Bonnie got a chance to talk with the incredibly talented and adorable actress on NBC’s ‘Gossip Gram’ and we learned her tips on how to stay grounded in the cut-throat world of showbiz!

Nikki Blonsky is Hollywood’s BFF! The 22-year-old actress who is best known for her role as Tracy Turnblad in the 2007 hit musical film Hairspray and her current role in the Broadway play Love, Loss, and What I Wore, spoke with our Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller on the set of NBC’s Gossip Gram all about her two favorite men: her Hairspray co-stars Zac Efron and John Travolta!

“Zac is a great guy, he is one of my best friends, I speak to him all the time,” Nikki says. “We love each other to death. There’s nobody that deserves success more than she does.”

But Nikki went on to gush about one other co-star, John!

“Ever since Hairspray John has treated me like one of his own,” Nikki says. “He is someone who I follow everything. John has lead me on a wonderful path and has taught me so much!”

What keeps Nikki so grounded? Her family! “They make me laugh, they are there for me. It’s just keeping those good people around you and remaining who you are … and not changing because the business says you should.”
