Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Gerard Butler hits the town, Prince Harry helped an injured polo player in Brazil Sunday, and Steve Wynn is not considered an ideal neighbor in fancy Manhattan co-ops.
Oh dear: the freshly rehabbed Gerard Butler was spotted out and about in West Hollywood on Friday night "slurring his words" and "sweating profusely." He was also apparently holding "a glass of clear liquid," which could be anything. Butler's rep is denying the suggestion he relapsed. [New York Daily News]
In other Gerard Butler news: he's being blamed for breaking up the marriage of a "wannabe actress/model" earlier this year. You know things are bad when the wannabe actress/model-types start coming out of the woodwork. [Radar]
Prince Harry's ten-day, four-country jaunt through South and Central America is over, and the consensus is he did very well. If there was a low point, it probably came Sunday during the Sentebale Polo Cup in Campinas, Brazil, when Bash Kazi, a 40-something "Georgetown socialite" who paid $50,000 to play against the prince in the charity match, was briefly knocked unconscious after falling off his horse. Harry, to his credit, immediately rushed to Kazi's side and according to a witness began massaging Kazi's neck, which medically-speaking might not have been the best approach. Kazi was briefly carted away by an ambulance, but returned to give Harry a hug at the conclusion of the match. [The Reliable Source]
It seems casino magnate Steve Wynn is interested in buying the $36 million Upper East Side duplex that belonged to the late Ted Forstmann, but sources says some co-op residents are concerned about "reprisals" stemming from Wynn's messy fight with Kazuo Okada, the "Japanese pachinko and slot machine mogul" who was recently kicked off the Wynn Resorts board. In defense of the co-op members, trouble has a way of very nearly missing those close to Steve Wynn, but at least he's aware of it: that's why he's reportedly added some former Navy SEALs to his private security team. So let Steve Wynn into your fancy building! [Page Six]
Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton are said to have "bonded over a private dinner at the actress’ TriBeCa apartment" following their joint appearance at the Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center on Saturday night. [Page Six]
CNN has reportedly lifted Roland Martin's month-long suspension. Back in February, the network said Martin was being suspended "for the time being" after a tweet he insisted was just anti-soccer, but GLAAD felt was "gay-bashing." [Fishbowl DC]
