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.

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

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

"The audience's reaction to this 'comedian' spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too," Palin, 20, told Fox News. "I hope people didn't have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms."

Are 'Dancing' fans ready for another Palin?
