Yikes – late night is getting really raunchy.
An escalating war of words between The Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien and actress Kirstie Alley might have simmered down Wednesday, as O’Brien pledged to never joke about the actresses’ weight issues again, saying he will insert the name of portly Peru leader Alan Garcia Perez in place of he Cheers alum.
O’Brien attracted negative attention from Alley through a barrage of fat jokes he cracked at her expense — all of which he replayed during Wednesday’s show. Alley hit back at O’Brien on her Twitter page earlier this week.
“ONE BITCH I’m gonna knck [sic] out next time I see her is CONAN O’BITCH O’BRIAN [sic],” Alley Tweeted. “That guy acts like I bit his d*** off.”
O’Brien went for the jugular in response Wednesday, saying: “My penis is not on the Weight Watchers diet — I looked it up. She can have a shake, one slice of wheat bread and then a sensible penis.”
