The real reason Nikki Blonsky disappeared after Hairspray.

What happened to Nikki Blonsky after Hairspray

Blonsky, along with her father Carl and mother Karen, got into a brawl with the family of former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Bianca Golden.

The two families were waiting at the airport in Turks and Caicos on July 30, 2008 when the Blonsky family clashed with the Goldens. 

Today reported at the time that Nikki and her father made racial remarks towards Bianca (who is Black), before the heated exchange turned into a physical fight. Bianca’s mother Elaine Golden got so badly injured in the altercation that she reportedly had to be airlifted to hospital. 

Meanwhile, Bianca, Nikki, and Nikki’s father Carl were all arrested. Bianca and Nikki were charged with actual bodily harm and granted bail. Carl was charged with assault with grievous bodily harm and denied bail.

At the time, Blonsky told People that the argument began when Bianca’s brother George tripped a passenger who had been saving someone’s seat. 

“He looked at me and said, ‘What the f**k are you looking at, you fat white b**ch?'” Blonsky claimed.
