Here's the scoop according to PopEater: About a year ago while on a Southwest flight he was instructed to leave because he was "too fat" to fly. In response, he tweeted, "The @SouthwestAir Diet.

During an interview last night Kevin told Joy Behar that he spent most of his life "yo-yoing in terms of weight" and admits he'll never be real thin. "Let's be honest," he said. "I've lost 65 pounds but nobody's going 'I wanna sleep with you!' They're just like, 'Keep going, you look better.'"

Even though he's lighter on the scale, Kevin is still fuming about getting thrown off last year's flight and "felt at that moment 'I'll lose the weight but I'm not putting on thinner clothes.' I'm still the same person I was when I was 65 pounds heavier." He adds, "Sometimes a fat dude has a lot to offer, if you can just get past the blubber."
