So…what's the verdict, Nikki? Can you get us a deal on a new pair of shoes or NOT??? LOLz.
Earlier this month, we heard that Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky, who also starred in the short-lived ABC Family series Huge last summer, had started working the register at a high-end shoe boutique in Great Neck, NY called Steven Dann.
Last week we ran a story that Nikki Blonsky from Hairspray had made an odd career move from the entertainment industry to a high-end boutique employee in Great Neck, NY.
Well, according to the actress herself, that's just not true!
So much false reporting! & false quotes. NO career changing! just experimented 4 a day working @ a friends boutique 2 see what it was like.
Well, there's NOTHING wrong with working in a boutique, but we're really glad to hear that your talents aren't being diverted from entertainment!
Plus, there's totally something to be said for trying out a different line of work just to see what it's like, regardless of having been in big movies or on TV. Heck, Mike Rowe has been doing it for years — except we don't think he's ever done a high-end boutique! LOLz!
We last saw Nikki Blonsky as the main character in the short-lived ABC Family series Huge last summer, but apparently, the actress has taken a hiatus from the entertainment business…to work behind the register at a high-end shoe boutique in Great Neck, NY called Steven Dann!
According to sources:
"Steven says she's one of the best employees he's ever had! Nikki had known Steven for a long time. When she started her career she got shoes, bags and accessories from the store for red carpets but recently approached him about working at the store. So it was done. Customers come in and see her and ask, 'Oh my God! What are you doing here? Are you shopping?', and she laughs and says, 'No, I'm working!' It's a little uncomfortable for [Nikki] obviously, but the customer will ask her to sign her autograph on the receipt and she does. She's really sweet to the little kids that come in the store. She even sings and dances for the customers, busting out the tunes from Hairspray! She's supposedly working on a project that will catapult her career, something bigger than Hairspray."
Wow! Well, we have to give her credit for keeping a positive attitude about the whole thing!
We're sure it can't be easy to go from being GIVEN high-end shiz to having to sell it!
Hopefully at some point we'll see her again on the silver screen!
But for now - hope you don't have to deal with two many sweaty feet this summer, gurl!
Hairspray's Nikki Blonsky and parents, Carl and Karen are being sued by their lawyer Michael J. Griffith who is claiming that the family owes him $23,534 for representing them during their airport brawl with ANTM contestant Bianca Golden.
What is going on with this family??
Nikki needs another job ASAP so that someone can pay the bills!
