No reality TV stars to grace the Hollywood Walk of Fame

No reality TV stars to grace the Hollywood Walk of Fame

They are one of the wealthiest familys in Hollywood, but you won’t see the Kardashian name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame any time soon.

The same goes for Paris Hilton, Jersey Shore‘s Snooki or any Real Wives stars.

This was made clear when a spokesperson for the Walk of Fame wrote on their official Facebook page saying, “Someone asked if we give reality show characters stars? Hell to the No!”

Vice president for media relations and producer for the Hollywood Walk of Fame Ana Martinez, told CNN that adding reality stars to the mix was not an option right now.

“It’s just not on the radar for us right now,” she said.

Martinez said that nominees need to meet the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce committee’s criteria which includes awards and honours in entertainment, philanthropic work, longevity in the field and the willingness to agree to the ceremony and pay $30,000 for the star’s installation and upkeep on the street.

Despite some reality personalities already having stars, including American Idol host and E! News anchor Ryan Seacrest for his work in radio and Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons of KISS for their music careers.

But it seems the rules aren’t set in stone with Martinez saying, “We just want to bring the tourists to Hollywood.”
