Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
I've been a fan of Ms. Jackson's since the original run of "The Rookies". However, I confess that the two characters that affected me the most were Sabrina Duncan of "Charlie's Angels" and Amanda King of "Scarecrow and Mrs. King".
In the mid-70's women were expected to be teachers, secretaries, nurses or housewives. Don't get me wrong. There's absolutely nothing wrong with any of those professions. (I'm a secretary.) "Charlie's Angels" showed that women had other choices as well. We could be doctors, fighter pilots, football players, or do pretty much anything a man could do. Sabrina Duncan showed that women could be beautiful AND smart. She was a role model for me and hundreds of teen-agers.
Amanda King showed that it was okay to be a mom as well as have a job that you enjoyed and was challenging. She had pride in a job well done, a love of her family and a love of her country -- things that were and still are rarely shown on television.
Kate herself is a role model to many people for different reasons: she's a breast cancer survivor. She's not afraid to speak her mind or take a stand. She takes pride in her craft and does the best job possible in whatever television show or movie she's in.
Imagine my surprise to discover that after being an inspiration to people over all these years that she doesn’t have a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Deciding to rectify this obvious oversight I called the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce some time in August 2001 to get information about just how one goes about "getting a star". (I also wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to bite off more than I could chew.) They were kind enough to send me a Brochure with the requirements…one of which is $25,000.
My next step was to contact Ms. Jackson’s publicist to ask if there would be any objections to attempting this venture. I also wanted to make sure that she'd be interested in this undertaking and also that no one else was working on this. After all, why reinvent the wheel? Her publicist, who, btw, is a VERY nice man, got back to me, said that Ms. Jackson would definitely be interested and that I could proceed with her approval.
