On February 24th, Kevin Smith’s life changed forever after he almost died from a massive Heart attack. Now almost 2 months later, he tells Today, “the heart attack is the best thing that ever happened to him.”
Since that fateful night, he has lost 32 pounds and has 18 more to go before he reaches his goal weight. He started out his weight loss with Penn Jillette’s diet of only potatoes, but now he is losing the rest with Weight Watchers. They are so happy to have him that they made him an ambassador. Which is a good thing because he plans to lose another 25 pounds after he reaches a goal. His dick will be so huge by then, I bet he will pose naked for the whole world to see.
Talking about seeing, that comedy special he was taping the night he nearly died is going to air on Showtime May 11th. I have seen Silent But Deadly and it is a laugh riot from beginning until the end. Although at the end he gets really sentimental. I wonder if he knew those words would become even more impactful just a few minutes later.
I want to go back to that night, he told Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin that he was very chatty when the doctors were putting the stent in him. Not only that, he was singing the Degrassi: The Next Generation theme song as they were doing it because it is very uplifting. I don’t know why, but that brought me so much joy. Probably, because that tune is pure happiness. Once a Degrassi fan, always a Degrassi fan.
Anyways, glad to see that he is doing so much better. He still has plenty left to give and I cannot wait to see what he gives us.
