Vanessa Hudgens not dropped from "High School Musical" 3
(worstpreviews.com) - It sounded like Disney might fire Vanessa Hudgens from the "High School Musical" franchise after all. According to OK! Magazine, Hudgens had been dropped from the third film, due to the fall out from naked pictures of the young star that leaked online. "Disney finally decided that they don't want her back. 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," an insider tells the magazine."Totally untrue. It is an old rumor," Hudgens rep tells Access Hollywood. "OK! never bothered to fact check with me but they did call Disney who said it wasn't true, but yet OK! ran it anyway. Apparently OK! magazine was having a slow news day."A spokesperson for Disney says Hudgens is still in the game: "We are still in negotiations with all of the 'High School Musical' stars."Earlier this year, nude photos of Hudgens appeared on the Web. The actress quickly admitted the pictures were real and apologized to her fans. At the time, Disney backed its young star. "Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she's learned a valuable lesson," said spokeswoman Patti McTeague.
