SHARON STONE IS BACK ON BUMBLE AFTER HER ACCOUNT WAS DISABLED

Anyone in the market for an accomplished blonde 61-year-old is in luck. After being booted from the dating app Bumble, the Golden Globe-winning Sharon Stone made her case on Twitter, assuring users that she is, in fact, looking for love online.

"I went on the @bumble dating site and they closed my account," Stone wrote Monday morning, in a tweet that has gone viral. "Some users reported that it couldn't possibly be me!"

Bumble was on it. The company tweeted: "Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. We've made sure that you won't be blocked again. We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles. (Catherine Tramell from Basic Instinct gets a pass today!)"

Bumble gained popularity for allowing women to message men first in straight relationships.

Clare O'Connor, the editorial director of Bumble, also commented on Stone's tweet, stating that she hopes Stone finds her "honey."

Fans seemed surprised that Stone was on Bumble, and lamented if she was, there's "no hope" for anyone else. She also, naturally, got several requests for dates.

Stone was married to Michael Greenberg for three years and then to Phil Bronstein for 10. Their marriage ended in 2004.

TANA MONGEAU ON WEDDING TO JAKE PAUL: Tana Mongeau married Jake Paul in July, and apparently, the YouTubers are having a rough go of it. In a YouTube video titled, "the truth about everything," she fesses up: "I am so unhappy with the way my relationship looks in the public eye, and I've done so much pretending I don't care when I do." She also said, "I did so much of being, like, the 'cool girl' and not 'caring,' because I wanted to do life with this person ... and I think I just put so much of myself into Jake that I lost myself." Many believed their wedding was a sham, and attempt to increase publicity for them both, but she denies, admitting though, that everything changed once they got married. She adds that while they're still together, their open relationship was "killing" her.

KEVIN HART’S WIFE OPENS UP ABOUT HIS CHEATING SCANDAL

Kevin Hart's wife Eniko Hart has opened up about his cheating scandal. In his new Netflix docu-series Don't F*ck This Up, Eniko revealed that she found out that her husband cheated while she was pregnant. She said, "How I found out was a DM. I don't know who it was. They sent me an edited video of Kevin and, you know, another woman. I was pregnant at that time, I was about seven or eight months pregnant. I was having breakfast, I opened my phone, and immediately I just lost it. I called him, I'm crying, I'm like pissed. Right then and there, I kept saying, ‘How the f*ck did you let that happen?'"

She continued, "You publicly humiliated me. Your whole, everything's on Instagram, everything's on social media. It was an ongoing fight all the time. Every single day. I kept questioning him, like, 'If this is what you're gonna do, I don't want to be a part of that.'"

On why she stayed, she said, "I kept worrying about the baby, I have to maintain a level head, I think that's the only thing that really got me through. I wasn't ready at the time to just give up on my family. I wanted Kenzo to be able to know his dad and grow up, so it was a lot."

ENIKO SAYS SHE'S KIND OF HAPPY THE INFIDELITY HAPPENED

Eniko also revealed that she is kind of happy that Kevin cheated. She explained, "It was a lot for me, but we've been through it, we've gone through it, we passed it and he's a better man now because of it. I'm happy that it kind of happened. I get sensitive every time I talk about it. Sorry."

She continued, "I believe in second chances. I'm all about forgiveness, and you only get two times. Three strikes you're out, you're out of here. So, as long as he behaves, we're good."

PAUL HAGGIS MUST FACE ‘HATE CRIME’ CLAIM IN RAPE SUIT

Paul Haggis' rape accuser scored a precedent-setting victory before a New York appeals court. As a result, Haleigh Breest will be able to claim that the Oscar-winner commited a gender-motivated hate crime under the Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Law (VGM), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

New York appellate judge Peter Moulton wrote in the majority: "Rape and sexual assault are, by definition, actions taken against the victim without the victim's consent. Without consent, sexual acts such as those alleged in the complaint are a violation of the victim's bodily autonomy and an expression of the perpetrator's contempt for that autonomy. Coerced sexual activity is dehumanizing and fear-inducing. Malice or ill will based on gender is apparent from the alleged commission of the act itself. Animus inheres where consent is absent."

This is her second major legal victory. Last year, New York Supreme Court Judge Robert Reed ruled that she could move forward with her suit against the director, despite questions about the timeliness of her suit.

Breest says Haggis raped her in his apartment in January 2013 after the premiere of Side Effects. The trial begins in February.

FANS RESPONDS TO KYLIE JENNER’S DECISION TO PROMOTE EX’S ALBUM, GIFTING BABY DIAMOND

Kylie Jenner is keeping fans on their toes once again by promoting Travis Scott's new album JACKBOYS. She hit up the 'Gram with a screenshot of Scott's new album, and captioned it "STORMI'S DAD" in all caps, just so everyone was reminded that yes he's her ex, but they also share a child together.

Fans have been speculating for weeks that they're getting back together, citing multiple cozy looking sightings of them out and about.

