Greg Gianforte Wins Election Apologizes For Body Slam

5/25/2017 10:35 PM PDT

Greg Gianforte won Montana's special election Thursday night and apologized for allegedly body slamming a reporter.

Gianforte, who received 50.4% of the state's votes, took the stage after his victory, saying, "When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it, that's the Montana way. Last night I made a mistake and I took an action that I can't take back and I'm not proud of what happened. I should not have responded in the way that I did, and for that I am sorry."

Gianforte came under heavy fire Wednesday after audio surfaced of the Republican candidate allegedly body slamming a reporter from The Guardian after he was asked a question about health care.

The victory speech marked Greg's first public comments since the incident ... 70% of the state's votes had been counted prior to the incident.

Democratic candidate Rob Quist received 43.8% of votes and Libertarian candidate Mark Wicks had 5.8%. 

Mark Zuckerberg Finally Gets Harvard Degree ... James Earl Jones, Too!

5/25/2017 5:07 PM PDT

Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook and made billions upon billions, but he never did get a degree from Harvard ... until now.

Mark was presented with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree Thursday at what would've been his alma mater if he hadn't dropped out to chase his FB dream back in 2004. He also delivered the commencement speech to this year's graduating class.

Zuck joked, "If I get through this speech today, it will be the first time I actually finish something at Harvard." 

BTW ... James Earl Jones also got an honorary degree for his decorated acting career. Here's how we imagine, in the perfect galaxy (far, far away), his speech would've gone:

"Mark, I am your Doctor ... of Arts."

Rosario Dawson was hysterical when she called 911 after finding her cousin lying unresponsive on the floor.

The 911 call 2 weeks ago is gut-wrenching. Rosario screams, "Oh my God" as the dispatcher tries to assess the clearly dire nature of the situation at the house in Venice, CA. 

It appears Rosario tried to resuscitate her 26-year-old cousin, Vaneza Ines Vasquez, and the paramedics transported her to the hospital ... to no avail.

As we reported ... Vaneza had been suffering from migraines and hypertension.  

Cause of death has not been determined pending toxicology results.

1:57 PM PT -- Turns out Scott's new brunette isn't such a mystery after all -- she's celeb stylist Chloe Bartoli and the two have a history together -- including a 2015 hookup in Monte Carlo.Scott Disick is clearly a new day/new girl enthusiast -- much to the chagrin of Bella Thorne.

Scott was hanging in his Cannes villa Thursday with an undeniably hot mystery brunette. It's unclear, but we're guessing he didn't fly to Cannes for the films.

It's interesting ... Scott was super handsy with Bella earlier this week in almost the exact same spot.

What's unclear ... did the Lord follow Kourtney Kardashian to Cannes to make her jealous or is it just the place to been seen ... and bang chicks?

Greg Gianforte Sheriff Cops to Backing Him ... Politically, At Least

5/25/2017 1:27 PM PDT

The cop who cited Greg Gianforte for allegedly body slamming a reporter ... has also supported the candidate's run for Congress.

Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin admitted making a donation to Gianforte's campaign during a Thursday news conference. The Sheriff also said he's interacted with Gianforte socially, however he insisted it would not be relevant to how his department handled the case.

As we reported, Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault after reporter Ben Jacobs accused him of the Wednesday body slam. Gianforte's gone radio silent, but through a rep he's put the blame on Jacobs.

Gootkin's news conference came smack dab in the middle of election day. Polls close at 8 PM in Montana.

Bear Attack Hunter Goes Down But Survives!

5/25/2017 12:52 PM PDT
You Gotta See This!

Vicious bear attacks are rarely caught on video like this, and what's also very rare is ... the victim managing to walk away in one piece.

A hunter in Ontario says he was out on a Spring hunt recently -- and you gotta see what happened when he stumbled within a few dozen yards of a pretty big black bear.

After a tense standoff the animal charged right at the hunter, and there's a moment where you're sure the guy's gotta be dead!

We're guessing he needed fresh underwear, but apparently that was it.

As they say: Any bear attack you can walk away from ...

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Cornell had apparently taken more than Ativan before hanging himself, because we've learned he had fresh track marks on his arm when his body was discovered in a Detroit hotel room.

Sources connected to the investigation tell us ... the track marks were "obvious." The singer had a history of using drugs. The toxicology tests will reveal what drugs were found in Chris' system.

The new information is consistent with our story that Ted Keedick, Chris' longtime house engineer and tour manager, said Chris seemed "high" and "f***ed up" during the concert ... hours before his death.

Chris' wife has said her husband had told her he took "an extra Ativan or two."

Taraji P. Henson Maserati Massacre on Movie Set

5/25/2017 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taraji P. Henson crashed a Maserati into a fire hydrant ... and the hydrant won.

Taraji was in Lawrence, Massachusetts Sunday on the set of her movie, "Proud Mary" ... shooting a scene where she was behind the wheel of the super expensive sports car. She had done 4 takes without incident, but on the fifth she cut the wheel too hard and slammed into the hydrant.

The "Empire" star was not hurt, but the Maserati was definitely the worse for wear. The hydrant had just gotten a fresh coat of paint so that's down the drain, but otherwise the car suffered way more damage.

Sounds like it was definitely an action shot ... they had been filming an explosion scene the entire day.

One production source said she wasn't the best driver. The good news ... we hear the movie is awesome.

As for the damage, a Maserati expert tells us it'll cost around $12k for proud Mary to keep on rollin'.

Manchester Bombing Memorial Crowd Sings Along ... 'Don't Look Back in Anger'

5/25/2017 9:58 AM PDT

Manchester's most famous rock band inspired a woman to break out in song at a memorial for the bombing victims ... and everyone around her quickly joined her.

The crowd had gathered in Manchester's St. Ann's Square for a moment of silence when the woman, Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow, began singing Oasis' 1995 hit "Don't Look Back in Anger." 

Another person encouraged the crowd and the sing-along picked up steam. Definitely a gives-you-chills kinda moment.

Lydia told a reporter the lyrics are what the city's all about -- "We can’t be looking backwards to what happened, we have to look forwards to the future ... We’re all gonna get on with it, because that’s what Manchester does."

Kourtney Kardashian Move Aside, Kim ... I'm Ms. New Booty!!!

5/25/2017 9:37 AM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian's dishing up something new in Cannes, and all we can say is ... Younes Bendjima is really bringing out her best.

Kourtney threw on a pink bikini for another yacht excursion Thursday in France with her bf. He's nearby, but we figured you didn't need to see him ... not while Kourt's showing off way more ass than she usually does. Her G-string is fighting a losing battle.

Pink seems to be Kourtney's fave color the last couple days, but that fantasstic two-piece is next level.

Your move, Kim.
