Edit:
You have to open an email from whomever you want to add, can't do it from just the contacts list.

Which one of the contacts you talking about?
Click on one, make sure there is an email address associated to that contact and you should be able to add them to the email VIP list.
Thanks a ton. Problem is resolved now.

Yes you can. I do it all the time. Well, I start from the VIP in mail. Tap the circled i. Scroll to bottom of list, tap Add VIP. That takes me to contacts where I tap on who I want to add.

Try just going to contacts and add someone.
Doesn't seem to work for me.

I think you misunderstood his post. He said you can't start at the contacts app, and you can't. You're starting at the email app, which is what he said to do.

I said you start at VIP, then to contacts. No, there is no option in the vCard itself. But you don't have to email someone to add them to VIP. That was my point. From VIP, you go to the contacts list and tap on a contact to add. No need to email them as you stated.

He said you had to email someone to add them to VIP. You don't. I said you start at VIP. Then to contacts, where you tap on a contact in the contacts list.

That is not what he said. He said, "You have to open an email from whomever you want to add, can't do it from just the contacts list." This fixed the problem for the OP because he was starting at contacts rather than email.

But you don't have to open an email. The contact just has to have an email in your contact. Opening an email may offer the option, but you don't HAVE to. I have 47 family, friends, and businesses in my VIP list. None were put there by opening an email.

Ok, you can not add a VIP from the contacts directly.
Open the mail app, making sure you can see all of your mailboxes.
Click the circled i and add people from your contacts there.

But we all know that now ;)
