This weekend Sunday Night has Rebal Wilson.
Rebel with a Cause
We know she’s funny, but there is so much more to Australian actress Rebel Wilson than the characters she plays. In a few weeks’ time, Rebel makes a triumphant return to the big screen with the latest instalment of her hit movie franchise, Pitch Perfect. But it’s been a challenging few years for Rebel, whose career was dealt a savage blow just as it was taking off after a spiteful campaign by some of Australia’s biggest women’s magazines. With movie offers drying up, Rebel took the tabloids to court and won a multi-million-dollar defamation suit. Although the vicious court battle was settled in her favour, Rebel wants to speak for the first time about how devastating it was. And as Sunday Night’s Melissa Doyle discovers on set with Rebel in Spain, her fight is far from over.
Face of Evil
He was the wild-eyed leader of a murderous cult that went on a deadly rampage at the height of the 60s. But this week, at the age of 83, Charles Manson died peacefully in hospital. And it’s only now his former lover, Diane Lake, feels she can reveal what life was really like living with one of the 20th century’s most notorious killers.
Sunday at 7.00 on Seven.
