Bristol Palin swipes at Kathy Griffin for DWTS weight-gain joke

Sharp-tongued comedienne Kathy Griffin took potshots at Bristol Palin's appearance and Bristol "The Pistol" was ready to fire back.

Booed in a bikini

While hosting the VH1 "Divas Salute the Troops" on Friday and sporting a bikini (why?), the reproachful redhead joked that the "Dancing with the Stars" alum is "the only contestant is the history of the show to actually gained weight." Unfortunately her joke went over like a fart in church, eliciting boos from the audience instead of laughter.

"Come on, come on," Griffin continued, "she gained like 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She's like the white Precious."

Okay - forget about the Bristol bashing for a moment..."diva" is not the word that comes to mind when when describing Kathy Griffin.

Oh well...we digress.

Bristol's rebuttal

So, unlike her lengthy diatribe after fellow contestant, Margaret Cho began spouting off about how Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, forced her daughter to be on "Dancing with the Stars," this time around, the teen activist kept her response to Griffin's comments short and sweet.

Bristol told Fox News, "The audience's reaction to this 'comedian' spoke volumes, and decent people I know would probably have booed her too. I hope people didn't have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticism."

"I think Kathy Griffin is obnoxious and I've rarely found her funny," said Diane B of Cincinnati. "By the same token, Bristol needs to lighten up a bit."
