Season 7 of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' has just begun airing and the initial episodes see Whitney Way Thore deal with her emotions in the aftermath of her ex-fiance Chase Severino cheating on her. Tuesday's (December 8) episode, began with Whitney relaying to the camera about how Chase had slept with another woman and was now expecting a baby with her.

She confessed to facing great difficulty to go on with her life knowing that the wedding that she was planning with so much fervor was no longer happening. Her best friend Buddy Bell was by her side helping her through her days that were laced with panic and anxiety attacks.

Next, it was her business partner and friend Ryan Andreas who came to visit. Whitney had been avoiding him for quite some time, mostly because he was also Chase's best friend. However, she couldn't do it endlessly considering she ran a business with him and he needed to be paid. 

Whitney appeared to be very cold to Ryan during the entire time he was there. She schooled him for not wearing a mask while out and about during the pandemic, as she should, and the conversation between the two shifted to work. He has been assisting Whitney with No BS Active, a subscription-based service that offers physical training for people of all sizes and abilities.

She had moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, to be close to Andreas so the two could work together. The two had later become friends and he was the one who introduced Whitney and Chase. Whitney was not ready to begin filming new workout videos with Ryan as she was not sure that he was taking quarantine as seriously as she was.

He suggested that they could still film using split-screen and practicing social distancing but she then told him that she'd not do so till she gets clear from her doctor about her health. The conversation between the two then shifted to Chase and he asked her if they'd spoken at all. Whitney refused to answer, she rebuked him saying she didn't understand why he'd ask her a question that he already knew the answer to.

However, Ryan clarified he wasn't speaking with Chase and was clueless about what was going on between the two. He then confessed to knowing that Chase was going to be a father before Whitney knew resulting in the latter looking super pissed. She then asked him if he knew that Chase was sleeping with the other woman and Ryan denied the same. 

Whitney also told him during the episode that she wasn't comfortable associating with him at this point knowing fully well that he knows certain things about Chase that she doesn't. This was not something that was sitting well with her. In a confessional, she also said that she didn't trust Ryan to tell her the truth about Chase. 

Whitney announced to the world in May that her relationship with Chase was over. Around the same time, fans began to speculate she and Ryan too had fallen out. To add to the same, Whitney recently shared the following on her No BS Active private Facebook group. “Unfortunately, NoBSactive is going to have to take a one-month hiatus as we make some changes,” the TLC star wrote.

“I apologize for how sudden this is, but due to current circumstances, it can’t be avoided. I have moved each members’ next charge date ahead one month. If you wish to cancel your subscription, you can do so. Thanks for your patience and I’ll have more info for you soon," according to Cheat Sheet. In October, fans on Reddit also noted that Whitney had unfollowed Ryan. 

Back then everyone thought that the hiatus must be Covid-19 related but fans saw Whitney being ice-cold towards Ryan on Tuesday's episode. Now the question is are Ryan and Whitney still friends? Gauging by what happened in the episode, it wouldn't come as a surprise if Ryan is axed from the show. Would you like to see him continue being a part of 'MBFFL' or would it be alright if he gets ousted from the show? Let us know in the comments. 

'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on TLC.
