Many moons ago we reported right here that Forge owner Shareef Malnik may have been dating Sharon Stone. That story disappeared faster than Basic Instinct 2 did from the theaters--until now. Stone, who we saw last night at the opening of the Viceroy, is having lunch right now at Brosia with none other than Malnik, who was also there last night. We didn't catch the two canoodling or anything, but hmmm, could they be more than friends? We know Malnik likes brunettes, but Stone, we guess, is a hot exception.
