She kissed a girl – and says Southwest Airlines didn't like it.

Actress Leisha Hailey, who starred on the Showtime series The L Word, went on a Twitter tirade Monday, furiously alleging that she and her girlfriend were escorted off of a Southwest flight for kissing each other.

"I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir," Hailey Tweeted. "Flt. attendant said that it was a "family" airline and kissing was not ok."

Criticizing the airline for staffing "homophobic employees," Hailey, 40, added: "Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal? I want to know what Southwest Airlines considers as 'family.' I know plenty of wonderful same sex families I would like to introduce them to. Boycott @SouthwestAir if you are gay. They don't like us."

The airline posted a statement late Monday, saying: "We received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive."

Kevin Smith Loses 65 Lbs. After Getting Kicked Off Airplane

Originally posted 02/09/2011 04:30PM



Kevin Smith, who was kicked off an airplane a year ago Sunday allegedly because he was too fat for one seat, says he's lost 65 lbs. since then – but he's still angry about the incident.

"I feel mixed feelings about losing the weight," the Clerks director, 40, told Joy Behar on her HLN show Tuesday, explaining that the incident on the Southwest flight made him a more forceful advocate for the overweight.

"I sympathize far more with heavier people than I ever will with thin," Smith says. "I'll never be thin."

Kevin Smith Gets into Airplane Trouble – Again

Kevin Smith Gets into Airplane Trouble – Again

Originally posted 12/07/2010 02:30PM

The skies haven't been too friendly to Kevin Smith this year.

The actor-director, who was famously kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for being too large in February, ran into trouble at the airport when trying to board a Virgin America flight to San Francisco. He then blogged about the experience, swearing at the time that he would never fly the airline again.

As he tells it, Smith, 40, his wife Jennifer Schwalbach, and their friend Jason Mewes, arrived at New York's John F. Kennedy airport in plenty of time, checked into their flight and waited in a departure lounge with a paid concierge, whose job is to serve as a liaison between travelers and the airlines, and to escort travelers to board their flights on time.

"Boarding started at 11:15, and we arrived at the gate at 11:35 – a full 10 minutes before scheduled departure," Smith wrote in a blog post on Monday. "But as we reached the gate, we saw a man closing the door ... We told him we were on the flight and he told us it was too late; the flight was closed. It was 11:36."

Weight-loss reality star Ruby Gettinger knows how Kevin Smith feels.

"The first time I went on a plane I was close to 700 lbs. and I had no idea how small the seats were," says Gettinger. "The man sitting next to me was not happy at all! I felt so bad!"

Gettinger, who stars on the Style Network's Ruby, has lost nearly 400 lbs. since that flight, but flying still isn't easy, she tells PEOPLE. "After that experience, I never flew without a friend to sit next to me, or I would buy two seats."

Kevin Smith 'Too Fat' to Fly Southwest

Originally posted 02/14/2010 04:10PM

Kevin Smith's most famous role is a guy who rarely speaks. But he's got a lot to say – much of it profane – after being kicked off a Southwest Air flight because he didn't fit comfortably into the seat.

"You [messed] with the wrong sedentary processed-foods eater!" Smith, whose next film, Cop Out, comes out Feb. 26, posted on Twitter.

It was one of many Tweets recounting the actor/director's humiliating expulsion Saturday from the Oakland-to-Burbank, Calif. flight. Southwest said in a statement airline officials had called Smith to offer their "heartfelt apologies," but also stated his removal was for the "safety and comfort of all customers."

It's no secret that Jennifer Aniston is devoted to the carb-limiting Zone Diet, but what about her perennially buff husband, Brad Pitt? Evidently he still lets himself indulge in pasta. Our spies spotted him at West Hollywood Italian eatery Il Sole recently, and after he greeted pals Courteney Cox and David Arquette (there without baby Coco), he returned to his dining companion (a business associate) and his plate of spaghetti with clams. Sharon Osbourne also enjoyed dinner there the same night.

March 19, 2004 TUNE IN Bachelor Bob Guiney is returning to television – sort of. Posters for his solo CD, 3 Sides, will hang on the walls of a record store set on the long-running soap All My Children beginning March 31. How did it happen? Wanting to make the new set look as realistic as possible, producers have been contacting record labels in search of promotional posters. Executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers called AMC star Rebecca Budig to see if her beau, Guiney, would be willing to have his posters displayed. "Rebecca called Bob and Bob said, 'Please!'" says an on-set source.
