Welcome to the Smart Set: Every morning, we bring you the gossip coverage filtered. Today: Rihanna reportedly visited Ashton Kutcher's house in the middle of the night, President Obama continued to celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the White House last night, and Brett Ratner is in talks to ruin Midnight Run.
It turns out the "undisclosed" place where Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is getting "much needed rest and recuperation" is in fact a rehab clinic, contrary to what his rep insisted earlier in the week. For shame, Mike Sorrentino's rep. In a post on his Facebook page, Sorrentino says he had "voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion" and "spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating." Meanwhile, Page Six hears Sorrentino has "dabbled in prescription drugs since becoming a star." A what? [Page Six]
Something might be going on with Ashton Kutcher and Rihanna. A photographer snapped pictures of her showing up at his house last night just after midnight, and tells TMZ that she didn't leave until around 4 a.m. So what were they doing? Shooting hoops probably. As you would expect, the visit isn't playing well with Rihanna's abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. After the news broke, Brown tweeted "Eternity's Gate," a somewhat obvious, Chris Brown-esque attempt to liken himself to the guy in a van Gogh painting, who also felt sad once. Layered metaphor you got there, Chris. [TMZ]
