Late night host George Lopez made a joke this week implying that instant Dancing with the Stars favorite Kirstie Alley is a pig. It didn't go over too well.

On Tuesday's Lopez Tonight, he said, “She did a nice job,” after showing a clip of Kirstie and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “Her little hooves tapping away.”

He then did a play on the classic nursery rhyme, This Little Piggy Goes to Market, before playing a clip of a pig squealing “wheeeee” riding in a car.

Having thought better of it, Lopez apologized last night on Twitter:

Not sure how one misjudges a joke in which one calls a woman a pig - not something they typically take kindly too - but it appears no harm was done.

Alley struck back at Lopez, writing: "lol...a drunk pig...hehe" and later, this:

"Don't worry about George's comments... just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk wolf... falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs."

Good one. This isn't the first such incident for Lopez, who made weight-related cracks about Bristol Palin ballooning on DWTS last season, too.

Here's Kirstie's strong debut performance from Monday night ...

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard get married at some point? We haven't heard about it, but the Parenthood star was referred to as her husband last night.

Bell Tweeted the following with a photo of Dax: "My adorable husband, @daxshepard1 voting 4 his favorite american idol. Over and over again."

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Husband or fiance, here's Shepard doing just that. You don't call someone that if you're not really married, right? Well, besides on Grey's Anatomy?

We'd have to guess not. So, congratulations to them both, maybe! In other news, Dax is apparently a card-carrying member of Team Pia Toscano:

Not only is Dax moved by Pia's rendition of "All in Love is Fair," American Idol's move to Wednesday-Thursday helps Parenthood's chances of survival. Win-win!

Her notorious hit is named "Friday," so this is only appropriate:

Rebecca Black will be a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this Friday night, a fact that has the 13-year old more pumped than if she met Justin Bieber. Almost. Okay, not really. But it's still cool.

“What’s even better than being able to appear in the Tonight Show with Jay Leno? Having my bestfriend be able to come with<3″ Black Tweeted yesterday.

The aspiring artist also gave a shout-out to Nick Jonas, who covered her single during a charity event over the weekend. Wrote Rebecca:

“I think @nickjonas did an AMAZING job with Friday! You’re amazing, Nick."

UPDATE/CORRECTION: It appears as though Black appeared on The Tonight Show last night. We regret the error.

Their long-running feud recently escalated on Twitter, but now Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes are burying the social media hatchet - together.

After battling it out over Twitter (and all other methods of media, and presumably in private as well) for over a year, they swear it's finally over.

"As a collective unit, Brandi and I would like all negativity to cease toward one another," wrote Rimes, who's engaged to Brandi's ex, Eddie Cibrian.

When Eddie and LeAnn got together in 2009, both were married to other people - he to Brandi Glanville and she to Dean Sheremet. Much bitterness ensued.

Rimes says she's done bashing Brandi - and wants her fans to stop, too.

"We have communicated and have a direct understanding that we are ONLY ourselves on Twitter and have no other accounts that try to destroy one another."

"Please for our families' sake stop the hate and let us live OUR lives. We don't need opinions or outside help for that to happen. Thanks, LeAnn and Brandi."

The statement was subsequently retweeted by Glanville.

While it's a bit silly to call out your own followers for backing you up in a feud with your sworn enemy, it's good they resolved their differences in any case.

Okay, so it's no Facebook. But Twitter is a fairly successful social media phenomenon in its own right. One that celebrates its fifth birthday this week!

In honor of this momentous occasions, we urge you to do two things:

  1. Follow THG on Twitter!
  2. Watch the awesome Funny or Die video below, which recounts the history of Twitter in Ken Burns-esque, faux-documentary fashion ...

The best line comes from Ray Wise as the professor / historian, who laments that “It’s next to impossible to piece together the early history of Twitter simply because there were not nearly enough tweets about it at the time.”

So true. There was NO way to record history pre-Twitter. Life as we know it basically began in 2006. Not coincidentally, so did THG. Think about it.

