Les Firestein, producer of "The Drew Carey Show" and "Wanda at Large", has become embroiled in a neighborhood brouhaha over his attempt to build a treehouse for his 18 month old daughter.
The structure sits within three eucalyptus trees in Firestein’s backyard and is composed of reclaimed wood and vintage stained glass from South America. It includes an aerial deck highlighting views of the neighborhood and cost over $50,000.No comment from the 18 month old, however her publicist was quoted as saying the surgeon can go fuck himself.
Next-door-neighbor Richard Fleming, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, complains the treehouse has a direct view into his backyard swimming pool and hot tub. City building inspectors have suspended work temporarily, noting that the structure’s size requires a building permit.
