Sure, she’s a ham — but comparing her to a pig?
Late night funnyman George Lopez took a mean swipe at Kirstie Alley on his talk show Lopez Tonight on Tuesday when he compared the Dancing with the Stars contestant to — a pig!
“She did a nice job,” George joked on Lopez Tonight after showing a clip of Kirstie dancing with pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “Her little hooves tapping away.”
He then did a play on the This Little Piggy Goes to Market nursery rhyme.
“Before the show she went to the market. And then she had roast beef. And this is her going all the way home,” and Lopez played a clip of a pig squealing “wheeeee” while riding in a car.
Kirstie has been criticized for her weight gain in recent years, but she wrote on her Twitter page about her dramatic weight loss before the show and has said she is expecting to lose a lot more during the competition.
“Had lost 60 lbs before DWTS… Haven’t weighed in three weeks but sure I’ve lost over 10 more…” she Tweeted Tuesday.
She has the second highest score on the season premiere of DWTS, receiving 23 points for her dance as well as high praise from the judges. Bruno Tonioli told her, “Your foot placement was the best of the night.” Carrie Ann Inaba said her dance “had sizzle,” and Len Goodman told her, “It was fun, it was cheeky and it made me feel good.”
Lopez also singled out talk show host Wendy Williams, who’s also a contestant on DWTS, calling her a man.
Dancing With the Stars airs Monday and Tuesday on ABC at 9/8c.
