George Lopez Wants Kirstie Alley to Come on His Show, But She Wants His Kidney Instead
George Lopez extended an olive branch to Kirstie Alley Friday when he invited her to be a guest on his show after she rejected his apology via Twitter for comparing her to a pig Wednesday.
In an interview with “Access Hollywood,” Lopez said his joke was “poor judgment. As they say in my world of golf, ‘bad form on my part.’”
“I’ve apologized. I think she’s accepted my apology, I wish that she had and that she would be a guest on ‘Lopez Tonight,’” the comedian said. “ I would love to have her on.”
“Listen, she has a lot of fans and when you make a joke of that type, um, it never goes over well.”
But contrary to what he thought, Alley did not accept his apology, and instead demanded one of his kidneys.
“I don’t need or want ur apology…I want your kidney dude .. on behalf of ur X and all the women uv insulted…give it back,” she said referring to Lopez’s ex-wife Ana giving him one of her kidneys in 2005.
Lopez’s original apology, which he Tweeted, read, ““I misjudged the joke. No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.”
Many were not amused by Lopez’s callous “joke,” considering that 60-year-old Alley has struggled very publicly with weight issues over the years, at one point tipping the scales at 230 pounds and sparking speculation she suffers with a compulsive eating disorder.
