Walk of Fame

WILL A KARDASHIAN OR JENNER APPEAR ON HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME?

It’s a race to the BOTTOM for the Kardashians and Jenners – the bottom of Hollywood Blvd. that is! Family members Kris, Caitlin, Kim and Khloe are obsessed to see who can be the first the get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. While Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie and Rob couldn’t care less about the honor, the other four are scheming to be the first to land a star. When they first starting making lots of money, they even made a bet that whoever got their star first, would collect $1 million from the other three. Although Caitlin has been pretty much ostracized from the rest of the group, the bet still stands. Here’s the interesting part: Caitlin was Bruce when the bet first started, and technically could wind up with a star under either name.

MATTHEW PERRY HAD MORE FRIENDS THAN HE REALIZED

Hollywood is working overtime trying to figure out the best way to honor the late Matthew Perry. My source reveals the current plan is to petition to get Matthew a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – two of his Friends costars, (Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston ) have already been honored. In addition, there’s talk of bestowing upon him a posthumous honorary Emmy – he was nominated 4 times but never won. Finally, HBO and their streaming service MAX are hoping to get his remaining Friends costars to film an hour long special. My source says that one is the most complicated, because his former cast mates DO want to honor his legacy, but it’s just too soon for them to decide exactly HOW.

WHY DIANE KEATON CHOSE BARE FEET FOR WALK OF FAME

Diane Keaton was giddy with excitement today because she put her handprints and footprints in cement in front of the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd. She took a close look at the wet cement and decided no way was she going to dip her $1300 Maxfield black boots into THAT! So she sat down and removed her expensive boots and polka dot socks and used her BARE FEET for the footprints. Come to think of it, she might be the ONLY pair of bare feet on the Walk of Fame. Her adopted kids, Dexter, 27, and Duke, 22, were at the ceremony to cheer her on.

KRISTEN BELL CANNOT ESCAPE HER CONVICTIONS

Frozen 2 star Kristen Bell had a once-in-a-lifetime honor today – she got her star on the Walk of Fame at a ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard. Too bad politics reared its ugly head. Kristen and her husband Dax Shepard are very vocal about being pro-vaccination. They carefully researched the subject, take it very seriously for their children, and urge other parents to do the same. Why anti-vax demonstrators chose THIS particular occasion to carry signs and shout their feelings against Kristen is odd, and we’re betting they didn’t change any minds…

HAPPY ENDING FOR WENDY WILLIAMS?

It was quite a surprise to see that Wendy Williams got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. SO many distressing things happened to the talk show host this year – the dramatic split from her cheating husband, health issues galore, rehab etc, but Wendy managed to keep her show together. What we love is the fact that Wendy, who started a a radio DJ, is truly grateful and thrilled by this honor for her accomplishments – she calls it “Everything!”

THANK YOU TO WHOEVER STOLE THAT MARILYN MONROE STATUE!

Since it appeared in 1994, we have been appalled by this monstrosity that apparently passes for “public art.” The gaudy metallic gazebo is located at the important intersection of Hollywood Blvd and La Brea, intended as some kind of “gateway” to Hollywood. We always assumed there was some sort of political corruption between whoever paid for it and the artist. The embarrassing “art” depicts five statues of actresses in a highly sexualized and disrespectful manner. Whoever vandalized this nightmare should be rewarded, and hopefully the Hollywood chamber of commerce will re-think this situation and install a more appropriate piece of art.

ANN-MARGRET AND PAUL REISER HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON

How often do you get to see Elvis’s ex-girlfriend Ann-Margaret and Mad About You star Paul Reiser (with another guy we don’t know) walking arm and arm down Hollywood Boulevard? Unusual pairings like this often happen when there is a Walk of Fame ceremony for someone who has been around for awhile. Alan Arkin was honored this week and his ceremony had an admirable turnout of celebrities from many decades.

SAM ELLIOTT’S A STAR IS BORN COSTARS BRAVE THE RAIN FOR HIM

Love this photo of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga embracing Sam Elliott at Sam’s hand and footprint ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame IN THE RAIN. Turns out Sam is quite a popular guy – he and his wife Katharine Ross attended the Golden Globes last night, but the table of A Star is Born participants were disappointed- lots of nominations, but only one win for Best Song. Nevertheless, Bradley and Gaga braved the elements today, as did a number of celebs, to praise Sam and give him a hug on Hollywood Blvd.

SARAH SILVERMAN AND JIMMY KIMMEL STILL ONE-UP EACH OTHER

Now here’s a pair of exes that REALLY like each other. Sarah Silverman got her star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood and guess who was master of Ceremonies? Her now- married ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel, that’s who. Jimmy and Sarah were famously together for seven funny years and finally broke up in 2009. Sarah jokes “I slept with him when he was chubby!”

ERIK MCCORMACK KNOWS WHO TO THANK

Sometimes you’re really HAPPY to see someone get a star on the Walk of Fame and that is the case with Will & Grace star Eric McCormack. He seems to be a truly nice guy and we’ve never heard a negative word about him. And his series has always been so relatable and a favorite of ours. The brains behind this always timely series, Max Mutchnick, was also at the ceremony today. Eric announced that he will be grateful to the LGBTQ community ”for the rest of my life” for accepting him in the role. Michael Douglas, who played a gay detective (Will’s love interest) on the show said “Dating Will is the gayest thing I have ever done – and I played Liberace!”
