Teen queens, Brenda Song and Vanessa Hudgens have been recently fighting physically over several film roles. The ''New York Times'' recently reported that Vanessa's lifelong ambition is to play the Marie, the female lead character in the West Side Story.
While Brenda recently landed the lead female role in a new futuristic West Side Story remake called ''Boogie Town'', but Vanessa has been rooting the directors and producers of the film to get the female lead role. She was eventually turned down. This caused a lot of tension between Vanessa and Brenda.
Vanessa said: "I have always been a huge fan of the West Side Story it is one of my favorite musicals. I really wanted to get the role in the new modern remake of the West Side Story. I was very interested in being cast in the film as the female lead but unfortunately things didn't work out. My former best friend, Brenda [Song] got the role so yeah.. whatever. I deserve the role, I have so much more potential and talent than Brenda and Boogie Town is meant for singers and dancers. The film is a dance flick and it is very edgy and series. I wanted the role to breakout of my goody-two-shoes image. Brenda lacks common knowledge in the musical circle, she has never done musicals and she isn't a dancer. The producers made a huge mistake by casting her in the film. I know that the film isn't a heavily promoted major film but it is a great opportunity for me.. I feel like the producers made a huge mistake."
A close friend to Brenda said "Brenda and Vanessa are not in speaking terms. They don't talk to each other at all these days. It is getting out of control.. Vanessa cussed at Brenda because she got the roles she wanted. Brenda got cast in Twilight's New Moon as Leah Clearwater which Vanessa really wanted too..
Adding, "So Vanessa got really angry at the everyone. She cussed at Brenda in a L.A. club then Brenda started trash talking Vanessa with Zac [Efron] and this made the problem even worse. Then Vanessa saw Brenda and Zac making out and called Brenda a ***** ho and slapped her in front of everyone at the club. This led to Brenda slapping her back."
