Many disparate celebrities have stars on Hollywood Boulevard — from Heidi Klum to Dwight Yoakam to Andrew Lloyd Webber — but one of the folks in our headline doesn’t have a chance of getting one, at least right now.
The person not currently eligible to get a star on what is known as the Hollywood Walk of Fame is Snooki from MTV’s "Jersey Shore."
According to The Hollywood Reporter: "’Someone asked if we give reality show characters stars? Hell to the No!’ was posted on the Walk of Fame’s Facebook page on Wednesday. Adds Ana Martinez, vice president for media relations and producer for the Hollywood Walk of Fame: ‘It’s just not on the radar for us right now.’"
Klum has a star, but it’s under Victoria’s Secret and she was honored as a model for the company. Charlie Sheen received a star — in the motion pictures category — way back in 1994.
The article also quotes Martinez as saying, "We just want to bring the tourists to Hollywood."
If that’s the goal, one would think Snooki and other reality stars would fit the bill.
