JWoww can’t remember acting lines

JWoww is finding it hard remembering her lines for her brief cameo on US soap opera One Life to Live even though she admits she basically played herself, a bartender who sleeps with her boss.

The Jersey Shore star, real name Jenni Farley, will make a brief appearance as a bartender on One Life to Live.

But the fun-loving 27-year-old admits the switch from reality television to a scripted drama has been a tricky one to make.

Fortunately the cast and her fiancé Roger Matthews have stepped in to help the star with her memorisation skills.

"The only problem is remembering my lines and knowing where to step and where to stand,” she told MTV News. “So I just keep repeating my lines over and over with the cast, saying it along with them helps a lot.”

The star confesses she’s still hitting stumbling blocks.

“Last night I was going through them with [my fiancé] Roger and I completely blanked and today I'm doing better,” she explained.

Her trouble with the part may come as a surprise as Jenni admits she has no issues relating to her character.

In fact the promiscuous, tight T-shirt wearing mixologist she will play on the small screen is not an unfamiliar role at all.

"I'm playing a bartender who sleeps with her boss. So it's me, basically,” she said.

“I used to be a bartender. I never slept with my boss, but I slept with plenty of people to know the attitude issue. And he's bringing around other girls in front of my face, so this role is totally me from night to day, day to night.”

In the end Jenni isn’t too worried about her hiccups because she’s suffered worse embarrassments in the past. She’s having a good time on set and hopes fans will enjoy watching her episode as well.

"If I screw up, I screw up," she shrugged. "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.”

Jenni will make her debut on One Life to Live April 29.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
