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!”
