The LA hospital welcomed another celebrity today when star was admitted to the hospital.  The 20-year-old was apparently suffering from a case of appendicitis.  According to his rep, the actor has since had his surgery and is now recuperating.  (Maybe can shoot a few new photos to keep him company?)

Vanessa Hudgens Talks About the Nude Photos

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Kids, Music, Cable, Gossip,

Vanessa HudgensFor a while, seemed to be the Golden Girl for . Female lead of the mega-successful franchise, girlfriend to heartthrob —it seemed Hudgens could do no wrong. Until she did.

of the star surfaced, a scandal broke, and abounded. Now, Hudgens is being candid about the revealing shots for the first time.

The young star bared it all (figuratively speaking) to Seventeen magazine, saying the pics were taken for someone she was dating at one time. She called the experience “traumatic,” thanked her fans for their continued support, and expressed desire that others might learn from her mistakes. Hudgens also glowingly reported on boyfriend and co-star Zac Efron, though gossip suggests the pair have a somewhat on-again, off-again affair.

Vanessa Hudgens Offered Raise for ‘High School Musical 3’

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Kids, Music, Cable, Editorial, Gossip, News,

Vanessa HudgensWow.  Wow.  Ladies and gents, it’s now official.  Apparently sex does sell.

Despite her now infamous photo scandal, has been asked back for .  And though could have used the embarrassment as reason to lowball their offer, they have instead rewarded the nudie queen with a raise.  According to Us Magazine, has also been confirmed for the sequel—though I doubt her paycheck will be as ‘substantial’ as the one reportedly given to Hudgens.

I’m still not really not sure why I was surprised to hear this news.  As a former marketing major, I’m fully aware there’s no such thing as bad publicity.  And given s ability to still launch a hit album these days, it’s apparent the public really doesn’t care what celebrities do in their private lives anymore.

Now if or any of the other were smart enough, they’d get themselves into some ‘trouble’ real quick; apparently Disney’s willing to shell out the dough.

Recap of Vanessa Hudgens Nude Photo Fiasco

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Cable, Talent, Gossip,

Vanessa Hudgens has been getting her fair share (or even more) of media attention lately. That’s what happens when naked photos get “leaked” to the Internet. Something similar worked for and American Idol’s Antonella Barba (who stole the spotlight not for her singing, but for her photos). Because the photos haven’t hurt, but helped, Hudgens, some of the media is saying it might have all been some sort of master plan instigated by the young star. Disney is trying to reduce press by ordering stars of the High School Musical franchise not to talk to reporters about Hudgens, as Kaycee Stroh refused to comment to reporters at an Emmy party. Gossip says that Hudgens and on- and off-screen boyfriend Zac Efron might not be eager to take part in High School Musical 3 as it is, though has made no announcements about Hudgens in the movie either way. Hudgens is currently being sued by her own lawyer for unpaid attorney fees.

Vanessa Hudgens Lawsuit Trouble

DescriptionAlready wondering if she’ll be cashing another paycheck from Disney, is now facing a different financial matter.  According to TMZ, the star is reportedly delinquent in paying her attorney’s legal fees.  Of the $5 million he’s apparently helped her secure, lawyer Brad Schall claims he is still owed $150,000.  One sold photo could take care of all that.

On a side note—our latest girl done wrong has provided my favorite ‘Quote of the Week’ thus far.  During an interview on yesterday (something taped before her scandal), Vanessa said:  “I’m very low-key. I keep my personal life to myself.”  

No further comment needed.

More Vanessa Hudgens Photos Released

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Kids, Late Night, Music, Cable, NBC, Gossip,

Vanessa HudgensAs we reported earlier, canceled a scheduled appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday.  While it was safe to assume she was still embarrassed about her infamous nudie pic, it turns out she may have been reacting to another round of photos altogether.

Former friends everywhere have been opening up their shoeboxes and sharing their favorite stills of the star.  The latest ones released yesterday, reminiscent of the racy photos took with , at least have her fully clothed this time.  One photo shows Vanessa almost connecting tongues with another girlfriend while a second apparently shows her touching a friend’s breast.

We can only hope was apprised of all her photos before they issued their (weak) statement of support; I don’t imagine they will stop coming out of the woodwork anytime soon.

Vanessa Hudgens Invited to Join ‘Girls Gone Wild’

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Kids, Cable, The CW, WB, Gossip, Rumors,


Joe Francis, head of the Girls Gone Wild franchise, has reportedly extended a business opportunity ’ way.  Francis—who is currently locked up in Nevada for just one of his many legal woes—proved that even behind bars, he likes to help poor girls out.  Should Vanessa need some financial help, she could make a nice $500,000 just by joining the GGW family.  Well Isn’t that sweet?

Before I go on, let me make a few things clear:  #1)  I think Vanessa was a complete idiot for snapping a photo that would inevitably be leaked.  #2)  I would never advise her to be associated with anyone named Joe or Francis.  But here’s a thought:  Should Hudgens want to avoid being typecast in the mold, would her ‘unfortunate’ situation give her the opportunity to break free?

Drake Bell

An inside source is now telling People magazine that Vanessa Hudgens’ photo session links way back to another teen idol:  , star of ‘s

Prior to her current stardom, Hudgens reportedly snapped and emailed several racy photos of herself to the actor.  While it’s unclear if the two ever dated in real-life, she did appear in a 2006 episode of his show as his girlfriend.  (Of course we all know by now that she is currently dating her co-star, ).

Bell’s rep claims that Drake never received those photos…though I’m sure he has by now.

Disney Reacts to Vanessa Hudgens Nude Photo

DisneyWell if you were wondering how Disney would react to the Vanessa Hudgen’s scandal, you can interpret their extremely short and simple statement for yourself:

“Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment.  We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”

If you notice very closely, the statement was very carefully worded and didn’t exactly scream full support for the star.  Money had been a rumored factor in the ongoing HSM3 negotiations—and my guess is that will now exploit this new situation to the hilt.  Hudgens would obviously be very lucky to still have a job at this point, but Disney is also smart enough to realize how popular the young star has become (for better or for worse).

Am I the only one wondering how Ari (Jeremy Piven) would handle this situation on ?
