These are nervous times for Carole Lombard fans. That's because her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on Hollywood Boulevard...
...has as its immediate eastward neighbor this star:
And in case you haven't heard, actor-comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in a Pennsylvania prison for "aggravated indecent assault," after other women had unsuccessfully sought to convict him on similar charges over the years.
Earlier this month, Cosby's star -- which he received in November 1977 -- was defaced with "serial rapist." On the other side of the Boulevard, a star for Donald Trump as a reality TV star ("The Apprentice") has been a similar target...including this imaginative protest where a "border wall" was constructed around it:
But it appears neither Cosby nor Trump will have their stars removed, according to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Fame (https://popculture.com/celebrity/2018/09/25/bill-cosby-hollywood-walk-of-fame-star-remain-despite-sexual-assault-conviction/).
And as we've noted before, for all of the dreadful accusations (and now, conviction) made against Cosby, at least one Walk of Fame honoree was jailed for a far more violent offense. Western-swing star Spade Cooley, a popular Los Angeles television personality in the medium's early days, was convicted for the murder of his second wife (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/923734.html), and his star's still there.
The star next door to Lombard's on the other side probably won't be attacked anytime soon, since its often-outrageous honoree hasn't done anything to warrant it.
