Vanna White gets a great big star

vanna-white-star.jpgVanna White was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. She says:

“I remember my parents telling me, at the age of 10, ‘You can do anything you want.’ Dad, we did it!”

I didn’t know it was very many 10-year-old girls’ dreams to grow up and flip over letters for a living. Although now that I think about it, who wants to be an astronaut or the President when you can just walk around and turn things over. I used to be a successful investment banker and now all I do is sit at home and flip pancakes. Best decision I ever made.

    This story proves one thing beyond reasonable doubt: Vanna White is still alive.

  2. SuperSpence

    First. And second.

  3. CheekyChops

    Ryan Seacrest even has one. Enuff said.

  4. Vampyreska

    All you have to do to qualify for a star is admit that you are a has-been.

    Those things are stupid. If you can get one for turning letters and enduring Pat Sajak’s stupid hair for roughly 20 years, what legitimate person wants one? I don’t know about other 10-year old girls, but when I was 10, I played a lot of that game M.A.S.H. and I didn’t need dreams because M.A.S.H. told me that I would live in a mansion, marry a doctor named steve, have 3 kids, and drive a Ferrari.

    I d_n’t kn_w. W_o DO_S gi_e a f***?

  8. naughtylittleminx

    she hasn’t even actually flipped the letters in years. Now she just touches them.

    I don’t even think it’s actually a touch sensor that turns them on and off. I think there is some guy in the back at WOF who turns them on and off in sychronization with her touching them.

    When she was young and that photo shoot came out, good heavens.

    But you “did it” as in what. Yeah, we know Vanna had sex with all the right people on the way up the Hollywood letter turning ladder.

    So what.

    (Ready for the avalanche)

    I made out with Vanna White in 2002, in Miami Beach. I was 18.

  11. x3lise

    I thought you had to pay for those things to be put in…

  12. Dr.Rokter

    I’m pissed Darth Vader still doesn’t have a star.

  13. Fisher55

    I grabbed Vanna’s ankle once. I also touched Debbie Gibson’s pink Reebok and Cher patted me on the head once…

  14. Binky

    I think # 6 is right. There’s a 12 year old Asian kid back there now doing the actual flipping.
    I think Vanna must have made a pact with someone red and ‘horny’. She still looks great, and with the touch system – she doesn’t need to worry about her nails.

  15. PapaHotNuts

    Who gives a f ck?

    Vanna, I’d like to buy a “u”.

    Now, who gives a fuck?

  16. Binky

    oopps try #8 . Dropped my calculator.

    Personally, watching that boozehound Pat Sajak right now is hilarious. He CLEARLY does not give a rat’s ass about the contestants and hates every single one of them. Except the ones with big boobies. Please give it a try and watch a few epsiodes. The contestants are such hyperactive retards that anyone not from Florida would hate them, so can you blame him for borderline making fun of them to their faces? They don’t even know it either because they’re so HAPPY that they won a thousand WHOLE dollars and are on the TV!!

    And it pisses me off that you can’t buy a porcelain dalmation statue for $2000 anymore on that show. They actually give these morons REAL prizes.

  18. MystressJade

    #17 I’m from/live in Florida and I hate them all.

  19. Land-Man

    I always dreamed that she would flip over a letter and instead of a letter it would be my balls. Then, last year, I got my wish.

  20. PapaHotNuts

    #19- that’s good. Actually laughed out loud on that one.

  21. LoneWolf

    Literally all it takes to get a star is a good publicist. And you do have to pay for it yourself.

    Vanna did Playboy years ago and she also made an awful TV movie – she was a statue that came to life (Christ, how the hell do I remember that?), and the obvious joke was that no one watching the movie (and there were tens) could tell the difference. Those career choices effectively ended any chance that she ever might have had of getting unshackeled from that game show. She has risen to the level of her abilities.

  22. Aimtrue

    I almost touched Vanna’s shoulder once. Her body gaurd gave me a shot to the chest. I got aroused. I am ashamed

  23. Star Maker Machinery

    She’s no worse than other talentless, pretty faces. Read: Teri Hatcher, Kelly Ripa, …. um, Star Jones, etc.

  24. careyanne

    Hey, I’m from florida and I hate that show! My grandparents don’t even watch it anymore!

    But yes, most of the time we are idiots!

    Can I also admit that when I was a little girl of 10 and played M.A.S.H., I always ended up marring the janitor, living in a shack, with 20 kids, and on welfare…

  25. If her definition of success includes that cheating ex-husband of hers, on top of flipping those letters, then I’m happy to be a failure.

  26. the sad thing is, the event organizer thought it would be funny to make vanna turn over the star herself…the poor girl broke four nails…then when the star got away from her, it slammed down to the sidewalk and amputated two of her toes and ruined a pair of monolo blonics…all in all, she was still thrilled…look, she’s even smiling and waiving…what a trooper..

