Nikki Blonsky Finds a New Job

by at . Comments

Even when their careers sputter out, some stars don't know when to quit. They'll Tweet fake retirement announcements and random photos just to remain in the news.

But not Nikki Blonsky.

The actress enjoyed a moderately successful career, starring in Hairspray and Huge, among other gigs, but the acting well then dried up. Now? She's behind the register at a shoe store in her hometown of Great Neck, New York.

"[Owner Steven Dann] says she's one of the best employees he's ever had!" a source tells E! News. "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."

Blonsky might return to the entertainment world at some point. But for now it's nice to see a grounded young woman simply understanding the hand she's been dealt and playing those cards as best she can, Twitter-free and reality show-free, isn't?

Nikki was chosen out of hundreds of young women to play in Hairspray, and she ended up being a star. She promoted that film and loved being a part of the show business atmosphere. By all indications, her star has dimmed for the time being, but I feel that she is to be admired for making herself available to accept a lower paying job while waiting to become "in demand again!"

What a fat cow. I don't want to see her swiss cheese ass in a reality TV show. Those prego white chicks are easy to eyeball...I watch with the sound on mute and FF on my DVR. Great entertainment. And only one Daddy each girl ... You know that these 'itches spend a lot of time on their knees...

I credit this woman for being grounded but who's to say she wouldnt have turned down a Reality Show if it meant a $200k pay check?! Im just saying.
