Nothing feels as good as a hug! To celebrate the end of her BFF Gayle King's COVID-19 quarantine, Oprah Winfrey gave her a giant hug and shared it on her Instagram page. "We are here to welcome our guests, who have tested negative," Winfrey said, as she greeted King at the front door of her Santa Barbara home with her longtime partner Stedman Graham. "A Covid-free house," she says happily. Winfrey captioned the video, "After 13 and a half days quarantined in my guest house, @gayleking and her @cbsthismorning team released from Covid quarantine."

Courtney Stodden calls Brian Austin Green a "womanizer"
Just off his split from Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green is already finding himself in hot water with another woman. Shortly after the actor confirmed he and Fox were splitting after nearly 10 years, he was seen on a date with Courtney Stodden, who has now slammed the "Beverly Hills, 90210" star as a "womanizer." The drama started when the 46-year-old told TMZ that the 25-year-old is "super nice but disappointing," which he explained was because Stodden, famous for marrying Doug Hutchinson, 34 years her senior, at the age of 16, had released a video of her in a hot tub with Green. The father of four claims the video was a month old and Stodden only released it to "create problems" for him and model Tina Louise, who he was spotted on a date with the day before the video was released. "I had blocked him after several other women who he was playing came forward to me. I stand with them and I believe them," Stodden said in a statement to Fox News in response. "Brian wanted me to remain his little secret. [He's a] womanizer."

Cassie Randolph accuses ex Colton Underwood of monetizing their split
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph's split is getting messy. On Monday, July 6, Randolph appeared on "The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!" where she declined to share details with Chris Harrison about her breakup. Underwood, the former "Bachelor," wrote on Instagram about her interview, saying they had agreed to handle things privately during this time. "Obviously a lot changed this week," he wrote, shading his ex. Randolph has since replied to that comment on her Instagram stories, writing: "As some of you may know, I did a GOAT interview this week — I purposefully remained private and vague out of respect for Colton and our relationship," she explained. "I have no regrets, gained a great boyfriend and a healthy 1 1/2 year relationship, incredible and unique opportunities, and I platform that I intend to use for good. I want to show appreciation. I didn't see any harm in doing the interview, as I wasn't going to dish out details about our relationship to them." She continued on, addressing her 28-year-old ex directly. "On Monday evening, you informed me you intend to monetize our breakup by writing a new chapter to discuss your experience with COVID (where you stayed in my family's house during your recovery and about our breakup)," she explained. "You have also refused to give me any sort of approval on the chapter you will be writing, which will heavily feature me … This seems a bit unfair to me. Colton, you can do what you want, but please do not have a double standard." Randolph, whose claims have been denied by Underwood's rep, accused him of making her look like the "bad one." She concluded by writing, "I would also like to ask that you don't cloud our great, 1 1/2 year relationship with a messy breakup."
