Yep, they're illegal in Malibu, but MTV set up a party house next door to us in the Cove.
**Malibu's own Hans Laetz writes to say party organizers at the house pulled a permit and all was legal and aboveboard, if a bit loud. Though the workers at the house told us the party was being filmed for MTV, Hans says the permit was pulled by DKNY. In any event, the tents are down, the show is over and the sounds of coyotes and frogs rule our little canyon once again. Thanks, Hans!
