Vanessa Williams Comments on Vanessa Hudgens Naked Pic Scandal

by at . Comments

Vanessa Hudgens might feel alone - and naked - these days, but a fellow actress with her own nude photo past says the High School Musical star will be okay.

"She's got talent and she's professional, and those are the things that'll help her survive in life," said Vanessa Williams at the ET/People magazine Emmy party on Sunday. "You know, welcome to the lesson of hard knocks. She got her first big one right now."

Remember, Williams started the beauty queen controversy long before anyone had heard of Tara Conner or Katie Rees.

She was pressured to give up her Miss America crown and at least $2 million worth of contracts after a series of naked images appeared in Penthouse, but Williams soon fought back, appearing on the cover of People and telling the world:

"I am not a lesbian and I am not a slut, and somehow I am going to make people believe me."

This became known as the anti-Tila Tequila platform.

"I met her and she's a very sweet talented girl and I've seen High School Musical 2 a zillion times because of my kids ... and she'll be fine," added the Ugly Betty actress and Chappaqua, New York resident.


i agree with dawn do you realy think she apologized from her heart .i mean im just stating my opinion as a citizen


Why can't everyone mind their own business!!!!! That's messed up ya tryin to mess up her rep.
She need her privacy and if he took those pic, it wasn't ment for public eyes it was private.
I hope she gets over it and keeps doin what she does best act and sing, my daughters love her.
All you people that aint got nothin better to say or do but mess up other people life and carrer need to look at their own.


I think everyone should touch their damn nose, if she did It she did it in her time of day.
I don't think anyone had the rights to steal or take her personal belongings, know matter how u got it. She is really talented and my daughter love s her, its not like she did it on tv.
But their are dume people who wants to ruin other peoples life, Vanessa Hudgens keep ur head up high and we are here for u.


i cnt believe she did tht im a big fan


i agree with vanessa williams b/c she did take them and yes it wasnt something good to do but no one is perfect (as hannah montanna says) and she deserves a break and everytime i hear it on tv or read it again i doubt i will read that magazine company for about a year i might even start a boycott so everybody who keeps putting this back in the spot light needs to chut there fat mouths!!! and she deserves the part in hms3 b/c adriana doesnt she is a cheetah girl not a gabriella and i wont watch it if its her!!!


I do not understand why the media need to keep harassing this poor girl. Yes...she took the pictures but she did it in her personal and private life. She did not pose for playboy or any adult magazines. She owned up to it....she did not try and deny that those were not her pictures and yet....the media seem to try to paint her as a bad immoral person. What I do not understand is why try and harass her like that and keep on capitalizing on her disgrace......everyone makes mistakes and not everyone owns up to their least she did.
