Gone are the days when the severe weight-loss show “The Biggest Loser” or the dating competition atrocity “More To Love” are the only shows on television with plus-size peeps. This past year has brought us “Huge,” a Nikki Blonsky-starring scripted show about teens at fat camp (which has since been canceled), and “Mike & Molly,” a sitcom about a plus-size couple in love (which prompted MarieClaire.com blogger Maura Kelly to pen an embarrassing post about how “fatties” repulse her).

And, uh, she took the above photo with him. “I believed him, so then I took this photo with him,” Chelsea said. “I thought I was being nice to him and it would maybe help me get you on the show.” Cee-Lo laughed and said, “Yeah, that’s not my brother.” Another highlight, when Chelsea asked him about the name of his new album, Lady Killer, and he said that he was “killing them with kindness.” Aww.
