Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today:the Bidens hit Southampton, Edward Norton is (maybe) engaged, and Prince William remains Prince William
- While President Obama was at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns and looking very, very, hot, Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill spent Memorial Day weekend in the "sprawling Southampton estate" of "Internet pioneer and gay, bisexual and transgender-rights activist" David Bohnett. (Bohnett founded GeoCites and is a "large contributor" to Democratic causes.) Saturday, the couple reportedly lunched at 75 Main, where, according to one spy, "[Biden] had three secret service agents inside the restaurant, including one watching in the kitchen while the chefs made [his] chopped salad." After lunch, "a relaxed veep happily accompanied his wife as she browsed at [Southampton boutiques] Alice & Olivia and Calypso." Sunday, the vice president was spotted "on the beach," though doing what is unclear. [Page Six]
- Edward Norton's representatives aren't commenting on his relationship with Shauna Robertson, but the actor reportedly introduced the producer as his fiancee during a Memorial Day getaway to Cape Cod. Robertson has produced The 40-Year-old Virgin, Superbad, and Pineapple Express (among other titles) for Judd Apatow's Apatow Productions. [Page Six]
- Prince William is still going by Prince William, even though his grandmother conferred the Duke of Cambride title upon him on just before his marriage to Kate Middleton. As a result, Kate's official title will be Princess Catherine, a disappointment reportedly to the Countess of Wessex "[who] had wanted to be known as Princess Sophie, but had been forbidden by the Queen." [Vanity Fair]
- Warner Bros. TV has decided not to submit Two and a Half Men for best comedy consideration at this year's Emmy Awards. "Show insiders" cited the "circumstances" surrounding the CBS hit this past year, circumstances which presumably include star Charlie Sheen's highly-publicized departure from the show. While the show itself won't be in the running, Nikki Finke says Warner Bros. TV "is throwing its full support behind Sheen's co-stars on the show with ad campaigns planned for Jon Cryer, Holland Taylor, Angus T. Jones and Conchata Ferrell." [Deadline]
