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.

Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl is going to be adopting a baby this week, according to Radar Online. She and hubby Josh Kelleyare welcoming a baby girl.

This has not been confirmed, but is not usually the type of thing sites make up. Plus, the two have wanted a baby for awhile, and have talked about adopting.

The adoption process has been in the works for at least six months for Katherine and Josh, who will be adopting the little 10-month-old girl from South Korea.

Her full name is Nayleigh and her nickname will be Leigh. The cute couple can't wait, either: “She is thrilled,” a source said. “She and Josh are so happy.”

Heigl recently hosted a baby shower for co-star Ellen Pompeo. Bet that was a nice preview ... minus Chris Ivery cheating on her with Rachel Artz, that is.

Katherine and Josh wed in December 2007. The star is leaving Grey’s Anatomy for five episodes this season while she films the movie Life As We Know It.

Congrats to Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley if the adoption rumors are true!

Showing off her bikini body for the paparazzi is one thing. Taking everything off for the shark-jumping magazine run by Hugh Hefner is quite another.

Kate Gosselin is said to have received a $400,000 offer from the dirty old man to pose in Playboy, but doesn't plan to get fully nude anytime soon.

Dancer with Stars

"Hugh sent her a letter, but Kate was mortified and threw it away!" a source said. "She didn't think it was appropriate because of the children."

Wow, you think?

Despite being "proud of how she looks," Kate was baffled by the offer. But not as baffled as she was by Jon Gosselin's Primetime interview last night.

To sum up, he despises Kate, who he bitterly calls an annoying, abusive nag, self-obsessed phony, liar, neglectful parent and terrible person.

That's just the Cliff's Notes, too.

Kate Gosselin loves showing off her bikini body. But nothing more.

Despite being livid over Jon's Good Morning America and Primetime attacks on her, Kate Gosselin is busy getting revenge on him. According to reports, she's already bleeding Jon dry financially as they gear up for their divorce.

"Kate is so upset and disgusted over Jon's cavalier 'single guy' behavior - and the money he has been wasting to fund it - that she'd leave him without a penny, barefoot and homeless on the street if she could," said a source.

"Needless to say, she's prepared to do all she can to insure she gets most, if not all, of the millions that are at stake in their impending split."

No need for a nude photo shoot to pay the bills in that case.

Who sucks the most?

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar - her first since her brother Michael's death - Janet Jackson says she been unable to watch TV since he died June 25.

"It will drive you crazy," she says. "People can have rhinoceros skin, but there's a point when something's going to hurt you. Not everyone is stone, stone."

"I haven't watched the news in weeks. I had to ask my chef, 'How's Obama doing?' I haven't read a newspaper. On top of that, we lost a family member."

At times during the interview, Janet - who will perform a tribute to her late brother at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards - was at a compete loss for words.

"My brother is, I mean was..." she said, shifting on the couch, staring at the floor. "You have to forgive me, because it's really hard to believe he's passed."

Michael was laid to rest last week. His death, caused by "acute propofol intoxication," has been ruled a homicide; several doctors are under investigation.

She did not discuss her brother's prescription drug history, but Janet says he seemed in good spirits the last time she saw him: May 14 at a family gathering.

"We had so much fun that day," she says, noting that ate Thai food and tormented each other. "We kept calling each other after and saying how great it was."

As for how she is coping, "I've been doing okay," Janet Jackson says. "Work helps focus all of that energy on something that is of value to you."

She says she was touched when Michael's daughter Paris Jackson, 11, spoke at her father's memorial: "I was so proud. People said to me that Michael's daughter speaking really gave them a sense of how he was as a father, in her words."

"Paris is incredibly smart; they are all so smart. She's a sweet girl. The kids are doing well. They're with all their cousins; that family love will keep them going."

Janet also confirms that she's split from beau Jermaine Dupri.

She doesn't know if she'll get married again (she is twice divorced), but as for kids, "I'd like to adopt," Janet says. "And I think that if I'm really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that's God's plan for me."

Already the proud parents of daughter Harlow Winter Kate, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden just became the proud parents of a baby boy this morning!

The couple wrote on her website:

"In the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. He weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes."

The newborn joins older sister Harlow, who was born in January 2008.

A Mom Again

Nicole Richie has enjoyed a new low-key lifestyle at home since the birth of Harlow, thoughstill keeps active with various business projects, including a maternity clothing line for A Pea in the Pod and her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line.

The couple also run the Richie Madden Children's Foundation, which they launched in 2007 to provide grants to health-care and education non-profits.

"I don't think you can plan anything about having a child," Nicole Richie said in October 2008. "It's something completely new, so you just have to go with whatever works for you. There's a million different ways to be a mom."

We expect she'll handle it with flying colors yet again!

The epic nightclub melee from last week that pit Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole against Girls Gone Wild sleaze ball Joe Francis was caught on surveillance video.

Jayde claims she threw a drink in Francis' face, only to have him kick and punch her. Joe says after the drink incident, he grabbed her hair but that was it.

According to sources, Francis may be in the right.

The video at Guys and Dolls in West Hollywood shows Jayde Nicole throwing a drink in Francis' face, and then Joe grabbing her hair as he turned around.

Jayde falls to the ground but Francis never appears to lay another hand on her, although she was trampled in the ensuing melee that broke out.

