Clad in a bikini, the 50-year-old comedienne joked that the ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ alum “is “the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight” — but Griffin’s jibes elicited booing instead of laughter.

Instead of devising a lengthy comeback — as she did on Saturday after Margaret Cho accused her mother, Sarah Palin, of forcing her to join ‘DWTS’ — the teen mom kept her rebuttal short and sweet.
