The tides are changing for Baywatch alum Nicole Eggert. The 42-year-old star has traded her iconic red bathing suit for an ice cream scoop.
She had submitted a claim for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to the courts on September 10th, 2013 – her third attempt in less than 12 months – according to RadarOnline.
However, both of Nicole’s previous claims were dismissed.
But with the last try she opted to file under Chapter 13 – which allows the individual to avoid liquidation and the subsequent foreclosure on their house.
Instead, they are given the opportunity to make mortgage payments on the property.
Nicole first showed off her shiny new aqua-colored “Ice Cream Shoppe on Wheels” two weeks ago with an enthusiastic Twitter post.
On the company’s website, Nicole describes her new venture as a “Family run business bringing a fun, unique, and innovative twist to the ice cream man.” (The most obvious twist being that this ice cream man is actually a pretty former TV star.)
And Eggert is taking her business seriously. Since the truck’s launch, the mother of two has been hard at work, tweeting updates about her location, driving the truck, and, of course, passing out the goodies. In other words, unlike Baywatch or Charles in Charge, this is a one-woman show.
Though it’s no doubt a lot of responsibility, Eggert seems to be rising to the occasion. Opting for comfort over glamour (or, say, a bright red bathing suit), she wore a printed blouse, cutoff jean shorts, and sneakers as she made her way around Los Angeles over the weekend and interacted with her customers. A slick ponytail and glasses completed her work ensemble.
So, what’s on the menu? Everything from old-fashioned root beer floats and ice cream cake to simple ice cream scoops and popsicles — and from the photos we’ve seen so far, these cold treats all look downright delicious.
Only time will tell whether this new adventure pays off, but so far it seems like Scoops Ice Cream Truck is really hitting the sweet spot. Regardless of how it all shakes out, however, you have to be impressed that Summer Quinn can handle a truck.
