If we thought reality stars were overtaking Hollywood, think again!
“Jersey Shore” cast member DJ Pauly D is outraged over being banned from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Last week the people behind the landmark posted on their Facebook pages that they refuse to give reality stars a star on Hollywood Boulevard.
Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with Pauly D while he was in Los Angeles and asked him about the ban from the famous landmark and he says he’s not happy that he and his other “Jersey Shore” buddies are ineligible.
He tells TMZ that he's, “really upset. That’s something I always wanted. I’m really upset about that. They gotta change that.”
Do you agree with Pauly D that reality stars should be eligible to get a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Or do you think the Walk of Fame should be reserved for real Hollywood stars? Post below! Plus, tonight another “Jersey Shore” great debate: Did the fight between Ronnie and “The Situation” live up to the hype?
Join us tonight at 11pm ET/PT on HLN!
He wants a star!? okay, he can if he does something. Why should he get a star for partying, drinking, sleeping around, GTLn', anybody can do that, they just have cameras with them. Some reality tv stars can have stars only if they earn them by actually becoming star worthy, but Jersey Shore cast, not even close.
i mean jersey shore cool and all and i watch it but no i dont think that they should get a HOLLYWOOD star. come on anyone can be a reality star now days. anyone can party and "do it" everyday. we all do that now. should we get a star? it should go to people who really worked for it
Hey Pauly!! Try Earning it!
I agree....the star's on the walk of fame are HUGE names, that have won Oscar's, Tony's and starred in historic films. What gives Pauly D to feel that he derves to be in that company. It's reserved for TRUE HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY!!!
Do something big & meaningful, Pauly D, perhaps then you'll be worthy!
What a bone head! No Pauly and the rest of these so called wannabe actors do not deserve to get a star. They are not real celebrities! "The walk of Fame" belongs to the real stars.
I hope that does not include Snooky who has become a designer, drug abuser and everything the Hiltons and Kardashians are. Or more accurately AREN'T.
Id give him a star if this were 1942 Germany
Hell No to pauly! Meatheads don't get stars for gyming,tanning,laundry,and clubbin'.And WHY the Hell does SEACREST have a star,he has done nothing but host American Idol.I coulda done that s*** ! His and paulys egos are beyond
Ryan Seacrest has a star on the Walk of Fame? Why?
Pauly can just graphitti his name In the alleyway just behind Hollywood Blvd.
Ok – they want stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. MOST people DON'T want them to have stars there. Here's a compromise. Section off a piece of the walkway and instead of regular stars, give them stars with pictures of cameras in them. They are like Paris Hilton and other "celebutants" who are only famous basically for being famous. Give them the kind of stars they deserve. Stars that are basically just there on the sidewalk because they are stars.
A toilet trimmed in fake-gold with all the jersey shore N!GGERS names and faces emblazoned on the seat would be more appropriate.
The article said it quite plainly: the Walk of Fame should be reserved for real Hollywood stars.....
Popular doesn't equal Star (ie. talent).
Thank God Hollywood kept it's sanity. The only stars he'll see is when some guy punches him in the face on his show.

Do these Jersey idiots actually think that anyone Hollywood takes them seriously? They are the laughing stock of this generation.
oh gosh, my sides hurt, "i always wanted that", sorry but this river trash bum didn't even know what the walk of fame was until this came up, so i doubt he always wanted that. give me a break. go take your no hang over medicine and get checked out for the latest std at your local free clinic then get some education behind you, maybe then you can get off of the walk of shame, but you will never be welcome on the walk of fame. i think i need a barf bag.
I was VERY let down by the fight between Ronnie the cry baby & the Snitchuation.
I've been waiting for the past 3 seasons to see the Snitch get his ass beat.
Finally the time comes & MTV hypes it up like crazy only to find out that Ronnie didn't even do anything and Snitch knocked him self out like only a genious like him could do.
As far as the Hollywood Walk of Fame goes, these people are not actors, they are reality TV stars.
I love watching the JS because it is entertaining, but thhese people are not talented actors.
Imagine DiNeiro & Paccino having their star next to Snookie...totally disrespectful. LOL
@real t rex. Me to u want to "get together" ? Wink wink
U are all stupid ! He should have two stars. Yer all just jealous of that beautiful hunk of man !
Hey Pauly!!! Good Luck with that. Pretty sure you need some talent first! I'm still trying to get over "The Situation" thinks he can have a career like Leonardo DiCaprio. :-0 Unbelievable!!!!
