Kill Bill beauty Vivica A Fox informed comedian Jimmy Kimmel he'd get his "a*s kicked" last night (30AUG05), after he made fun of one of her close pals on his chat show.

On his late-night show, JIMMY KIMMEL has long poked fun at US TV personality Star Jones Reynolds' weight and November (04) marriage to investment banker Al Reynolds.

And Fox, who served as a bridesmaid at the New York nuptials, was particularly disgusted when Kimmel continued his tirade of jokes at her pal's expense once she arrived on the stage.

After greeting Kimmel's jokes about Jones Reynolds with frosty silence, the comedian noted, "We're off to a bad start... Maybe this will be on one of those DVDs 20 years from now. Great uncomfortable moments."

Fox, ex-girlfriend of 50 CENT, responded, "We usually have really great comical moments, but that's my friend and I love her... It's not funny to me, so let's start over."

But things failed to improve - when Kimmel suggested that he, Fox, Jones Reynolds and her husband get together, she responded, "You would get your a*s kicked... I would have to take off my shoe and beat you down, brother!"

The interview ended soon afterwards.
