But even if reality stars did qualify for the walk of fame, what would Kim be getting a star for? Making sex tapes popular? I think she is famous for being pretty and thats it. What talent does she have? I saw her in a movie once and the acting wasn’t bad but I did not think it was an A plus. Just my thoughts.

Though Kim Kardashian stars on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ a rep for the Walk of Fame said reality stars aren’t recognized for the honor.
Kanye West’s recent claim that girlfriend Kim Kardashian deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was less that stellar in the eyes of the tourist-magnet’s managers.
“We don’t have a category for reality stars on the Walk of Fame,” the landmark’s spokeswoman Ana Martinez told the Daily News.

A number of Hollywood stars have been recognized by the Walk of Fame committee, however Kim Kardashian isn’t even on their radar.
“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.”
West appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last week and griped that his baby mama hasn’t been offered a star on the Walk of Fame despite her worldwide fame and long-running show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Kanye West complained about Kim Kardashian not having a star on the Walk of Fame during his appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last week.
“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.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently became parents to daughter North.
“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.
Kardashian, 32, accompanied West, 36, to his Kimmel appearance but remained backstage with their infant daughter North.
“This Jimmy Kimmel interview is the truth,” she tweeted that night.
