Another Planned Community. Is It Really ‘A Good Thing’?

martha.jpegPerris, a city that is known for … let’s see, oh yeah, nothing, is slated to become the site of a 125-house Martha Stewart/KB Home planned community by the end of the year.

Residents concerned about the potential cookie-cutter look of the homes — well, they shouldn’t be looking at a planned community. Particularly not one that promise to “feature homes inspired by Martha’s personal residences in Maine, Connecticut and New York.”

We have no idea why this media mogul mashed up with KB. But we think we know why KB thought Martha was so attractive. Bruce Karatz, KB’s CEO, is divorced from Sandra Lee, the Food Network’s Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee.

So our guess is he’s been lonely for another nationally known quasi-housewife to help mind the hearth. Whaza matter, Bruce, Nigella, turn you down?
