Nikki Blonsky denies working at a shoe store

Fame can be tough. One minute your starring in a major motion picture and a TV show. The next you’re working at a shoe store.

This may or may not be the case of “Hairspray” and “Huge” star Nikki Blonsky, who was reported to be working at a shoe store, albeit a high-end one, in Great Neck, New York. For obvious and slightly terrible reasons, the story went viral.

Blonsky took to her Twitter to deny the reports: “So much false reporting! & false quotes. NO career changing! just experimented 4 a day working @ a friends boutique 2 see what it was like.”

But not so, said the owner of the Steven Dann boutique, a friend of Blonsky’s.

“The next time a friend asks u for help, think again before you say YES......,” Steven Dann tweeted, just days after telling Blonsky “LOVE YOU” on Twitter.

“She was scheduled to work two to three times a week, until this media frenzy took over,” Dann told E! News. “I wish Nikki a ton of luck for whatever comes next for her.” Dann told other outlets that Blonsky sang and danced at the store, another claim she denied.
