After Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Kanye West suggested that the reality actress deserved a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the organization has come out to say that there was basically no chance of that happening.
“We don’t have a category for reality stars on the Walk of Fame,” spokeswoman Ana Martinez told the New York Daily News.
And why not? Well, what they do isn’t really deserving, she said.
“They’re not giving a performance, it’s just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV,” she said. “We honor people who’ve acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And it’s the same with music, people who maybe have gold records.”
West declared that Kardashian should get a star during a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
But Martinez said though it was nice that West was advocating for Kardashian, it simply isn’t going to happen.
“I understand that Kanye loves his girlfriend, but that’s not the way to go about getting a star – on national TV without checking into whether or not she qualifies, which she does not,” Martinez said.
