Former “Pawn Stars” cast member Olivia Black may be off the History Channel’s hit series, but that doesn’t mean she is done with the Gold and Silver Pawn shop all together.

In an exclusive interview, Black, 27, told FOX 411 show personality Rick Harrison reached out to her after her firing from series to let her know she is still welcome to work at the shop.

“[He] let me know I was actually only let go from the show and not the shop,” she said.

She plans to head back to the Las Vegas pawn store to work, meet with fans and sign autographs when the series is not filming.

She said that it was not completely clear why she was let go from the series, but because her firing came days after the National Enquirer leaked photos of her 2008 nude shoot for the adult website SuicideGirls.com, many speculated her work for the website was the reason.

“I don’t have the actual reason as to why I am not a part of the show anymore,” she explained. “They didn’t state it, and I didn’t ask—I was just in such shock I didn’t think to ask.”

Black has since gone back to working for SuicideGirls.

“They reached out to me and we just shot a new set of photos [on Sunday],” she said.

She added that she believes there is no reason why her work for SuicideGirls, which consists of posing in lingerie and nude for photos, should impact her role on the History Channel series. Since she was abruptly let go last week, she has since started a petition on Change.org to try and get back on the show.

“We want to show that America doesn’t mind that I am confident and naked, and I can still be part of the show."

Either way, now she only has fond memories of her year working on “Pawn Stars.”

“It was a really amazing experience and a lot of fun,” she said.

The History Channel and A&E did not immediately return FOX 411’s request for comment.
