Season 7 of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' drew to a close on Tuesday night with Whitney Way Thore getting engaged to Chase Severino on top of the Eiffel Tower. With each passing season, fans of the show have been convinced that most of the elements showcased in TLC's reality show based on Whitney's life are fake.

A recent tweet from a viewer reads, "My Big Fat Fabulous Life = My Big Fat Fake Life. Creative, I know."

This season, fans were particularly commenting on Whitney and Chase's relationship and were convinced that everything about it is fake. Another thing that recently came to light was an instance from Season 4, where a guy walks up to Whitney at an event and tells her that it's a good thing she's on the radio because people wouldn't be able to watch her on TV.

The incident was captured on camera and was played as something that really happened. However, a fan recently uploaded a photograph from that day highlighting that the guy was miked up, implying it was a staged incident. 

Fans have also raised concerns over Whitney's friendship with Heather Sykes. According to a Reddit thread, Whitney never considered Heather as her friend and only got close to her so that she could control her relationship with Buddy Bell (Whitney's best friend and ex-roommate).

After Buddy and Heather broke up, Whitney made out with Buddy and even lived with him for a while, upsetting Heather and fans did call her out on this behavior.

Fans think Whitney is jealous of Heather and their speculations were further validated when she looked uncomfortable when her business partner, Ryan Andreas, kissed Heather at a gathering.

"I think Whitney is jealous of Heather, and it’s clear when she discourages anything between Heather and Ryan," wrote a fan. While another comment read, "You could see the smoke coming out of Whitney's ears when Heather and Ryan kissed this season. Whitney was so jealous, and basically said, "If I can't have him, you can't either." The same with Buddy, she did everything she could to discourage/sabotage that relationship."

Fans also feel that Whitney is jealous of Heather because, unlike her, the latter has children and is physically much more attractive. They also pointed that she's civil towards her other friend, Ashley, because she's on the heavier side but noted that a sourness developed between them after Ashley gave birth.

"Whitney is jealous of Heather because Heather has children and is not chubby.. Ashley she is okay with because Ashley is chubby too albeit 1/2 Whitney but he has soured towards Ashley a bit since her daughter was born,".

The viewers also seem to have been complaining over Whitney's over the top personality, terming it 'annoying'.

"Also she is just so damn loud and annoying oml. I’ve really started to dislike her! I wouldn’t be able to be friends with her annoying ass," wrote one fan, and the sentiment was shared by multiple other tweets.

So far there's no news on Season 8 from TLC but what seems clear from the comments is that viewers won't be worried crazy if Season 7 is the end of Whitney's TV journey.
