Wendy Williams Wants Reality Stars to Be Eligibile for Hollywood Walk of Fame (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 11th 2011 2:40PM
When Wendy Williams introduced her plea for reality stars to be made eligible for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, her 'Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) audience thought she was going in a different direction. "They have just banned reality stars from being a part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame," Wendy said, which her audience greeted with a raucous round of applause.

"Excuse me ... no, no ... you guys are so wrong," Wendy laughingly protested. "The key-word here is fame, not acting ability. Snooki is more famous than Michelle Williams ... So if it's Hollywood Walk of Fame, then why shouldn't reality stars be on there?" she asked.

Wendy then launched into an even broader defense of the reality genre, urging everyone from Oprah to TI to drop the guise of calling reality shows "documentaries." "Everybody's too high-brow to say reality show ... there was a reality show on OWN," she protested, referring to 'The O'Neals,' "and Snooki is a star, dammit."

You MUST be kidding! Reality shows are just that based on supposed reality and not scripted and worked on to make a show great or maybe not so great. Do you want Snooki to have her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Not me! These shows are mainly for entertainment and shock value. Look at Kim K and her overpriced wedding that lasted 72 days! I still think she didn't want to get married but was looing at the ratings and then turning it around on Kris to take the blame. These shows are supposed to relflect real lives and how they are every day. This is not acting, not reporting information to the country that may help people, etc. This would be ridiculous and not even worth doing. This is for actors, writers, people who have professional jobs not ones who fight with each other on tv over mundane problems which most of us could care less about. Survivor and the Great Race are good programs and so is Big Brother, but none of them deserve to have a star, at least for what they do on their shows. These are game shows, they win money for who plays the best, etc. No Wendy I don't beleive this should be done. Sorry.

Reality Stars. They are not stars they are Dysfunctional people wearing their dirty laundry for the TV world to see for a buck. Snooki is nothing but a piece of White Trash. Who the Fucx is Wendy Williams to judge? Maybe she should have a reality show because she does not have an inch of talent. These people do not deserve any recognition because they are not Actors or Actresses, and I hope the acting community bans this
I can not believe that Rutgers University paid Snooki $35,000 dollars to give a speech.
Is that want their University wants their students to turn out like?
Snooki for President? You Tell Me, Is that who we want as a role model for our children.
Not in my family. And the Walk of Fame is for People who act. If reality is acting lets put my neighbors on TV because the police are at their door twice a month for some kind of dispute. Not really but you tell me. Look at all the Dysfunctional people that have had a reality show. Jersey Shore, Osborne’s, Hogan’s, Braxton, Jackson Family Values, Shall I go on? And the people that watch these shows are more FucX Up than what they watch on TV. I do not know why they are put in a class as stars because they are not stars
And none of them have one inch of acting ability, and they want them on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I’d get out on Hollywood Blvd and protest this

No matter what the name is we all know it's for talented actors and actresses not for Reality Stars like Snooki. Snooki has made a small fortune without any talent, mor power to her but keep her away from the Walk Of Fame. There are a bunch of senior citizens who still have no idea who she is.

She is a piece of white trash doing what comes natural to her for a buck. Would you want your son to bring her home to introduce her to your family? Not Me.

Thank God Wendy has no say. I don't think she understands how people are actually elected to that special honor, besides reality shows are not real; everybody knows that!

No much of what is seen is for shock value, over exageration of their real lives, etc. These people are looking for a way to make a fast buck. Not all of these shows are worthless either, but they are not deserving of an award given to actors/actresses who have to play a part not be who they are and entertain us without all the "drama" that some of these reality shows offer. Look at the Housewives shows, all they do is trash each other, there are no redeeming qualities and no lessons to be learned. So if I understant your statement you seem to think they should get a star for letting us get a taste of real life? I have that at home, I want to be entertained and maybe even learn something besides how to put each other down.

OMG, Please let Walk of Fame, keep their class and distinction. Wendy Williams is nothing more than a drag queen who wants fame and fortune. All she does is gossip about everyone she knows. Take off her wig and false lashes, caked make up and fake cantalope boobs and what have you got. She is an amazon, with a big mouth and no talent.
She may talk about Michele Williams, but she has real beauty, with her own hair and talent. She perfected her own craft as an actress. Michele belongs on Walk of Fame.
