Question For Victor:

How is it that Ryan Seacrest got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Joe Don Baker hasn't yet?

I think it only costs something like $5000 to get one. May have gone up since I heard this almost 15 years ago. Not sure who you contact, but it is a relatively easy thing to do.

It is truly an injustice, is all I can say.

I thought you had to earn such awards after decades of work in a given field. Silly me.

If Britney and Seacrest can get one, why not me?

Looking at the s's, i wonder if the fact that Brittany Spears and David Spade got a star, de-values the three stars that Sinatra got. Or does it work the other way around. Does John Phillip Souza's star add luster to Patrick Swayze's lackluster career?

According to


Robert Redford, Mel Gibson, Jane Fonda, and Clint Eastwood still have not received Stars. (Jane Fonda deserves a trial for treason, not a Star.)

Mel Gibson probably will never get one since he's a fundamentalist Christian, and we all know how Hollywood feels about THEM.
