Hallmark star Holly Robinson Peete was just awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Several major stars joined her during her celebration on June 21, 2022.
Peete Dedicated the Star to Her Mother
Peete dedicated the star to her mother, Dolores Robinson, Daily Mail reported.
“She dreamed big for herself bringing her kids west from Philly in ’74,” she said. “If it wasn’t for her boldness and courage to create a better life for us I would not be getting this star!”
Peete told Fox 11 about the honor: “Being immortalized on Hollywood Blvd is so exciting. It’s a permanent tribute to a four-decades-plus career in TV. Legacy stuff!”
During her celebration, she thanked God, her husband, and her family, in addition to dedicating the star to her mom, Spectrum News reported.
“I’m just feeling extremely grateful and thanking God that I have the chance to arrive at this moment in my life,” she said.
She also added: “…Rodney Peete, my quarterback, I just thank you so much for being such a committed life partner for 29 years since we first met. You have always encouraged me to soar in whatever I do … and let’s just keep getting better and loving each other and keep making it happen.”
Crown Media threw an after-party following the unveiling to honor Peete.
