Vanessa Hudgens‘ father passed away after a battling cancer for just a few months yesterday. The actress broke the news on Twitter this morning, “I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers.” Then she added, “Tonight, I do the show in his honor.” The show she is talking about is Grease: Live tonight at 7p on Fox.
I admire her courage for taking the stance, the show must go on. I don’t think I could do it.
But there is something about performing and the adrenaline taking over that makes even the impossible, possible.
So tonight I will have her in my thoughts and prayers as I watch her kill it as Rizzo.
Want to feel really old? High School Musical is turning 10 on Wednesday. That’s right, it has been a whole decade since we got to know East High’s most famous students. In honor of the milestone Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman, Corbin Bleu and Lucas Grabeel had a little reunion this weekend so that they could tape segments that will air during a special broadcast of the much loved musical on the Disney Channel at 8p. Zac Efron was not there, but don’t worry he recorded a personal message for you to see during the showing.
If I can stay up that late to watch it, I totally will. But 8p is past my bedtime. At least it will be after today because this news makes me feel older than dirt. Don’t you feel ancient?
BTW I am surprised that they didn’t do High School Musical 4: The 10 Year Reunion. Aren’t you?
Ashley Tisdale was on Conan O’Brien’s yesterday and she admitted to the TBS late night host that she has a girl crush on Jessica Lowndes. In fact, when she needed to cast someone to be her former girlfriend on the show she produces, she made sure to hire the star of A Deadly Adoption as her love interest on ABC Family’s Young & Hungry.
She then told Conan, “I got to kiss her, that was a lot of fun.” Then she added, “It was fun for my husband too!” I wonder who had the most fun when the two of them locked lips, Ashley or her husband? That night, I would say, it was easily a tie! Maybe a three way tie?

Good Morning America shared a photo of Vanessa Hudgens, who was on the show today to promote her Broadway show Gigi, and she looks cuter than cute. Seriously, she looks so sugary sweet, I just got a cavity looking at her. Doesn’t she remind you of one of those angelic Cherub dolls or pictures? What do you think she looks like in this picture?