There are no "stars" on reality shows, they are merely "participants". It's a form of entertainment (yes, there are some who find it entertaining rather than revolting) that the television producers love because it's so cheap to produce. The fact that some audience members get so caught up in the show that they consider the participants stars is proof that you can fool some of the people some of the time.......
NONE of the reality stars should be eligible. That was created for real talent, real film and TV stars. These fools on reality are just that, fools who got lucky, got there 15 mins of fame and made lots of money. FU Pauly D, you and the rest of th trash on that show can't earn your place on the walk of fame. Good decision to ban them all!
Pauly D, here's a hint: become a REAL STAR and M.A.Y.B.E someone will give you a Walk of Fame Star one day?! Pauly, you are not a star. You act like a jack@ss on some "reality" show and think that you can have and hold everything you darn well want in life. Get over yourself. If it's something you really want, change to get what you want or else you won't ever get it.
Reality Stars? What the heck is that? none of these clowns exist in reality. Just a bunch of immature, overblown ego's with zero talent and now a bunch of cry babies! WAH I WANNA STAR! Not one of them to date has made the transformation from accidental celebrity to a real talent and most likely never will.
Last I heard, only talented artists got there names on the Walk of Fame. What talent does this idiot possess, how to get drunk and womanize? Any jackhole with half a brain can do that. What a moron.
Real Actors with Real Talent that can make you believe anything, can be anyone......not some A**Clown that gets to show off some awesome pecs, which does seem to be his only real gift! As soon as he opens his mouth you wish he hadn't nor anyone else on this show. I will admit, laughable, yes, does it "sometimes" make me forget about a bad day because they are so much worse, yes, real, talented actors that have taken the time to become great, Hell no!
Why does Paulie D have hair like a woman? Plus, if you really look at the entire cast of J.S., they're quite hideous individuals. Where's the appeal? BTW- their main objective in LIFE should be to shake the ignorant Italian stereotype but they seem to have found success with it.
Those on the Walk of Fame have worked for their place there. They weren't just followed around through their regular lives by cameras, and not expected to exhibit any talent. They didn't go to work and take a nap. They didn't party their way through their project. The only award reality stars should be eligible for is Best Train Wreck.
I agree with the ban on reality stars getting a star on the walk of fame, they are not movie stars, they have no real acting skills, they are just known for making scenes, being drunk, and tanning too much. I have become addicted to the show, it's like a train wreck, I can't look away. I thought the fight was stupid, Mike is an idiot.
Reality TV is crap TV and IMO simply embarrassing morons.
The 'Walk of Fame' is for the great actors and performers of our time and to allow dick-weeds in this garden of talent would diminish the entire meaning..
Perhaps they could install there stars in front of a urinal in the mens room somewhere where we can dribble on them as we 'shake it off'. Since that is what their so called talent is all about.
OMG Rampworm, too bad there isn't a LIKE button that I could push on the comments that just "sieze" the moment and speak volumes about "The Rest of the Story"! Kudos.....
I agree with the Hollywood Walk of Fame's decision. Reality "stars" are not actors. They are not directors. They are not producers. They have no talent, and are basically a bunch of ill-behaved spoiled brats showing the worst of humanity on a weekly basis. The walk of fame is full of names of people who made a positive contribution to the lives of millions via entertainment. Reality "stars" (and I hate to even use that term) do nothing more than provide people the opportunity to witness an ongoing train wreck.
Vanna White has a star. how has she demonstrated exemplary abilities in movies, theatre, music and the creative arts. She turns letters for a living. I think fair is fair. If one non actor has a star all should be elligible. Not saying they should get one but they should not be banned.
Vanna White (born Vanna Marie Rosich; February 18, 1957) is an American television personality and film actress best known as the hostess of Wheel of Fortune since 1982. THAT'S why she has a star.
No, they don't deserve a star! They will be temporary fixtures in Hollywood, can't wait for the day nobody talks about them!
The Hollywood Walk of Fame recognizes persons for their exemplary abilities in movies, theatre, music and the creative arts. The cast of "Jersey Shore" should be recognized solely for their ability to only create human de-evolution.
The WOF shouldn't be for just actors. Acting is the easiest job in the world. It's easier than passing out free newspapers or being a doorman.
@FAKE Beautiful Vixen: ?? I just got on here. Close..good try. ??
Lol..@ NJ walk of shame comment. This guy is a grenade himself and he should be grateful he is on t.v. Sure I watch NJ shore and I get my laughs, but, there is a limit. Enough already..we don't want you on the Hall of Fame. Awww Taco Bell Chihuahua..was cute and funny.