PRESENTS

Meanwhile, Jenner is also raising eyebrows online with her decision to gift her 1-year-old a diamond ring for Christmas. She posted a video of Stormi wearing the bling in IG stories, and though it was deleted, The Shade Room grabbed footage. Yes, the comments are the exact combination of envy, horror and "go girl" you'd expect.

One person on Twitter wrote: "I know people work for their money, but that money could have gone to putting food in someone's body, paying for medical bills, or planting trees."

Wrote one supporter to the haters: "Go Stormi bling bling baby girl. I luv it....."

REPORT: KEVIN SPACEY’S LATE ACCUSER ARI BEHN BATTLED ALCOHOLISM

Danish author Ari Behn, a former member of Norway's royal family, has died by suicide. Behn was one of many who accused Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct, and years prior to dying, described his fear that he wouldn't see his children grow up, due to his battle with alcoholism.

In 2009, he said: "I work hard for lunch, and then I can take the first drink of the day at half past two. It is a bad habit I have admitted."

On social media, many reacted to Behn's with shock, pointing out that this is not the first accuser who has died. (An anonymous massage therapist died in September). It also comes after Spacey's Christmas video missive in which he went into character as his House of Cards character Frank Underwood, saying: "The next time someone does something you don't like, you can go on the attack. But you can also hold your fire and do the unexpected. You can ... kill them with kindness."

Corey Feldman, who has spoken out about his own sexual assault allegations, though not against Spacey, wrote: "LIKE...REALLY?!? 3RD ACCUSER DIES SUDDENLY? WHAT R THE CIRCUMSTANCES? DO WE KNOW IT WAS A REAL SUICIDE?? I MEAN IS ANYBODY INVESTIGATING THIS GUY 4 POTENTIAL ORCHESTRATION OF OR CONSPIRACY 2 MURDER, LIKE REALLY? I THINK ITS TIME A CASE IS OPENED!"

Behn is Princess Martha Louise's ex husband. They parted ways in 2017 and share three daughters. In 2017, he accused the 60-year-old Spacey of groping him under a table at a Nobel Peace Prize concert.

SOFIA RICHIE, SCOTT DISICK, OTHERS SLAMMED FOR PROMOTING SAUDI ARABIA FEST

Over the weekend, Scott Disick, Sofia Richie, Ryan Phillippe, Armie Hammer, Irina Shayk and others flew to Saudi Arabia for MDL Beast, described as "a three day festival bringing together the best in electronic music, performing arts and culinary craft—just outside of Riyadh."

"Made it to Saudi! Can't wait for tonight @mdlbeast," Richie captioned pics of herself posing inside The Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh. "Last night @mdlbeast festival. Thanks Saudi for a great trip, now home for the holidays," Disick said of a shot of him at the event.

But their social media posts on the festival prompted the wrong kind of buzz online. Many users called out the country's human rights record, and questioned why they would support MDL.

Instagram account Diet Prada slammed them for allegedly accepting money to promote the event, and, as it claimed, "to rehabilitate the image of Saudi Arabia."

It also highlighted complaints from social media users at the festival who complained about sexual harassment.

"Thank you @diet_prada for calling this out. I was Jamal Khashoggi's editor at Washington Post," Karen Attiah commented on the account's MDL Beast-focused post. Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul last year.

"Jamal believed in social media to be used for good. It's shameful that many of Saudi Arabia's own influencers and activists have been jailed under Mohammed bin Salman. Thank you for using this platform to call out the shamelessness. I'm disgusted."

In a note, Emily Ratajkowski spoke out as well, saying she opted to not attend because of the country's record. I have always wanted to visit Saudi Arabia, but when a recent opportunity came to me involving making and promoting an appearance there, I had to decline. It is very important to me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community, freedom of expression and the right to a free press. I hope coming forward on this brings more attention to the injustices happening there."

RICKY GERVAIS REACTS TO OUTCRY OVER TRANSPHOBIC TWEETS

Ricky Gervais posted multiple tweets that many deemed as transphobic ahead of his Golden Globes hosting gig. Fans weren't really here for it.

In apparent response to J.K. Rowling's support of a British researcher fired after expressing anti-trans sentiment, he wrote: "Those awful biological women can never understand what it must be like for you becoming a lovely lady so late in life. They take their girly privileges for granted. Winning at female sports and having their own toilets. Well, enough is enough."

When a follower asked him to be kind, he wrote: "Exactly. We need to protect the rights of women. Not erode them because some men have found a new cunning way to dominate and demonise an entire sex."

Later, he tried to pass the tweets off as jokes. One person responded: "I'm glad you find such levity in this. However transphobia does REAL harm to REAL kids. Perhaps consider that?"

He responded: "I do. I also make jokes about AIDS, Cancer, Famine and The Holocaust. Those things do a bit of harm too. But jokes don't. Have a nice day."

The debate between Gervais and fans raged all weekend, and then Gervais dove back in Monday.

Gervais tweeted: "It used to be considered reasonable to listen & try to understand both sides of an argument. But now, if opposing extremists are screaming at each other & you don't agree 100% with either, you're considered the enemy of both. It's why many people are afraid to contribute at all."
