Kirstie Alley: Dancing With The Pigs
Things get heated between Kirstie Alley and George Lopez.
The new season of Dancing with the Stars is only one episode old and there is already controversy surround the show. However, things are a little different this season than last in that this controversy is taking place away from the dance floor and involves dancer Kirstie Alley and TV talk show host George Lopez.
When the announcement for Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars was made there were a lot of people interested in and maybe even shocked by the casting of Kirstie Alley. Sure, she is exactly the type of star they love to cast in that she once had a pretty big career that has waned recently. What makes her different than most of the past contestants is that she has been battling a weight problem for the last several years. She says she lost around 60 pounds before coming on the show, but clearly still has a ways to go. She was the last dancer to perform on the premiere episode and I think she shocked everyone with her energy level, how well she moved and how good she did. Well, that is, she seemed to impress everyone but George Lopez.
George Lopez took to his TV show to review the first episode of DWTS. He made fun of a few to the dancers, gave Ralph Macchio some props and then tore Kirstie Alley apart basically calling her pig. It was a little bit funny, but clearly mean and not meant in good spirits.
Kirstie Alley took to her Twitter to fire back. She kept with the little pigs theme saying not to worry about George’s comments and to “just remembers what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf…falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.” This references George’s separation from his wife Ann who kicked him out and divorced him due to his heavy drinking.
George Lopez then apologized via Twitter saying, “I misjudged the joke. No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.” Her response was not very forgiving as she replied: “I don’t need or want ur apology…I want your kidney dude…on behalf of ur X and all the women uv insulted…give it back.” This, of course, is a reference to George getting a kidney from his no ex-wife.
It looks like this Kirstie Alley fight is just starting to heat up. Hopefully she will last long enough on DWTS to let this feud brew and really get good.
