Late night talk show host George Lopez wants a face-to-face with Kirstie Alley following a joke in which he referred to the actress as a pig.

“I’ve apologized,” Lopez said.

“I think she’s accepted my apology. I wish that she had and that she would be guest on Lopez Tonight. I would love to have her on."

He added, “Listen, she has a lot of fans and when you make a joke of that type, um, it never goes over well," Lopez added. ”It was poor judgment. As they say in my world of golf, ‘bad form on my part.”
