“One Life to Live” fans were shocked earlier this year when it was announced that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame would be joining the cast of The OnLine Network drama series in the recurring role of Nikki, but the reality star and actress is having a blast. When Soap Opera Network caught up with Farley during SELF Magazine‘s “SELF ROCKS the SUMMER” music party last night, the actress revealed that she actually prefers being called just Jenni vs JWoww, the nickname she became famous for via MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” She also reveals that we can expect to see her character in Llanview when the soap resumes filming in September.
On Thursday, March 28, when news first broke on the hiring of Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley (“Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW”) on “One Life to Live” in the recurring role of Nikki, Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network noted, “JWOWW got some acting tips from Josh Kelly, who plays con man Cutter Wentworth. Things got out of control after Kelly showed JWOWW how to do a ‘pretend’ slap. After a brief demonstration, Kelly asked JWOWW to slap, and she really did!” That slap is now available for viewing as MTV takes you being the scenes of JWOWW’s first day on the set of the iconic soap. Also included in the video is Kelly discussing “showmances,” where co-stars find romance off-screen.
