Vannessa, Ashely, Tina and Meghan, the stars of '1000-lb Best Friends', have always had each other's back through thick and thin. While all four women are grappling with various issues in their own personal lives, they have now come together with solving one common problem, their health. Embarking on a weight loss journey together means that they can not only motivate each other but also hold each other accountable.

However, in friend groups, personalities often tend to clash, no matter how close you may all be. While Vannessa is loud and is known to make innuendos, Tina is quite the opposite and finds her humor crass. While they both seem to push each other's buttons, a certain incident seems to have taken their friction a little too far.

While the ladies were all out glamping, they noted that it was going to rain. Vannessa spoke about how she always associated rain with a happy childhood memory, where she and her siblings would play outside when it poured, naked. As she made the decision to move out of her sister's house, combined with wanting to get healthier, Vannessa decided to streak nude, as a form of rebirth. While her friends were shocked at her antics and laughed it off, Tina was clearly upset. She slammed Vannessa for trying to make fools out of them and spoke about how fat people are already seen as jokes. Vannessa argued that she was projecting her insecurities on her. By the end of the trip, the two refused to see eye to eye. Fans, however, were entirely on Vannessa's side.
