Why is Kim Kardashian ineligible for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Kim Kardashian - Hollywood Walk of Fame - Ineligible

During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night, Kanye West lamented the fact Kim Kardashian is ineligible for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“Maybe if you’ll get a star on the Walk of Fame for kissing a**,” Kanye speculated. “They said something like they’re not gonna put my girl on the Walk of Fame because she’s a reality star. People are so so dated and not modern. There’s no way a Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame.”

Kanye’s rant was likely inspired by a Hollywood Walk of Fame spokeswoman’s dismissal of Kim’s goals — more than one year ago. The war of words began in August 2012 when Kim told V Magazine she hopes to earn a star.

“I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold,” Kim said.

In response, a representative from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said it’s not just a matter of “if you believe, you can achieve.”

“She is a reality star. We don’t do reality stars. She needs to get a real acting job then come to us,” the representative told Hollyscoop.

In fact, earning a star requires even more than a resume filled with top acting honors. Based on the Hollywood Walk of Fame nomination form, celebrities hoping for immortalization at the tourist stop have quite a few hoops to jump through…

Julianne Moore - Hollywood Walk of Fame - 2013 Inductions
^ Four-time Academy Award-nominee Julianne Moore is the most recent celebrity to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The first step in the process is submitting an official application and guaranteeing to fundraise $30,000 if selected. In the paperwork, the entertainer must detail professional qualifications in the areas of motion pictures, television, radio, recording or live theater. He must also prove civic and/or community involvement.

Finally, each celebrity must check a box in the application saying, “If selected, I will participate in person at the Walk of Fame star dedication ceremony.”

That last bit about being willing to throw a big media event shouldn’t be a big deal for Kim. But, she’s really got to get working on the acting: The Walk of Fame committee requires at least five years of entertainment experience before a nomination will be considered.

Do you think Kim Kardashian should get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

  • NO NO NO!

    Hell no!! She is a giant joke and doesn’t even have an ounce of talent in her fake fat ass to even come to par with the actually actors and actresses who have stars and are on the walk of fame… Now if they made a walk of shame.. She should be the first star…

  • twelfthnight

    It’s the walk of FAME, not INFAMY Kim.

  • Paige Myrissa

    I recently watched Temptation:Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. Kim had a small role in it, and she was awful. So stiff, so awkward. It wasn’t surprising but it was still painful to watch. I don’t see her every getting a star.

    • MsJoanne

      She had a role in Disaster Movie and her role was severely panned. Girlfriend deserves a star as much as I do.

  • Claudia

    Omg no! The only thing I’ve ever seen her ‘act’ in was Drop Dead Diva, and she was horrible.. zero acting skills.. Why does the K-clan think they own the world?

    • ……

      They actually canceled drop dead diva because of Kim’s appearance.. On the show and the back lash it got.. Thankfully it was brought back but she basically ruined the whole show at one point..

      • Claudia

        ha! really?? I’m glad it was brought back too! I had no idea it was because of her.. and she thinks she deserves a star on the walk of fame! pffft

        • ………..

          I will try and find the article where the guy who created the show said it was canceled because the viewers of lifetime do not want to see any Kardatrash (he didnt use those words) on the show

  • Are you serious?!?!?

    She has no right to have a star on the Walk of Fame!! In no way does she deserve it either! REAL famous icons like Frank Sinatra, Betty White, Jeanne Cooper, and other amazing stars in history DESERVED one, and got one because they are the definitions of REAL stars!

    • Yaya

      Well, Paris Hilton has one. Just saying.

      • MsJoanne

        In Moscow. Maybe Russia’ll give a star to Kim, too.

      • monique

        She does?????

  • Sweet Venom

    Why should she get a star? What’s her talent? I hope they don’t start adding reality stars, that would make the prestige of earning a star diminish.

  • Tina Hannah

    I think having a sex tape overshadows the whole humanitarian aspect, which she also hasn’t shown. Its a fact that she won’t be considered if she doesn’t do all of those things. Why can’t she accept that? That’s like vying for a phD just because a reality star hasn’t done it before. Still requires the work.

  • GingerAnn1212

    Never. She has no talent.

  • Feisty

    Simple because she’s NOT A STAR OF ANY KIND!! If I worked hard and had my name on the walk of fame and Kim received one, I’d ask for mine to be removed!! They can put her star on the JOKE OF FAME area.

  • SS

    Ryan Seacrest has one…it might be for radio though. I love that Kim K has been turned down by the committee.

  • Hannah

    Why not. She might not have any real talent but her name will already go down in history (whether for bad reasons or not) – Kardashians has been one of the most popular shows on television for a little over 5 years now. We have to change with the times and realize that reality TV (which is still heavily scripted so it should count as acting experience) is becoming equally as popular as scripted sitcoms and with all the money she makes the $30,000 would be like us dropping $5 on a latte at Starbucks. As far as the humanitarian side goes – she does do charity work and even though she is conceited, overall she is a good person and kind. She’s never killed anybody or done any grave wrong. It won’t affect anyone’s lives here any if she gets one or not. So why all the hate for this woman you don’t even know?

    • jeswalsh .

      I highly suggest that if a reality star should get a star on the walk of fame it not start with a kardashian. Anyone else is better than her or her minions. Please don’t put these ideas out there. The hate towards the Kardashians is because they are immoral, self-centered and mean spirited people. If you haven’t seen it in this past year then you are blind and deaf. They should disappear instead of asking for stars.

      • nicky1

        I’m totaly with Hannah.

        • Miguel Giraldo

          because your dumb

          • Hannah

            Yeah Nicky is “dumb” but you’re the one who can’t even use the proper form of “you’re.”

  • Sikedelic

    Doesn’t the porn industry have their own awards for people like her?

    • No No no..

      Even they were disappointed with her performance in that department..

  • nico

    Sure. I don’t know most of the names on those stars. the whole thing is a joke as it is. Kim would put the stake in the heart of whats left of it.

  • Annoyed

    Is this for real? She is not a actress nor any person with talent besides posing half nude or releasing sex tapes. Maybe she should get a star for her terrible crying face, which I do enjoy. Shame on this post, what is next Courtney Stodden trying to get a star?

  • makinbakin

    She has no talent except porn……..if that was talent ?”

  • Debra Gardner

    She does not deserve a star.She does not act or sing and has no talent.

  • nicky1

    Why not? She’s beatiful and glamorous,one of the sexiest,hottest bodies today!,sucessfull, a reality star, an icon in popular culture today. Want more?

  • Nicole Little

    But she’s the star of a successful show!

  • Shilo

    It would be a bad idea. I can see men urinating on it saying , “look…I’m Ray J!” It would just be bad and degrading for all involved.

  • Miguel Giraldo

    Hahaha..good one Hannah..u got me there! two points for u..dumb..
    Im saying she dumb because Kim Kardashian and her family add no artistic value
    to the Industry. The Hollywood stars of Fame show numerous well talented ARTIST
    who have received many awards of praise
    for there work. Allowing Kim K to get a Hollywood Star only dilute the
    significance/value to the Hollywood star and what is represents. She is not an
    ARTIST in anyway. sex tapes and clothes that sell at Sears do not qualify.. sorry

  • Candice

    She’s totally pointless, A cheesy reality show, an amateurishness sex tape and dating famous blokes is definitely NOT star quality – She’s eligible for the WALK OF FILTH

  • Minerva

    I think they need to dedicate an alley for these reality stars..put the stars between the trash cans and the sewer overflow! It’ll give the bums a place to pee!

  • monique

    No no. No star for her, or any of her dysfunctional family.
