Following his instant-classic "You Lie!" outburst last night, U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson has sparked widespread discussion and even inspired a website in his (dis)honor.

The South Carolina Republican is the subject of a new site called Joe Wilson is Your Pre-Existing Condition, a reference to the controversial health care issue.

It was President Barack Obama's health care speech that caused Wilson to heckle him last night, shouting at him and earning headlines and criticism.

With the tagline "You dissed America; we'll dis you right the f**k back," the new site takes funny shots at the Congressman with each click of the mouse.

Some of them are just amusing, sort of like reverse "Chuck Norris facts." Joe Wilson is totally "that guy" we all hate. For example, the site claims that:

  • Joe Wilson hit on your mom
  • Joe Wilson stole your newspaper
  • Joe Wilson yells 'Free Bird' at concerts
  • Joe Wilson didn't refill your Brita pitcher
  • Joe Wilson farted during your wedding vows
  • Joe Wilson talks on his Blackberry during your favorite movie
  • Joe Wilson swapped the dead batteries in his Walkman for the fresh ones in your TV remote

Yep. Joe Wilson is totally that guy.

Some of the Joe Wilson "facts" directly address the health care crisis and his rude outburst, however. A few examples of more serious criticism ...

  • Joe Wilson yells while adults are talking
  • Joe Wilson claims your sick child is faking
  • Joe Wilson thinks you are too stupid to actually read the bill
  • Joe Wilson canceled your insurance for buying off-brand insoles
  • Joe Wilson doesn't respect the constitution of the United States
  • Joe Wilson distracted you from one of the most important speeches by an American President in the last 20 years

What do you think? Was Joe Wilson right to speak his mind or out of line to heckle the Prez during his speech? Whose side are you on?

Reality star Tila Tequila said (via her Twitter page of course) that she will meet with the San Diego County District Attorney's office on Friday.

The D.A. is reviewing reports regarding the assault she alleges was committed against her by Shawne Merriman, her NFL star boyfriend, early Sunday.

Tila Tequila accuses the Chargers linebacker of choking and throwing her to the ground while she was trying to leave his suburban San Diego home.

She signed a citizen's arrest warrant accusing Merriman of battery and false imprisonment, both felonies, and was hospitalized. No charges were filed.

Shawne Merriman says he was protecting Tequila, who he says was drinking and intended to drive home. "I was concerned about her welfare," he said.

Merriman also that he wants to clear "his name" and "put this behind me so I can continue to focus on a successful season for the San Diego Chargers."

A Shot at Tequila

Tila Tequila and Shawne Merriman offer differing accounts.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, has denied Merriman's claims that she was drunk at the time, even claiming she is "allergic to alcohol."

The Tweets from Tequila's account this morning said "I will never be a VICTIM of anything. So when someone lays a hand on me then lies. Its on."

She followed that up with more than 30 updates in the next hour, including accusing Merriman of lying in his statements to the media about her.

"Damage control. Blame Tila. Make her look bad. Send it out to the media so they don't [sic] believe her! Quick! Cover it up!," Tila Tequila Twittered.

A San Diego County spokesman said the DA's office can reject the accusations, or refer them to the San Diego City Attorney's Office for consideration.

Whose side are you on?

We were just thinking about how Lindsay Lohan had not taken to her beloved Twitter account to unleash an unnecessarily public rant in what feels like days.

Before, it was the seedy peeps who ransacked her home who bore the brunt of the waif's Tweeting tirade. She knows who you are guys (only she doesn't)!

This time, it's on-off-on-off-on-off lover Samantha Ronson who finds herself in the crosshairs. Not that anyone knows what the hell Lindsay is talking about.

According to Twitter, the rant began around 7:30 a.m. EST, or 4:30 a.m. PST, probably before Lindsay even went to bed. Heck, she's probably still up now.

  • Manly DJ

FIRE(D UP) CROTCH: Something really made Lindsay Lohan fly off the handle this morning. We don't know for sure what, but she sure is pissed @samantharonson.

Regardless, the actress and "fashion ambassador" really needs a lesson in spelling, as well as some protein and probably a whole team of psychologists.

