It's no surprise that fans have been wondering why Houston doesn't have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and they've been speaking out. Fans have been flooding the The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce with questions and finally got a response. Apparently the singer was selected back in 1995 but her reps never selected a date for the star-unveiling ceremony. The selection invite expired in 2000, but they stated they would " be happy to consider re-instating the status of the star if it is desired by the family."
