Kirstie Alley hit the ballroom on “Dancing with the Stars” earlier this week for the first time and she scored big, impressing the fans and judges with her debut performance alongside Maksim Chmerkovskiy. One person, however, was immune to her toe-tapping charms – George Lopez.
The host of “Lopez Tonight” suggested the plus-sized star, who recently lost 60 lbs., looked pig-like on the dance floor.
“She did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away,” the comedian said as he recapped the Monday night “DWTS” opener, where he also suggested Wendy Williams was a “man.”
“Before the show, she went to the market, and then she had roast beef and this is her going all the way home,” he added of Kirstie, cutting to the Geico ad featuring a little pig squealing out the window as he caught a ride home from school.
It appears, though, that Kirstie wasn’t prepared to take the comment on the chin, slinging back a little mud of her own.
In response to a fan’s Tweet on Thursday calling George a “pig” right back, the former “Cheers” star suggested George looked like a porker himself — one under the influence.
“lol…a drunk pig…hehe,” she wrote.
While she may not have a lot of love for George at the minute, Kirstie did have some kind words for Jay Leno, whose “Tonight Show” set she planned to visit on Thursday.
“SPEAKING OF JAY LENO….I will be making out with him this THURSDAY…so tune in,” she Tweeted.
“Dancing with the Stars” returns to ABC at 8 PM on Monday.
