Eat your heart out Kim Kardashian. Find yourself a new perfume to promote, Paris Hilton.
You might be a star, but you will never be a ‘star’ - and that edict comes from way on high. The official body that oversees the Hollywood Walk of Fame has banned reality stars from ever taking a precious star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame.

So they may as well start shooting for the moon..
