Kim Kardashian on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Apparently, Kim Kardashian was doing an interview with V Magazine when she mentioned that she really wants to earn herself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She said that she wants to be the first reality star on the Walk of Fame, “I would love to break that mold” the 31-year-old said.

But, is there any way she will actually get a star? The Hollywood Reporter asked a chamber of commerce rep and the rep basically said, “Hellllllll no!”

 

“Part of criteria in being honored is receiving awards such as Emmys, SAG Awards, Oscars, etc. in the category of television, live-stage performance or motion pictures. They have to have a career in the business of acting for five years or more.” the rep said.

Aw, dangit! It looks like Kim Kardashian will have suddenly have to develop some sort of talent! However, talent and the Kardashians don’t really go together. The only talent the Kardashians possess is the talent of becoming famous without having any talent — which is honestly really a talent! I’ve actually defended that Kardashians in the past for this specific reason. They might be horrible people and they might not have any “real” talent, but they’ve built this incredibly empire.

They’re all over your television set, your magazines and one of them is all over your husband’s computer. It might not take a lot of talent to get famous in the world we live in nowadays, but it does take a little bit of talent and a lot of hard work to maintain it. Now, does that mean I think Kim Kardashian deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? F**k no! But, just let the poor girl have her dreams…it’s all she has. Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian1
