    Ryan Seacrest Gets Star on Walk of Fame

    Why?

    LOS ANGELES - The host of "American Idol" has become an idol himself.


    Ryan Seacrest was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday in a ceremony attended by his Fox TV colleagues, "Idol" judges Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell.


    "Listen, Simon," Jackson said to Cowell during their ceremonial speech. "What would we say about this day?"


    "Ill-deserved," the famously grumpy Cowell replied, dryly. "I cannot believe that April the 20th is going to be Ryan Seacrest Day. I am officially taking this day off my diary."


    Seacrest, 30, a 15-year radio veteran, confessed, "I remember getting up this morning at 3:30 a.m. on my way in to do the morning show, and I thought, `One person is going to come today.' ... I thought this would be the most unpopular star dedication ever."


    After the ceremony Seacrest told AP Television News, "I actually thought it was a joke when I heard that they were going to do this."

    Why?
    Anyone in the entertainment industry who comes up with the required cash can purchase a star on the Walk of Fame. They pretend it's an honor, but it's really about the cash. It's kind of like paying the photographer to have your senior picture displayed in his office.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Has it always been like that, or was there ever some merit to it?
