Who is Ashley Sutton? '1000-lb Best Friends' star put on weight despite gastric surgery
When it comes to weight loss journeys, it always helps to have someone do it with you. That way, you not only have a support system but you can also be held accountable when you slip up. Four best Vannessa, Meghan, Ashely and Tina, their weight loss journey and friendship is now the highlight of TLC's '1000-lb Best Friends'.
As the synopsis of the series mentions -- "From camping to swimming in the ocean, these friends are determined to get out of the sedentary habits that have led them to where they are now. Whether it's exercise, doctors' appointments or therapy sessions, they'll rely on each other to get through it all. But with four big personalities, they are bound to ruffle each other's feathers. Will the gang be able to overcome their insecurities and self-doubt in time to attend their high school reunion as a fiercely fabulous, united front?" If you're a TLC fan, be sure to tune in to shows such as -- '1000-lb Sisters', 'My 600 lb Life', 'Darcey and Stacey' and '90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days'.
Who is Ashely Sutton?
While fans are familiar with Vannessa Cross and Meghan Crumpler, who first appeared on 'Too Large', they are now introduced to Tina Arnold and Ashely Sutton, who are also close friends with the reality stars. While the rest of the cast is rather active on social media, it looks like Ashely keeps a relatively low profile, seeing that not much is known about her, other than that she lives in Atlanta, Georgia and that she is a Spelman College alumni. While she is present on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, it seems as though she's cleared out most of her social media before the show. You can follow her @ashthebff on Twitter, Ash Thebff on Facebook and her Instagram handle is ashthebff.
Ashely mentioned that she is 36 years old and single and 'ready to mingle' in her video introduction. She's been struggling with weight for the past 30 years and even though she had gastric sleeve surgery, she somehow put back all the weight she lost. During the show, she weighed 378 lbs and hopes to lose that weight soon.
'1000-lb Best Friends' premieres on TLC and discovery+ on Monday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT.
