Pauly D

FURIOUS Over Hollywood

Walk of Fame Ban

Pauly D
has feelings too ... and dude tells us he was DEVASTATED when he learned that honchos at the Hollywood Walk of Fame have banned reality stars from receiving the honor.

The "Jersey Shore" star is in L.A. for the MTV VMAs -- but told us he's still thinking about his family on the East Coast ... who've had to board up their homes and evacuate because of Hurricane Irene.

Still, Pauly insists his hair is "Irene-proof!"

bravo pauly! bravo for speaking out for the industry in general! you bring in the profits for the networks and they slam you in the recognition! its high time you all were rewarded for your dramaturgical approach to show your global fans the real deal in american culture. i feel you should all get recognition and having a star on the walk of fame would do just that! the level of professionalism you bring to the camera is unmatched. the networks know the format works but fail to give you the rewards of your endeavors. this canadian stands on guard for all reality tv superstars and their attempts at formal recognition from hollywood. shame on hollywood for not adapting quickly enough to give these shining stars the justification to succeed and live the american dream. shame on hollywood for ignoring this industry as a means to promote the american way of life! god bless all of america's reality tv stars! this canadian stands on guard for the recognition you deserve!

It was a good choice, the Walk of Fame is for "real stars", those that have put in the time and effort to learn their craft and are true entertainers. Not a bunch of dummies who go on TV and exploit there silly world and look like fools.For all your ratings don't you realize people laugh at you and your a joke!

these morons are jokes.......they are unworthy of our time, yet they seem to have it....and unfortunate state of affairs in our country when morons have our attention.......clearly he isn't aware of the purpose of the walk of fame......he isn't famous....he is a joke and that was why he was chosen.....he wasn't chosen for his talent......none of them were......getting drunk isn't a skill........

NO. But if ever a "Reality Star" was a even consideration, it would have to be Pedro Zamora. Fans of MTV's original, raw, and what used to be an enlightening reality show "The Real World" will know exactly who I'm talking about, although its been about 2 decades since his appearance.

They need to have a special walk place for reality stars like Pauly D (D is for douche). They can call it "the Walk of Lame".

OH NO, watch out people, Pauly D is furious! I am sure the true celebs in Hollywood are trembling now. Please dude, get over yourself. You are not a celeb and you only wish you had 1/4 of 1/4 the talent as some of those celebs on the walk of fame.

He could always get a star by getting a REAL job in Hollywood. But that's never going to happen.

People argue that reality tv stars should have their own star because "reality tv is a new branch of entertainment now" and all that. Their was argument from people like Kris Jenner (Kardashian mom) that reality tv has taken over the media and that they're entitled to the same things other celebrities do because they're on tv getting paid like other celebrities do movies and get paid.

But the bottom line is, being a reality tv star requires NO TALENT. You don't have to DO anything, a camera just follows you around while you live your life. How is that deserving of a star on the walk of fame?? Great musicians have to work at music, great actors work at acting, reality tv "stars"....do absolutely nothing while they get filmed and people think THEY deserve a freaking star on the walk of fame?
