A fourth hoped that Tracee's star would be put close to Diana's one, which is located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard.

Diana recently showed up on the 48-year-old's Instagram feed, as she celebrated the announcement that her mom was releasing new music.

Tracee shared a series of throwback clips of Diana performing and the Ain't No Mountain High Enough songstress looked nothing short of show-stopping.

Diana wowed in a series of flirty outfits, from red leather to lingerie, and the throwback performances were exceptional.
