Vanessa Hudgens Talks 'High School Musical' With Ashley Tisdale On E! Special 'Inner Circle' (VIDEO)

She may have had the fairytale high-school experience on Disney Channel, but Vanessa Hudgens didn't exactly love her real-life high-school experience.

While chatting with Ashley Tisdale in HuffPost TV's exclusive clip (above) from the E! special "Vanessa & Ashley: Inner Circle," airing on Thurs., August 8, Hudgens opened up about how much she disliked being home schooled.

"We like had our prom [on 'High School Musical'], but I didn't get to dress how I would actually dress -- I had to wear Gabriella's clothes," Hudgens, who was home-schooled, told Tisdale of her Disney Channel character.

"I look back fondly at the experience as a whole, like the way I would if I actually went to high school," she explained.
