Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Anna Wintour's memoir sparks chatter, Will and Kate fly commercial, and Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin go south to celebrate their anniversary.
- The "chatter among fashionistas" is that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is writing a memoir, with Vogue fashion news director Mark Holgate mentioned as a possible collaborator. The magazine says there's no truth to the rumors, but insiders are already "speculating about who would have the coveted honor of writing the book's foreword." [Page Six]
- Former Rep. Anthony Weiner and wife Huma Abedin "looked very much in love" celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary this weekend Miami. Following dinner out Saturday with friends, the couple peeled off for "a late-night stroll down Ocean Avenue." [Page Six]
- NBC has reportedly scrapped plans to name Chris Hansen lead anchor of Dateline in the wake of allegations that the married To Catch a Predator host has been carrying on with a Florida TV reporter. According to a source, "Hansen was to be announced as a lead anchor now that has the job on 'Today.' While NBC is publicly playing down the scandal, it's thrown their plans into disarray. Kate Snow may now have to get the job, but she's been on the show only a year." [Page Six]

- And finally: this year's Gathering of the Juggalos--the annual pilgrimmage of Insane Clown Posse fans that was famously documented last year in the Village Voice--won't feature a larger security presence, despite last year's violence. According to band member Violent J, the band has "only booked a small group of private security guards to work the event" and won't be bringing in local police to work the event next month in Illinois.
