Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa

Here’s a tip for any young woman no matter if you are a celebrity or not: Please don’t flash the privates.

It’s bad enough when you decided to bare the bod for passing motorists on a whim, or go a little wacky on spring break, but when you take an actual photo of yourself standing in the all together, someone’s going to post it on the Internet.

And if you’re a celebrity, you can’t even trust your best pals.

But I applaud “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens, because she didn’t lie about what she did. She owned up to her mistake, and we hope that counts for something when those holding the keys to the Mouse Kingdom decide if they still want to be in business with her.

In a statement to “Extra,” Vanessa says, “I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me. I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends.”

Give her break. And to think, she was so happy at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards with her boyfriend on screen and in real life, Zac Efron. The phone-a-photo, we assume, was supposed to go for his eyes only:

Fred Thompson, President?

As I speculated last week in my newspaper column, now that “Law & Order” is out of reruns, Fred Thompson has decided to declare himself a candidate for President of the United States.

That Fred. He’s a hoot.

How Was Your Summer?

I’ll admit, this wasn’t the best summer for me. Right now, under the current regime, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to write about TV, or if I’ll get to keep the column I’ve had for more than 14 years.

Boo-hoo, right? I mean, how many people get to say they watched TV for a living for more than a decade?

So it’s time to put the big girl panties on, and what better way to get through a difficult summer than to find out that maybe your pals at “The Office” had an even worst time.

Check it out:

We can hardly wait for the fall season to start. And who knows? If Ryan can become the boss, maybe I can too…
