Zac Efron and Nikki Blonsky by Lalo Yasky/WireImage.com
Since her family airport brawl over the summer,
has turned to her rock to help get her through the nasty ordeal -
"I love him with every inch of my body and soul," Blonsky told
in a recent interview. "He's stayed in touch and he has been so supportive through everything that I've gone through in my life; he is one of the best, best influences and people that I can ask to have in my life."
Blonsky also opened up about her family and coping with the difficult situation. "We're just happy to be back together. My family is my life."
Both the actress and her father were
arrested in early July
on charges of assault with the family of
alum Bianca Golden when a brawl erupted at the Providenciales International Airport in Turks and Caicos over saving seats. -
