Can an unemployed news executive start life over with a fading Hollywood star? If this NY Daily News report is accurate, coverage of Eason Jordan will move from the blogs to the National Enquirer:
Former CNN exec Eason Jordan - who abruptly resigned amid a storm of controversy over his claim that U.S. soldiers had allegedly targeted journalists in Iraq - has a new bombshell. A blond one.
Word is that Jordan is dating Sharon Stone.
I'm told that the 46-year-old movie siren hooked up with the 44-year-old news executive during the World Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland.
The night after Jordan made his career-damaging remarks during a Jan. 27 panel discussion (he has since backed off, telling CNN staffers he does not believe troops acted with "ill intent"), the two were seated next to each other at an intimate, star-studded dinner at the posh Hotel Derby. The 50-guest dinner was graced by Angelina Jolie and hosted by CNN founder Ted Turner, with Columbia University Economics Professor Jeffrey Sachs.
Apparently sparks flew between Jordan and Stone, because the following week, I'm told, a lovestruck Jordan was excitedly referring to the actress as "my girlfriend."
Said a Lowdown spy: "He was psyched!"
I wonder if he knows he resigned? And hey - maybe the cable network E! could use a guy with Jordan's credentials?
