Lisa Lampanelli

NBC Treated Me Like Rosa Parks

But I Got My Apology

1/5/2012 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli has buried the hatchet with NBC -- calling in to TMZ Live moments ago, claiming the network has apologized for dissing her hardcore at the NY Knicks game last night ... or as she put it, treating her like "Rosa Parks."

Lisa tells us, NBC called her up today to say sorry for the faux pas -- after it asked Lisa to attend the game as a favor to promote "Celebrity Apprentice" ... then insulted her with an 11th row seat, while her co-stars Teresa Giudice and Dayana Mendoza sat courtside.

Lisa cracked, "I'm like Rosa Parks! ... Don't sit me in the back of the bus!" -- but says she has since forgiven the network. According to Lisa, NBC even asked for her address to send her a gift in the mail.

Fruit baskets fix everything.

NBC was just trying to be considerate to the other spectators.....they put that FAT COW in the back row b/c, otherwise, no one would be able to see the game around that cow's FAT ASS!!!!

I think its incredibly shameful & classless of this woman (whoever she is) to equate not being sat in the front row of a basketball game to what is widely regarded as the start of the civil rights movement. Hopefully one of her black boyfriends can educate her as to exactly why the two have nothing in common although I'm sure they're as lost as she is. Smdh.

WTF? Are you effing kidding me? Yeah.....because free tickets to BB game and only 11th row are equivalent to racism. Seriously?? Lampanelli needs to get grip...on how important SHE THINKS SHE IS! And being forced to sit at the back of a bus, using seperate water fountains, being followed around stores by security, having to be segregated in schools and neighborhoods is EXACTLY how she feels? Loser IDIOTS like her should be segregated to their own IDIOT ISLAND. oh wow..maybe a new reality show for her.....

She is ugly, abrasive, crude, and not that important.

If you are appearing on the Apprentice, you accepted your place at the back of the bus already. Welcome to the J list.

Another classless comment from this cow? What a surprise. I don't contribute to Trump's bank account or ego by watching his bullsh*t, but if I did, it sure wouldn't be to watch this lowlike. Like DWTS, his "stars" just keep getting lower on the food chain.

Firstly, the 11th row is hardly the back of the bus.

Secondly, an error in seating arrangements at a basketball game is hardly tantamount to the abuse and racism suffered by Rosa Parks on public transit, so comparing this situation to hers, Lisa Lampanelli is revealed as a self-involved, arrogant drama queen. Yeah, I get it, your a comedian. Try witty humor next time, instead of trying to make laughs on the backs of legitimate and suffering victims.

They probably sat her a few rows back to protect the players from her vagina. You know how fond of the black penis she is.

Making mockery of what Rosa Parks did for the Civil Rights in America is uncalled for at the very least ignorant on her part....

She's seriously crying over not getting courtside seats? She needs to grow up and realize what's truly important and what isn't.

Rosa Parks was a brave woman who confronted segregation due to RACE. She is an amazing woman who is a symbol of civil disobedience for civil and human rights. How is this situation similar at all? Shame on her.
