Is Ashley betraying best friend Vanessa Hudgens by cozying up to her ex?

Vanessa Hudgens may have felt, well, sucker-punched by recent photos of her ex-boyfriend, Zac Efron, with his arm wrapped her best friend, Ashley Tisdale. Is Ashley’s act of affection a betrayal or is she allowed to hang out with Zac? What are the rules?

Zac stopped by the launch of Ashley’s DVD Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure on April 6; the two, along with Vanessa met on the set of High School Musical years ago. Meaning: Ashley has been friends with Zac just as long as she’s known Vanessa. However, ZE went the extra mile by putting his arm around Ash and hugging her in a way that could be construed as a bad thing.

Would I be furious if I were Vanessa? Maybe. Although I certainly can’t tell Vanessa how she should feel, the rational part of her needs to realize that Ashley is Zac’s friend, too and that her pal isn’t going after her old flame (Ashley has been dating music video director Scott Speer for ages). V & Z ended their relationship amicably, as friends. They still hang out. Vanessa technically shouldn’t get angry at her pal for doing the same thing.

But is cozying up to your BFF’s ex a no-go? Kind of. If things between them ended badly, she’s going to feel that your friendship with him is a betrayal of your friendship with her — and girls should always have each other’s backs in times of need (but rarely do).

This is not to say that you should be rude to the ex, especially if he’s your friend as well, but don’t be as full-on with him as you usually would for a little while, at least. You don’t want to ruin your relationship with your bestie, so just be careful. Jealousy can create monsters and ruin friendships.

That scenario often happens. Maybe for some this is a friends teritorial dispute, but if both parties doesn´t have feeling for each other anymore like Zac and Vanessa, ao there´s nothing wrong if Zac turns to Ashley, isn´t it? That happened to Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox, and many more, but most of them remain friends. And this is not new, if you will observe Ashley bodylanguage during their Disney years, you can see she has a thing for Zac. It only happens she was not chosen first. But for me I will say go for it Ashley but be honest to your friend Vanessa, I don´t think she´ll mind it at all. She´s having fun too nowadays.

I just wanted to say that Ashley and Zac has known each other way before HSM so they’ve been friends even before they knew Vanessa. So I think it’s ok that they’re friends even though Vanessa and Zac are no longer together.
