Playing Kaley Cuoco Gets Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, Right Near '8 Simple Rules' Dad John Ritter

Kaley Cuoco gets the ultimate star treatment!

The actress received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during an emotional ceremony on Oct. 29 – and ET was there for the unveiling.

"This is a dream come true," Kaley said in her speech, fighting back tears. "I am forever grateful."

"It's just overwhelming and touching," she told ET. "To be recognized for something that I that I love doing so much, and that is just a part of who I am is extremely overwhelming and I feel honored."

Cuoco's The Big Bang Theory co-stars were by her side for her honor.

The placement of Kaley's star is special too – it’s close to the star of late-comic John Ritter, who played her dad on the series 8 Simple Rules. That was Kaley's first prominent role on television.

"They asked if I had a preference and I said, 'Wow, if I had any dream it would be near John Ritter's," Kaley said. "I'm going to go find it after this and give it a big kiss."

ET was on the set of the hit series when 8 Simple Rules began back in 2002 where Cuoco gushed about working with her TV father.
