Just how precious is it of Disney to stand by their cash cow Vanessa Hudgens? She and the rest of the cast are making millions for them so they can certainly overlook a nude photo on the internet of one of their stars! Back in the day it would have been an outrage and she would be fired at age 18 for such a thing. Do you think Shirley Temple would have done such a thing much less be forgiven by the studio? I am not suprised she posed nude and I expect she and Zack go at it like rabbits, but not in front of the kiddies PLEASE!!!!!! These really one ones need some wholesome role models at least for a few years in their "tweens"! All to soon they have to be faced with the Paris, Nicoles and Britteney's of this world! What happened to pride and self-respect girls?

It's all business. I wouldn't get rid of her either if she was bringing in the money. Neither would anyone else. Now since everyone is making such a big deal over this, every teenage boy is trying to find Vanessa's nude pics on the web. Who cares? She's not involved in pornographic pics. She's just showing her body. It's disturbing that America makes such a big deal over something like this when there are more important matters to discuss in this country.

A nude shot. wow, who cares. With the clothes that kids are wearing these days they might as well be nude anyway. She made a mistake. And all these people that are complaining about it,saying all this and that about the whole role model thing, need to be their kid's role model themselves. Don't trust a TV or a TV show to teach your kids right from wrong, do it yourself! She made a mistake, it happens. Some people get caught, some people don't.

It's her personal pictures and somebody decided to go behind her back and leak the pictures to the public. It was her choice to take the picture and its her personal life that the stupid media should not get involoved with. Thats why i hate the media, they make things seem bigger than they really are and that are none of their business because they are stupid and have nothing else to do.

Wow Disney...great message for kids. In this entertainment world of Paris, Lindsay, Nicole, bratz dolls...I am so glad I don't have kids. I go to malls and see how parents let their girls dress and they are dressing more provocative than I am, and I'm 30! When I was their age, I thought wearing lipstick was a huge deal. But these girls today are wearing hooker-in-training outfits. So I guess in the end, Disney is just the lesser of all evils. Not to mention parents who let television raise their children instead of doing the job themselves.

I was emailed this article and couldnt agree with the following comment more...

"First off, some took (stole) that photo from her and then posted it on the internet. How would you feel if someone took your nude photo and posted it without your consent? I know that some out there will say "well she's a celebrity and therefore in the public domain." But even though I have a dim view of celebrity, I would respect her privacy as a human being."

"And finally, and maybe it's just me, but sensationalizing her nudity makes her normal nude body into the something abnormal, extraordinary. And maybe that's what is wrong with American or Western society. In some jungle right now, yes right now, there is group of indigenous people living butt naked. I don't think they're walking around thinking, "wow I'm naked." Also I don't think they find the image of naked women something to go crazy over. Nudity to them is natural and normal, not extraordinary.

The fact of the matter is she posed nude for the picture. It matters not that someone else posted the pictures. Who is to say she didn't post them herself. She deserves whatever fallout comes her way. Disney should set an example for kids and hold their actors and actress to high standards. Remember Lindsay Lohan and Brittney Spears started out Disney. Just think of what they could be today if someone had held them accountable for their actions at a young age. Americans need to demand morals and stick to them --not lower the standard if the money is right. Gabriella can be replaced and noone would care, Soap Operas have done it for years and people still watch.

I believe that Vanessa Williams got her start this way as well . . . except the pictures were printed in Penthouse magazine. She has recovered nicely.

This is the age of Viral marketing.'Leaked' albums found on flash drives, websites that link to 'secret' details on an upcoming TV show..'stolen videos' of celebs having sex....the list goes on. we're talking about entertainers.

Vanessa will become an even bigger celeb because of this and in a couple of years when she's driving her new Benz off the lot before Paris gets hers, she'll be thankful.
