It may not be as high an honor as the “hottest woman of all time” nod she received from Men’s Health last year, but Jennifer Aniston will be granted her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week. The former Friends star, whose new film Wanderlust opens next weekend, will receive her star on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce maintains the Walk of Fame, and the price of sponsoring a new star is $30,000.
For her role on Friends as Rachel Green, Aniston received five Emmy nominations, two SAG Awards, and two Golden Globe nominations. She has since starred in numerous films, including Rumor Has It, The Good Girl, and The Break Up. Fun fact: Aniston’s godfather, actor Telly Savalas, received his Walk of Fame star in 1983.

News broke today that Iowa resident Teresa Hunt was arrested for attempting to extort $10,000 from TLC and/or force the network to shut down its show 19 Kids and Counting, starring Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their massive family.

James is a long time family friend who has always been supportive of my music career. He’s a good Christian and it’s upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this.”

Alec Baldwin’s antics aboard an American Airlines flight have gotten him grounded as a spokesman for a New York-based supermarket chain.
