Kim Kardashian wants an Everlasting Gobstopper a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and she wants it now. And really, isn't it about time she gets one?
In a recent interview with V Magazine, she talked about why she wants one of the stars. She said that there's a quote somewhere that says reality stars will never get a coveted star, and since she's competitive, she'd like to be the first. "I would love to break that mold," she said.
Her comments comparing reality TV to rap music aside, she went on to make a pretty good case for the relevance of reality TV.
I think it’s fascinating, because [reality TV] is still entertainment, you know? It’s fun to see the progression of that idea. I don’t take offense to it at all. I’m not naïve to the fact that I’m not a singer or an actress or anything like that. I’ve never claimed to be anything that I’m not. I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing.
No it's not traditional acting, but let's face it, there's plenty of acting when it comes to reality television, and it's one of the most popular genres of entertainment there is today. So why shouldn't it be acknowledged in Hollywood?
It's not like everyone who has a star is all that either. I mean, Tinker Bell, Judge Judy, and Rosanne Barr all have stars there for stars' sake. I'd say Kim is at least as deserving as any of them.
You don't have to like her, but it's hard to deny that KK has made a name for herself -- a huge name -- and her impact on the entertainment industry is undeniable. So why deny her and other reality stars this honor? It's time to change with the times, and a star for Kim could pave the way.
