No Reality Stars on Walk of Fame

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The legendary Tinseltown landmark and tourist attraction Walk of Fame has been honoring talented actors, actresses, singers and artists since 1958, but has learned reality-TV stars won't be cemented in the Hollywood Walk of Fame anytime soon. "Someone asked if we give reality showcharacters stars? Hell to the No!," Vice President for Media Relations for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Ana Martinez, wrote on their official Facebook page Monday. Adds Martinez, "It's just not on the radar for us right now."Sorry Snooki, sorry Kate Gosselin, sorry Kardashians — no star on Hollywood Blvd anytime soon. Martinez tells CNN that nominees need to meet the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce committee's criteria: awards and honors 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. According to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, who handles the Walk of Fame, famous faces who WILL be getting a star sometime through June 2012 are Jennifer Aniston, Vin Diesel, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, Adam West, and Matt Groening. E.M. Stuart, credited with creating the Walk of Fame, was quoted as saying it is a means to "maintain the glory of a community whose name means glamour and excitement in the four corners of the world. The Walk is a tribute to all of those who worked so hard to develop the concept and to maintain this world-class tourist attraction," the Chamber states on their website. So what do you think? Should the Walk of Fame include reality stars? Leave a comment below and let us know.
