Latin-American comic and star of his own show, George Lopez, shocked listeners on Wednesday on the Orlando station WOMX 105.1’s “Scott & Erica Show” when he told the hosts he wanted to “start a feud” with “Tonight” show host Jay Leno.
“Leno is the biggest two-faced dude in TV,” said Lopez. Sources said Lopez was offended by Leno’s attitude towards Lopez after the ABC sitcom star had a kidney transplant in 2005, reported Richard Johnson of Page Six.
Leno invited him on his show after the surgery, but hasn’t had Lopez back since then. Page Six speculates Leno’s producers allegedly told Lopez “it was because he wasn’t funny enough the first time.”
“When I had my transplant, he called me and was the nice guy on the phone,” said Lopez. “And then he just puts the knife in your back . . . It tells you something about Jay Leno if Conan O’Brien is coming into ‘The Tonight Show’ [in 2009] when Jay Leno is still young enough to be the host,” snipped Lopez.
“The dude’s, like, the worst interviewer on TV.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
