What is Chase Severino doing after engagement with 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' star Whitney Way Thore ended?
Season 8 of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' is currently airing. The star of the show Whitney Way Thore is moving ahead in her life sans Chase Severino whose side she never seemed to leave since 2018, the year they began dating. Season 7's finale that aired this year in March saw Chase going down on one knee in front of an unsuspecting Whitney on top of the Eiffel Tower, a move that was cocky yet cute and dreamy to a certain extent.
Their engagement was a long time coming, considering how much love and affection they showed each other since they got together in just a year of being together. A lot of fans would time and again point out that the relationship was just a facade they put up for audiences and there were no true feelings between them. However, the two of them continued to move ahead without a care in the world about the opinions that were thrown around. At least the show did a great job of packaging their relationship as a complete fairytale, one with its ups and downs but nothing very serious.
However, in May this year, Whitney deleted all of her photographs that featured Chase from her social media and the Internet had it's "finally" moment. They'd been anticipating their breakup since the time their relationship went public. Fans were of the opinion that their romance was just for show, there were even theories like Chase being in it for the fame, etc. however, none of it seemed to affect the couple. Much of what was being said turned out to be true as their relationship crumbled and Whitney had to announce to the world that she and Chase were a thing of the past. What led to the breakup was infidelity on the latter's end. Whitney hopped onto her page on May 22 this year and revealed she's no longer engaged to Chase after learning that she was being two-timed. Chase cheated on her with a woman who he knew for quite some time and the two were expecting a child together.
"Chase and I are no longer engaged. After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history. Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October," Whitney wrote in a post that no longer exists on her page. Whitney was devastated in the aftermath of her breakup. "For about five months, I was just a disaster [...] I was crying every day. I had Buddy [Bell] with me, and I honestly couldn't function without him. He fed me every day. He did my laundry, walked my dog, fed my animals. I mean, just literally did everything for me," Whitney told People. However, she's come a long way since the breakup, immersing herself in work and tapping in on her creativity.
Chase too seems to be doing fine. He's having a great time fathering his baby girl Aurora Joyce Severino and his fur kid Piper, pictures of whom he often shares on his Instagram page.
'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' airs Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on TLC.
