John Pinette Says Doctors Concerned About His Health & Weight One Week Before Death

Posted on April 8th, 2014 at 8:48 am

John Pinette passed away on Sunday, and RumorFix has obtained the late comedian's final on-camera interview.

Pinette sat down with Dish Nation's Los Angeles team, Heidi and Frank just a week before his death on March 27.

The star, who was famous for his self-deprecating humor about his weight, poked fun at the most recent challenges he'd been facing with his health and body.

Mentioning how he was heaviest in the year 2000, Pinette explains that he'd reached a milestone since then by shedding a whopping 200 pounds! But that celebration didn't last for long, he says, as the doctor recently had told him he needed to "lose another 75 pounds to get on the height and weight chart that says I should lose weight."

He explains, "You know how inside of every big person there's a skinny person waiting to come out? Well, my person was heavy!"

The 50-year-old comic died of natural causes on Saturday in a hotel in Pittsburgh.
