  • Quotes

    • Nikki: We've had some really good guest stars. But I have to go with Alec Baldwin as my favorite. He is so neat and such a movie star. He's handsome and quirky. I was in heaven the week he was on the set.

    • Nikki: I've always wanted to appear in a 3-D Movie, that's always been a goal of mine. If you appear in a 3-D picture you are a shoo-in for an Oscar. There's no competition.

    • Nikki: I'm probably the most introverted extrovert you'll ever meet. Up until I got this show I was constantly told, 'She was really good, but she's just not cute enough.

    • Nikki: Filming scenes like that are always odd but I feel comfortable with Josh and care about him a great deal, so it could be much worse. Scenes like that are just part of the job.

    • Nikki: You're asking the wrong girl about fame. I'm hardly famous. I wouldn't want to trade places with anyone else.

    • Nikki: When all of a sudden, people say, 'Wow, you look nice,' and carry on, it's shocking. Really awkward.

    • Nikki: To be perfectly honest, drama is a lot simpler than comedy.

    • Nikki: There is just so very much I can't do. I don't drive, for one.

    • Nikki: The only other thing that interested me as a kid was being a bricklayer. So if I hadn't become an actress, I would probably be a bricklayer.

    • Nikki: Mary and I look eerily similar but other than that, the differences are pretty much night and day.

    • Nikki: If I didn't have fake nails, my fingers would be bloody stumps.

    • Nikki: I'm hardly famous. I wouldn't want to trade places with anyone else.

    • Nikki: I'm a McDonald's girl - several times a week. Usually the two-cheeseburger combo meal.

    • Nikki: I think I'm as content as one can be.

    • Nikki: I still don't know quite what I'm supposed to do or be.

    • Nikki: I learned how but I have a terrible paranoia and fear. I do not drive an automobile.

    • Nikki: I cannot cook to save my life. I'm really frighteningly useless, when you get down to it.

    • Nikki: For me, I've worked hard for people to think I'm funny.

    • Nikki: All that some actresses want is for people to take them seriously instead of caring about how they look.

    • Nikki: Acting is the only thing I ever really wanted to do, and I'm really ill-prepared to do anything else.

    • Nikki: I'm pretty captivated by reality TV and I know that as an actor I probably shouldn't be saying that, but it's what I like to watch.

    • Nikki: Acting is the only thing I ever really wanted to do, and I'm really ill-prepared to do anything else.

    • Nikki: But then it reached the point where it became kind of odd. 'Thank you very much, but now would you listen to my jokes?'

    • Nikki: I just hope that my poor, sad character eventually ends up with Danny McCoy, who she's been pining after for her whole life.

    • Nikki: I think I'm as content as one can be.

    • Nikki: I'm a McDonald's girl - several times a week. Usually the two-cheeseburger combo meal.

    • Nikki: If I didn't have fake nails, my fingers would be bloody stumps.

    • Nikki: The only other thing that interested me as a kid was being a bricklayer. So if I hadn't become an actress, I would probably be a bricklayer.

    • Nikki: This is not what I want to do with my life, and I don't think it's the right way to a long-lasting career.

    • Nikki: We've had some really good guest stars. But I have to go with Alec Baldwin as my favorite. He is so neat and such a movie star. He's handsome and quirky. I was in heaven the week he was on the set.

    • Nikki: To be perfectly honest, drama is a lot simpler than comedy.

    • Nikki: There's a lot more room for error in drama. With comedy, if you mess up, you fall flat on your face. With drama there's a lot more room to play.

    • Nikki: Mary and I look eerily similar but other than that, the differences are pretty much night and day.

    • Nikki: I'm probably the most introverted extrovert you'll ever meet. Up until I got this show I was constantly told, 'She was really good, but she's just not cute enough.'

    • Nikki: I was really, really, really skinny. Great big mouth on a little face. Just goofy-looking. More goofy than I am now. Really goofy.

    • Nikki: I still don't know quite what I'm supposed to do or be.

    • Nikki: Filming scenes like that are always odd but I feel comfortable with Josh [Duhamel] and care about him a great deal, so it could be much worse. Scenes like that are just part of the job.

    • Nikki: But I'm not going to lie, there's a gross part of my ego that was terrifically flattered - a 16-year-old kid who all her life had been made fun of, when people say, 'You look nice,' of course you're going to feel good.

  • Average looks and below average acting!

    I never did like her in Vegas, she didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the cast. she was kind of cute during the show, but it appears she's had some work done since then and she looks terrible. Compare images from then and now and you'll see what I'm referring to.



    I wish her luck in the future!



    Her acting was very predictable...I judge an actor by whether or not I can tell they're acting. With Nikki, you knew she was trying to act. She was a little over the top and not believable; in my humble opinion.moreless
  • I love her and Danny together

    I like her. She's cute. Dunno why she's getting all these poor reviews. I've only seen the first season though, maybe she gets awful in the end. :P Like, I can agree she might not b the best actress in the show, but I like her :) Oh, and I love her and Danny together
