Nikki Blonsky of Hairspray fame is the latest actress in the midst of a controversy to wind up guest-starring on an episode of Ugly Betty. This will be the first time Blonsky, 19, has acted on television. In the episode, which is filming this week in New York, she’ll play an assistant at Mode rival Elle magazine who befriends Betty, played by America Ferrara, but may have ulterior motives. Blonsky is due in court on December 1 on charges of common assault following an incident at Turks and Caicos’ Providenciales International Airport last July. Lindsay Lohan also recently appeared in four episodes of the hit series.
