Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens want to be like David and Victoria Beckham.

Efron says he “loves” the soccer star’s fashion sense – and finds it funny when he and girlfriend Hudgens are compared to David and Victoria.

He says, “Vanessa and I would love to be like the US David and Victoria Beckham. It’s funny when we’re compared to them, I just can’t believe it. I totally love the way David dresses.”

That settles it, Chace Crawford should handle Footloose, Zac needs to come out of the closet before he is given any other big name productions.

On Tuesday, North Korea announced that it would try American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling – Lisa Ling’s sister – for “hostile acts” and illegally entering the country.

The official Korean Central News Agency said, “The illegal entry of US reporters into the DPRK (North Korea) and their suspected hostile acts have been confirmed by evidence and their statements.”

The agency also said that the pair, who work for California-based Current TV, will be granted consular access and will be tried according to international law. The agency did not, however, specify their “hostile acts,” although South Korean reports are saying they could be tried for spying.

The situation also tries relations with North Korea, which is planning to launch a communications satellite that the US believes is just a cover for long-range missile testing.

CBS may soon decide to pull the plug on “Guiding Light,” the longest-running daytime drama in television history.

While no final decision has been made, the network’s deal for the Procter & Gamble-produced drama-the least watched of the eight daytime serials currently on the air-ends in September. But if CBS does drop “Guiding Light,” it likely would lock in a decision within the next month, people familiar with the matter said. That would give writers a chance to tie up storylines.

CBS also would need to finalize new programming for the daytime hour that “Guiding Light” would be vacating.

Although she’s previously been quoted saying that she wouldn’t mind giving her daughter Nahla a sibling, she told Jay, “My mind wants another child, but my body is saying something else.”

One thing is for sure. She has absolutely no plans to wed her baby daddy and beau Gabriel Aubry. After giving the host a definitive “no,” she added: “The answer to that is never going to change.”

  1. It’s just as well Miley is giving up on Hannah Montana. The kid grew into her teeth all funny and now I just can’t take her seriously.
