closing arguments on Friday in Santa Monica Superior Court.

Looks like money can't buy happiness.

    The amount of money a person has is directly proportional to how big of an asshole they are.
