Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Bobby Brown had a brief stay at the blackjack table following Whitney Houston's funeral, Reese Witherspoon remains a charmer, and Oliver Stone's son converts to Islam.
Lindsay Lohan is hosting Saturday Night Live on March 3. Really, it's true. Apparently she got the gig without the help of her mother, Dina, who a source says had "nothing to do" with booking the appearance, even though the scuttlebutt is she's still (mis)managing her daughter's career. Per the source, Lohan landed the gig all by herself, via a direct appeal to SNL impresario Lorne Michaels "whom she reportedly sees as a father figure." Awwww. [Gatecrasher]
Oh, dear: a bodyguard who was travelling with White House party crasher Michaele Salahi and Journey's Neal Schon was arrested at LaGuardia Airport for carrying a gun and charged with possession of weapon in the third degree. The gun was found in luggage labeled as belonging to Salahi, according to a Port Authority spokesman, but that was apparently just a mix-up. [New York Daily News]
Oliver Stone's son Sean -- director of the yet-to-be-released horror film Graystone -- only converted to Islam last week in Iran. but tells Page Six he's "already experienced the reverse of anti-Semitism, having people within the film industry express a reluctance to work with me now." He also confidently predicts he's "[bleeped] off a lot of people in this town," though he says all he wants to do is "open up a dialogue about religion." He adds that he considers himself "a Jewish Christian Muslim." [Page Six]
