Nikki Blonsky's Celebrity Crush: Ed Westwick!

Nikki Blonsky's Celebrity Crush: Ed Westwick!

Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky and America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden were freed from all assault charges stemming from the airport scuffle back in July. Nikki, 20, spoke to OK! about life post-fight:

On what she’s learned from the fight: “I saw the dark side of the industry. I never knew there were people willing to do anything to get their name in the paper. It’s a shame that someone will ruin a person’s life and beat them up to get their 10 minutes of fame back. I think it’s disgusting.”

On how she’s been coping: “We’re a strong family. The Ugly Betty cast has proven to me that there are good people in this business. Success is the best revenge.” (Her cameo airs this Thursday, January 8.)

On if Zac Efron and Amanda Bynes will return for the Hairspray sequel: “Zac has said he’d love to do it again, and I know Brittany Snow is down for sure. I don’t know about Amanda. I hope she will. I want to put on my Tracy Turnblad wig again and dance my little heart out.”

On her celebrity crush: “I’m not going to lie: [British actor] Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl. I think he’s adorable!”

  • pop86

    Ed, have your people get a restraining order ASAP. You now have a stalker.

  • ladybug

  • ra

    stop posting about this fat violent attempted boyfriend stealer.

  • ra

    ed westwick wouldnt touch her with a bargepole

  • Lucy

    Zac better not do HS2, the plot sounds terrible.

    I thought she was the one who started the fight? Stupid girl!! She needs to grow up!

  • asher

    You guys are funny. Why can’t he be friends with Nikki? Because she’s fat? Because she’s effusive?

    Nikki is an alright girl. So is Vanessa. They can both be in his life.

    Butt out of his relationships. If he doesn’t like what she’s saying/doing, he’ll let her know. Otherwise, keep your judging and hate to yourself.

    I´m so exited about Nikki`s Ugly Betty episode, it will be great. Nikki would be a great girlfriend. The plot is just ideas, they will make a great story.

  • ra

    theres been no photos of zac with nikki since 2007.

  • Andreas

    It has been photos in 2008 but it`s also something called phone calls. Why are people reading this if they got sick, that is pretty stupid. She is a great inspiration and her debut album is going to rock!

  • Amanda

    The classy thing would have been to say “no comment”. She’s no better than Bianca. She just thinks she is.

  • You/Me

    I think Nikki Blonsky is full if sh*t. Trying to make herself seem the victim when in fact neither one of these girls obviously has any class.

  • Snow White

    LMAO I’m picturing Ed’s face reading this. Haha

  • ra

    LOL eds face would be hilarious

    And the only pictures in 2008 was at an awards show in january which his actual girlfriend also attended.

  • ra

    LOL eds face would be hilarious

  • Blobsky

    Haha. I dont even think her album would even sell to 10,000
    She has done a live show and yet the review said her voice is like a “rotund bellowing toad stool”

    As for Zac….why associate her with him. She’s nothing but a co-star and I will bet my life they will never be more than that. They arent even best friends.
    Yeah they’ve said it on interviews but what do you expect..this is showbiz.

    Well I just wish her a wonderful New Year.

  • Andreas

    She have done several shows and I have been on one of them, she is fantastic.

    Here is a review from Broadway world:
    Nikki proves that she can sing just about anything with the skill of a singer twice her age. It would be a true shame if Broadway loses her to Hollywood, as her vocal talent would be a great asset to just about any kind of musical.

  • Lpipperoni

    Jared thank you posting again about Nikki. That is so awesome that all charges were dropped against her and hopefully her father will have the same results. Success is best revenge and Nikki Iknow you will go far.

