Ya gotta do what ya gotta do to pay the bills! Just ask fireworks-spokesman Joey Fatone!

Last we heard from Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky, she was working the register at a high-end shoe boutique in her hometown of Great Neck, NY…although she was of course totally denying it!

Now, we're hearing that Nikki's gotten her cosmetology license and she's landed a job at Superstar Hairstylists (above, and below) in her hometown.

Here's what customer Sally Miles had to say about it:

Nikki Blonsky Takes To Twitter To Dispel Boutique Rumors!

Nikki Blonsky No Boutique

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!

Via Twitter:

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!

Let us know what's up next, Nikki!

From Hairspray To Selling Shoes! Nikki Blonsky Is Working WHERE?!

Ouch! This has got to be awkward!

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!

We're with her on the first part!

Nikki Blonsky appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and was asked if she thought Zac Efron and VaneXXXa Hudgens will ever get married.

Not only does Nikki point blank say, "NO," but she thinks SHE is the one for Zacquisha!

Keep dreamin', bb! That's what we do!
