Disney Backs Vanessa Hudgens

Disney Backs Vanessa Hudgens

Disney is speaking out on the Vanessa Hudgens nude photo scandal.

Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment,” said Disney Channel spokeswoman Patti McTeague. “We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”

Vanessa apologized earlier today for the photos, which show her smiling as she posed naked and in underwear in a bedroom with a red curtain behind her.

Negotiations are ongoing for the High School Musical 3 feature film — including Vanessa and co-star boyfriend Zac Efron.

Disney may offer Miss Hudgens significantly less money because of this unfortunate scandal but my guess is Mister Efron will have none of that. Touche!

    “Disney may offer Miss Hudgens significantly less money because of this unfortunate scandal but my guess is Mister Efron will have none of that. Touche!”

    Oh I loved that. I really think the only reason Zac is doing the HSM movies cause of V – he says in a lot of interviews that he can’t even watch them because they’re so… well, not bad. But I’m sure not many teenage guys can sit through them.

    But yeah, I think that if Disney had fired V, Zac wouldn’t have done it. And he won’t like it if she gets less money either.

  • ricki

    I’m of the camp that thinks the first time zac ever saw vanessa nekkid was with those photos like the rest of the world. Dude is gay.

  • Curious

    Well, compared to what some of her elders and contemporaries do in front of a camera, her little lapse of judgment in this instance is not very serious.

    The images will, however, always be out there now.

  • mylabs

    The upcoming months is going to be interesting for Vanessa and Zac. This whole scandal is far from over.

    please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i guess these rumors are a joy for you guys, and you’ll never give it up.

    i hope zac and nessa are chilling in australia!!!!!!

    thanks again jj.

  • [~Famous~]

    disney pays them peanuts, lol and they make an extremely large amount of guap off them. why get rid of a cash-cow. they’ll keep her cause by next week everyone will have forgotten about those stupid pictures. sadly slutnessa will be doing disney movies for the next 20 years. lmao

    i hope she thanks zac every day for making her famous, she’s like the child version of jennifer aniston. hahaha

  • Jen

    We’ll see how it plays out over the next couple of weeks, especially as they are in Australia to promote HSM2.

    Thanks for the updates, Jared! Keep us posted on any other reactions to the story (esp Zac) and on any interviews that he is doing now in Melbourne.

    Proud of V for owning of to a mistake, it takes guts. But, yah, those pics will never go away.

  • tess

    ok, well, apparently everyone here loves vanessa, but this is like the stupidest thing i’ve ever heard. i hope zac finally gets rid of her. why would you pose naked if you have a boyfriend?

  • anne

    vanessa i love u you are great and zac i love u too u two are great and u make the bst couple ever its all i gotta say im with u guys

  • Disgusted

    Disney thinks this is ok because she said “sorry”

    Disney said it was a “lapse in judgement”

    What do they have to say about her being a minor, 15 or younger when these photos were taken. is that ok too??? What do they have to say to the parents who have to explain why Vanessa Hudgens took naked pictures to their young daughters? I can guarantee the next HSM3 will not be as HUGE as 1 and 2 were. My children will not see it and I will not buy anymore HSM merchandise!

    Nothing like a slap on the wrist!

  • betduke

    Geez, how Disney has changed. I remember the days when employees at their parks couldn’t even have a mustache. Oh wait, apparently neither does Vanessa. Hypocrites!

    well, at least we already saw her in her bday suit, everytime i see her pic with the clothes on the bday suit pic pops up in the back of my head heh.

  • stacy

    disgusted remember you were young too
    this was a mistake from a kid
    do you kick her while shes down i think not
    have mercy and you will be shown mercy jeez
    give the girl a break

  • yuck

    well, that’s disappointing.

  • Ew

    i do not understand. so apparently she doesn’t have to pay any kind of price for this,just because she said sorry?i guess celerity’s can get away with anything if they say sorry.

    i guess she really needed the attention,because she isn’t getting any kind of work.

    i’m NOT a fan or will i ever be.

  • DENiiSE