  • BB

    sorry but this review from rex reed in the NY observer says it all……


    I don’t know what to say about the current booking disaster at Feinstein’s at Loew’s Regency, but it’s the wrong room for an amateur like Nikki Blonsky. This rotund, bellowing 19-year-old toadstool delivered the hackneyed goods just fine when she was plucked from her job scooping ice cream in Great Neck and whisked off to Hollywood to star in the movie version of Hairspray. But where do you go without John Travolta playing your mother? After opening with—what else?—“Good Morning Baltimore,” it’s nowhere to go but down. At these prices, even the Blonsky family and their friends (who attended in abundance) yelling “Brava!” deserve better material than “The Shoop Shoop Song.” Wider but no taller than Billy Barty, Ms. Blonsky is only 19. Her influences are Patsy Cline and the awful Frank Wildhorn, not Peggy Lee and Cy Coleman. So she sings “Crazy” and two Wildhorn songs that sound exactly alike, with all the animation of a fire hydrant. She’s only 19, for chrissake. Then get ready for excerpts from shows she did in high school. Just because she played Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd does not mean sophisticated audiences want to hear Sondheim massacred with good intentions. If I wanted to see a high-school Angela Lansbury, I’d go to Great Neck. Oh, well, she’s only 19. There’s nothing wrong with a young point of view, but with a $60 cover for the $75 “premium seats” plus a $40 food and beverage minimum, what is she doing here? She’s only 19, so why is Nikki Blonsky singing the “Habanera” from Bizet’s Carmen? I never spent so much time looking at my watch. But enough already. She’s fearless. She’s green as raw broccoli. She’s also lucky as hell. How did she get a coveted booking at Feinstein’s? Did I forget to mention she’s only 19 years old?


  • BB

    oh, and it will be interesting to see how carl blonsky fairs, its not so easy to sweep the fact that he put a woman in the hospital under the rug!

  • Andreas

    His big point is that she was 19 – what a great review. Everyone that did come to that show wanted to see Nikki and they got a great experience. I have talked to several others that was there. Nikki has also done a show with Regis Philbin that was very good. What for her album and everyone can see how great she is.

  • Angela

    I hate Bianca Golden. She was a beeyotch on ANTM. Ugly no talent ghetto fabulous chick that came in with purple extensions.

  • shenanyginz

    why do i still not believe her side of the story? why dont i believe she was the innocent one?

  • B.mofasho

    Ummm from what i hear her and her father started the fight so she needs to stop lying!!!

  • hmm

    Wow, she’s a name dropper. Nikki, you showed what kind of person she is and what kind of family she comes from when she was in an airport fighting just like Bianca. Her father almost killed a woman and she feels it’s necessary to give an interview puffing herself up and ignoring his criminal behavior. She’s a loser who has made a career out of being overweight and she’s no role model.

  • Marie

    I still can’t believe that these children are so threatened by the talents of Nikki Blonsky If half of these children would check their facts before they open their mouths it would be great. As for HS2, Zac would be a fool not to sign for it. Oh! I forgot the mouse

  • LuckyL

    Was there originally a “Hairspray” sequel? Because no one wants some bull**** Disney made. Get the original writer please.

    And stop being an instigator Jared! Drop this sh**! The bit** started the fight!

  • LuckyL

    Lying cu**. Sorry obese people can’t be copping two seats, and probably a third for their “luggage”. Bit** is not that famous yet that she could be acting like a diva, and her like an ANIMAL.

    We all know how rude those Long Islanders/ New Yorkers can be!

  • Cynthia

    Love Ed too, Nikki! Can’t wait to see her on UB!

  • David Archuleta

    nice hair!

  • molly

    NOOOOOOOOOO! zac dont do HS2, if zac wants to do adult films he better not do HS2. because he will always be known as the guy that sings and dances in movies.

  • marta

    Team Blonsky! All the way. Fuck all the haters. She has 10 times more talent than any of the Disney kids and that wah-up Bianca. I love you Nikki!

  • anonTWO

    um… Blonsky’s dad sat in the turks and caicos’ cooler for months on end
    and Bianca’s Mom had a fractured skull resulting from the fracas.
    These are facts to consider when you hear Blonsky run her mouth about this shameful incident.

  • Blobsky

    Yeah talent right.. Can she even reach her toes when she bends over? lmfao
    We are not threatened….puhleez..
    Maybe by her freaking mouth who doesnt want to shut the hell up just to get someone to talk about her.

  • Kels

    Nikki is a great singer and actress but she should have not said all that stuff she should have just said no comment but i guess she is still mad from it and she just wanted to get her anger out and no one really knows who started the fight because you really dont know who to believe but really that was last year so its time to look forward and not backwards. Oh and Ed Westwick is really hot!!!

  • ladycharlie

    i LOVE ED.

  • ladycharlie

    he’s the most henderson guy I’ve ever seen.

  • http://jj VAH+ZDAE=ZDAH

    Since when did she have an album coming out. I never heard about it. WOW though she’s not even that famous and she’s already starting fights
