'My 600-lb Life': What happened to Anjeanette Whaley and Erica Andino? Insta bio hints couple may have split
'My 600-lb Life' finished airing its ninth season and told the stories of 13 morbidly obese people who took a shot at changing their lives with Dr Now's weight loss program. Some were successful, others not so much but audiences of the show tuned in week after week to watch these journeys, making it a highly successful season yet again. Beginning last week, TLC began airing a new season of 'My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?'.
Justin McSwain and Maja Radanovic came back for a second run on the show and the former ended up losing a ton of weight and his story ended on a hopeful and happy note. Annjeanette Whaley from Season 7 of the show is scheduled to appear in the second episode, which will air on April 7 and it seems like she won't have a positive end.
"There is much to be gained and lost for Brianne in year two of her journey, in which she both loses weight and gains independence. Getting back with Erica becomes the top priority for Annjeanette, who chooses love over even her own health," reads the summary of the episode and it pretty much gives away what is about to happen on the episode. So let's take a look at who Erica Andino is.
Who is Annjeanette Whaley's girlfriend Erica Andino?
Erica Andino was a huge part of Annjeanette's story and they had a fairly volatile relationship. The audiences were divided over the part that Erica played in Annjeanette's story - some saw her as an enabler while another section saw her as a positive influence. The much-in-love couple fought with each other towards the ending of the episode because of Annjeanette's food-sneaking habits which were proving to be a huge threat to her health.
The episode aired on April 3, 2019, but two days later, Erica posted a photograph of them together with the caption "the love of my life" clarifying that they had reconciled. However, it seems like they've once again gone their separate ways.
Are Annjeanette and Erica still together?
Annjeanette has listed Andino as her girlfriend on her Facebook account. However, Erica has not reciprocated on her page. The last photos of them together still remain on her page but they date back to 2019. Andino's Instagram account is set to private but her bio contains a couple of explosive lines where she's written about damaging relationships.
"I have been thru a lot n it has damaged me greatly. So much that I am permanently broken. But I have learned from my mistakes n gotten stronger. Gotta stay up," reads her bio, and judging by what viewers saw of her and Annjeanette on the show, it's not wrong to assume that it's about her moving ahead in life, leaving the relationship behind.
'My 600 lb Life: Where Are They Now' airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
