Vanessa Hudgens WILL Be Back for High School Musical 3

It’s official!

Those naked pics didn’t ruin her career. (Like we ever thought they would.)

Vanessa will be back for HSM 3, as will Ashley Tisdale.

“Vanessa is locked for the movie,” a HSM3 source says. “She is very happy that the deal is done.”

The source also says Vanessa will receive a “substantial increase” in pay.

Well, of course. She’s a household name now. Ashley Tisdale’s kicking herself for not thinking of it first.

I think everyone needs to start leaking naked pictures of themselves. Teachers, policemen, janitors, bloggers — all the underappreciated, underpaid members of our fine society — should just start randomly leaking naked photos of themselves and then expect a pay raise and a reality TV show. It seems to be a surefire way to make a name for yourself.

She’s Not That Innocent

Does this look like the angelic face of High School Musical‘s Gabriella Montez?

No.

This looks like a chick who’s ready to take all her clothes off.

This girl is gonna be trouble.

I love it.

Vanessa attended the Frederick’s of Hollywood 2008 Spring Collection Fashion Show with her “boyfriend,” Zac Efron, who looks less than pleased to be at a lingerie show. For obvious reasons.

Things Get Hairy for Vanessa Hudgens and HSM 3

Vanessa Anne Hudgens Not Coming Back to Disney for High School Musical 3?

I don’t really believe any of these, but we’ve got another source claiming Vanessa Hudgens has been 86′d from High School Musical 3 after the naked pics of her hit the web.

“Disney finally decided that they don’t want her back,” an insider reveals to OK!. “They feel that as long as Zac Efron is in the movie, all will be fine. He’s the real star — the household name — and, most importantly, he comes without baggage.”

The source also reports that one of the Cheetah Girls — Adrienne Baillon, 23, or possibly 23-year-old Sabrina Bryan — will take Vanessa’s place. “The producers think that after Dancing With the Stars, Sabrina will be more famous than Vanessa.”

Personally, I think this is bullshit. Who the hell is Sabrina Bryan? Maybe in the tween market she’s a big name, but they’d be crazy to ditch Vanessa now. She’s a way bigger name than any of these people after those pics hit the net. And most of her biggest fans don’t even know they’re out there.

If Vanessa doesn’t come back for HSM3, it’s because she chose not to, not because Disney ditched her.

The Next Generation

Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus mug for the cameras at the Power of Youth benefit in LA on Saturday.

Who else is super excited for when these girls start hitting the club scene? They are soooo ready to start causing trouble. And we are soooo ready for some new blood around here.

Thank you, Disney, for churning out generation after generation of tabloid fodder. I don’t know where we’d be without you.

Look, Ma! Not Naked!

Vanessa Anne Hudgens Bowling at Best Buddies And Lucky Strike Lanes Strike Up A Friendship

So Vanessa Anne Hudgens took a well-deserved break from photographing her vagina to attend a charity bowling event in Hollywood. And to demonstrate just how serious she is about wearing clothes in the presence of cameras, she brought along her kid sister, Stella, who totally got the shallow end of the gene pool in that family. (Is that crossing a line? Eh.)

You know what, though?

A month ago, I would never, ever, ever have run photos of some chick from High School Musical bowling. I’d leave that shit to Tiger Beat. (Do they still make Tiger Beat? Or did the final issue have, like, Corey Haim on the cover? Related: Am I eligible for a senior citizen discount at the movies yet?) But ever since she got all naked on the Internet, I care!!! Way to set an example for your kid sister, Vanessa.

Vanessa Hudgens Cancels Leno Appearance

Vanessa Hudgens Cancels Tonight Show with Jay Leno Appearance

In what was probably a wise PR move, teen-queen-turned-porn-queen Vanessa Hudgens canceled an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, which was supposed to tape on Thursday.

The appearance was scheduled before the recent nudie pics of Vanessa hit the web. She canceled at the last minute, and her rep gave no explanation.

Say what you want about those damn pictures, but, before they hit the web, I couldn’t have told you what color hair Vanessa Hudgens had. Now I can tell you her hair color — on top and on bottom — and it’s fucking news when she cancels on Jay Leno. The next thing you know, it’ll be on CNN when her dog goes missing, Paris Hilton-style.

This is how you make it big, girls.
