Nikki Blonsky’s Post-Fight Commentary

For Nikki Blonksy, the family that fights together, stays tight together.

The Hairspray star—who was arrested in July after she and her father Carl got in a punch-up with America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden over airplane seats in the Turks and Caicos islands—tells Entertainment Tonight that the melee has only made the Blonsky bunch closer.

“We are a tight-knit family,” the 19-year-old  says. “We’re just happy to be back together. My family is my life. The best gift that I’ve even been given is my parents.”

Well, sure; they are the ones who trained her in the art of combat, after all.

Blonsky says that she’s also received a shoulder to lean on after the ordeal from Hairspray costar Zac Efron.

“I love him with every inch of my body and soul,” Blonsky gushes. “He has been an amazing support system.”

Hopefully Zac explained to Blonsky that it would be far better to run from trouble in the future.
