Despite the fact that all you really need to get on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is money and a good publicist (The fucking Rugrats have their own star, I swear to God), someone in the committee has decided to pull rank and declare on their Facebook page that anyone who was on a reality TV show won’t be getting a star anytime soon and you know what? I can get behind that. Fuck those whores.
In a recent posting on the Walk of Fame’s Facebook page, Ana Martinez, Vice President for Media Relations and Producer for the Hollywood Walk of Fame wrote, “Someone asked if we give reality show characters stars? Hell to the No!”
Later, she told CNN that the Walk of Fame’s criteria included: “longevity in their field of entertainment, awards and other honors, and philanthropic work.”
All right kids, listen up because I’m only going to say this once: being on a reality TV show is not a viable career option. You cannot put “Famous” down on your taxes as your occupation. Why? Because doing nothing while people film it is not fucking work. Say what you will about actual actors and singers, but at least they actually do some work, like memorizing lines and lyrics, perfecting their talent, shit like that. Yelling at equally awful people on camera? No, not a real job. Do something else.
