People dont just get a star for being in movies
The Donald trumped Rosie O’Donnell on Tuesday.
The unveiling of the 2,327th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honored Donald Trump, the producer of NBC’s “The Apprentice,” billionaire developer and O’Donnell’s verbal sparring partner. O’Donnell doesn’t have a star.
Why does Trump have a star?
Mr Trump received his star in 2007 for his role in producing the Miss Universe beauty pageant for over two decades, not for his television success with the NBC show The Apprentice.
He sold the Miss Universe Organization - including Miss USA and Miss Teen USA - in 2015.
And Mr Trump is not the only president with a star: Ronald Reagan was inducted in 1960 for his acting career.
Recently, fans of fellow reality television star Kim Kardashian have called for a spot on the Walk, but it seems she does not quite make the cut.
A representative for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce told the Hollywood Reporter that since Kardashian has not received any awards and has only acted in guest roles, she is ineligible.
“Can’t really say if reality stars will ever be eligible,” the representative added. “Not on our radar right now.”
Other famous celebrities featured on the Walk of Fame include:
- Boxing legend Muhammad Ali, whose star is the only one you cannot step on as it is in the wall of the Dolby Theatre, per Ali’s request
- Disney’s Mickey Mouse, the first animated character to receive a star, and more recently, Minnie Mouse
- Actress Marilyn Monroe, one of the most popular stars on the Walk