If he wants a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, maybe he should develop some ACTUAL talent.
Absolutely NOT! What is his talent? It doesn't take a lot to walk around and have a camera follow u!!!
Pauly D is a 20someting year old brat having a tantrum. The Pillsbury Doughboy deserves a star first before any of these "reality' stars. He's just a kid & in 20 years from now will be laughing at himself....
What a d#*k.
If any of these reality A$$ CLOWNS receive a Star, then the whole thing means absolutely nothing and hollywood history will have turned to sh__t.........
Reality Stars are NOT Actors.
To get a star on the Walk of Fame, one first must be nominated to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce via application process. Per their website" "When nominating an individual or group, the sponsor must submit a photo, a bio and the nominee’s qualifications as well as a list of contributions to the community and civic-oriented participation. A letter of agreement from the nominee or his/her management must be included with the application." It also costs $30k out of one's own pocket to get the star and ceremony on the Walk if selected.
To think they would even allow any of these people on the Hollywood walk of Fame with stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Clark Gable.....they are not stars...just media attention seekers...I agree, just because you let a camera follow you around and see every stupid thing you do does not make you a STAR.
Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!?! Your kidding right....?....
Just like a dago. Brings a knife to a gun fight
Now that is good.....and too true. Did he make it through kindergarten?
Pauly D is a legend in his own mind. He hasn't done anything to deserve a star and the odds are that he ever will. Walking around with your shirt off and sounding stupid doesn't take talent.
He wants what? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Whew, I needed that Thanks!
No only True Movie Stars , Actors, actresses and theisbians should be able to get a star. getting paid 100,000 an episode to drink, fight, screw, and show the materilistic side of society its sad. instead of paying them like 600,000 for 6 episodes or 100,000 per they could put that towards helping rebuild the goverment. or find new enegry sources IJS
I act like a jerk in real life daily. I want a star on the walk of fame. Its not fair. They should change that.
He's a joke and he thinks that he and he cohorts are stars? Please. They may be poor excuses for human beings, abominable role models, people with no discernible talent (like the Kardashians), and stupid beyond belief. But Stars? I don't think so. The sooner they are off the air and forgotten, the better off we will ALL be. Hollywood Blvd. indeed!
Its Sad but you can buy your way on that . if you see the list added in the last ten years you would be shocked. The Hollywood walk of fame use to be for great actors who deserved it. Now its a money making machine. Just like the Music awards. Same people, next year. Maybe I quit music and do a reality show. yeah....Eddie love's Ade, The search for my Wife...lol
I agree with the Hollywood Walk of Fame people. Reality stars are not stars. They are just everyday people that for what ever reason got to get in front of the cameras; and then somebody called it entertainment. They aren't supposedly even supposed to be acting. They are supposed to be themselves. Why should they get rewarded for that??
ya it should be the ho`mo walk of shame. off camera they all do ghb and sneak dudes in off camera. Pauly D is just as gay as situation. he just hides it better.
they should rename the show "jersey sores" for all the herpes floating around in that house. and to danny bonaduce- hahahahaha
Make a new sidewalk in jersey and call it the jersey walk of shame. Problem solved!
Absolutely not. The walk of fame should certainly be reserved for actual movie stars. If you put a reality star on the walk of fame it makes the award that much less of an honor. It will no longer be coveted or sought after. Its like the Grammys giving a life time achievement medal to a one hit wonder group.
Although there is no formal Policy and Procedures manual for obtaining a Star in hollywood and it's obvious Hollywood never imagined anyone getting a star without two important ingredients for star consideration:: Talent + success = recognition (actually that's three things). Reality T.V. is not about talent, but they are successful. That's why they should be considered more like an financial windfall producing financial gains for little money. They are definitely more "Business" than Show Business.
So, Reality stars should not worry or care about getting a star on Hollywood, they should only care to see themselves as an investment that's paying off until the next big reality "star"
As someone pointed out there ARE several undeserving people who have stars on the Walk of Fame. However I don't think that because of these unfortunate lapses in judgment that reality stars should be allowed to have them. I don't want to walk down the Boulevard and go "Hmmm...Burt Lancaster...John Wayne...Liz Taylor...James Dean....Elvis Presley...Snookie?" But I'll lay odds that reality "game show" personalities like Simon Cowell and Nigel Lithgoe will wind up on the Boulevard.
yes you are correct there. But Simon & Nigel are more than just personalities on a reality show. Nigel is the executive producer of American Idol and Simon is the one who created the X factor.
