“Don’t worry,” the DWTS star tells fans after he compares her to a pig.

Dancing with the Stars contestant Kirstie Alley is shrugging off George Lopez’s joke that compared her to a pig.

Lopez made the crack on his late night TBS show Wednesday, saying the plus-sized actress “did a nice job” during her Dancing With the Stars debut, “her little hooves tapping away. Before the show, she went to the market, and then she had roast beef and this is her going all the way home!” 
“Don’t worry about George’s comments,” Alley Tweeted Thursday. “Just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf …falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.”
On Thursday, Lopez Tweeted an apology: “I misjudged the joke. No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.”
Alley may have the last laugh: On Monday’s DWTS debut, she was among the night’s highest scorers, receiving a 23 out of 30 for her cha cha.
