zac efron accused of stealing show!

Zac Efron has become something of an honorary Aussie living Down Under over the past 12 months. He even shifted production of Season Two of his docuseries, Down to Earth with Zac Efron, here. However, the Hollywood star has now been accused of stealing the idea for the popular Netflix series! Australian model and filmmaker Ben Waddell has come forward claiming he previously pitched an eco-travel show concept that is an exact copy of Zac’s show. In 2017 he shot a pilot called Down to Earth with Ben Waddell at an eco-retreat in Mexico, which he says he shopped around to various US production studios. Ben says he was in talks with Network 10 to film a local version, but that those discussions ceased when Ben saw Zac’s show on the streaming platform. “I…

too different to make it work

›Studio 10’s Sarah Harris has shocked fans by announcing she is “taking time apart” from husband, Tom Ward. The duo have noticeably not cosied up for a public family snap in over a year, sparking rumours the pair may have succumbed to the stress of the past 12 months. Sources close to Sarah tell New Idea that while the couple “always want what is best” for their two sons, Paul, 5, and Harry, 3, their relationship has fizzled in recent times. “Sarah and Tom are just very different people,” explains the source, who notes that their upbringings and careers are worlds apart. “Unfortunately, she was always trying to fit into his wealthy family and it proved to be too difficult of a dynamic for her,” the insider adds. According to sources, Sarah’s booming…

jen & justin honeymoon death case dismissed!

The long-running legal case involving a tragic death that occurred during Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s honeymoon finally appears to be over. Movie mogul Joel Silver – a close friend of the former Hollywood couple – was sued by the family of his personal assistant, Carmel Musgrove, who was found drowned in a private lagoon at an exclusive French Polynesian resort in Bora Bora back in August 2015. The 28-year-old had travelled there to work for Matrix producer, Silver, during Jen and Justin’s honeymoon celebration. But last week, legal documents seen by New Idea show a judge ruled in favour of a motion for summary judgement, presented by Silver’s lawyers. It prevents claims against Silver brought by Carmel’s parents, Ronnie and Ann Musgrove, from being taken to trial at the Los Angeles Superior Court. It…

She got her dream wedding in Hawaii!” “Secretly marrying during their getaway was a no-brainer,” says another friend. “They both desperately wanted a blowout wedding,…
