George Lopez may or may not be a fan of Kirstie Alley’s dancing, but he’s made clear his feelings on her body.
According to huffpost Entertainment:
On “Lopez Tonight” Tuesday night, Lopez reviewed the first episode of the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Alley, who has famously struggled with her weight, danced a roundly praised cha-cha performance to Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You.” Without commenting on her technique, Lopez criticized her physique.
“She did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away,” Lopez said, comparing Alley to a pig. “Before the show she went to the market, then she had roast beef, and this is her going all the way home,” he continued before cutting to a video of a pig squealing, from a recent Geico commercial.
Ok so hold on a minute- he called her a pig. I get it he’s a comic and comics make jokes, but I would have like for him to call her a courageous pig, seeing as though it must have taken more courage than he or anyone else could imagine to put one’s self under such scrutiny. Alley well knows that by doing the show she is opening herself up to comments such as this and even worse, but she’s doing it and that’ s the amazing thing. I have always admired Alley for her honesty, her weight issues have plagued her ever since she kick cocaine, and for her it is what it is, she maintains a sense of humor about it and probably like most overweight people she goes in and out of trying to fight the battle of conquering her body. Right now she is in the fight and moving everyday will have it’s pay off. No worries Kiristie, I say we all vote for her so that she stays on and has a better chance of getting super fit so she can go on the George Lopez show and give him what for!!
