Pretty soon, the Kardashians are just going to have to take a less popular city.

The residents of South Beach collectively campaigned against the filming of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami in their neighborhood.

Well, ok. "Campaigned" might be too strong of a word. They did, however, successfully drive Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and the 24-hour film crew they travel with out of their trendy neighborhood and over to North Miami Beach, 15 miles away.

A rep from Miami Beach's Office of Film and Print told RadarOnline.com that the sisters found a gated community to shack up in while they film, but apparently, the surrounding area of said gated community is less than desirable — or at least, less glamorous and exciting than South Beach.

“The area is known for its hourly hotels, strip clubs and high crime rate,” a source told Radar.

“It’s a far-cry from their usual posh digs, with just a 7-Eleven and an abandoned old bank close by.”

Filming for Kourtney and Kim Take Miami began on Wednesday — it premieres in January 2013.
