For the last and final time, a rep for the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” has released a statement saying 32-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian does NOT qualify for a star on the prestige Hollywood landmark.
36-year-old Kanye West recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to petition that the mother of his daughter and girlfriend in deed deserves a star on the Walk of Fame and will see to it that she gets one. Too bad, the rep, Ana Martinez, thinks otherwise.
Here’s what she told the Daily News:
“We don’t have a category for reality stars on the Walk of Fame,” the landmark’s spokeswoman Ana Martinez told the Daily News.
“They’re not giving a performance, it’s just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV,” she said. “We honor people who’ve acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And it’s the same with music, people who maybe have gold records.”
“People are so, so dated and not modern. It’s like, there’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame. It’s ridiculous, old concepts,” he said.
“I understand that Kanye loves his girlfriend, but that’s not the way to go about getting a star – on national TV without checking into whether or not she qualifies, which she does not,” Martinez said.
The committee would be happy to consider reality stars if and when they get nominated or win an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy or other major award given for a performance,” she said.
