So wait, why is Kim Kardashian so popular?

October

Despite what Kanye West might want, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has flat-out refused to give his baby mama Kim Kardashian a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Something about not being eligible because she's only a reality star and hasn't contributed to society in any way, shape or form. We don't recall. What, do we look like stenographers to you?

"We don't have reality stars on the Walk of Fame," Walk spokesperson Ana Martinez told Yahoo!. "We don't have a category for it. We're happy to consider reality stars once they get nominated for, or win, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar. We'll consider them when they're legitimate actors or singers."

Oooh, that last part has to sting, mostly because all the manufactured drama on that terrible Keeping Up With the Kardashians is some A-grade B.S. cooked up by Ryan Seacrest's writing staff. Speaking of which, Seacrest has a star, but he's a producer and radio host, and has won an Emmy. Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, the crew of Apollo 11 and Lassie all have stars, too. But not Kim, and there's an even better reason besides being a reality (and sex tape) star.

"I hate to say it, but a lot of people just don't like like her," Martinez tells Yahoo!. "No one has ever nominated her." Well jeez, Kanye, let's start tending to our own yard before blaming anyone for not recognizing Kim's wonderful talent doing ... uh ... something.
