While Miley Cyrus has openly revealed her regret over her racy pictures for Vanity Fair magazine June 2008 issue, the Disney Channel was quick to show some support for its sold-out starlet. The U.S. TV network which broadcasts Miley's series "Hannah Montana" said, "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines."

Miley is a popular Disney star with the hit "Hannah Montana" series and "Best of Both Worlds Concert," which became a top-selling live show, 3-D concert film and album. And just last week, Disney Book Group announced that the starlet has signed a seven-figure book deal to write a memoir about her journey to stardom. The book is scheduled to hit bookshelves spring next year to coincide with the premiere of the "Hannah Montana" feature movie, also titled "Hannah Montana."

About her provocative pics in Vanity Fair, People claimed that Miley's parents left before the final picture at the photo shoot, but her grandmother and teacher were there. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, even posed with his celebrity daughter for the magazine photo shoot. The father-daughter duo can be seen on video from the photo shoot, which will be posted on VF.com this week.

As for the controversy the pics have caused, a source said it left the starlet's parents and family disappointed. The source was quoted by People as saying, "Her parents were there all day. [Father] Billy Ray shot, too. Miley's grandmother and her teacher were there when she shot it. Annie convinced them it was going to be artistic. Her parents are mortified. They know this is a learning moment for Miley." The source, furthermore, revealed "The photo suggests that she is [naked], but she is not. She is covered by a sheet, and beneath the sheet she is clothed. Originally, she was in a flesh-colored tank top but was asked to remove it."

Vanity Fair magazine, which features Miley's racy pics, has its article being written by Bruce Handy. The publication will hit the newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 30 and nationwide May 6.
