Hypocrite of the Week: Laurie David

Laurie David, ex-wife of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm writer Larry David, claims to be an ardent environmentalist and has used her new found fame and wealth to campaign on behalf of the NRDC, where she serves on the board, and in producing Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. Here are a few inconvenient facts about David’s lifestyle:

  • In 2005, David was cited for wetlands violations stemming from her construction of a fire pit, barbecue area, and children’s theater that resulted in the destruction of a pristine wildlife area;
  • Four years later, she was cited again for wetlands violations after destroying a marsh in order to build a private tennis court on her estate;
  • Her Hampton’s estate encompasses 14 acres and is composed of a 7-building compound;
  • She openly admits to flying across the country in a private jet to visit her other home in the hills above Santa Monica;

Another green with a “do as I say, not as I do” attitude? You don’t say.