  27. does anyone remember the auto-biography she wrote a few years back? she picked all the letters in the book herself…

  28. ThatsHot

    That lady makes me wanna barf. She’s like a Stepford wife! She’s constantly smiling and hardly ever speaks, and when she does, it’s something saccrine-y and agreeable. She’s always dressed up with a full face of make-up. Granted she looks like Skelletor, but they still make her wear it. I mean, would the earth fall off it’s axis if she got to wear some jeans? And what’s worse, she has to play second banana to Pat Sajak. PAT SAJAK, people! The poster child for a Napoleon complex. I’m surprised she hasn’t killed herself yet. But she does have one thing to live for: her Guiness Book of World Records entry for most claps in a lifetime. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!

    Queen Latifah gets a star and now Vanna White? Are they giving the damn things away? Who’s next? Tony Danza?

  30. Vanna White qualifies for a star on the walk of fame? Who is she next to? Humphrey Bogart? William Holden? It makes me wonder… when are they ever going to give Madge the Palmolive bitch her rightful star?

  31. PapaHotNuts

    I saw MeganHarris on the Wheel one night, and the category was “Places”.

    The board looked like this:

    P N N S Y L V A N I A

    After several uncomfortable seconds , she guessed the color “Yello” and Pat kicked her in the pussy.

  32. I didn’t realize she was strong enough to pry her crypt open and crawl out.

  33. BigJim

    MeganHarris doesn’t have a pussy. She has a… well we’re really not sure. Something with teeth?

    C U Next Tuesday.

  34. Easily, the most useless celebrity. At least she keeps her plastic surgeon in business.

  35. gogoboots

    She gets a Hollywood star for turning letters?!?!!?! Life is so unfair, sob!

  36. Iambananas

    I don’t enjoy Vanna White… did you ever notice how she just stares at the camera when she’s walking on Wheel Of Fortune? It’s annoying… I think she’s narcissistic (sp?)… and that’s kind of ironic because she’s really old and way past her prime (that, incidentally lasted 5 seconds)… she’s useless.

  37. Iambananas

    #23… pretty faces? Who in that list has a pretty face? It’s more like wrinkeled faces.

  38. BichanoBonito

    Vanna hit the wall years ago.

  39. Is it just me or is gossip really scraping the bottom of the barrell today?

  40. honeycomb's_big_yeahyeahyeah

    The funny thing — funny stupid, not funny ha ha, sorry — is that Celebrites purchase Hollywood WOF Stars. They cost $10,000. What an honour!

    Now let me talk about how smexy I find female game show sidekicks. I know in recent years Pat has unfortunately started indulging Vanna in some pre-credits banter; but I remember the days when she was erotically silent. Just like the girls on the Price is Right. Their pornish glaze and silent enthusiasm to the gleaming array of merchandise on parade made me weak. It still does, it still does.

  41. honeycomb's_big_yeahyeahyeah

    #10…did she say anything while it was happening? Feed me fodder, please.

  42. tinheart

    All you need to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is to raise X amount of dollars…and show up to the dedication ceremony.

    Which is why Vanna has a star and the Beatles don’t. Although, they’ll probably get their star when Paul McCartney dies, cause Ringo will show up to the opening of a pizza.

  43. mamadough

    well dammit, if she get’s a star, they better give some to Bob Barker’s bitches. They’ve been around for like 50 years or something, had to bang Bob, and can still convince you that a can opener for $3.99 is still a kick ass prize.

  44. I heard Frank Sinatra’s star slapped Vanna’s star in the face and called her whore.

    Yes, Frank Sinatra’s star was drunk again.

  45. Jacq

    #41 – HELP! HELP! HELP! SOMEONE! NO MEANS NO!

    hahaha, lol BTW – No means yes and yes means harder…

  46. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    40 – Erotically silent, like Katie Holmes in labor. Makes you want to poke that baby right back up the shoot, don’t it? Or maybe that’s just me.

  47. honeycomb's_big_yeahyeahyeah

    Ick, Osh. That’s just you. ICK I say!! (*locks self in bathroom for 47 minutes*)

    That was my shitty attempt at sarcasm. Star Jones has a head like the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown.

  49. Trotter

    I see Vanna’s star is after Wilie Ames and right before Ron Jeremy’s. Bible Man’s got her back while kneels before the cock. Sorry.

  50. bunnyhugger

    ok, i’m gonna get grief for this, but i used to be on “the board” of a very popular singer’s 200+ fan club base (did that make sense?)
    anyway one of the newbies decided a star was in order. they got the petition signed and raised the $500 (not 10,000.00). i am proud to say that our singer turned down the “honor” since it wasn’t really an honor.
    then he went and gave a whole bunch of money to hilary clinton.
    granted, jumping up and down on hilary would be more fun than jumping up and down on the sidewalk, but, i digress.

    i’m just surprised vanna had enough fans to sign the petition.

    and i agree, dr. rokter, darthie-poo needs a star.

    i say we pitch in and get papa a star!!!
    yeah, i’m done now.
