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%. 

Bella Thorne Seeing Scott's Wild Side in Cannes ... Takes a Step Back

5/26/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bella Thorne's now met Scott Disick, the party monster up close and personal -- and it's a pass for her ... for now. 

Sources connected to their Cannes crew tell us Bella decided to back off the festivities, and away from Scott ... after witnessing how wild he got. We're told the heavy drinking was especially shocking to the 19-year-old.

When Scott invited Bella to Cannes ... we're told she insisted her older sister, Dani, come along too. But even with a chaperone, and several other friends, Bella reached her limit. She hinted at her frustration Thursday on Twitter.

Sources close to Bella's fam tell us her parents were worried anyway due to Scott's reputation and his age -- but they stayed out of it because she's an adult. 

When the trip started they seemed to enjoy each other's company -- but the next day Scott was getting handsy with an old flame

Of course, Bella's 19 ... so if the wind changes, her mind could too.

Helen Mirren America Leaks ... I Don't

5/26/2017 12:40 AM PDT

Helen Mirren acknowledges UK leaders are angry with the U.S. government for allegedly leaking details about the Manchester bombing, but beyond that ... Dame Helen's a tough nut to crack.

We got HM at LAX ... and talked to her about the new tension with her countrymen. British police are pissed bombing evidence they shared with American leaders ended up getting plastered all over U.S. media.

Helen splits her time in both countries, so we wondered where she stands on the feud.

We'll say this ... the Dame coulda been a 00 agent. 

'Alaskan Bush People' Star Help, My Fridge Exploded!! Head Stitches Needed

5/26/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


"Alaskan Bush People" star Matt Brown needed 9 staples in his head after an explosion in his fridge landed him in the hospital.

Our sources in Alaska tell us the accident happened Tuesday night in Matt's Hoonah, AK crib. Apparently, he'd filled a mason jar with gunpowder and cannon fuse, and stored it in his fridge. Doesn't seem like the smartest move, but if you haven't seen the show ... the Browns march to the beat of their own drum. 

Lo and behold ... the mason jar exploded, and blew the fridge door off its hinges, and into Matt's head.

He went to a hospital, got stapled back together and was released. Now, we know what you're thinking, and no ... this wasn't a stunt for the show. 'ABP' wasn't shooting at the time.

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:

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.

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?

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 ...
