Kim Kardashian started controversy when she was refused a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame because her claim to fame is reality TV, and now Wendy Williams is siding with Kim, adding that she believes Real Housewives NeNe Leakes and Teresa Giudice are also worthy of stars. “A spokesperson for the organization says that Kim does not qualify because she’s a reality star, and she hasn’t been nominated for a Grammy, an Emmy, or an Oscar,” Wendy explained.
“Reality stars are bigger than regular TV stars these days,” Wendy says. “Like it or not, these reality stars are stars.” Pointing out that someone like Melissa McCarthy is not known internationally, whereas Kim Kardashian is.
“And by the way, I would say that NeNe would be next on the Walk of Fame for a star, right?” Wendy says. “And I would give a star to Teresa in Jersey, you know, as long as she stays out of jail and commits to doing another season so we could watch her.”
I think this is an interesting debate. Hollywood fame and television have both changed drastically with the introduction of reality TV. Do YOU think reality stars should be granted stars on the famous Hollywood Walk Of Fame?