All of the above might help stave off meltdowns such as this.

So here's Lindsay Lohan going all Miley Cyrus (albeit less coherently), spilling her guts like a madman on Twitter, as if anyone gives a rat's a$$.

You have to read from the bottom up, given the 140-character limit. Not that this will likely help you garner any clue as to what she's saying ...

Lohan Twit

This concludes Thursday morning's stimulating look inside the mind of the great Lindsay Lohan. Suffice it to say, it's not a pretty scene in there.

A rumor that actor Matt Damon is dead after reportedly being found in the desert over the web last night, but fortunately (and not surprisingly) it is false.

Some of the Matt Damon is dead rumors state TMZ as reporting the death. Not only is the rumor false, the attribution of the story to TMZ is also false.

A Bourne Leader?

The Academy Award-winning actor is not dead, but is in Venice, attending the Venice Film Festival and giving interviews about his new film, The Informant.

Yet somehow, by last night, Matt Damon was dead, at least according to publications who think it's the height of comedy to get people riled up like this.

No need to say goodbye to Matt Damon. He's not dead!

According to one incarnation of the rumor (via Bollywood 91), Matt Damon wrote on his blog that he was going to the desert to search for gold and adventure.

The rumor is fairly detailed in its construction, noting that Damon realizes what he's doing is dangerous. Add in a bogus TMZ sourcing and voila, death rumor.

Also disturbingly and randomly, albeit less detailed, is the supposed death of Dancing with the Stars winner and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson last night.

She's fine too. Glad you are still with us, Shawn!

Starting tonight, Perez Hilton will take a brief break from drawing semen on celebrity photos and officially begin his side career as a music mogul.

How we wish we were kidding.

Rolling Stone, as if it had not jumped the shark long ago, is back to jump it again for good measure with a feature of the Perez Hilton Presents tour.

The roster for the blogger's tour: Norwegian singer Ida Maria, New Zealand chanteuse Ladyhawke and New York rockers Semi Precious Weapons.

Selecting the lineup was simple: Hilton went after artists he digs.

“Ida Maria is such a ferocious, raw performer,” he says of the indie rocker, who’s been known to bust out stripteases onstage while performing her tune “I Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked.” “Live, she kind of scares me,” he admits.

Perez, who it's safe to say is not a fan of Joe Wilson based on the t-shirt he's wearing in the photo above, admits he wants to expand his brand and get into the music business. Even though he has no skills, he has considerable influence.

Often adding new tunes to his site, Hilton is a known almost as much for his love of music as for increasingly unfunny and uninteresting blog posts.

He gushes about Madonna and Lady Gaga. He was also an early fan of Sliimy, who snagged attention with his cover of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer.”

Now, he’s the debut signing on Hilton’s Perezcious Music label.

John Mayer is a douchebag who is too obsessed with Twitter and himself.

We have to give him his due as a charitable guy, however, and reluctantly admit that some of his most recent Tweets are maybe a little bit funny.

The lame crooner took to Twitter to address rumors that he’s been "hooking up with Kristin Cavallari in secret" at the house of a mutual friend.

Here's how Mayer debunked that: “Rumor control: How do I put this like a gentleman... I have never high-fived Kristin Cavallari with my penis.”

That clears it up as well as one could expect. But he continues!

  • “I’m sure she’s a wonderful gal but we have never tasted the Skittles Rainbow together.”
  • “I have never Bensoned her Hedges, nor have I attempted to Bartle her James.”
  • “My Milli has never slam danced with her Vanilli.”

Okay John. That's enough. Go back to writing songs.

A K-Cavs Pic

Despite tabloids' best efforts, John Mayer is not high-fiving Kristin Cavallari with his penis. Justin-Bobby Brescia will pretend to on The Hills soon enough, however.

Hugh Hefner claims his soon-to-be ex-wife cheated on him before their marriage failed - but that's not why he finally filed to divorce Kimberley Conrad.

The Playboy mogul decided to file, he says, after Conrad sued him in recent weeks for $5 million stemming from the sale of a home they owned together.