SLEAZE SAID, SHE SAID: Could Joe Francis actually be telling the truth?

The fight is said to have started because Joe was hitting on his ex, Abbey Wilson, too aggressively for her friend Jayde's taste. Jayde stepped in.

Accounts of what happened after that differ, but all parties were ejected from the club, Brody Jenner punched Francis in the face and was tasered.

Jayde filed a police report alleging Francis repeatedly hit and kicked her, and there are rumors that Joe is coaching Abbey Wilson to back him up.

But it may all be moot, as sources say the tape may not support Jayde's claim of assault at the hands of Francis. The case is under investigation.

Whose side are you on?

Readers of Page Six may remember a recent blind recently printed about some secret trysts between a certain reality star and a certain well-known singer.

Well, that pair is rumored to be John Mayer and Kristin Cavallari.

They have been "hooking up secretly" at a mutual friend’s house in the Mt. Olympus area of the Hollywood Hills for the past two years, sources say.

Kristin Cavallari was reportedly hesitant to date John publicly because she didn’t want to be added to his long list of conquests. A fair concern.

As a result, the new star of The Hills and the lame crooner were both "dating other people off and on." That's putting it mildly in John's case.

Is Kristin Cavallari John Mayer's latest bedpost notch?

Supposedly, her long-running “friends with benefits” relationship with the douchebag has evolved into more, and they are considering going public.

Somehow we doubt they will.

You know how that went for Scheana Marie when that play thing tried to cash in, and besides, Kristin has a lot of fake romances going on in The Hills.

In other news involving MTV characters reality stars, Whitney Port recently broke up with beau Freddie Fackelmayer. We hope she's holding up okay.

After 20 years of marriage and 11 of estrangement, Hugh Hefner has finally made the move to divorce his wife, Kimberley Conrad. Yes. Hef is married.

They've been separated since 1998. Kimberley, a former Playboy model (of course), has been living in a nice house next door to the Playboy mansion.

Things ended amicably between the pair, who legally remained married as Conrad lived next door raising their two sons, Marston, 19, and Cooper, 17.

Earlier this year, however, Hefner fell on some hard times and sold that house, prompting Kimberley Conrad to sue him. Yes, suing her own husband.

Kimberley says Hugh Hefner, who's been screwing the Shannon Twins and Crystal Harris, has also screwed her this year - out of more than $5 million.

Not a pretty picture. Unlike the pictures below, of the '89 Playmate of the Year. Hef knew how to pick 'em back then. The Shannon Twins? Kinda whack.

Kimberley Conrad is still Mrs. Hugh Hefner. For now.

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is pregnant. It's a wonderful thing.

Not as wonderful as that baby news? The fact that her husband, Chris Ivery, has allegedly been engaging in baby talk of his own ... with his teenage lover!

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery Photo

In April, Ellen Pompeo confirmed that she and Chris Ivery are expecting their first child, a daughter, later this year. But by late May, Chris had begun a torrid affair with a restaurant hostess, Rachel Artz, in his native city of Boston.

"Yes, I had sexual relations with Chris Ivery," Rachel Artz herself acknowledged, assuming she's a real person, when she spoke with Star Magazine.

"We were intimate several times."

Is Ellen Pompeo's husband, Chris Ivery, sleeping with Rachel Artz?

A rep for the Grey's Anatomy star denied the affair, but additional sources say that over the course of three months, Chris hit it with Rachel several times.

The venues? Hotels in Boston and Miami, and a private residence in Martha's Vineyard, all while Ellen was home and filming her hit series in Los Angeles.

"Chris promised Rachel he'd make her a star. That's his lure," an insider said. "Chris often took calls from Ellen in front of Rachel and talked about their baby-to-be. He didn't seem to like Ellen much when he talked about her."

"He made her seem like a diva."

A diva who pays all his bills. The Hollywood Gossip sources know Chris Ivery is a d!ck, but we never expected something like this. Obnoxiously asking for Red Sox tickets, sure. Nailing some teenager? That's another ball game.

In the new issue of Maxim, Audrina Patridge takes her top off, seductively eats some fruit and talks about the wackiest things she's heard about herself.

"That I have chin implants, I've gotten cheek implants, a nose job ... God, everything," The Hills hottie said, denying all of those plastic surgery rumors.

She never specifically denies getting fake boobs, of course.

Audrina also discusses the constant speculation as to her love life: "I took my brother out one night, and he was my boyfriend the next day."

No way that actually happened, but we see the point.

Patridge, who is dating Corey Bohan again, says she barely talks to former co-star Lauren Conrad: "We text every now and then, but that's about it."

Audrina Patridge, topless, washes clothes she apparently doesn't intend to wear at any point. Man, someone wasted a lot of money on that new front-loading washer.

As for pal Heidi Montag? "Heidi ... um, keeps asking me to go to Bible study with her," she says. Somewhere, God is shaking His head at that one.

Audrina is so over The Hills, which she's leaving after this season.

"You know, it's just something that I felt inside," she says. "I'm an adult now, and I don't need all the petty drama and drinking and fighting."

"I've been there, done that, and I'm ready to move on."

Move on to skanky photo shoots for men's magazines, that is. What is it with girls eating fruit in bed? Is that supposed to be a turn-on? How is that an appealing combination? Click to enlarge the Audrina Patridge pictures from Maxim ...
