Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: The latest on RiChri is that they're pretty serious, Miss Pennsylvania keeps yapping, and Stacy and George enjoy Italy while you don't.
OK so the Rihanna/Chris news of the day is now that they're like thisclose to getting back together. He watched a basketball game with her family on Saturday and everything. So who knows. And who really knows how to talk about this? Obviously Chris Brown seems like a bad guy based on past things, but we also don't know him and Rihanna does, so if she wants to take him back, as weird as that might seem to us, that's also her prerogative, right? Like, people getting mad at Rihanna about this are sort of failing to realize that they are not her friend and do not know her or Chris Brown and really who are we to butt our noses in and say "Shame, shame." That's all. So it's awkward to talk about. Because yes Chris Brown did a terrible thing and we certainly don't want Rihanna taking him back, but it's also their beeswax. Let's remember whose beeswax this is. [Page Six]
Yikes. That embarrassing Miss Pennsylvania who doesn't like transgendered people ruining her very traditional, very important beauty pageant and who claims that the recent Miss USA pageant was rigged, had a text message thing surface where she basically says that Miss Colorado and Miss South Carolina were too ugly to get as far in the competish as they did. Oh brother. Honestly, lady. Being shocked over the questionable integrity of a beauty pageant is about as exciting as saying that the cable company might be charging you a little too much. We all know, it's a great national injustice, and there's nothing to be done about it. Stop whistle-blowing, Miss Pennsylvania. Nobody's listening. [TMZ]