Kimberley Conrad, who married Hef in 1989 but had been separated from him since 1998, had been living in the house, which is located right next door to the Playboy mansion, with the couple's two kids, now ages 19 and 17.

As for why he stayed married 11 years after they essentially called off their relationship, Hef says, "At the time of the separation, I was happy to get a divorce. I only remained married for the sake of the children at her request."

He strongly denied that he owes Kimberley any money, and that he's faithfully paid her $250,000 a year as promised in a prenuptial agreement.

Frustrated, he says he's "paid every cent" that he agreed to in prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and says "I've been generous to a fault."

Hefner notes that he was "faithful" during the time they were together, but says that Kimberley Conrad had cheated on him "early in the relationship."

He knows who the other man is, but won't say. Hillel Chodos, a lawyer for Conrad, said the filing "speaks for itself, and we'll respond in due course."

We don't know what kind of settlement these two will come to, but here's how much Hugh rakes in per month (yes, that's per month, not per year):

  • Salary from Playboy: $116,667
  • Social Security: $1,896
  • Dividends and interest: $121,099
  • Rental income: $17,058
  • Income from HMH Productions: $15,808
  • Pensions and retirement: $413
  • Other miscellaneous income: $17,639

That's a total monthly income of $290,580. Not bad, especially on top of the $306,548 in cash and $36,802,558 in stocks and bonds he says he owns.

Guess this helps explain how an octogenarian can score Crystal Harris. Although she may not want to get her hopes up about marriage after this.

Getting relationship advice from Jennifer Aniston is kind of like taking a cooking class from Mischa Barton. But Jen has opened up about love again.

Thus, we must drop everything and transcribe her sage remarks.

In her new film Love Happens, Jennifer has a disastrous first date with Aaron Eckhart, But things haven't gotten quite so awful for her in real life.

Not quite.

"I have to say that luckily I haven't had one," Aniston says of first-date disasters.

"It's more that thing where you just want to go home and they're like 'So, do you want to go somewhere afterward?' And it's like, 'Um, no.'"

Astounding relationship advice and insight once again.

Pretty Jen

Jennifer Aniston, 40, says that she's never had to use a friend as a lifeline to call with a made-up emergency during a bad date. "Oh, God, no!" she laughed. "I haven't done that, but that's really funny! That happened in The Breakup!"

Linked romantically to many of her male co-stars over the years ("Every one," she sighs), the miserable girl says the rumors even started with Eckhart.

"It's so funny ... when we were first meeting for lunch, meeting with the director, they took a picture of us in the restaurant and said 'What's happening? Something must be happening! They're having lunch, my God!'" she says.

"But then, yeah, they figured out that we were doing a movie together."

For the most part, Aniston can handle it if she's portrayed inaccurately in the celebrity gossip media. As long as people still go see her movies and all.

"It doesn't bug me, if people don't believe it. That's all," she says. "I would just hate it if people actually believed any of it. Then it affects my work."

U.S. President Barack Obama was giving a speech to Congress Wednesday night about health care. Until Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina decided to interject.

Here's how the exchange (if you can call it that) went:

  • Barack Obama: " ... There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false ... the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally."
  • Joe Wilson: "You lie!"

Truly, the classiest, most effective way to disagree with someone.

Check out the video of Joe Wilson's "You Lie!" moment ...

You might expect such a response to Obama's address to school children ... actually, no you wouldn't. Five-year-olds typically have better manners than this.

Perhaps it was a perfect storm of controversial topics helped evoke Wilson's bizarre, negative and universally-criticized outburst. It was the South Carolinan who had been reinforcing the belief that health care reform includes "Death Panels."

Wilson called it an "end-of-life counseling program, which has been highlighted by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a program which could lead to seniors being encouraged to seek less care to protect the government´s bottom line."

Minutes before Wilson's outburst, Obama's speech debunked that: "It's a lie, plain and simple," he said, which brought most of Congress to its collective feet.

After the speech, reaction to Wilson's remark was bipartisan.

Sen. John McCain, among many others, said the outburst was "totally disrespectful" and demanded that Rep. Wilson apologize to the president, which he did.