Yeah, but Ryan Seacrest has one. so, they lost all credibility with me....No, the Jersey Shore losers shouldn't have one, but niether should that tool.
Lets see, Elizabeth Taylor or Snooki? Get serious!!!
Who in the hell is Pauly D?
Pauly D is a piece of crap just like the rest of the "Jersey Shore" cast. He says, "They gotta change that". First of all, he cannot speak English correctly. Second, "they gotta change that" just because YOU SAY SO? Why don't YOU change and become a real actor?
If you stop talking about them, maybe they will go away. Stop giving them publicity.
these are no talent people. they act like idiots way through every stupid show. why should they get a star? i shudder at the thought that people like snookie or the kardasians could ever receive one. this reality stuff is crap. can you imagine giving one to the bimbos on 'real houswives'? if i want to see a bunch of bimbos and bozos all i have to do is go the local bar. people should not be paid for this behavior.
Walk of Fame stars are for ACTORS. They recognize exceptional ability to slip into another character's skin and evoke emotions from an audience in a work of fiction. While I recognize as well as anyone else that reality shows are mostly scripted, the participants aren't taking fictional or historical characters and doing the hard work of learning to bring that illusion to life. They're just portraying outsized versions of themselves.
If Pauly D wants a star, he needs to ACT. Also, as a footnote, just about no one in history has ever gotten a star with just one show's worth of work.
Unfortunately, that's not actually true. Several sports personalities have stars, like Magic Johnson and Mohammed Ali, musicians like Michael Jackson have a star, multiple stars were given out to non acting positions like to costume designers, special effects people and make-up, and multiple cartoon characters have stars, even though they can't honestly be considered actors. So is it fair to say the Jersey folks don't get one just cuz they're not actors? No, not really. Magic Johnson and Michael Jackson weren't actors. And is it fair to say the Jersey folks don't get one because they're not talented? Well, cartoon characters have no talent and they get one. So it's hard to make a call imo.
Just to be clear, am I saying this Pauly D guy deserves a star? No. But at the same time, there's plenty of people who already have a star, who I feel didn't deserve it.
Reality celebs on T.V. are not anything when it comes to Hollywood and the Film Industry..for it takes
a real Movie Star to qualify for a "star" on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I would suggest these people like the Jersey Shore their a joke to be laughed at for they haven't a clue, just like any other reality television show..wake up man YOU ARE NOT A STAR
Actually the walk of fame is for several other people besides actors. They have directors, musicuans, sports starts, etc.
I banned him from everywhere but allow him to continue being retarded.
oh and that fight was lame... someone beat up Sammi....
I agree. She starts all of this crap and I would love to see her get something for it.
Well... let's be honest here. I think that Taco Bell Chihuahua has a star, along with lots of other non-talented "stars" so am I gonna say those talentless losers deserve it more than the Jersey Shore talentless losers? I don't think I can fairly make that call.
Listen you – don't go knocking the chihuahua.
The dog's Chalupa deserves a star before the Jersey Shore lowlifes do.
they shouldn't be able to have a star on the walk of fame if they are JUST a reality tv star. Now if they go on and make something of themselves in the entertainment business then I don't see why not. Pauly D, make it big DJ-ing and we'll get you a star ;)
The geico gecko deserves one before pauly d or any other reality star or especially a simple DJ for that matter.. My three year old scratches records too and he will not get a star for that..
I agree. Reality TV may become a stepping stone for legitimate talent to break into Hollywood, but that in and of itself is not reason enough to be awarded an honor like a step on the walk of fame.
I've never seen the show, and frankly am repulsed by much of reality TV, but I do realize the potential it carries to make individuals into psudo-stars in the eyes of the adoring public (If only to the same extent that someone with knowledge of a wed cam and any video editing free-ware can make a youtube video go viral) but this does not denote any actual effort or achievement on their part which the walk of fame is intended to recognize.
The stars are awarded to people with talent. What kind of talent is required to be yourself while a camera follows you around?
You don't think being a ginormous tool takes talent?
No talent, no star on the walk of fame! Firsty!!!
One of my hot Turds deserves a star before these jersey shore idiots.
Hey Pauly D. F U BUDDY!!
These so called stars should start their own walk...The Walk of Shame!!!!
would somebody just knock some sense into this phoney.Better yet, just knock him out
And if he visits a friend's keg parties, at a college for four years, should he get a degree?
I would pay 10 dollars to see a movie of a hot turd before Id watch any jersey shore crap