During a break from filming Breaking Dawn in Canada this week, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tried to sneak away for a date.

But they ran into a contingent of fans along the way.

Robsten was spotted watching Red Riding Hood in a British Columbia theater by a fellow movie goer, who Tweeted: "They were alone. He was nice. She was just awkward. Didn't really wanna take photos." 

Another fan echoed that sentiment, writing that "[Stewart's] personality and body language is much like Bella," but managing to gather her pals around the couple for a photo, as seen above.

See Kristen's eyes sneaking out from behind her man? Come on out and smile, K. Stew. It's okay. The camera won't bite.

Well, that was prompt.

Insurance company Aflac fired Gilbert Gottfried as the voice of its iconic duck on Monday after a series of tasteless Twitter jokes about the earthquake in Japan.

The country was rocked by the 8.9 quake late last week, costing thousands their lives and sparking fears of potential nuclear fallout and tsunami-scale flooding.

Japan is also Aflac's top market, so if the inappropriateness and timing of Gilbert Gottfried's tsunami Tweets weren't reason enough, the bottom line will do it.

Before being cut loose yesterday, Gottfried had voiced the duck in the company's TV ads since 2000, quacking "Af-LAC!" in his famously abrasive voice.

The company released a statement saying the following:

"Gilbert’s recent comments about the crisis in Japan were lacking in humor and certainly do not represent the thoughts and feelings of anyone at Aflac."

Aflac, which already uses a different "duck" in Japan, "will immediately conduct a nationwide casting call to find a new voice of the iconic Aflac Duck."

No word if anyone plans to fire 50 Cent for similar Tweets, though we somehow doubt it, as that carries some risk of him busting a cap in your a$$.

Tsunami-related humor ...

Faced with questions and Tweets about her participation in an Usher sex tape, Tameka Foster has responded today with the same basic answer over and over:

I had intercourse with my husband. Shoot me!

"NEWSFLASH!! BREAKING NEWS! GUESS WHAT??!!" Foster wrote this morning. "I have copulated w/my husband! O_O. Why is this news again?? #ConfusedTweet. End of discussion."

Foster, Tameka

The news, of course, is that Foster and Usher copulated... and filmed said copulation... and somehow left the footage on a computer they placed inside a car. That's the story, at least.

Based on the aggressive way in which Tameka is acknowledging the video, many will claim she is the one behind its (inevitable) leak.

"I cant stress over what I cant change," she Tweeted this afternoon. "Hey I was married, happily. So theres a chance that we might…Its silly 'news' 2 me."

But it's still news. And this is the first time anyone has thought about Tameka Foster in years. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

Kim Kardashian is an absolute bore. Seriously, did you see this week's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York?

But say this about the reality star... ummm... well... let's see... she knows how to use Twitter!

Kim got her "ganster on" at Eva Longoria's birthday party Saturday night, attending the 1920s-themed bash and posing with fellow attendees such as Heidi Klum.

She Tweeted the following photos from the event, so she could continue to make millions off followers who somehow don't understand that they are nothing but a dollar sign to her give us a taste of the atmosphere:

Gilbert Gottfried must really believe any publicity is good publicity, because making light of a natural disaster won't endear himself to a lot of people.

As the death toll creeps toward five figures, and with the fear of an actual nuclear meltdown lingering, the comedian absolutely went off on the topic.

Seriously, this puts 50 Cent's Tweets to shame.

Gottfried

There's not politically correct ... and then there's this.

While some stars, such as Petra Nemcova, work tirelessly to support the victims of the Japanese tragedy, it's amazing that others deliberately mock it.

Sure, he's a comedian, and maybe Gilbert will surprise us and turn this into something positive. Until then, he can likely expect some angry emails.

On Gottfriend's Twitter page, 12 tsunami-inspired jokes have been dropped in the last day, such as (and these aren't even the offensive ones):
