Nikki Blonsky: Brawling Her Way onto ‘Ugly Betty’

E! reports that Nikki Blonsky, Tracey Turnblad to all you Hairspray fans, filmed a guest shot on ABC’s Ugly Betty on Tuesday. She will play an assistant at Elle who befriends Betty, but might have evil on the brain.

It’s good to know that Blonsky (who is scheduled to appear in court on December 1 to face charges of common assault and actual bodily harm) is still getting work despite her legal troubles.

Blonsky and her father Carl Blonsky were involved in a fracas with former America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden and her family on July 29 at Turks and Caicos’ Providenciales International Airport. The dispute was allegedly over saved seats in a lounge.

Golden’s mother was injured, and both Mr. Blonsky and Golden are also facing charges.

Blonsky on Betty might seem hazardous, but this is the show that employed Lindsay Lohan.  They’re used to at-risk girls.
