Remember when those grainy nude pictures of that B-list actress and former tweener baring everything (and I do mean everything) were somehow leaked and her career almost was derailed?
It was never specified who those pics were for when they were first “leaked”.
Well, first of all she was very underage and the pics were taken two years before she the role in that Disney TV movie which made her a star and launched a million dollar franchise. The pics were for a series pilot that was to be produced by that now disgraced tweener show producer on a rival tweener network… or so he told her.
There were far more explicit photos that she sent to the producer, and he sent them on over to that now disgraced mogul who you all know in case the mogul wanted to use her in the future for his harem of starlets.
Fast forward to 2006-early 2007 when the sequel to that TV movie was about to go into production.
Our actress is now a star, and in a successful bearding relationship with a male costar bringing in more cash.
Her agent gets a call from the mogul who wants to meet up with the actress for a possible movie role (you can see where this is going) but the best friend/frequent costar of the actress tells her not to go as well as her agent.
When the mogul hears about this, he flies into a rage and calls the tweener show producer to get those photos, or at least one photo.
The person they employ to leak the photos was this then new gossip blogger who was very hesitant about accepting their offer, but he was looking for some traffic to his site.
So gets paid to “leak” the said photo which goes viral and engrosses the actress and the blogger in a feud which lasts for years (they are on better terms now because he told her he was forced to post the pics).
Meanwhile, the actress gets called to the carpet by the director of the TV movie and the CEO of the company which owns said cable network.
They are worried that this may taint their newest franchise and they threaten to replace her with another tweener who would later become a successful adult singer if she doesn’t issue a statement.
She issues an apology, says her computer was hacked, cease and desists are sent, etc etc.
She stays with the franchise for the next two installments, but her chance at A-list stardom was gone.
Whether or not she’ll go public with the truth about these photos will remain to be seen.
She’s probably been paid off not to talk.
