Sorry, shoe shoppers: Nikki Blonsky can't get that Manolo for you in a size 8.

The Hairspray actress, 22, took to Twitter earlier this week to dispel an internet rumor claiming that she had taken a job at a shoe store in Great Neck, New York.

"So much false reporting and false quotes," Blonsky (who starred on ABC Family show Huge) wrote. "NO career changing!"

The star did indeed do some work at the posh Steven Dann boutique in her Great Neck, her hometown on Long Island -- but nothing long-term! "Just experimented for a day working at a friends boutique to see what it was like," Blonsky explained. "NO singing or dancing happened, but it was fun trying something new for a day."

Still, store owner Steve Dann told RadarOnline that the actress was working "two to three days a week dependent on her schedule."
