Start placing your bets: Round two of Kirstie Alley v. George Lopez has begun! As you know, earlier this week, the TBS late-night host compared Alley to a dancing pig. Alley, naturally, fired back via Twitter, writing, “Just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf …falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.” He quickly tweeted an apology saying he “misjudged the joke,” but the damage had already been done. But wait! There’s more! Instead of letting bygones be bygones, Alley tweeted at Lopez that she didn’t need or want his apology. “I want your kidney dude..on behalf of ur X and all the women uv insulted…give it back.” (Alley was referring to Lopez’s ex-wife, who famously donated a kidney to her then-ailing husband. Harsh!) She later tweeted that “I want ur Kidney dude” will replace “here’s your ring back!” Is it just me, or will that one not pick up steam?
I’m all for drama on the dance floor. (I give it a Len Goodman seh-ven!) But will Alley’s drama outside of the ballroom help or hurt her DWTS chances? Fans tend to love the bigger-than-life personalities on the show, but could this venom-laced back-and-forth just make the charming frontrunner look… catty?
Then again, she didn’t break a window, so maybe fans will just chalk it up to celebrities being celebrities. After all, it looks like this feud is coming to an end: In what appears to be Alley’s final tweet on the matter, the Dancing star wrote, “take life as lightly as u can and then move on …even u George ….u are forgiven…..:)….”
What do you think about the feud? Does it make you love Alley more for standing up for herself? Or do you think her replies to Lopez were just as insensitive? Sound off in the comments below.
