We were very excited to learn that JWOWW has landed her first acting role and will be appearing on the recently relaunched soap opera One Life to Live, which premieres online Monday, April 29.
Jenni will be playing the role of a bartender named Nikki, recently hired at a trendy night club called Shelter. Sound familiar? Even though the Jersey Shore star told MTV News that the role of “a bartender who sleeps with her boss” is, in her words, “me, basically,” she admitted that she’s having some trouble remembering her lines.
One night she was going through them with her fiance Roger Mathews and “completely blanked.” Uh-oh, does JWOWW have a case of stage fright?
This role is probably her biggest since Jersey Shore after all, and even though she’ll be making only a brief appearance, it is definitely a big switch from reality TV to a scripted soap. Though Jenni seems to have a good attitude about it, telling MTV News: “If I screw up, I screw up. It’s not like live TV. It's not like New Year's Eve when I was hosting in Times Square and we almost dropped the f-bomb live 17 times. So as long as I'm not live, I think I'm good.”
Even though it definitely won’t be TV live, JWOWW did use to be a bartender herself, and though she’s never slept with her boss, she’s “slept with plenty of people to know the attitude issue” that many club guys have. We have a feeling that tough girl Jenni can handle it! Remember how she fought back with the jerks at the club in Seaside?
