Actress says it was a bridal shower prank

My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly fooled onlookers by appearing to pee in the street.

Pictures of the actress squatting outside The Abbey bar in West Hollywood were leaked online.

But Jaime, 32, insists she wasn’t actually urinating.

‘Yes…that is me doing dare # 8 at my bridal shower,’ she writes on Twitter.

‘Things are not always what they seem. Notice my hand in the back. It’s pouring a bottle of water!!!

‘C’mon guys! Do you think I would really pee in the entry way to the Abbey in broad DAYLIGHT!!! Way to spin a story!!![sic]’

Jaime announced her engagement to entertainment lawyer Simran Singh earlier this month.
